Lee State Park

I have extolled the virtues of the South Carolina park system before but it had been a long time since I've had the pleasure of visiting one of their parks.   I am working in South Carolina this month, though. 
Last weekend I joined my younger daughter and family to celebrate her father-in-law's birthday at Chester SP.  I have camped there before.   This time we went to the picnic area at the lake and had a great time.
This weekend I am at Lee State Park.   Lee State Park campground has both regular and equestrian sites, level, with water and electric, for reasonable fees.   There is a dump station, of course, but no sewer hookups in the sites.   With a 2 week limit, who needs full hookups??
This park, like others in the system, appears clean and well maintained.  
The park was built by the CCC.

My plans for the weekend: music, hiking, and some house cleaning.   If anyone tells you a rolling stone gathers no moss - they lie!  So I must weed out some of the moss I've gathered before I inspire an RV episode of Hoarders.

Unless a daughter accepts my invitation to come out and play.. .

The Southeastern Rendezvous

This is the third rendezvous,  where I had no signal.   This area had quite a few more lodges earlier in the week but many had packed up and gone to another event.   Sometimes they overlap. 
Sorry - I was way too busy having fun to take pictures.   There were lots of seminars to attend, matches to compete in, food to cook and eat, old friends to catch up with, new friends to meet, shopping to do, and songs to sing.


Back to the 21st Century.

I'm back.   I have been places where cell phone use is inappropriate, and places where the internet was inaccessible.   The third rendezvous was 10 days long and not a data signal anywhere.   Then I came back to the modern world just in time for hurricane Sandy.   So now the mountain of snail mail has been recycled, the lesser of two evils has been voted for, the inbox has been cleared.   The gear that lives in the motorhome has mostly been returned to its normal place.   The propane tank,  which chose my departure day to run out, has been filled.   And I am at the mechanic shop awaiting yet another repair to the steering/brake system.   Yes,  on this vehicle they are connected.
And so modern life and blogging resume.
