Off we went on a short drive to get from Cross Hill, SC to the KOA campground in Gaffney/Spartanburg. It was only a two hour drive if that, piece of cake. Now, getting level, THAT was another story.
|another rig never did get level|
|typical site doesn't look too bad from afar, but close up, watch out!|
|what we had to do, kind of cobbled together, but it worked|
Pool is small but nice...clean laundry and showers, very nice inside. There's a nice little campstore in the office welcome station. Nice pet playground for furry kids...Some sites have picnic tables, some do not. There are some sites with campfire grills and some without.
Park has free wi-fi but it's very slow, and if the provider thinks you are using too much bandwidth, they put bandwidth download limits on your wifi. We ran into this almost immediately, but all we were doing was the usual email and web surfing. Maybe a lot of people were already on the park's network, but it was very early in the morning. Our mi-fi works great, full bars. AT & T service, four bars and no problems dropping calls or reception on other end.
It's supposed to rain seriously for the next three days, which is good, because we will be in CLASS for TWO of those three days from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. That way, Sparky won't be tempted to play hooky, which she won't anyway, because she paid for her class. (That was the plan, to have some investment in it so she wouldn't beg out of going! explains E.) Smart man, he's right as usual! The Freightliner School is two exits down from the Spartanburg/Gaffney KOA and you get a 10% discount for staying here at the KOA if you are going to the classes. Cost for us around 37.00 a night plus a little change. Freightliner comes and picks you up each day and brings you back home. No ducking out of class for Sparky!
See you after classes......We'll see what Sparky learns about the chassis! And Eldo, too!
