Jan 8, 2014 - Macon GA

1/8/14 We pull out of the campground in Dorchester SC around 0930. It is a little over a half mile drive down a very narrow dirt road to get out of the campground. It would not be my choice getting in and out but it has been a good campground, quite, clean and cheap. We are going about 270 miles today mostly west to Macon GA and closer to atlanta. We go west across SC mostly on secondary roads, beutiful day and nice drive. It was kind of neat to go by fields white not with snow but with cotton. We went through one town where they had a...

Sep 30, 2012 - Macon, GA - Claystone Park at Tobesoftkee Recreation Area

It was an easy 191 miles from Riverside, AL to Macon, GA. It was all interstate so not a lot to take pictures of. We are staying at the Claystone Park portion of the Tobesofkee Recreation Area. It is a great campground, probably one of the best we have stayed in. We have a large pull-through with a great lake view and 50 amps full hookup. We have fairly good Verizon and a clear shot to the satellite. We didn't do much here but relax and just enjoy camping. On Wednesday we did make a run out to the Ocmulgee National Monument. They have...

Apr 22, 2012 - Macon, GA

Yesterday we moved up I-75 a couple hundred miles to Lake Tobesofkee near Macon, GA. We found a full-hookup site in Claystone Park on the lakefront. We are spending two nights here and are very pleased with site and the park. We went to church and had dinner last night in Macon. Today has been a beautiful day and all three of us got in some running and walking. Tomorrow it's on to Gaffney!

Sep 5, 2011 - Labor Day Bonanza

Since this is the last BIG holiday of the camping season and we wanted to get away on short notice, we decided to try Arrowhead Park on Lake Tobesofkee in Macon, Ga. The truck had been giving me some issues with running so we decided to stay close to home in case it totally failed us. The park is located on the south side of Lake Tobesfokee in Macon, Ga and was ravished by a tornado a few years ago. Most of the large trees were wiped out, however we were able to get a spot with some tree cover. The first day there was nice and pleasant...

Going Fulltime

Aug 24, 2011 - Dames Ferry, Jackson Ga

Well a weekend is here and we decided to spend the weekend at a Georgia Power operated park. This turned out to be a nice park and quiet with some privacy between our space and others. Some of the turns were somewhat tight, but still, it was nice. The wife and I spent the weekend just relaxing and reading. The first night we had a high wind coming off the lake and it rocked the 5th wheel a bit. We had a lake view out the living room window, so we just sat in our recliners and watched the world, (and storm), go by. The rest of the weekend...

Going Fulltime

Dec 27, 2010 - On To Macon, Georgia

Okay, we really didn’t forget all we knew about travel days. Today was much better than yesterday. Even with Gene first taking the car down to the corner gas station, then pulling the motorhome up for a propane fill-up, then taking the motorhome to the gas station, we were still on our way shortly after 9 AM. That worked out well because we missed the Birmingham rush hour and got to Atlanta before traffic got to bad there. That’s not to say traffic wasn’t heavy in Atlanta--it was. I think it always is. We made good time on the bypass, but...

Scratchin' the Itch

Jul 5, 2010 - Macon, Georgia

We had a great first day! I have been living with Karen and Tony the last few weeks. Mom came over last night. This morning, it was hectic packing the car up with my luggage and mom's luggage, and trying to figure out exactly how much I could fit (shove) into my trunk. We finally got on the road around 10:30 a.m. Today's drive was relatively short, but very pretty. We took a longer route to get to I-75 going through several small towns. We finally got on I-75 in Ocala. We arrived in Macon, Georgia around 5:00 p.m. It rained through much of...

Jul 1, 2010 - Macon GA

We arose early today and were on the road at 8:15 central time. We would have made it by 8 except Doug had to air the tires and that took a while. We had an uneventful trip and stayed on secondary roads most of the day. Sometimes it was slow and beautiful and at other times it was quick and rural. We enjoyed the ride. We have become accustomed to pulling over at a rest stop or even along the side of the road for breaks and then JoAnn will serve sandwiches that she prepared the night before and we munch away as we drive away. Fillmore also...

Living Our Dream

Jun 1, 2010 - Wildwood to Macon

June 1, 2010 We took off... Mary, Julie and Navigator, Margarita at 4:00 PM. The car was packed with water, soda and dog dish for water. We had healthy snacks such as veggies, fruit and string cheese along board so as not to have to stop at restaurants or "heaven to bid" fast food places along the way. We drove North until we reached Macon, GA, about 8 hours. Mary had done great research on on motels along the way that accepted doggies. The Red Roof Inn was the motel of choice. There was a pool at most of the Red Roof Inns and free...

Mar 6, 2010 - Ocmulgee National Monument

Keeping with our theme of visiting National Park service units while in middle Georgia, today we drove to Macon to visit the Ocmulgee National Monument. On our way, we stopped by my brother’s to drag him along for the outing. It is estimated that native peoples have lived on the Macon Plateau for more than 9,000 years. Eventually, the Woodland Indians began to establish villages in the area and plant their crops of squash, beans, and corn. The Ocmulgee site really focuses on the Mississippian people who planted extensively and established...

Scratchin' the Itch

Nov 23, 2009 - Thanksgiving, Perry Georgia

Thanksgiving Kind of a yucky overcast day for our ride to Perry, Georgia. It threatened a lot, but never did rain on us. We were on our way to meet the ‘in-law’s’ of our friend Sam. Remember the start of our little bike ride in Calgary??? The beautiful little boy, Shepherd; Sam his dad, married to Sharon, the beautiful southern belle who somehow managed to avoid the camera??? We were invited to (American) Thanksgiving dinner with them, and her family! We arrived in town on Monday, well in advance of the big day on Thursday. We got ourselves...

Aug 31, 2009 - Touring Rural Georgia

Today was a very long drive. Not too far south of Nashville we decided to take a side trip to the George A. Dickel Distillery. So off we went down some pretty narrow, curvy rural roads not exactly sure where we were going. Then of course, we missed our turn because it looked like someone’s driveway and we didn’t believe Gertie (she’s taken us on some wild goose chases before) so we had to circle around and of course there was road construction even in the boonies but eventually we stumbled upon it through the “back door”. And it was closed!...
