Hot in the Summer! ☀️ Elijah Clark State Park on the Georgia side of Lake Thurmond (thankfully) offers campsites open to larger areas of the lake, allowing the lake breezes to provide a little relief from the sweltering July weather. Of course, jumping INTO the lake also helps beat the heat! Come along on our long weekend trip to this lovely park, where we see a little bit of Revolutionary War history and learn some more about the fantastic camping opportunities here in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA).

Summer vacation 2020!! Our one and only week-long RV excursion for the year took us over to Wildwood Park, just across the Savannah River from our home base, and we definitely got a week's worth of fun and relaxation while there. We spent lots of time just chillin', but did get our adrenaline flowing (a little, anyway) with some bicycling on the park's trails. We also took out our inflatable "Banana Boat" kayak for the first time! Take a look for yourself and see just how much fun and sun can be crammed into one week on the shores of Lake Thurmond!

Join us as we do a full review of the park, showing you the variety of campsites available here, along with some other perks and amenities you might find interesting!

Thanks to the COVID-19 scare ruining our (and most everybody's) longer-distance travels this spring, it seems our camping "theme" of 2020 is turning into a tour of they myriad parks and campgrounds in a fifty-mile radius of our house! In this video, we visit Baker Creek State Park, another of the many RV camping spots up and down the Savannah River. Come along and see what we discovered at this quiet little boating and biking haven on the South Carolina side of Lake Thurmond... not that we had the chance to do either of those things this particular weekend...

Forest River includes a 17-inch Suburban LP griddle with all of its 2020 Mini Lite campers, which means we now have a griddle! Before we could play with this new cooking-toy, we had to "season" the griddle top. In this video, we'll show you the proper method for preparing your griddle top for its first "cook" (whether it's a Suburban or a Blackstone), and how ours turned out!

Mistletoe State Park was our destination for this long-overdue return to RVing! It's a fairly short ride for us, being just outside of Appling, GA, meaning we spent more time camping and less time driving! Take a look as we show you the beautiful countryside on the way there, the gorgeous waterfront campsites on the shores of Lake Thurmond, and the lush almost-rainforest-like hiking trails that meander through the park. We were so happy to be released from "COVID Clamp-Down" that we'd have enjoyed this trip no matter what the park was like, but so much the better that we found it to be a great place to spend a long weekend with the "Aluminum Falcon!"

Looking for something to do during the "Lockdown?" Try changing out the stock shower head in your RV! Adding an Oxygenics Fury RV shower head is one of quickest and easiest modifications you can make to your camper! (...and let's face it - if it wasn't easy, we'd never attempt it!) Take a look us as we do the installation and try it out!
