Charleston, SC

After several days in Sumter, I went up to Charleston and stayed at a commercial park a few miles south of the city, Lake Aire RV Park.

Took a trolly tour of downtown Charleston to get a feel of the city and went to Fort Sumter National Park Center. You have to take a boat ride out to the Fort and my timing was wrong plus the heat and humidity was so high so I passed on this trip. The Aquarium was loaded with screaming kids so I passed on that as well. The next day, I toured the aircraft carrier Yorktown which was great. The presentations of the history of the ship during WW2 was very well done and there were many restored planes on the flight and hanger decks. Much climbing up and down stairways all through the ship and I was pooped at the end of the day as it was hot and humid again.  Next to the carrier was the submarine Clamagore, destroyer Laffey and Coast Guard cutter Ingham all of which I checked out. Charleston was a nice city to visit.

Summary:

Elks Lodges - 8   Escapees Parks - 5   Public RV Parks - 6

National Parks - 7   Battleships/Carriers - 2   Forts - 4

Expenses: 3 months on the road with an average of $1821 per month
