Before I get into the bulk of this post I just wanted to let everyone know that The Ozz Man is doing MUCH better and his wound from the crazy incident is almost completely healed. A big thanks to everyone for your comments, texts and phone calls to check in on him. He sends you many many kisses!
After we left North Carolina we continued our journey south to our next stop, Skidaway Island State Park, just a short distance outside Savannah. After falling in love with the park during our stay last year, we came to the conclusion that it will forever be a place to rest our heads while traveling along the I95 corridor. We really enjoy the serenity of the park, how well the sites are laid out and the very friendly staff working there. During our previous stay, we were told that the campground was currently under construction for future improvements, that they were adding sites with sewer hook ups. Bonus! In our minds that could only make a park we adored even better.
We arrived about an hour before sunset, which was plenty of time to scope the park out and pick a good spot. Unlike many other state parks, Skidaway doesn’t assign or make you pick a site when you book your stay. So you are free to choose a spot that suits your needs. We drove around the familiar part of the park and then ventured into the ‘new and improved’ section. They had indeed added sewer (and cable) as well as 10 new pull thru sites. Those spots were great, but we were looking for a little more seclusion so we headed over to the back-in sites and found a great spot.
Any RV’r will tell you…having full hook ups is fabulous. Whether you are a weekend warrior or are in it for the long haul, it’s a huge perk. With full hook-ups you don’t have to take military showers or wash the dishes in a tiny trickle of water for fear of filling up your holding tanks. When you have full hook-ups at your site you can dump your tanks as needed rather than have to move your entire RV (or roll your portable holding tank) over to the dump station to do so. It’s very convenient. There are plenty of camping areas that have them, from KAO’s to resort RV parks, but many of the state parks we camp at don’t have them. So it goes without saying, that we were very happy with the changes.
Since we had already visited Savannah last year we decided this time around we would mostly hang out in the park, get some organizational things done in our rig and spend time with the dogs. We planned on making a short trip to the city at some point for lunch or dinner.
Fran was also very adamant on attempting to get the steps fixed. So on a chilly, rainy afternoon, we headed over to Camping World with the motorhome. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the means to fix the steps and they didn’t have the 3 step set our rig has (even though they told us they could fix it with no issues when we called them, sigh). So our only options were to turn around and leave or have them put on a 2 step set. A couple hours later we left with our steps ‘fixed’ as much as they could be. So although it’s not quite what it was, it is great to not have to jump down or climb up into our house now! The dogs are incredibly happy about the fix as well.
After a day of organizing and another afternoon spent getting the step issue taken care of, we decided to head into Savannah for a short trip. Mostly for food, drink and sweets! Later that evening I built a cozy fire and set up my camera for some time lapse, which I will hopefully upload soon when I get a better signal. We roasted marshmallows, discussed plans for our next stop and then just chilled out. It was a great way to spend our final evening in one of our favorite places.
This morning was Moving Day, so we packed up the rig and headed out. We are currently on our way heading further south…to see Mickey Mouse and friends. We’ll be spending the holiday there, something I haven’t done since I was a youngin’! The weather is great, traffic is clear and it looks like we are on schedule so far 🙂
Till next time…
