Fall RV Trip - Day 3 - Leaving NC for VA ...

Today was pretty uneventful. But that’s not to say it was a bad day. On the contrary, it was a very good day. We woke to drizzling rain. And I like rain. This was how the RV looked when we woke up:

What a mess! But the girls are enjoying their accommodations.

We headed to breakfast at The Farmhouse. Country breakfast at its finest complete with every drink served in a Kerr wide-mouth mason jar. Surprise, we didn’t eat at Cracker Barrel! But this is a local place in Salisbury and it's great.

We headed back to Brandon’s grandmother’s house and proceeded to hang out. It was a lovely day, so we sat on the front porch (wish I had pictures) and chatted for a couple of hours before we realized we should probably get on the road again. Bummer. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the front porch and doing nothing but being a family. I wanted to go into the downtown area and take pictures and see some more things, but it was not to be.

We packed up the girls as they were heading back home with Brandon’s parents while we were heading north to Virginia. We got on the road with a brief stop in Greensboro, NC for a charging cord for the MacBook. Yes, I left it at home. Yes, they are $80. Yes, we bought one. And then we realized we were hungry and so we ate at Jake’s Diner. It was not bad, but OK diner food.

It was raining on our drive and got dark long before we reached the Virginia state line, so we didn’t stop at the welcome center to scope out the LOVE sign. Oh well. Maybe we’ll find another one. Supposedly there are several throughout the state. 

We’ve decided to head to Washington DC eventually this week, even with the shutdown. We might rebel and go into the monuments anyway. So if you see us on the news, be sure to let us know. And record it. 

But first we are going to Richmond, VA  and Monticello. I’m typing this as we’re driving and we have about 2 more hours until we arrive at the AmeriCamps Campground. They were super nice on the phone, so I hope the campground is good. We’ve been in our fair share of, let’s call them, interesting campgrounds. 

Let me just say ... this is the way to travel. Later!
