Thanks to everyone out there for all of the GREAT advice on heading to Myrtle Beach! We got back last night around 12:50 a.m. after driving 17.5 hours - and had a GREAT time! Thanks for the advice on traveling through Virginia and West Virginia - and the braking tips for the mountains.
We can't say enough good things about the people at Oceanlakes - both employees and patrons. Everyone there was so friendly!! We loved the busy corner we were on, and thouroughly enjoyed all the customized golf carts. We'll be sure to go back!!
Also, thank you to Grand Strand RV who promptly arrived on our site to replace the circuit board for our refrigerator. It quit on gas on the way down, and luckily everything stayed cold until we arrived and plugged it into electric. Heath from Grand Strand was knowledgeable and friendly and went out of his way to be of service - even in showing us how to work our washer and dryer since we never had one in our coach before.
The only negative in the whole trip (weather was PERFECT!!) was the personalized directions from FMCA. We had our GPS and directions from Good Sam also, along with a nice Atlas - so all worked out okay - but in following the directions from FMCA, we were lead all through the "back country" on our way into Myrtle Beach?? Hmmm...... I'd be interested in hearing what route all of you take.
Thanks again! We had a great time! I hope all of you had a wonderful Holiday. Back to work tomorrow -
