Back in Virginia Beach

We spent two days driving from the Petersburg Army Corps of Engineer Park outside of Augusta to Virginia Beach.  We had an overnight stay at a good campground off I-95 RVacation RV Park in Selma, North Carolina.
The campground was a good place to stay with full hookups, drive through camp sites and easy access.
We don't always pay for a campsite for a one night stay.  Sometimes we opt for a no hook up spot at a Wal-Mart parking lot.  But since Kelly and Jon were with us, we decided we wanted to have full hook ups.  
It was fun to have them travel with us in the Roadrunner.  Kelly had done that a couple years ago with us on our maiden voyage from Virginia to California in 2009.  But this was Jonathan's first time, so it was fun to show him how we 'live the dream' day after day.
One travel guideline some people follow is - eating out on travel days.  No so with us.  Pam is a great cook and she usually fixes something.  Plus, with our residential refrigerator, we have more options.
After a couple of easy driving days, we parked at Little Creek Navy Campground in Norfolk, VA.
It is about four blocks from Kelly and Jon's home off of Independence Boulevard in Virginia Beach.  Very convenient.  Previous visits to the area we camped about 35 minutes away from where Kelly was - this is much better.

So we are in Virginia Beach for a few weeks.  Looking forward to some household projects and spending time with the kids and getting caught up with doctors appointments and such.

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!  Until next time...


  1. Oh, I am so jealous!! I miss Virginia Beach, I was a Marine Corp brat and went to high school in Chesapeake,VA. Saturday trips to VIrginia Beach, with civilian friends, were awesome. A lot of times my sister and I would go over to one of the beaches that were military (I can't remember which one right now).

    Enjoy your time back in the area! Looking forward to some beach pictures.

  2. You are taking some chances heading north! I have been watching the weather and it is still snowing in soooo many places. We may just skip Spring and go right on in to summer.

  3. I am itching to take the route you have. Georgia and the Carolinas are on my list. So many places yet to see. I enjoy your blog. Keep the rubber on the road.
