We left Pittsboro in sleet and light rain. I thought this was supposed to be springtime! As we passed through Wake Co., we even saw a little snow. As we continued east, finally the skies cleared and the sun shone. We arrived at the North River Campground in Shawboro, NC, in mid-afternoon. Shawboro is in Currituck Co. in the northeast part of the state, about 12 miles past Elizabeth City. This is a privately-owned and operated campground in the middle of nowhere! However, it is a nice, well-kept campground, with sites surrounding a five-acre lake. The sites are back-in/pull-in so that all hook-ups are together between coaches. No sewer hoses near your picnic table. What a neat concept. The owners are friendly folks, eager to help you park and answer any questions or concerns. We were the first of the Travelin' Tarheels to arrive for our rally here. Danny and Sandi Jones arrived about an hour after us. More folks will come Tuesday and Wednesday. The rally officially begins on Thursday, but we wanted to have extra time to explore this part of the state.
