Nov 4, 2014 - Edisto beach

Edisto Island is one of south Caroline's largest barrier islands. It is part of the ACE basin which is made up of the Edisto river, Ashepoo River and Combahee river. The state park has two campgrounds, one on the island with timber and marsh and our campground which is nestled between the Atlantic beach and the marsh. The town of Edisto beach is a long spit of land connected to the island by a causeway. Not surprisingly, there is an erosion issue on the beach. The island is developed but the lots are sizeable. There is significant...

Oct 29, 2014 - Brookgreen gardens and sharks teeth

Cousin Ted warned us that Myrtle Beach was heavily commercial, so we thought we were prepared, but nothing could have prepared us for the onslaught of beach gear palaces, pancake diners, miniature golf, amusement parks, and mile after mile of strip malls selling the same stuff. Along the beach, except for the mile of the state park, the beach was lined with hotels of every size and description. That said, we had a really delightful week with absolutely perfect weather, lots of interesting local discoveries and many hours of beach...

First real scam we have come across. They have two parts to the state park. The beach loop that is the best and the live oak loop, that is tight and heavely forrested, and the sites are mostly unlevel. Could be the worst site we have had............ All and all I have come to hate State Parks. Very few upgrade from when they were first built. South Carolina is the worst so far..............Interior roads are very bad. You could ruin a trailer with all the ruts. Traveled:120 miles Total Miles 4099. Truck miles are at 51620 Site 93

May 18, 2013 - Andersonville & Edisto Beach

We made it to Andersonville, Georgia. Wow all those graves. It's hard to believe how many died in the prison camp. 1,848 men from Pennsylvania died there. The prison camps in the north weren't much better. Now we have moved east to Edisto Beach State Park. It's located just north of Savanna, Georgia in southern South Carolina. We got up early in the morning to gather some sea shells. It was great. Now we have moved north to Myrtle Beach. Thanks to everyone that followed our journey. I hope you liked the pictures. And especially thanks to...

I was a little worried about this trip since the Holiday Trav-L-Park of Chattanooga turned out to be an RV city with RVs so close you could reach out and touch each other. I must admit however, the full hookups were nice with this trip consisting of myself, my son, his family and my mentee Hannah McLeroy staying in my RV. My sister, Yvonne, along with her husband and two grandchildren were parked right next door in their camper and not having much space between our sites the children didn't have much room to play. We will keep this in mind...

After looking back on this rv adventure all I can say is WOW! I really had a wonderful time at Edisto Beach State Park spending time with family. We attended the Sunrise Service at the Pavilion that was sponsored by The Church of Edisto, went motorcycle riding to downtown Charleston's Market Street for an outdoor lunch at Bubba Gump and spent lots of time relaxing on and around the beach. After renting several houses in Edisto for a number of years I have decided rving is the only way to see Edisto. The park was awesome! I will go back:)...

Mar 30, 2009 - South Carolina

Edward left for California today and I headed to South Carolina. GREAT campsite right on the beach. Tuesday was the day for visiting Charleston. Thanks to great tips from my own personal vacation planner...Michele...I saw all the best parts of the town. Walked around for about 4 hours looking at amazing homes, beautiful waterfront parks, the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Yorktown parked in the harbor, very diverse shopping areas and several museums.

Nice beach. Warm water. Cool campsite. Big tent. No tent poles. I knew we were forgetting something. You know, tent poles make a tent a lot more spacious than without tent poles. So we went to a hardware store, picked up some flimsy pseudo-PVC pipe and MacGyvered the shit out of that tent. Too bad none of us are MacGyver. The PVC turned out to work just for show, since we couldn't actually ground them down (not to mention that they couldn't really support their own weight). Just imagine using two pool noodles to erect a tent and badaBING:...
