Arrived at Virginia Beach

Thursday night at the NOMADS Annual Meeting, the theme was the 50's and a few folks got dressed up.  It was really kind of fun to see.  We had a catered dinner so after that was done, I wandered around and took a few photos.
 It seemed as if everyone was enjoying themselves.  We managed a few goodbyes and went back to the Roadrunner.

We had an early departure on Friday (7:00 AM ish) and were packing up in the dark.  We waiting until the sun came up before we pulled out and hooked up the car.  The Blue Ox Patriot braking system is working great.  They sent a new one to replace the one got in May and no problems.

However--we were on the road for about an 40 minutes and the Pressure Pro Monitoring System indicated the passenger front tire was at 51 lbs!  Yikes - they should be around 34 or 35!  I pulled over on I-40 down the road from Marion.  I took off the sensors on the tires and put them back on and everything checked out normal.

We drove for about 8 hours and got to Virginia Beach before 4:00 PM.  It was bright and sunny and we made it over to Dam Neck Annex, Oceana Naval Air Station, Virginia Beach.  It has about 20 sites and they are pretty large.  It is costing us $17.50 a night at the Sea Mist RV Campground which is about 20 yards from the ocean front beach.
It is nice! The best thing is that is had been 78 - 80 degrees the last couple of days!

I had to get up early yesterday and watch the sun come up.  We are positioned perfectly at the campground to get the sun coming up over the water.
Hope you are having a good weekend and thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles!  Please check back for the next edition and leave a comment or become a Follower ~ we appreciate it!


  1. Nothing beats watching the sun come up at the

  2. Sure is nice to have warmer weather after those cool days in Marion, isn't it?

    We left Saturday and drove only 3 hours to the Escapees Park in TN. Could not believe how warm it was yesterday!

    Safe travels y'all.

  3. Sounds like a great RV park and you sure can't beat the benefit of being able to view a sunrise. Nice pics of that!

  4. I could sure go for some of those great sunrises and temperatures in the 70's. Looks like a great place.

    Strange about those tire pressures too. Glad it was just a sensor issue and not a tire problem.
