Tuesday, March 26, 2013 (Day 50)–Hanging Out

Spent the day shopping and doing laundry.  The most interesting store I found was called “Carolina Pottery”.  It was a smaller version of Garden Ridge.

I am heading west in the morning. 

The campground here has a lovely small lake with ducks.  They are very, very well fed ducks.  You should see them waddle.  The campground store sells bags of feed for 25 cents.

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.
