Rolling On To Magnolia Springs
By the time we had made it to North Carolina, we were getting close enough to Florida to feel more familiar with our surroundings. Gary knew we could make the 392 mile trek from the KOA we were at, all the way down to Magnolia Springs State Park in Millen, Georgia. After sleeping well, we hit the road by 7:30, and clicked off the miles in a hurry. We ran into a little rain in northern South Carolina, but it wasn't bad and didn't last long. We passed by the heavily advertised South Of The Border attraction, and the humongous Harbor Freight Tools warehouse, both located just below the North Carolina/South Carolina border. At the Santee, SC. exit, we took US-301 southwest, crossing into Georgia. We eventually made our way to Magnolia Springs State Park. We had never been there before, but had heard good things about it. It didn't disappoint. The plan was to spend two nights there. Gary knew of antique stores in the area that he wanted to go to, and I just wanted to rest up and be my lazy self. We picked out a pretty pull-thru campsite that was big enough for at least three van and trailer combos end to end. It was REALLY nice. In my next post, I'll show you around the place. Stay tuned!
