Road Trip – Day 1

From Wake Forest to Atlanta, GA.

We left at 7 a.m. – really, and truly, on Christmas Day. The traffic was very light – thankfully – until about Greenville, SC. The rain held off until we were about an hour away, but that was when the fun began.

We got off 85 and switched to GA Rte 20, because our KOA was north of the city – but it was NOT interstate and certainly tough to do after being in the saddle all day. We made landfall at the KOA at 4:15 p.m. and were set up (but no water or heat – the heat, well, furnace blew a fuse! – and the water, well, it was too dark to really see) by 5:00. Our family met the soon-to-be in-laws for a night of festivities, gift giving, gorging, and general getting to know each other.

The thing about RV’ing – the other folks that do it are so friendly. When Mom and Al were out there trying to figure out what was wrong with the furnace, two neighbors came by to assist. One was a tech from Camping World, another a traveler from Victoria, BC, with a bunch of different fuses in a case. We now have a mission – buy extra fuses.

Today is a rest day – we’re off to the Marietta Marketplace to do a little shopping and chatting with Ty and his fiancee.

Happy Boxing Day!
