May 1, 2017 - Edisto Island

May 1, 2017 Well it is stinkin’ hot and there are bitin’ bugs. I’ve never known what to put on first: the deet or the sunscreen. More importantly it is still hard for me to reconcile putting on Cutters after a shower. I am allergic to the bites so I also have to take Benadryl to reduce the swelling. Slept with the air on too. Are we having fun? YES! This morning we had a little rain but not the thunder showers we were anticipating. I started making camp reservations and was fortunate to get the last spots in 2 out of the 3 we had intended....

Apr 30, 2017 - Columbia to Edisto Island, SC

April 30, 2017 We were planning a leisurely day spending a second night in Columbia. Space is at a premium and decided that because it has become so warm and humid Bob would welcome putting his heavier clothes in our long term storage area. This leads to our “every so often” cleaning (which means airing out the sleeping bag, washing out the fridge, washing the floor) , replenishing supplies from storage, rearranging Bob’s storage etc. That coupled with doing laundry we were feeling pretty clean! Walked next door to the 100 stall flea...

Jul 20, 2008 - Edisto Beach State Park, SC

We spent three nights on Edisto Island. This state park is tucked between Savannah and Charleston, only has a few campsites, and a quiet, pretty beach. Lucky us, it also had a heat alert throughout our stay. The heat index rose to 103 or higher. We only had 30 amp power, which means we could only run 1 ac at a time. We quickly learned that at those temperatures we needed both units in the heat of the day, but were able to keep it cooled down enough by adjusting vents, etc. on one. We stil had some pretty walks on the beach in the mornings...

Apr 30, 2008 - Edisto Island

Edisto Beach State Park - Tuesday, April, 29 Today we’re headed for South Carolina where we hope to get a campsite for the night at a place on the coast called Edisto Beach State Park. We decided to take the fastest way out of Savannah which was I-95. We had to drive across the outskirts of Savannah to get to it, but once we found it, it was a short drive to the Savannah River and the South Carolina border. They call this country we’re entering ‘Low Country’ and it’s easy to see why. Not so long ago this was ocean bottom, and it may soon be...
