Where are we today ?
Today's journey only117 miles (188 kms) today
        If you checkeed out yesterdays posting you would have seen an awesome Walmart Sunset, and now this morning we had and another awesome Walmart sunrise!. Almost wants us to stay at this Walmart here in Wytheville, but maybe not, many more places to see and explore.
Walmart Sunrise!
Walmart bringing in a trailer load of pumpkins! 8 am.
a few of us here ready to hit the road
        First stop today was a Flying J, grab a bit of fuel and scrub the bugs off the windshield. Oh yeah and off course the usual "P" break after all the morning coffees and tea.
me cleaning the bugs
        Now a leisurely drive heading to Salisbury NC for an nice 5 night stay. But we have a 7 mile decline heading out of the Blue Ridge mountains. Many Runaway truck lanes here just in case your brakes fail. This is a good thing for sure.
that be us
then we cross into North Carolina, be here 5 nights
         So stopped by the visitor center , asked for info on nice places to see and we are filled with loads on info.
nice visitor center
a few scenic backroads to the resort
        We arrived at Bass Lake Rv resort and the owner was there to greet us. A very friendly fellow and so much fun checking in. Their season is pretty well done but we have a couple sites all to ourselves, full hookups and 50 amp service, part of our membership parks, love free camping including free hi speed wifi to!
nice cabins to rent

        We were set up before noon, and puttered around for a while, fixed a few issues with Rob and Pat's battery problems then, time for Happy hour.
A toast from Rob for fixing the Battery problem

        Our Weber is doing its job, baking potatoes amd grilling our pork roast for tonights supper.
         All done with some frozen peas and apple sauce we have an amazing home cooked meal!
        A nice short travel day and we will kinda relax here for 5 nights, just waiting to head to the RV Rally at Daytona Speedway on Oct 31st. Gonna be too much fun.
        Thanks again for stopping by and enjoying our journey with us. Hope y'all had a great day too!

  1. Looks like you had a wonderful day! I love the picture of Lady Girl relaxing in the chair!!

  2. Sorry I missed you in the Carolina's, it was sure beautiful while I was there.

  3. We've overnighted many times at the Wytheville Walmart on our way between NJ and Louisiana. I have 2 nephews who live in Wytheville and one of their wives work at the Walmart.

    That stretch on highway between VA and NC is hairy. Done that many times also in our travels.

    Looks like you found a good place to settle for a few days.

    1. Works good for us, relax and enjoy the area for a while.

  4. That's one beautiful roast...and I just have to have applesauce with pork! Only thing missing was the sauerkraut :O)

    1. The roast was awesome, and I did not feel like sauerkraut last night, or it would have been there too!

  5. That area of the country is truly beautiful and I have to sheepishly admit I haven't seen nearly enough of it. Thanks for all the pictures.

    1. It sure is beautiful country side, we are enjoying our stay here.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
