From Piney Creek to Mount Airy

Map picture

We arrived to Mount Airy NC at noon ,this is our 5th stop on the 2012 trip  ,it was so hot that we stayed in the trailer with A/C till 5PM and then took of to down town Mount Airy.

The Mayberry C.G (just 5 miles from town) can accommodate any size of RV,has full hookups including cable TV,but no shade at all.

We chose this place as It is close to Hanging Rock S.P,Pilot Mountain S.P it is also near to some nice towns and wineries on the Crocked road area.

The D/T is all about Andy Griffith and Wally Spencer,movie sets,old cars,gas stations and ice-cream soda parlors ,it felt like stepping back in time-but unfortunately everything (except food)is closed at 5PM….

So we strolled along the Main street ,treated ourselves with an Ice Cream soda and enjoyed the place, you would not believe the prices back then, I would like to change oil for $4.50 or lube for $1.25-how did it go so high since then???

Well, I saved $2.00 today –I washed the truck myself….

I hope the storm will stay away from our way and we can go ahead with our plans.

Thanks for visiting.

Hello Contessa,
Yes I did and it seems that we all like nostalgia including Old stuff, furniture,films and songs.
