Go South 100 Some Odd Miles And Take A Right

Just outside of Florence, South Carolina we reached the interchange between I-95 and I-20. I-20 West was the next leg of our route, and, I believe, the longest stretch. I-20 will carry us across most of South Carolina, and all the way across Georgia to Atlanta before we turn left and head south through eastern Alabama towards Florida.

We are planning to stop near Augusta, Georgia for lunch and then we'll switch drivers. At each rest stop I've offered to take over the driving duties but K said she'd rather keep driving for now.

One of the things we are doing to make the trip more interesting is to count the RVs we see. We're keeping track of them by category. So far Class A type motorhomes are in the lead with 18. Popups have yet to be seen this trip. In all, we've seen 44 RVs to this point.

Sounds like a VERY long trip. Roads in the UK (apart from Motorways, which the same as your freeways) are not really made for very long distance driving, but then the whole of Britain is only about 800 miles long from top to bottom!

Oh I would love to be traveling right now. I hope you have a great time in Florida.

The child in you surely has woken up - counting RVs shows that emoticon :smile:

Just out of curiosity, what kind of Internet access do you have while driving? Is it an extension of your home plan or did you have to pay extra? I remember staying in a motel near Florence on my way down to Disney World in 1988.

We saw a total of 112 RVs on the road between home and here.

We only saw 3 popups on the road during the trip here.

The worst thing about I-20 was how dull and straight of a drive it was.

We drove 800 miles yesterday getting from home to here. emoticon :smile:

I have WiFi through my cell phone service. It is an extra charge added onto the bill each month but I can get WiFi anywhere I have cell service, even on the road in the car.

Dull is good when it comes to driving, that's for sure. When things get exciting on the highway it usually means bad news.

It started with my mother and aunt. They would count out-of-state license plates when they traveled. After they told my wife about their little game, she's made it part of our travels. This trip she added the counting of RVs.

I remember counting cars when I had visited my sister. Our native place did not have that much traffic but here at every second we could see them pass. emoticon :smile:
