We left West Virginia and headed to South Carolina to say a few nights so we could mark it off of the map. When we first started this adventure we said we had to stay in a state thirty days to mark it off the map, but have amended that requirement. If we stay the night and get out and see something in the state, then we can check it off.
We ended up staying at Cherokee RV Campground in Blacksburg, South Carolina which was a very nice RV park. There is no playground or anything other than open space for kids, but it was nice, quiet, and the lot we parked in was flat enough. We would surly stay there again if passing through.
While there we went to Kings Mountain State Park for a visit. This park sits next to Kings Mountain National Military Park which is a Revolutionary War site. Both parks offer hiking trails and plenty of history.
The Kings Mountain State Park also has the Piedmont farm which is a replica of an 1800 era farm.

God had a reason for us to stay put for so long, but now we are back on the move and following His lead.
God bless you all and may He keep you safe!
