Heading to Delaware – 2nd night on the road

We spent last night at Dixie Caverns RV park just south of Roanoke, VA. We picked this RV park for the location – just off the interstate and about where we wanted to stop to break the trip up liked we wanted. It wasn’t much of a place, and I probably wouldn’t stay there again, but it was fine for a quick overnight.

Traveling with the Airstream makes this kind of stop much more tolerable. Being self-contained and having our own bathroom, etc means that we do not have to use the rather “nasty” bathrooms at these sorts of parks. And the tight quarters, with RV’s on either side, becomes less of an issue when you can just go inside your own camper and shut the door.

We had a “pull-through” site with full hook-ups and plenty enough room that we didn’t even have to un-hitch from the truck. (The Airstream connects to the truck fairly level, so we are able to just stay hitched up for the night.) We slept comfortably and warm, despite the rather frosty temperatures, and even had a hot shower this morning.

Today is a beautiful day to be cruising over the Blue Ridge Mountains – and we will be in Newark, Delaware this afternoon………
