Off The Road

Just got back from a 17 day excursion in my AS motorhome. 2 kids, the dog, and my co-pilot, plusall the recreational stuff we could safely carry; bikes, inline skates, pool toys, balls and gloves, frisbees, and so on.
Also a video camera, and 3 or 4 - 35mm cameras.
Hit SC - a small private park- nothing to report other than the pool was cool and the showers were hot.
NC- Bandits Roost State Park (Corps of Engineers lake- Kerr) very nice wooded park with good facilites (no sewage hook up) and a very pretty lake in the mountains north west of Charlotte.
VA- Shenandoah KOA, as reported earlier this was a gem. Great facilities, and a beautiful setting. Temps hit 100+ here, but my AS never passed 180 degrees uphill on the way.
PA- Hershey Highmeadow Campground- in Chocolateland. Nice place, good facilities, very busy though ( to be expected right before 4th of July). Had a great time - shuttle bus goes to local attractions and is free. Showers were a bit crowded at peak times, but we were in NO RUSH>
DE- Rehobeth Beach area- 3 Seasons Rv Resort- stayed here 1 night as the state park was already full (430 spaces!!) Great place, near the beach. Has a nice pool, pretty setting with good facilities. Expensive though at 50 bucks for the family. Nice to find a spot on July 3rd though with no prior reservations.
VA beach- parked at a relatives for the weekend.
NC- High Point Lake RV- on the way home 60 miles N of Charlotte off I 85. Nice park- fair prices, but no water in the lake due to severe drought. Too bad for their business, although the campground had a lot of over nighters like us.

Can report we saw 4 or 5 Airsteam trailers, and not one Classic motorhome the whole 17 days out. Did see some nice older Motorhomes of other breeds like GMC though. Had many lookers at ours, and a lot of drivers scratching their heads as we went by. My 20 year old ride rode well, had only a minor
problem, and was very comfortable and enjoyable. Think I'll keep it!!

Where are you guys hiding??

Most places we camp, we are the only Airstream in the park. Last weekend we were at a campground in NE Ohio, and there was a '67 set up as a seasonal. Sadly, people in the park told us the owners rarely show up.

Diane got a real kick out of a couple that cruised by our trailer in their golf cart and stopped to look. The gentleman pointed at our unit and said to his wife, "Now there's an expensive trailer!". She tells me a lot of people point and smile at our AS as we travel to our desinations.

I shot digital video which i am editing some before I post stills from it.
We saw 1 other Airstream motorhome, parked on roadside in DE. A few trailers on the road, but not many. Did see two old GMC motorhomes in different parks. One totally unrestored, the other about half done, from the outside anyway.

GMC Motorhome

A gentleman who lives next to a field I farm has a GMC motorhome. He invited me over for a beer one evening, and I got a tour of it. Nice, but I like my trailer better.

Hi Alan,

Glad you enjoyed your AS and the trip. Three Seasons RV park, in Rehoboth Beach IS a great little park. The owners; Denny and Judy are really special people and they LOVE the folks that stay in the park. It is really wonderful to see how much they love the residents of the park. Glad you liked it. I see them every Friday morning early and I'll certainly pass the word that you had good words about the park there.
