Nov 4, 2018 - The Oaks at Point South

The drive directly north on Interstate 95 was only 150 miles and the coming rain waited until we were totally setup. We were eager to setup and take our walk around the park. But, what we had trouble with, was waiting for time to pass, so we could take the 1/2 mile walk through the woods, around the lakes to the nearby KOA park. It has a Hunt Bro's Pizza kitchen, wine tasting and a great beer refrigerator! We really like having dinner there, and so like Pavlov's dogs we drool and slobber just at the suggestion of going. While here we...

May 29, 2018 - Yemassee, SC (Thousand Trail - The Oaks at Point South)

Park for four days to secure a spot for Memorial Day holiday and ride out tropical storm Alberto. It turned out okay. The campground invested in a substantial amount of new gravel on both the roads as well as the sites. After a few inches of rain we had some standing water but no problems. Thanks Thousand Trails!

Apr 15, 2018 - Yemassee KOA

Today was the beginning of another northern trek. We relaxed and went around the park saying our “goodbyes”to our friends. We left the park at about 11 and headed north on I-95. The weather at home is reported to be awful, so we think a casual drive north is our best bet. Tonight we are at the Yemassee KOA, which is at mile 33 into South Carolina. We arrived just before 4 PM, and only minutes before the storm hit. It has been raining, with lightning and thunder for the past two hours. We have a tornado warning, so we are happy to be...

Nov 11, 2017 - Yemassee, SC

A pleasant noneventful drive finds us in Yemassee, SC at the Thousand Trails park, The Oaks at Point South. This is a more rustic park than most and appropriately named since it’s built in an oak tree forest. In the past we were usually surprised that we can get satellite TV, but not the case this visit so we’ll need to live with the supplied cable TV. We’ll be roughing it for nine days. The population of Yemassee was 1,027 at the 2010 census and remains at about that level. Yemassee hosts one of the few commercial breeding facilities of...

Nov 6, 2016 - Visiting with Raymond & Marilyn in Beaufort, South Carolina

We spent the day with Raymond and Marilyn. Beaufort is on the coast. The land here is flat with lots of salt marshes and islands. We crossed Lady’s Island and St. Helena Island to Harbor Island, where we had lunch at Johnson Creek Tavern which serves local seafood. The only drawback for us was that everything is fried. Tom got scallops and I had a combo basket of scallops and oysters. Marilyn introduced me to fried pickles. I’ve seen them frequently on menus, but never tried them before. All the food was good. We sat outside on a covered...

Nov 5, 2016 - Point South KOA in Yemassee, South Carolina

We made it to South Carolina today. We are staying at the Point South KOA in Yemassee for a week while we visit Tom’s brother Ray and his wife Marilyn, who live in Beaufort. We probably have the nicest campsite in this park. It is at the end of one of the roads with woods on one side. The campsites in this park are wider than the average KOA and there are lots of trees. Once we got set up, we headed over to Ray and Marilyn’s house, about half an hour from the campground. There is one campground that may be closer but there were no sites...

More rain today as it rained off and on all the way down US 17 through Charleston.

We'll be arriving at Jekyll Island tomorrow afternoon. Our HOP starts on Sunday. Stay tuned.

May 19, 2016 - Yemassee, SC

Thu, 19 May: Heading north... We left the WalkABout RV park at 0820 and Bob drove a mile to the Flash Foods just east of the interstate. Flash Foods diesel was $2.239/gallon, AND they have nice wide truck lanes with loads of room. On the west side was a BP station selling diesel for 56¢/gallon more! Why would anyone buy it there??? After adding 58 gallons of diesel to our tank Bob pulled onto I 95 north and 139 miles later exited in Yemassee South Carolina. The drive north was uneventful altho the traffic did increase as we neared...

May 17, 2016 - TT Oaks at Point South

We drove the 139 miles from Pointes West and Augusta to Yemassee, South Carolina and the Oaks at Point South campground. The area is near iconic oldtown Beaufort, SC on the coast AND it's located midway between Charleston and Savanna. We like the area for it's mild weather and interesting history. Right next door to our campground is the Frampton Plantation which played a part in housing both north and southern troops during the civil war. One day, us and the VanEmmeriks went to Beaufort for alittle touring. We walked around town some,...
