RVing North on I95

We are on the move RVing North on I95 on our way to The Escapees RV Club Escapade rally in Essex Junction, Vermont. Last week we were in southern Georgia when we did the show. This week we are in Aberdeen, Maryland, and we’ll be in Vermont on Saturday.

Living The RV Dream Banner

So far, we have only been RVing North on I95. We did all of Georgia, South and North Carolina, Virginia, and now most of Maryland. The best roads and coincidently the lowest gas pieces were in South Carolina. It was quite noticeable. It seems that in every state, the bridges are the very worst for bumpy ride and solid drops and rises when going on and off the bridges. The worst of all roads was I495 around Washington, DC.

Bass Lake Campground

We’ve stayed at some nice campgrounds along the way. The first night out of Georgia, we stopped at Bass Lake campground in Dillon, South Carolina. This was a nice Passport America affiliate and we got the PA rate of $18.00. Here is their website

Americamps RV Resort

The next night found us just north of Richmond, Virginia at the Americamps RV Resort in Ashland. We were there visiting with our good friends Bill and Kris Osborne. What fun getting together with old friends while on the road. It was a nice park with many amenities. The web address is .

Aberdeen Proving Ground FamCamp

We have spent most of the last week at the Marylander Family Campground on base at the Aberdeen Proving Ground. This is a very nice small 11 site campground. There is another on base called the Shore campground with more spaces, but this one suits us just fine. We will be returning for a week on our way back from the Escapade. If you are a retired veteran, active duty military, or DOD civilian, you are eligible to use the military FamCamp system with campgrounds all across the country. Go to the US Military Campgrounds and RV Parks website at for much more information on this wonderful benefit we have for having served.
