We got off to a late start this morning, but it was worth the extra time at Beaver Run. The owner came over and knocked on our door this morning to drop off a couple of freshly baked chocolate cookies. They were still hot when she handed them to me. She said that because we couldn’t make it to the dinner they had last night she thought we might like the dessert. This was one of the most welcoming places we’ve stayed since we started traveling in Winnie. I will make sure to stop at Beaver Run RV park when we are in this part of Georgia again.

Except for short stints on I75 and I20 most of today’s trip was on US 1. It is a really nice 4 lane highway much of the way through Georgia, but turns into a rough 2 lane highway in South Carolina. The route took us through Augusta and within 3 miles of Augusta National Golf Club. We didn’t stop because I wasn’t sure I could get Winnie in. We’ll have to plan on stopping if we are passing near again.

We stopped in Lexington, SC at the Barnyard RV Park. It’s right next to the Barnyard Flea Market. Not sure why they call it Barnyard because there are no barns or farms anywhere near us. We stopped here on our way to Florida in 2008 on our first extended trip in Winnie. It was before I started this trip journal so there are no stories from that trip except we spent Thanksgiving in Macon, GA and cooked a turkey breast in the oven for our Thanksgiving dinner. Winnie has put on some 72,000 miles since November 2008. We’re hoping for a few more before she retires.
