We got away around 1:00 pm Friday with our first stop a Roses store.  We ate a sandwich and chips before going into the store I was wanting to see if they had a grill mat like the one I bought in Myrtle Beach. After using the mat I knew I would need a couple more because it make grill easy and no mess with the aluminum foil. They didn't have any so the hunt is on now until I find some.
I got on a divided highway and saw the truck that had got out of control and ended up in the medium.
It looked like it just happened minutes before we had gotten there. While we are in the travel mode we see this type of accident each day.
We traveled until reaching Biscoe where we spent the night at a Walmart.
After getting up yesterday and having breakfast and a couple cups of coffee it was time to get ready to move again.
Traveling the two lane roads we passed corn fields after corn field. Nancy said she didn't know they had so much corn.  We remember these fields as tobacco field and now it looks like corn is the money maker with the use of ethanol in the gas.
New corn silo's replacing the old ones.
I drove until we got to Mt Airy and the Mayberry Campground.
After checking in and getting the motorhome hooked up we went to the Hungry Farmer Restaurant to have supper. It is a few mile in the Virginia line.  We eat here every time we are in the area because we like the real country buffet that the have.  Everyone the comes in to eat are very friendly and it is not hard to strike up a conversation.
Today we will move on north and try to get in the Stony Fork  Campground at the foot of Big Walker Mountain which is in the Jefferson National Forest.
