WELL, OF COURSE. WHAT DID YOU EXPECT? YOU SLEPT NEXT TO A FLEA MARKET.
US1 is and interesting combination of old and new. The old is the depression Era road: two 10ft concrete lanes with no shoulder; ba-bump, ba-bump, ba-bump, …. The 1960’s improvement: two 12ft lanes, asphalt overlay on the concrete plus 2ft AC pavement with 2ft shoulder in country and in towns diagonal parking; it went ba-bump only on the driver’s side. The City Works: four 11ft lanes without parking. And Country New Millennium: two 14ft lanes, 12ft shoulders, gentle curves and grades avoiding the small towns. But near big cities its 4 to 6 lanes to interstate standards, even when I-95 is only a few miles to one side. For me it is a toss up which is more frightening towing my trailer: the old depression era road or the new interstate. In all cases, the country side looked prosperous, crops in the fields, yards tended, towns busy.
In Lexinton SC, we passed the Barnyard Flea Market and RV Park. The market was empty, but the RV park was very attractive with well kept grounds. They also had paved overnight parking with water and power.
Next to the RV park was a skating rink where Juice used up a lot of energy.
