Jan 9, 2019 - Yemassee, South Carolina

Today we finally found our way off the mountain. Fancy Gap was a friendly little place, but never a place you would stay for five days. We made many trips to neighbouring towns in attempts to chase down parts. Finally we had to remove the rotor and caliper bodies from the wheel we were having trouble with. When we moved the trailer off the road, we must have damaged the caliper bracket and we couldn’t center the calipers and keep the caliper body from rubbing the inner ring of the rotor. In the end we removed the entire brake from that...

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...

Sep 23, 2016 - Into the Low Country

More rain today as it rained off and on all the way down US 17 through Charleston. It looked like it might finally clear up as we approached the Point South KOA in Yemassee, SC, but after we got set up the rain came back. This is an overnight stop. We'll be arriving at Jekyll Island tomorrow afternoon. Our HOP starts on Sunday. Stay tuned.

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,...

Oct 27, 2015 - On the Road Again

The Oaks at Point South (TT) Yemassee, SC We left Sandbridge Saturday on a beautiful morning. It's always hard to leave but we have begun another journey. I'm still recuperating from a hip replacement in August but it's nice to be rolling again. We drove straight through to The Oaks which took us 7-1/2 hours. Ray, who does the barbecue here on Fri. nights called me last week to ask how we were since we hadn't been down. When I told him we were coming he said he would bring dinner to us. Melissa and Seth joined us for a delicious barbecue...

Dec 1, 2014 - Yemassee, SC

We arrived at The Oaks at Point South Thousand Trails Preserve in Yemassee, SC on November 18th. This will be the fourth time at this park during the Thanksgiving holiday. Last year we were disappointed that they did not have the usual Thanksgiving dinner but it has been reestablished for this year. The park supplies the turkey and ham and the attendees provide a dish to pass. This kind of event serves as a meet and greet as well as a celebratory dinner. Our visit was literally dampened by the weather. We had four consecutive days of rain...

Oct 11, 2014 - Back in Yemassee

We have done some stupid things in our motorhome but there are two really stupid things we have done. The first was when we flew to Oregon to buy the Motorhome. We flew out with the dogs, took possession of the motorhome and drove back across country never having driven a motorhome before. Luckily we didn't have any incidents for two people not knowing what they were doing but looking back it wasn't the smartest move to make. Now for the second. We left Pocatello, ID on 10/7 and arrived in Yemassee, SC on 10/11 at 10 pm. We drove about...
