2014 Trips

2014 Trips


We kick off our camping season with a trip to Sesquicentennial State Park, Columbia, SC April 4-6, 2014.   This two night trip will kick off our camping season.  Plus we got our campsite 50% off which is always good.  Well be camping with Sharon, Becky and some of our camping family.

Spring Break -- Our next scheduled trip is to Huntington Beach State Park, Murrels Inlet, SC. April 20-25.  Let's hope we don't loose any of this trip due to the dreaded snow make-up days!!


The 7th Annual Blue Ridge T@B (and friends) Rally.  This year the Rally is back at Raccoon Holler Campground.  We plan on being there May 1-4.  This is always a fun time!


Memorial Day Weekend.  Yes, we too are camping on a holiday weekend.  We will be at Ft. Hamby COE Campground, North Wilkesboro, NC.  This will be a three day camping trip only about 1.5 hours from home.  We snagged the last campsite less than two weeks from this holiday weekend.

The 2014 r-pod Eastern Round Up (ERU).  This year's round up will be at Carter Caves State Park, KY June 19 - 22.  We plan on arriving June 18th, and staying through June 24th, with some other podding friends.

Here's a picture I borrowed from the Kentucky State Parks Website.  


We're back to Huntington Beach State Park in Murrells Inlet, SC for a week July 7th - 12th.  We love this quite laid back campground right just over the dunes from the beach.  


Well we're gonna squeeze in one more summer trip.  We're going to Toe River Campground in Burnsville, NC.  Our trip dates are July 21-24, and we're going to be camping with Cousin Sharon and Splash T@B.  Our plan is to use this campground as a base to explore this part of the mountains for a few days.

The 2014 F.R.O.G. Rally at the Elkhart County Fairgrounds in Goshen, IN.  The rally dates are August 3rd - 9th.  Our travel dates are something like August 1st - 10th.  We had a ball here last year and look forward to this years rally which is going to be even bigger.

Mountain Stream Un-rally!!  This will be just a weekend trip with Splash, Cousin Sharon and some other North Carolina Camping Friends at Mountain Stream RV Park in Marion, NC Sept. 5-7, 2014.   This campground was the location of the 1st Blue Ridge T@B Rally.

School on Saturday.  That's right, Rob is going to take a soap making class at The Soap Shed in Spruce Pine, NC.  Because of a missed turn, we checked out a new campground, and are going to make a weekend of it.  The weekend of Oct. 3-5, we're staying at the Linville Falls Trailer Lodge and Campground.  This is perfect because Trisha can drop Rob off for class, then not have to worry about driving up and down the steep grades of the mountains with Truck.

Note:  We enjoyed our weekend so much we went back to the same Campground for the weekend of Oct 24 -26, and we had another great trip!


Christmas at the Coast!!  This year, we will be doing a little something different for Christmas.  We will be a Hunting Island State Park on the South Carolina Coast.  Dates of this trip are December 23-28.  We may even have a small Christmas tree!
