Mission 012 - Seeing Fall's Colors at Watson Mill Bridge State Park

What better way to escape all of Halloween's hub-bub than by running off to northern Georgia to see some Fall colors!? In our latest YouTube video, you'll see that Watson Mill Bridge State Park outside of Comer, GA was where we spent a long weekend for this year's All-Hallow's Eve, enjoying the forest hiking trails, listening to the rolling South Fork River, and of course, seeing the famous covered bridge. Take a look at our stay in this lovely, peaceful little gem of a state park, and then plan your own trip there!

Mission 011 (Part 2) - Kings Mountain National Military Park

Our newest video is up on the YouTube channel! Our long weekend at the Kings Mountain parks continued with our Saturday visit to the National Military Park, the site of the Battle of Kings Mountain in 1780. We lucked into visiting on the weekend before the October 7th anniversary of the battle, so there were lots of goings-on with re-enactors and other demonstrations to see, in addition to the lovely forest hike. Take a look at our jaunt through this historical place and see yet another fine example of the great work the National Park Service does in preserving America's special places!

In our latest YouTube video, we jump into the fad and provide the answers to the questions that all of you our there have been dying to ask! (Just play along, folks - we have fragile egos...)

Mission 011 (Part 1) - Kings Mountain State Park

More video fun for you!! Fall camping season begins, although you'd never know it as we departed for Kings Mountain State Park. Early October was still brutally hot down here in the South, but that didn't stop us from going camping! Join us as we discover one of South Carolina's original state parks, up where North and South Carolina meet. This historic location is known for its extensive hiking and equestrian trails, the "Living History Farm" (which we explore), and fishing and paddling on Lakes Crawford and York. We camped, we hiked, we grilled... see how it happened over on our YouTube channel!!

SunTrust Park & Battery Atlanta - BASEBALL ROAD TRIP!!!

We have another video up on the YouTube channel! What do we do while we’re biding our time until our next RV adventure?  Well, there’s always baseball!  I mean, really - who in their right mind doesn’t love a beautiful day at the ballpark!?!?  On the first day of Autumn, we made a day-trip over to Atlanta to see the Atlanta Braves play their final home game of the season.  Take a look as we show you SunTrust Park, the home of the Braves, as well as Battery Atlanta, the new shopping/dining/entertainment community that is growing rapidly around the ballpark.

Campground Review - Lake Greenwood State Park, Ninety-Six, SC

One year of RV ownership!! To mark the occasion, we returned to the site of our “shakedown cruise,” our very first RV camping trip last September (2018), Lake Greenwood State Park! Since we’re a little more comfortable with the camping process this time around, we devoted a little more time to our surroundings so we could share our opinions with you. Take a look at our latest video over on the YouTube channel, as we take you around the park and show you its high points… and low points… so you can decide if you’d like to see this lovely camping destination for yourself!

American History, in Our Own Back Yard! (Well, almost...)

Yet again, we find places to explore fairly close to home! During our one-year-of-RV'ing anniversary trip back to Lake Greenwood State Park, we ventured over to Ninety-Six, SC to see the National Historic Site there. It's fascinating to walk the grounds and learn about the events that happened here, and how instrumental those events were in the creation of our nation. Situated amongst 1,000 acres of forest land, this site is another example of the fantastic job the National Park Service does at protecting significant places, keeping them beautiful and accessible to everyone. If you live nearby or are traveling through this portion of South Carolina, you definitely should devote a couple of hours to experiencing this great place!

See what we found there over on YouTube!
