Tuesday, April 26, Lake Anna State , VA - 275.7 Miles, 7,397.9 Miles for the Trip

One of the longer legs of the trip, almost all of it on interstates. We are in sites 39 & 40 at Lake Anne State Park, water & electric sites on pea gravel that required a bit of leveling but I did manage to keep the truck hooked up. $53.44 per night.

Lots of stop & go on the interstates. We did hop off I 81 and drive through Wytheville on US 11 to get around a 5 mile back up, but the rest were just short stops for heavy traffic. We hit rain for the last quarter of the drive. Temperatures along the way were interesting, varying from 82°F to 53°F along the drive, back & forth with swings within a few miles. At one point we hit accumulated snow on the road. Not enough to be a problem, but a couple of inches on the sides & the center of the lanes.

It held off long enough to set up the trailer, then has been light rain off & on from around 3:30. I did take a quick photo of the sites. The first photo is of an interesting pet in the site behind mine at Hungry Mother - a Macaw. They also have 2 large dogs - a full house!

Interesting Pet Site 39 Site 40

I checked both AT&T & Verizon - AT&T showed 7.5Mbps down and 0Mbps up, while Verizon was 16Mbps down & 5Mbps up. By the way, I did check both at Camp Burson at Hungry Mother State Park yesterday, and AT&T showed no data connection (one bar on the phone) and Verizon 24Mbps down & 5.5Mbps up.

We didn't do much after setting up since it was raining and while our sites are next to each other, going between them is a bit of a walk in the rain. Because of the distance & weather, we decided to eat in our own trailers.

Dinner was a microwaved evol Portabella & Goat Cheese Ravioli Bowl.

Until Tomorrow -
