    Statesville, NC - Statesville/I-77 KOA

    February 16, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 6 °C

    Today started with snow falling. Can't seem to leave the white stuff behind us. Thankfully it only stuck to the ground areas and not the streets. We managed an uneventful trip, taking in all the interstate splendor, and arrived in Statesville, NC, safe and sound.

    Why Statesville? No particular reason, except that we ranged our mileage limit and our campground of choice, a KOA, is in Statesville.

    It appears our 2 day stay here will be a quiet one. Time for a "time out" from driving.

    We apparently have selected the right spot for some quiet time. Statesville is a modest little city, surrounded by diary farms, corn and soybeans. It appears it's only claim to fame it is only 40 miles north of Charlotte, NC. Supposedly, Statesville's ancestors were stoic and unassuming. This foundation has given rise to a friendly, humble, hard working, gentle community. Probably not a bad place to live if quiet and unassuming is your lifestyle of choice.
