Feb 24, 2015 - At the Barnyard

We decided to move further north today after seeing that the rain-sleet-snow line was a little further north than was predicted last night. We're at the Barnyard RV Park in Lexington, SC, just outside of Colombia. We've stayed here 3 or 4 times before because it is fairly convenient for a stopover when heading north or south, it has large pull throughs, and is relatively cheap. It's right next to the Barnyard Flea Market. We haven't been to the flea market yet. Our route took us through Augusta and I had to at least stop by Augusta National...

Sep 26, 2014 - Another Day, Another Lexington

9/26/2014. Friday. Another Day, Another Lexington! 8am and we are on the road heading for South Carolina. But first, I had to make a quick stop at the dump station on the way out of the KOA. I thought I had secured the sewer hose tightly to the RV bib but surprise of all surprises I had to do a brief rendition of the Barker Brown Water Dance as I saw deadly seepage bursting forth in the sewer bay. Yikes! That'll jerk your ass wide awake at 8am. We routed our way south on I81 connecting to I77 and over the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains...

Feb 7, 2014 - Overnight in the Barnyard

We got off to a late start this morning, but it was worth the extra time at Beaver Run. The owner came over and knocked on our door this morning to drop off a couple of freshly baked chocolate cookies. They were still hot when she handed them to me. She said that because we couldn’t make it to the dinner they had last night she thought we might like the dessert. This was one of the most welcoming places we’ve stayed since we started traveling in Winnie. I will make sure to stop at Beaver Run RV park when we are in this part of Georgia...

Jul 17, 2013 - Lexington, SC

18Jul 13 - We are spending the next week at the Barnyard RV Park in Lexington, SC. It is adjacent to the Barnyard Flea Market so that will be on our schedule for the weekend! We stayed here during one of our evacuations from the beach due to a hurricane. We arrived late this afternoon to an extremely hot humid afternoon which made setup difficult. The travel day was challenging to say the least. It seems I20 in Georgia and South Carolina really is some rough road in need of repair. We came up on an overpass where a large piece of metal had...

Dec 21, 2012 - Mom's 87th Birthday Today

Hi everybody! Well, we spent the night at the "BARNYARD" RV Park in Lexington, SC. Very nice park with spacious lots and reasonable prices, only $25. It started raining as soon as we arrived and we had heavy showers until about 11pm. We woke up to high winds and cold temperatures! BRRRR.... Now we are on Interstate 20 almost to Augusta, GA and Clinton is wrestling with the steering wheel in these winds and gusts! We keep thinking about the RV that was turned over by the wind on its way to Harlingen a few years ago. It caught on fire and a...

May 12, 2012 - Headed to South Carolina

#31 5/12/12 We left Georgia today and headed into South Carolina. We headed to Congaree National Park. It was an interesting trip through some nice countryside, off of the interstate! We go to the park and checked out the visitors center. You can't drive in the park except to the center. Everything is strickly hiking in, consequently, we didn't get to see much. I took a few pictures, mainly to show how big the trees can get. This place is unique because the trees are growing in a swampland. 194 miles today Sorry I couldn't post on time, had...

Dec 2, 2010 - OTRA - SC - Lexington

12/2/10 Today was predicted to be the first 4-hour drive day that we’ve had for some time so we tried to get off earlier than usual and we did….by 10 minutes! Left the campground on a sunny, non-windy day at 10:20 a.m. West on SR 301 to I-95, south on I-95 to I-20 to I-26 to Route 1 to the campground. Another easy (but somewhat boring) day of driving. The interstates are great for getting you somewhere in a hurry and they do go through some pretty country but they can be so boring….except when you’re within 100 miles of South Carolina, you...

Nov 18, 2010 - Lexington, SC (suburb of Columbia, SC)

11/17 to 11/18/2010 We drove to Lexington, SC (suburb of Columbia, SC) Wednesday to spend a couple nights. This is just a rest stop; we are heading to Hardeeville, SC Friday, just a few miles north of Savannah, GA. We plan to be there through Thanksgiving weekend, and maybe longer to see the sites. Temperatures are supposed to be in the 70’s for the next week. Do you suppose we could get Paula Deen to come up there from Savannah to cook us Thanksgiving dinner? LOL No Photos here.

Aug 16, 2010 - Leaving No. Carolina

We got up early hooked up the 5th-wheel, jumped in & started the truck. Pretty normal so far....BUT.....Pete found that the controller for the trailer brakes was not working, now thats a big probelm. So, off to Indian Trail for repairs at Rowells (they are the facility that had just replaced the brain for the exhaust brake less than a week earlier. So the repair turned into an all day affair, we left Rowells at 3:00pm & headed up the highway. Our destination was the Barnyard RV Park in Lexington, So. Carolina.

May 28, 2010 - May 28, 2010 - Hitting the road

Ready to turn off the computer and get on the road. Head for Columbia, South Carolina John an Leslie met us at the RV to send us off with a nice fare well, miss you already. It is always fun to have someone come and say goodbye. Earl headed for Handy Hugo to load up on Diesel fuel at 2.99 (very cheap after leaving in 2008 paying 5.00/gallon). I met him there to hook up the jeep, and after figuring out the which fuse to remove so the jeep battery would not go dead, we were ready to pull out at 11AM. Headed for Barnyard RV Park in Columbia,...
