King's Mountain Kick-Off.....

Happy Friday afternoon everyone!!  Splash T@B and R&T'S-Pod are back in action again, this time hosting the season opening King's Mountain Kick-Off at Kings Mountain State Park in Blacksburg, SC.

This is the 3rd year we along with Cousin Sharon have taken advantage of a South Carolina State Parks half-price weekend camping as our middle of March season opener.  You have to make the reservations back in the winter, and have very narrow window of time to get the special weekend rate.  You never know what the weather will be though.

This year we will have some rain, but that's just fine.  Rob took Friday off, arrived early and had camp set-up before the rain started.  Trisha and Jackson will be here in an hour or so, and then the weekend will be officially underway.  Tomorrow morning should be a little rainy, but Sunday is forecast to be great.

We are here with several T@B's, another Pod, and even one vintage camper.  Rob said he will post some camper pictures tomorrow.   But today, it's just the stars of the show, Splash and Pod.

After getting set-up, Rob went to check-in and on the way back, found what must have been in years past as swimming lake (and may still be), complete with bath house, dam, swimming platform, and a few paddle boats.   Here are a few pictures of it all.

And finally a pre-revolutionary war log-home that serves and the ranger headquarters and temporary campground headquarters.  

Well that's about it for today.  Supper will be steaks on the new Coleman Roadtrip grill and salads.  Check back tomorrow evening to read more about our weekend.

Until next time, stay safe out there.....-Just Rob (for now)
