Harry and Judy's RV Trip

Day 55-August 29, 2014-To Concord, NC and the Grandchildren

Day 55-August 29, 2014-To Concord, NC and the grandchildren

Drove 187 miles in 4-3/4 hours.

Hot, humid, 88

Listened to the book on tape we’ve been involved with for the past few days.  It’s an unabridged version, 13 hours long and it’s really starting to drag.

Hit Charlotte, NC traffic on I-85 about 3PM on Friday afternoon before a holiday week-end.  Everybody’s in a rush to get somewhere.  Got to Charlotte Motor Speedway Campground and set up.  All the sites are on gravel but they’re big and level and they suit our purpose.  We’re here to visit with Harry’s daughter, Janice, her husband Tim and eleven of their twelve children, Schuyler, Gideon, Leo, Bronwyn, Kierstyn, Georgia, Grayson, Charlotte and Atticus.  And to meet Elijah and Oscar, the newest additions to the househeld.  Oldest son Evan is away at college in Tampa.  We’ll catch up with him when we get home.

Got over to their house about 5PM and visited for a while ‘til Tim got home from work, then we all piled into their van and went to Dino’s for pizza.  Harry and I like to go there whenever we come here, we really like their white pizza with spinach and bacon.  And they have great salads. 

Went back to the house and played Uno with a few of the kids for a while.  Harry and I both had forgotten how to play but it was like riding a bike, once we played a hand we remembered.  Of course, we didn’t win.
