Going Slow

Thursday we did get a site at Mayberry Campground.  After we got settled in and conneted all the electric,water and sewer hookups,we were off to theHungry Farmer Restaurant. This resaurant is where the locals eat that we found out about last year when we visited Mt Airy.  It is located on route 52 north of Mt Airy.  They have a buffet that is real country cooking,including "hog jowls".
Yesterday we took our time again getting on the road as we were only going 35 more miles to the Stony Fork Campground that is in the Jefferson National Forest.
I've been up Interstate 77 more times than I've wanted to,so yesterday it was north on route 52. This route was the route before the interstate was built.
The road goes thru small towns with flea markets and yard sales that are set up all week and every week long. I enjoy going on these roads as they are the real America that you don't see going on the interstates.
Everyone does not get the opportunity or want to travel at a slow pace to enjoy the simple things in life.
Thanks for stopping in and have a great day.
