|We were on the road by 7 am, knowing both parties had a long haul ahead. We stopped at the Georgia Welcome Center to eat lunch. Dave was determined to drive into North Carolina if possible. We had very few campgrounds available on I-20 in Georgia and nothing in South Carolina until we hit Columbia – it which case we might as well keep going on down to Charleston! I picked a Georgia State Park about 6 miles off the interstate – Hard Labor Creek. We drove through the lovely little town of Rutledge to get to the campground. It looks like Mayberry. The campground itself was terrific – every Georgia state park we’ve been to has been top notch. We would really like to come back and spend a few days. It was the most peaceful, tranquil setting – and I’d love to walk around downtown Rutledge. We had absolutely no cellular service, but we did have cable tv! To get wifi I had to take the cell phone up to the office to call Marka, then Dave & Jean to let them know we were off the road for the night. Dave said they still had about an hour to go to get to their camp in Blacksburg, NC. Tomorrow will be an easy drive into Charleston.
