We left Peterborough on Wednesday night after Carol finished work.  We thought that perhaps we’d get a few hours behind us and stop for the night in Fort Erie.  However, the weather had other ideas.  When we arrived at the border, we checked the weather reports for the route down to Hilton Head.  It looked as though we’d get stuck in the big snow storm that was coming.  We decided to try to beat the weather and headed south toward Hilton Head.  At the North Carolina border, after having driven the Miata through a lot of snow and slush, a gentleman at the NC visitor centre checked to see how far we’d have to drive to get out of the weather – it was Columbia, South Carolina.  That’s where we spent last night, after 19 hours of driving.  This morning, we drove the rest of the way to Hilton Head where we have been able to get our condo for an extra two nights to deal with getting here early.

Now, we don’t care what the weather is for the next six days.  We’re comfortable!

Our first real adventure took place on Sunday when we went through the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee and North Carolina.  Along the southwestern edge of Great Smoky […]
