​Just a quick update...

After we arrived at the Joint Base Charleston RV Park, SC, we visited downtown Charleston for a quick visit. We just walked around a historic area of Georgian row houses, avoiding people. Many of the row houses from the mid-1600's have been renovated. It was an interesting walk. But it was the next day that news on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the USA quickly got more serious. A couple days after our arrival, the campground closed to accepting new campers. Luckily, current campers are being allowed to stay. We decided to follow the guidelines on no unnecessary travel and are staying put. Currently, we can stay  here until May17th, but that can change (as all plans can). We're safe and secure on an USAF base, have full hook-ups, and the base commissary is open. We're staying home and catching up on computer work and a other chores to keep us occupied.

We're going to play it by ear for the upcoming months. We'll probably end up cancelling many of our campground reservations. I'm pretty sure going into Canada to visit the northeast provinces is now out. If the COVID-19 situation gets better within the next few months, we may still try to get to Washington DC, New York, and other states in the northeast. But for now, there's no traveling for us in the near future.

Well, at least your in a comfortable place. Lake Moultrie is close by, go do some fishing. Whatever you do, wash your hands!

Did they resolve the water issue in the rear sites yet??? Love Charleston and the JFBC...
but those sites in the back of the blacktop; when it rains you need a dinghy no drainage in that part of low country.

Don't know. There's been rain, but not real heavy and haven't noticed any flooding.

Hmm, I'm not sure. We've had some good rain and nothing has been too flooded. I think we're in the area you're referring to.

Wrong direction. Kings Bay, GA is SOUTH of Charleston.

We've stayed there years ago. It is a nice RV Park.

Larry & Connie, there are soooooo many things to do around Charleston. It is a shame you are there now during this time in our country. If you ever get the chance in the future, go out to St. John's Island to the Angel Oak. Unbelievable! Also The Charleston Tea Plantation. Interesting! Y'all stay healthy!!!

Thanks Roxanne!

The reason we're here in Charleston now is because we weren't able to explore last time we were here in 2013. Perhaps we'll be able to stay and explore when things start opening back up. I would love to go to the Tea Plantation. Stay well!

Thanks Dave!

You might want to give Onslow Beach a call before you go, to confirm your reservation. We plan on wintering in Mesa this year. Stay well!
