Spring 2018 Trip: Day 35 - DRIVING DAY: Chippokes State Park, VA to Chesterfield, VA


So sad to be leaving one state park to go to ... another state park!
Starting milage: 76870.6 = Ending milage: 76930.7 = Total distance driven: 60.1 miles

So we hadn't seen anyone at the dump station the five days we spent at Chippokes Plantation State Park, so that means there won't be anyone there when we leave. Right?

Oh dear. Well, we only waited five minutes or so before we could dump the tanks and hit the road. Our 60 miles on the road were windy, winding ones taking around 90 minutes. The occasional small town slowed us down to 35-45 mph before we could ramp it up again, and a light sprinkle attacked the windshield. But without needing to stop for gas due to shorter distance, we were able to make it to our location by 11:30am and drive to Site #2.

Site #2. This might look like we haven't parked yet and it's more or less level. But if you were standing at the top where we had parked the RV, it would've looked like a ski jump. So we drove around looking for a better location that we could level on. After getting clearance to change to another spot, we went to the Cracker Barrel, Walmart, CVS, and then back to the park and our nice more secluded spot! The only thing, it's gonna be freezing again this evening. Back to electric blanket and space heater life at least for the next week.
