Power out, go camping

Our power went out on Friday at 8am due to the ice storm we had in NC, power line laying in my front yard. I just pulled my new 270BH home on Thursday. Luckily no damage to the camper from all the trees limbs and trees that are now covering my yard. Well at 5pm on Friday we are trying to figure out what to do and where to stay because we knew the power would be out for long while. Answer, go camping!!!! With nothing packed at all and I mean nothing pack in the new TT yet in 1 hour we are pulling out and heading to
a campground that had power and had a blast during our first weekend of camping. It doesn't get any more spontaneous than that my friends!

It's great you had your Rv on hand to help you out. We thought that would be our back up plan if power went out, but in winter here, there are no campgrounds open. Glad you enjoyed your first weekend of camping.

Yeah thAt was our backup plan. Only issue is the storage lot has an electric gate. I think we were the only neighbor in mebane to not lose power. My co-workers just got it back last night. Glad you had fun. What campground had power? We cancelled our trip because I was too chicken. I was afraid of getting down a road and finding it blocked by a downed tree or worse one of the tall pines st the campground landing on our tt.

We went to Dan Nicholas park in Salisbury, we called before went to make sure they had power. We knew south of Lexington did not get it as bad as we did! I had to stop to get a tree out of one lane on our road as we led left so it would not scratch the new TT. It was an experience!
