It's currently 6:30 a.m. in the morning.
I've made it through to the start of another day
but it's really hot inside the car
so I may need to do something about that.
I've made it to another McDonalds
so I've got a hot coffee
so I''ll stay here for a bit.
My next goal is to get to Virginia in the next few days
because my friend lives there.
But I'll have to figure things out before I get there.
I want to go ahead and set off for Virginia
but getting there in one day today would be hard.
But if I go through Georgia to get to South Carolina
I found a place that might be good for camping
so I'll start by driving up towards there.
I just passed into the state of Georgia!
Although, nothing's really changed yet.
It's like a forest, or like,
some kind of mountain road.
I've been driving through this foresty road for a while.
I'm shooting to reach Virginia by noon tomorrow
I've only stopped once in Georgia to get some gas
and now I've made it to South Carolina already.
This is South Carolina
but it feels REALLY rural out here.
I'm like, this is it!!
There so many trees
and you can't really get by without a car
This, more than anything is closer to
the kind of "America" that I was looking for.
So I've made it to the camp grounds!
In the office,
if you can even call it that,
there's no one in there
but there are other people camping out
like there's nothing but people pitching tents here.
When I called they said it's OK to put up a tent
so I guess I'll just go ahead and get the tent set up.
Actually, I'm putting up a tent by myself
even though I've never done this before.
But, I'll just give it a try.
I'm here anyway.
I guess I did it!
I'm feeling a little iffy about
the shape of it but
this is way better than sleeping in the car.
Here is the toilet
and a SHOWER!!!
Obviously it's not the prettiest or cleanest
but just the fact that there's a shower
is enough for me.
This is a light.
The surroundings are pitch black
so I'm going to use this
and maybe make some ramen.
But first there's this...
This is what it looks like.
I wonder if you can just open this
I think you can...
So you open this
and connect it here.
What the -- ?!
It won't... what the...
It doesn't seem to work this way...
it won't connect.
So then I guess for today
...ramen is not going to be possible tonight.
Today, the food I have is...
So I guess then
this is going to be where I sleep tonight.
I can't believe I couldn't use the gas to boil water
that was kind of shocking.
I have chips, it's snacks but, I guess for now
I'll say goodnight!
