Monday, March 25, 2013 (Day 49)–Pulling off to wait out the weather

The wind blew me out of the campground about 9:00am this morning.  I knew that I had three tall bridges with crosswinds to cross to get out of The Outer Banks.  I chose not to dump my water tank and I took on some water in my holding tank to give me a little extra weight. 

Originally I had intended to go home on I-64 but the weather up there changed my mind.  Now I think I am going home on I-40 but the forecast for most of North Carolina and Tennessee along I-40 are calling for rain and/or snow showers tomorrow.  So I decided to pull off and wait for the weather to clear.

I drove about 240 miles to Selma, NC where I am staying a couple of nights at a campground right off I-95.  Three miles down the highway is a very nice outlet mall and about twenty different places to eat.  Tomorrow I will do some laundry and visit the outlet mall to fill my day.

I am watching “Dancing With The Stars” as I write this.  My antenna is pulling in a lot of channels here.  I was not able to watch it last week.

  1. Some of this looks familiar. A few years ago, our Disaster Relief team worked in Elizabeth City, NC. We spent one afternoon in the Outer Banks, playing tourists. Sounds like you’re getting anxious to get home,
