Weekend Getaway, March 16-18, 2012

For this first camping trip of the 2012 Season, we decided to return to Stone Mountain State Park in Roaring Gap, NC for a weekend get away.  We are planning on going camping with Sharon, Becky and Splash-T@B two weeks later, but we wanted to get an early jump on the season.  Our first trip here was in the long, long trailer! 
Here's a picture from the North Carolina State Park's website.

Great Trip!  Check out our blog posts about it!


Mayberry Campground, March 30 - April 1, 2012.

We are planning a weekend trip with Splash T@B, Sharon, Becky?, and I'm not sure who else this weekend.  It will be to Mayberry Campground  in Mt. Airy, NC. We don't have reservations yet, but that is only because it is early in the season and we are waiting to make sure we don't have any weird weather.

Here's a link:  Mayberry Campground.

Update: Great time!! Always enjoy camping with our cousins!!!


Spring Break, April 2012.

Edisto Island State Park, SC.  April 8 - 12.  Five nights.  If we have snow days between now and then, we may loose part or all of this trip.  Keep your fingers crossed for no snow.

Update:  We had a great trip, and are making plans for next Spring Break!


Blue Ridge T@B Rally, May 2012

Raccoon Holler Campground, Glendale Springs, NC.  This is always a fun trip.  With T@Bs, T@DAs, r-Pods, an Airstream, pop-ups, Vans, you name it.  But we have fun!

UPDATE:  We had a great time!!!  Thanks Sharon (and Becky too) for all the hard work you do to make this a great rally!


Warrior Creek COE Campground.  June 1-3, 2012.  North Wilkesboro, NC.  

This will be a weekend trip to a campground we haven't been to in several years.  Here's the picture from the reservations website for our campsite.  

Update:  Due to bad weather Friday afternoon and evening, we cancelled this trip and had an "un-camping" weekend.  

r-Pod Round Up.  June 14 - 17.  Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, KY.  This was the site of the 2011 Eastern r-Pod Round Up.  Podders are already planning to get together here again.  

UPDATE:  Wow, what a great trip!!!  We enjoyed seeing old friends and making new ones!! Can't wait until next year.


June 25th - June 29th (four nights)  Cape Hatteras, NC. (OBX)  We decided on June 21st to go on this trip since most of the chores and projects were caught up, and there were no appointments of any sort.  We will be staying the the Cape Hatteras KOA.

Borrowed from the net.
Update:  This was a great trip.  Weather was perfect, and the beach was wonderful.  


July 14 - July 20:  Blue Ridge Parkway Cruise.  We are planning on Cruising the Blue Ridge Parkway starting at Mile Post (MP) 469 in Cherokee, NC to roughly MP 160 close to Woolwine, Va. 

We plan on spending two nights at Moonshine Creek Campground in Sylva, NC., the next night at Spruce Pine Campground in Spruce Pine, NC., the next night at New River State Park outside of West Jefferson, NC, and the last two nights at Fairy Stone State Park, in Stuart, VA.  As a bonus, our camping cousin Sharon of Splash T@B will be joining us at Spruce Pine for the rest of the trip.  

UPDATE:  We had a great trip.  Saw lots of wonderful scenery, spent lots of time with cousin Sharon, and got to try three new to us campgrounds too!


Labor Day Weekend 2012.  We are doing something we said we'd never do, and that's to go camping on Labor Day Weekend.  We are going to Raccoon Branch Campground in the Jefferson National Forest of VA.  We've camped at another NFS campground close to here, but it was full Labor Day weekend.   We are going to try this one instead.  It only has 20 sites, 15 amp electrical service, water at the site, and no bathhouse. But it is supposed to have WIFI.  

Here's the picture from recreation.gov 's website:  

Site #15
Update:  We had a great camping trip.  The campground was nearly deserted.  The 15 amp service turned out to be 30 amp service.  There were no bathhouses, but there were flush toilets.  We will return to this campground again.


Christmas Break at the Beach.  We are going to Hunting Island State Park, SC  Dec 26th - Dec 31.  Wonder if we'll see Santa Hangin' at the beach.  This will be our last trip of the 2012 camping season.  

Update:  This was another awesome trip.  The campground is just beautiful.  We will be sure to go back here again.
