The RV-Dreams Rally
Today we had to get up early, pack and get on the road to the Rally in Longs, SC. After dumping, we hit the road about 11 (I know, early, schmerly). Route 95 was OK. and we were nearing our exit and then it happened. A couple of mobile signs said "suggest alternate route - road work ahead', but since we had 2 seconds to our exit we kept going straight - right into stopped dead traffic. Yuck. We crawled for an hour to our exit and then everything was fine. Wow - WillowTree RV Resort was like entering a country club. Easy check in and then we were escorted to our spot by Joe on a golf cart. We have sewer! I threw a load of wash in, and we grabbed our chairs and drinks and walked over to the 'Palace' (Linda and Howard's site) where there were a bunch of people already in a circle. More and more RV Dreamers arrived and we found ourselves next to EagleShea and his wife Terri. Eagleshea (John) was the kayaker we met on the Myakka River in Florida on our maiden voyage [with the alligators]. EagleShea is his forum sign-in name (because he likes eagles!) We are going to have a ball here, I know it. Everyone is so nice, and amazed that we have been fulltimers for one week! Even Tasha ventured out right away and viewed the park from her harness and rope - which she escapes from all the time. We got to tour some rigs of members and one really original one had a smart car that was painted to match his truck. It parks in the back and rides! Cute, eh?
