Annual South Carolina Spring Camping Trip

To kick off the year the Lowcountry will host another camping trip. Ride in on Friday night, ride route on Sat., ride out on Sunday morning/afternoon. This time we will invade two other states as well.

This makes the third annual spring camping trip for us. Jose, a former low country inmate got permission from the boss for us to camp on his 2+ acres with fire pit.

Location will be in Charlotte. May 17-19.

Saturday ride to Hampton Tennessee to Rick's Rendezvous. (Around 156 miles one way, we will be taking the more scenic route about 200 miles one way)

Objections or better ideas are welcomed as always.

I vote for Edisto, but the wife needs to check her work calendar to figure out which weekend is best. I'll vote in the poll next week.

I am afraid to vote. Pretty sure I can make any of them... just never know what work will throw at me. So.... I will vote after you all pick place and date. Then I'll vote for that one.

The title of this thread is misleading..."Camping Trip to Hunting Island" I tried to edit maybe I'll try again.

As a sign of good faith....

If Edisto is decided upon, I made a route, which is subject to change.

Ride Report from the Camping Trip

Well I got home with a couple unexplained bruises. I'm sure the rum had nothing to do with that. Wait.....I mean delicious juice we were drinking.


Let me start from the beginning..........

The weather forecast for the weekend got worse every time I looked at it. Going from 30% chance of T-storms to 60% chance with very strong winds and possible large hail.... so I stopped checking it.

After checking in and setting up camp a few of us ventured back into town for dinner at Outback we were really roughing it. More like giving the waitress a rough time. She started by dumping a glass of water on boybrushedplad. Next, she offered him a pair of dry pants she had in the back. Then, she proceeded to laugh saying she had none. Every time she returned she was sent for something else. Poor thing. To top it off caycek5 set a trap for the bus boy. Something like this but with forks and full glasses of water.Photobucket Photobucket

Apparently rmb has some tricks/traps he knows how to leave also. He told us of one not to be tried on a table with a table cloth. Ask him how he knows.

After dinner bikes were traded in the parking lot. I learned I didn't want a KLR. And BBP learned that if he had a SV650 he would be lane splitting, doing wheelies and all kinds of fun stuff.

We split ways with Draechon as he went to "meet up" with a girl....ahem... he knows. The rest of us returned to camp for some juice drinking down at camp 199 with Rocky and his pole crew. I mean whole crew. Some had more juice than others. I've never seen anyone drink as much juice as quickly as Gdawg did. Then he and caycek5's wives showed up. I can't tell you a whole lot after that.....

It rained at some point in the night but the sky was surprisingly clear in the morning.

GOOD MORNING SALUTE
Photobucket
Where were my keys all night? In my bike? I'm glad none of the raccoons rode off on it.

After a hearty breakfast of pancakes, fresh picked strawberries, meatless sausage, some hot coffee and a couple of Aleve we started gearing up. Photobucket

With the storm a brewing Rocky, Stacy, and Jimmy stayed to play on the beach. We hung out for rmarkr. He arrived, dropped some gear at rvrhwki's site and we headed out.

The first stop was Fort Freemont. Just a few miles down the road. We quickly learned that our route had a few more U-turns than we remembered planning but we got there.

It was a pretty cool spot, with wifi, so we could get a little of the history from the above link to share with everyone along with a few cool pics.Photobucket
