Our location - Woodbine, MD

Ramblin' Pines


We extended our stay in Asheboro, NC for two days to allow the big nor'easter with its rain and very high winds to pass.  As it was, we experienced very strong wind gusts as we ascended the mountain from North Carolina to Virginia.

This is a view of Mount Pilot in north eastern North Carolina.  Mt. Pilot, the mountain and the town, are just a few miles away from Mt. Airy, NC, the home of Andy Griffith.  Those old enough to remember the Andy Griffith show may recall that the town of "Pilot Mountain" was a neighboring town to the fictional Mayberry.

Woodbine MD Even though the weather in the east in April can be a bit capricious, one of the best things about traveling from south to north is the ability to follow the spring north.  The Commonwealth of Virginia has the loveliest blossoming trees along I-81.  One of my favorite is the redbud.

And, as you can see, I just kept taking pictures as we motored along.

Woodbine MD After two days of travel from North Carolina, we arrive at our home for three weeks, Ramblin' Pines Campground, just west of Baltimore, MD.  As Maryland is our former home and our doctors are all here, we have come back for the annual check-ups.  This campground is situated in the rolling hills of Carroll County.
