Dilemna

Woodbine, Georgia

We’re still trying to decide where to go.  We really would like to stay in one place for a while.  We do not like this style of travel.

We left Vero Beach at 8:30 am…..a record for us.  We got on I-95 and headed north.  Tropical Storm Isaac is not cooperating and the two best hurricane models were in complete disagreement.  

We decided to head to south Georgia.

Sherry posted about seeing many power company trucks on the road, and we saw them as well.  I also tried very hard to get a good photo when I saw a bunch all together.  I was not very successful at it either, Sherry.   I guess they are expecting mass power outages for the state of Florida.

We ended up about 244 miles up the road in Woodbine, Georgia.  We pulled into the same campground that David and Sherry stayed the night before.

It’s an ok overnight spot with narrow, grassy sites.  It would have looked a lot better if the grass had been mowed.

The nice thing about this Passport America park is the price and the little path to the boardwalk.

It was a lovely place to have happy hour, despite the noise from the interstate.

We unhooked the truck and took a drive over to Crooked River State Park.

It’s a typical Georgia park….lots of pine trees.

The outside roads were paved and wide.  The campground was pretty nice but a lot of the sites would be difficult to maneuver a large rig into.  They had one part of the campground closed down (as typical for Georgia).  It may have had better options.

This morning we got up and watched the sunrise from the boardwalk.

We needed some down time.

We really don’t know where to go to avoid heavy winds from Isaac.  It’s now moving towards the west, but they are still predicting a right turn once it makes landfall.  That right turn may just put it coming towards us.

We sure would like to stay here for a few days.  There is a lot to see and do in this area, but I think we should move on.

  1. At least for today Nashville looks good. We spent last night on Adairsville, Ga. Good weather there so far. I worry about tornadoes. Stay safe.

    1. good to know. Are you back in your old home town yet?

      I know it's going to be a hard week. Know that we're thinking of you both.

  2. I think you've made a good choice, heading North. Hope you can get a chance to relax and have no worries from Isaac.

    1. Thanks Paul....that means a lot coming from you. Although Isaac is trending west for now, it could change and we don't want to run out of options. Right now we're about a day ahead of it. We don't drive at night (knock on wood)

      If you see anything else please let us know.

  3. Hope you find a spot out of Issac's path. Mother Nature doesn't seem to care about our RV plans. We've been chased out by floods and rock slides so far, luckily no hurricanes yet.

  4. As I said, Pennsylvania should get you out of the worst wind. A few years ago the dregs of a hurricane made it up to Gettysburg, but I think it was mostly rain.

  5. Just don't forget that Labor Day Weekend is coming up. Be sure you have a place to stay. Not always easy to find on those holiday weekends...especially with a hurricane lurking. I am sure you are not the only ones heading north. Stay safe!!!

  8. I'm glad you didn't listen to me when I told you to go to Louisiana! Now it looks like maybe New Orleans or thereabouts.

  12. You should be looking good as Isaac is even going to mostly miss us in the FL panhandle (I hope):)
