Getting Closer to Home

Another early morning (8am) start and another day of travel in hilly country. We went from Central time to Eastern time yesterday and for some reason both Tom and I felt worn out today. We were glad to pull in into a campground in Harrisonburg, Virginia a little before 4pm this afternoon. We are in Harrisonburg KOA and what a rip off. This is the most expensive campground we have been in our entire trip and it is far from being one of the best. For just about $47.00 we are in a site in a wooded area with roads and sites covered with stone, we have full hook-ups with 50 amp electric, no cable and the TV reception with the antenna is marginal. Believe me, there is nothing here that makes us say "wow this is a great campground". More and more I can understand why many people are staying away from the east when traveling by RVs. Our campground book quotes the price of this campground at $28-$32, now the book is a four years old and we expected a little higher rate but not almost $15.00 of increase. Tomorrow we should be home in a few hours so it should be a short day of traveling.
