2017 North Carolina Mountains travel blog

Our trip home from Summerton, SC to home on Nov 7th covered 280 miles with most of it I-95 and I-295. It was an easy drive that we have taken many, many times in the past. We did give the Mothership a final drink as we approached home so she would have a full tank and we could tally the trip's expenses which are summarized below.

RV Misc - 480.34 (wash, wax and misc. small items)
