It’s FriYay! Our RV journey continues into the weekend!
We woke up feeling refreshed in Wilmington. It was really the first time we felt rested! First task of the day… to empty the tanks 😳. We (really Phil) put on gloves and worked it out while Peyton supervised.
Then we had breakfast, got some work done and prepared to hit the road. The kids made friends and enjoyed exploring the park with them – and how they have pen pals in San Antonio, TX. What a truly cool experience from our RV journey. I do have to say, most everyone has been so friendly and welcoming!
Once we were packed up we left Wilmington and made our traditional road trip stop at… Dollar Tree! We learned on our first long road trip to Charlotte that Dollar Tree is a great stopping point while on the way. There are drinks, snacks, kids activities, and a bathroom if the kids need it! This time however we only needed a few items (love those super large ziploc bags for organizing) and then we were on our way.
We had some challenges with the RV on this leg, but let’s hope they don’t repeat themselves. Unfortunately the RV Rental owner was stumped and so were we. Nothing to do with safety, but something we don’t want to have to worry about.
On this leg of the trip, I had the chance to drive. That was an experience – it’s kind of like driving an old SUV. Remember the ones that swayed every time a semi passed? Except it’s always swaying and don’t let a semi pass! A bit nerve wracking but we managed for the few hours until Phil couldn’t take being a passenger any more.
The best part of arriving at the KOA in Myrtle Beach… we found our friends! After 5 days on the road, we met up with our friends and their children. The kids were over the moon to see their ‘cousins’ and we were thrilled to have fellow travelers and friends for this adventure!
We were so happy to see them – we didn’t have any photos, but a good time was had by all! And now, we look forward to two days without anyone asking, “AreVthereYet?”
