Well, not as nice a drive as Wednesday's through the changing clolr on secondary roads since much was on interstates, and the tail end in DC traffic on I 95 & the Loop, but I'm here. I even made it down the 18%, 2 mile grade with the trailer. I included a photo of the sign at the top of the hill.
Every time I drive in the DC area it reminds me how much I like the quiet roads in upstate NY (and much of the West as well). Five lanes of stop & go traffic and a 2 mile back up behind an accident (thankfully in the other direction) in the middle of the afternoon...
I'm in site D130, a roadside site that just fits the trailer & the RAV4. It gets some sun for the solar panels, and isn't too far from the bathroom (with showers, unusual for National Parks).
After setting up the trailer I drove to Karin's new house in Tacoma Park. 9.5 miles away, and about a 20 minute drive at 2:30. I played with the grandkids, talked and did a bunch of catching up. Since I wanted to get back before dark, I left at 6:00. It took 50 minutes to get back to the campground! Since I didn't take a site photo before I left, I did it in the almost dark with an ISO of 2500. Almost looks like daylight unless you notice the light in the trailer window.
|Grade Warning||Site D130, Greenbelt National Park, MD|
Since I had lots of cheese & crackers at Karin's, dinner was simple - a turkey sandwich & chips.
