Hurricane Mathew

Upon getting a mandatory evacuation order, we loaded up the TT again right after returning from 10 days up at Mistletoe State Pk and headed west as fast as we could to avoid a 12 ft tidal surge and 120 mph winds. My security cams at home on St Simons Is GA went offline at 7:20 this afternoon as the electricity went off. Hopefully, we will have a house to go home to on Sunday. I-95 is still closed and some of I-16 east.
We are currently at Uchee Creek military campgrounds at Ft Benning GA. Beautiful place...and weather!

You did the smart thing leaving. I saw where some did not. Hopes and prayers you return to an undamaged home. Good luck.

Glad you made it out safely.... nothing like having a second home on wheels to stay in. Praying you have no damage when you get home.

Good luck. We always took the TT when evacuating from south Louisiana. Ended up living in it while I rebuilt my home after Katrina.
