July 1, 2021 Palmetto to Brunswick, GA

After many days of planning, packing, and preparing the house and yard for our departure and hurricane season, we set off at 9 AM on our RV trip. The drive today was 297 miles with the first stop of our trip being Brunswick, GA. We have stayed at the Coastal Georgia RV Resort on our other travels north before and enjoy stopping there for an “easy in-easy out” stop. They have wonderful sites and a great pool for a quick dip after the drive. We made good time on I-75 for a good part of the ride. There were lots of RVs and semis on the move. We came upon a traffic slowdown that lost us 20-30 minutes due to a semi vs 2 car accident just south of Ocala. At Ocala, we took Highway 301 north to Jacksonville. The skies were mostly sunny, but the radar showed the afternoon showers forming and moving east as we moved north. They finally caught up with us around Jacksonville when we jumped on I-95 to the Georgia border and north to Brunswick.

We had light sprinkles for a short time, but it ended and the skies lightened up as we arrived at our final destination for today–Coastal Georgia RV Resort at 3:00.

We were able to keep the Jeep connected so it was a fast and easy setup in site #303.

Auggie got some outside time while we hooked up the water and electric. After a walk with Auggie to stretch his legs, we relaxed a little before dinner. The rain clouds held off while we took our evening walk with Auggie to check out the new RV section that was added to the resort. Our drive today was pleasant, but uneventful, which is good. Our stop tomorrow is in Ridgeway, South Carolina.

  1. Hope you get to see the restored downtown district in Brunswick before departure. Also the tipped over auto transport carrier Golden Ray salvage operation. 4,000 Kia and Hyundai cars were onboard.

      We were only there for an overnight and didn’t do any sightseeing, but we saw something similar to that salvage when we were there by boat years ago.
