Below: While driving on Interstate 81 through Virginia in their RV, the two RV Gypsies saw 3 Crosses and 2 USA Flags near Exit 296. So Karen Duquette quickly snapped a photo through the window of their moving RV. The crosses were erected by a large church along Route 55. Later, Karen read that the church was recently sold, but you might be able to drive there and get a closer look at this proud display behind the building. The two RV Gypsies were in their RV, not their tow car, so they were unable to try to get closer.

Below: The two RV Gypsies arrived at North Fork Resort Campground in Front Royal, Virginia. They came here to visit a friend who was initially available, but due to sudden circumstances in their lives, the two RV Gypsies soon learned that they were not going to be able to see their friends during this trip.

Below: After checking in at the guard station, the two RV Gypsies noticed that the entry road was paved, but very narrow with small ditches on each side. That could be a problem of two RVs met at the same time, but since check-in and check-out times determine which way and when the RVs will travel, an RV usually only meets cars while entering or exiting the campground.

Below: At the beginning, roads were paved, but NOT in the section that the two RV Gipsies were assigned. The paved road ares are often for long-term and permanent RVs in most campgrounds.

Below: The pools for the campground, which the two RV Gypsies did not use. The weather was hot enough, but the two RV Gypsies are usually too busy exploring the area to use the pools. By the time they return each evening to their RV, the pools are usually closed.

Below: The site that the two RV Gypsies were assigned and as usual it was a dirt and gravel site, as was the adjoining road.

Below: While taking pictures of the campsite, Karen Duquette noticed her very long-legged shadow on the roadway. So of course, she took a photo,.

Below: It is a good thing that the two RV Gypsies seldom, if ever, use the picnic table at their site because they are usually not in good condition. Plus they are usually located right next to their neighbor's sewer connection, which is disgusting. And some campgrounds ask that visitors do not move the picnic tables.
