While Covid has kept us in lockdown it has also taken us some time to make some necessary repairs. Because we had also had to make some repairs to our truck we decided to make our first trip out fairly close by to make sure we felt comfortable with the repairs that had been made.
Venturing out only a little over thirty miles from home it was still far enough from home to satisfy our need to “get away”. Here are a few pics from our trip so far:
Kampers Lodge may not be fancy enough to suit some people but has given us everything we need. It is quite, the camp host are absolutely great and of course the price is right!
Keep watching for more of our camping adventures. Don’t let Covid or any of the issues of this country keep you from having the time of your life. Live life to the fullest. Have a great day.
After the recent flooding at Hiddenite Campground that claimed five lives, I was moved. As an avid camper myself I love to camp out beside the river and mountain streams. It is always very peaceful. Campers were not advised of the potential flooding and a peaceful situation quickly turned tragic.
In my hometown we currently have flooding and it will give you some idea of what it might have looked like at Hiddenite.
Don’t take anything for granted when you are around rising water. The campground at Hiddenite should have closed prior to the flooding but it didn’t. The lost lives included a one year old child.
Our journey this week began in this little cabin at Mountainside Cabins. We normally travel in an RV but when our refrigerator died, we decided to rent this little cabin instead of waiting to repair our fridge.
This one-lane road, which proved to be one of many, lead us up a mile to our cabin. Along the way were these colorful trees along with christmas trees on the side.
Hope you enjoyed these few pictures of our mountain journey.
