Country Boys RV Park

Madison, GA

We left Lake Pines RV Park, Columbus, GA, and drove northeast to Country Boys RV Park just south of Madison, GA, on Sunday, 2/3.  We traveled the first 17 miles on 4-lane U.S. 80 and then the rest of the trip, except for about a mile on I20, was on 2- lane roads.  It was an uneventful 2.5 hour trip of about 130 miles.

Country Boys RV Park has pull-through sites with full hookups, 50 amp, cable, and a clear southern view for satellite.

The nightly rate is $25 per night, and we’re here for two nights.  The park is older and a bit run down, but the camp host was very friendly and helpful and we’ll stay here again if in the area.  I got all the utilities hooked up and the satellite dish set up just in time to settle in and watch the Super Bowl… and the commercials.  Smile  Other than a couple of visits to Walmart and a stop at a recycling center, we stayed close to home.

After just 10 days, my laptop crashed… again… Saturday night.  It’s rather frustrating because I just spent the last week reloading and re-setting everything back up and getting it back close to where I had it before the first crash!  Of course the computer repair shop is about 5 hours away, so I guess I won’t be going back there!  Sad smile  It’s 4-5 years old, so it’s time for a replacement anyway.  I’m very much looking forward to getting a new one. 

Tomorrow, Tuesday, 2/5, we’ll be back on the road.  We’re headed for J. Strom Thurmond Lake north of Augusta, GA, where we’re excited to  be starting our first volunteer position with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers!

  1. Well cool! So that's where you are :) Anxious to hear all about it!

  2. Can't wait to hear about your volunteer job!

  3. Grr, computers! Remember when they said computers would make our lives much easier and simple? Probably said by the same people that promised never to raise our taxes.

    We're sure excited that you've landed your first workamping position. We may have to drift over that way! :c)

  4. Steve and I love our volunteer position. Hope you have as much fun.

  5. In a new twist on computer woes. my laptop has decided it will not let me type in your comments box. SO I am hunt and pecking this on my phone to say how great I think this is!! I'm ready for pictures any time now. Don't work too hard. Race tracks nearby Mike??

  6. Wow! That's awesome! And, you've already been there a month!! Can hardly wait to hear about it. You know we just love the COE parks :)
    Hope you get a new laptop soon. I think they all have an expiration date installed inside and no matter what you do, you still end up needing to buy a new one!
    Congrats again!

  7. We're going to be in the area later in the year; will be looking forward to hearing your experience of the JST Lake area.

  8. After replacing 2 laptops in 4 years I decided to try the Apple MacBook Pro route, so far so good. It did take some getting use to and Apple has free workshops to help learn their products. Good luck with your laptop.

    Safe travels

  9. So, they named a lake after that guy, did they? I'm sure it's beautiful anyway.

    Enjoy! Glad to meet you.
