(Ft. Dix/McGuire AFB, NJ) Hi 86 Lo 72 -- It's still humid, but the temperature is only in the 80's. It doesn’t make hitching up any cooler, but that’s ok, at least it wasn’t raining. Now that we're in the northeast, each of the next few moves will bring us to a new state on our full time journey. Today we crossed the Delaware Memorial Bridge into New Jersey.
There wasn't nearly as much traffic as we thought there would be. Everything was very smooth until we hit a detour for a bridge that was under construction. It was in the countryside between I-295 and our destination, Fort Dix. We had to take some back roads through a couple of small towns and we were hoping we wouldn't come across any underpasses that were too low. We finally got to the right road and all was well. It’s just something you deal with on the road pulling a large fifth wheel.
We’re at Willow Pond RV Park (famcamp) on Ft. Dix, a large Army base that adjoins McGuire AFB. There’s only 10 sites, all with 30-amp electric and water (a dump station is nearby). There’s a line of trees behind us separating us from the road.
And a small lake in front of us across a small grass field.
The view down the street. Six of the ten sites are currently vacant.
After getting set up we drove around the base looking for the Burger King. (Burger King must have an exclusive contract with the government because there's a Burger King on every military base we've ever been on.) It's sure different being on an Army base compared to an AF base. All kinds of tanks, humvees, and armored personnel carriers. Like Jim said, the Army plays with different toys than the Air Force. :) I’ll get some photos posted later this week. We found the Burger King and had some lunch, then came back and settled in. Jim found out online that there's a Pizza Hut on base and they deliver to the RV park. That takes care of dinner! :) We’re getting together with some RVing friends this week, so we’ll have plenty to report.
