I'd like to thank everyone that writes comments to us on the blog. We learn through you and get quick responses. The overweight of 500 pounds to me sounds like a lot, Jim says it's only the weight of the generator, but we'll watch what we put in. Like they say, what goes in something goes out (guess that means same weighted item).
I hardly slept at all last night. I think that's going to be the norm when we move the next day. I get nervous till we are actually hooked up. We got up at 7:00 and had everything ready except the hitching by 8:50. We've been having trouble getting the hitch jaws to close around the kingpin. A nearby gentleman lubricated it and it then hitched right up. Lesson learned. We have some silicone spray somewhere in the basement.
We drove 220 miles. We left at 9:15 and got to the BASS LAKE RV CAMPGROUND at 2:00. We wanted to stay on the main highway, so came to Smithfield, NC, hit I95 then to Dillon, SC. There was a couple times we had very light rain, but the trip was nice and quiet.
The park is small but very nice. Wi-fi is low (but free). If the park was full the RV's would be close but still not as bad as we've seen on some of the blogs. The owner is very friendly and talked to us at quite a length on how the park is setup and what he plans to do with it. They bought it in 2008 and trying to get it going with more additions. There's a really nice bath house and a washer and dryer that looks brand new.
This is the play area if there's kids.

This is from our back window. There's not very many people here

Note the sign. This is the park owner's boat. He goes out on the lake to get floating golf balls that's hit from a driving range to the target areas in the lake.

We're staying here till Friday morning. It started raining an hour after getting here, so we made it in good time. It's suppose to rain all day tomorrow. We want some downtime tomorrow and just relax. There's plenty to do on the computers, and I need to do some more cleaning.
The RV-Dreams.com chatters told me there's going to be times you can't keep the RV clean. I found out yesterday just how bad it can get. It was very muddy and sandy at the last park and this one has sand too. We'd like to buy some Crocs, so we can come in and out of them faster then our shoes that we have to tie to do outside stuff.
We're in for the night. It's such a strange feeling to get up in the morning and be somewhere else with your own place just four hours later. What a deal!
