Ditto on the not seeing many Airstreams. We only spotted three other Airstreams while on our two week trip. One newer wide body, one restored clasic (a real beauty!) and one Airstream 180 RV.
What's up here? Did all of the other AS owners stay home on Christmas?

My wife, armed with an atlas and a smartphone lined us out for two nights here, a night in Little Talbot island for New Years and then somewhere else in Florida on the beach Tuesday night. That leaves us only technically homeless for Wednesday night, because Thursday starts out reservations at Canopener!
Yep, this is how to do it in most instances, in our humble opinion. . You will likely not have trouble finding something for Wednesday night.

If you have an iPad, iPhone or smartphone, there is a great app called Campwhere, which shows on a map all the public campgrounds and then provides a link to specifics on each. It is free and wonderful. We have found just a couple of errors in the last couple years of use.

We like to also pick up a free state map for each state we go into, which frequently has not only public campgrounds listed but interesting sites you might otherwise miss, such as small, local museums.

Travel safe,


Maggie

We did get down to river street. We didn't eat anything down there except for pralines b/c we had ribs and chicken quarters on the smoker back at Ft. Mcallister.

The pralines were delicious, especially the hot ones they were giving out as samples.

We should have brought our dog, everyone else seemed to have. Old historic Savannah is a very dog-friendly community.

We just got home yesterday and this thread makes me want to hook up and go right away. We dashed by Road Ruler and Hoover Beach on Dec 17, saw 1 other Airstream at Rock Hill and hooked up shore power at Edisto Island on Dec. 19. Only half a dozen campers and an empty beach except for those of us from the frozen north who thought the weather was great. One other Airstream at the camp ground belonging to Sue who was trying to sell her 31? Ft Classic. Traffic in Charleston was terrible except for downtown which seemed to be relaxing comfortably in a finer era. We spent Christmas in Fort Lauderdale at the finest ( most cost effective) campground in America. ( my son's front yard) We headed north via 75 in order to miss the nasty weather in West Virginia and saw two Airstreams and 5 million MH and 5th wheels headed south. 14.7 mpg. About 3000 miles. Now I have to go to work on Tuesday.

What a haul! We've got 1100 miles so far, we've seen four Airstreams and one Six Metre single axle Argosy (I'd never seen one of those). We spent the night last night on Little Talbot Island state park and I highly recommend this place.

It's 7:45 in the morning and over fifty degrees already here, we're cooking breakfast outside. Do we have to go home?

Today it's St Augustine and then Gamble Rogers Park for tonight. Tomorrow we're looking at Manatee Springs and then we'll see a lot of you at Canopener!

Is that not one of the most beautiful areas, ever?

So glad you were able to get on the road.

Travel safe,


Maggie

It's awesome over here, and we're taking the A1A down the coast with a day in St Augustine.

Apparently Steph did well reserving spots on the road. Gamble Rogers Memorial State Park.

Our neighbors in the 27' Excella from Ottowa had to reserve ten or eleven months in advance. We'll attribute our good luck to being real flexible and only staying one night filling in holes between reservations.
