Road Trip #9 Continues, Part 2 – Fall Colors in New England

From Kingsland, GA to Wytheville, VA was non-eventful, just driving a few hours each day and set up in the campground for the night.  We stayed in Walterboro, SC; Fort Mill, SC, on the NC line, and then to Wytheville, VA.  We stayed there for two nights to allow us a little sightseeing time.  The “smallest” thing that attracted us was this “Smallest Church in Wytheville”.

The church was built by the Outreach Ministry of one of the Baptist churches in Wytheville and in memory of one of the members who was extremely active in the ministry.  It is one of the smallest churches in the United States.

We left Wytheville, but not Virginia and drove north 187 miles to the Harrisonburg KOA, another scenic mountain campground.  This KOA is close to the Skyline Drive and we dedicated our second day here to take a ride on the drive and get some pictures.

Road Trip #9, Part 1 – Fall Colors in New England

Working our way north

My best friend growing up (a brother from a different mother) and I get together every September alternating years at each other’s home.  This year is our turn to visit Ken and Carol in Copake, NY.  This year’s trip has been on and off ever since we got back from Road Trip #8 in May.  Unfortunately I’ve experienced a lot of breathing issues.  Ultimately I apparently had developed “walking pneumonia”.  My breathing has continued to improve since that was cured, but I still need the help of O2 from time to time but that’s not going to slow us down.

During the past few weeks we have been planning this trip.

We got rolling the day after Labor Day and covered 270 miles that first day, ending up in Kingsland, GA at Country Oaks Campground & RV Park.  This is a really nice park as these picture testify..

Since then we have worked our way north to an intermediate destination for the first leg of this road trip.
