Where I stayed
Greensboro on the hill

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Over the past few days we have stayed in Augusta, Georgia, and Greensboro, North Carolina  and passed through all the towns in between as we move toward home. 

Our first night out of Brunswick took us to Augusta to spend the evening with Jeff's brother Richard and his wife, Peggy.  Since they relocated to Georgia from Albany several years ago we have tried to stop and say hello once a year when we drive near Augusta.  It's always a good chance to exchange information about what each brother's respective families are up to.  This year was no exception.  We had a great meal and good company with the brothers trading "barbs" and the sisters-in-law catching up on family doings.  As many of you know, I have been tracing Jeff's ancestry for the last few years.  I have done pretty well with the Haines side, taking them back to the mid 1700's in Nottingham, England.  I have been less successful with the Jones', Jeff's mother's side.  My failure to find anything more about Jeff's great grandfather than "John Jones, born 1844 in England" is pushing me to my last nerve.  In repeating my frustration with the Jones' to Richard and Peggy, they came up with a suggestion on how to proceed, reminding me that there once had been a story of how John Jones may have changed his name on entering this country from England.  So I am anxious to get home and with renewed energy pursue those Jones people once again.  Thanks Richard and Peg for giving me that motivation!

From Augusta we headed to Greensboro which seemed about half way between Georgia and our last stop in Arlington.  That was absolutely the only reason to stop in Greensboro as the campground Kathie picked out didn't turn out to be much of a draw.  One thing the navigator/trip planner learned on this journey is that there are few campgrounds open at this time of year anywhere north of Georgia.  The ones that are open tend to be rather limited in their accomodations.  This particular one in Greensboro ended up being on a hill with such excessive slope that we were unable to use the automatic levelers.  Lesson learned for Jeff:  even though the RV is equipped with levelers one needs to carry some 2' X 4's for just such occasions.  The up side was that our calf muscles got a good work out that night walking from one end of the motorhome to the other. 

And on we move toward hearth and home!
