"On the Road Again"September 29, 2017 in the United States
Happily, our little van sat waiting for us unharmed. Other than our Garmin and GoPro hanging from their cords because their suction cup holders had let go, all was just as we left it. We managed to get the battery hooked up and window coverings off before the rain came pouring down.
As far as hurricane damage goes, so far all we have noticed are piles of branches and palm fronds gathered in piles throughout the neighbourhoods. Then heading north along the interstate there were many blown out highway signs.
We realize some time ago that we probably didn't give ourselves enough time for this leg of our journey. A little over 2 weeks to go from a Florida to PEI means we will have to spend a fair amount of our time traveling on interstate highways, just to get some distance behind us. So today was one of those days, spending hours on the I95, through many cloud bursts, past mundane highway views. Before we knew it we past the state line into Georgia! We decided that since Savannah is one those places we wanted to spend some time in we decided to put a long day in today, so we can have a much easier day tomorrow exploring this city.
We settled into our Savannah South KOA spot, backing onto a "river". No swimming though!!! Also no sitting outside in the beautifully warm evening as the damn noseeums drove us inside. Only to discover our fridge may NOT be working. Okay....that's more than enough for day one.....I need a drink!
