Exit 57/SC-64/N.
Just off I-95 20 or so miles south of I-26 (Charleston exit). This is a popular place for travelers= safety in numbers. Super Walmart with a Fuel Station Diesel too. very good price ($2.02/Gal) there's about 20 Class "A"s some Travel trailers and a couple "C" here in the lot. No trucks allowed.  About 5-6 hours from Orlando. Picture is in one direction another bunch the other way..

When I pulled out in the morning there was a LOT of campers in the lot; 50+.  Made it to New Smyrna Beach.. sitting with friends at a beachside bar; this is quite the party town. one exit down from Daytona. water temps about 74, air temps in the low 80s. suppose to hit record highs today ~90!!

Trip to Florida was nice; spent a couple days with good friends on the beach @ New Smyrna Beach. The beach was packed as it was in the upper 80's the entire time we were in Florida. Took 19 hours to make a 14 hour trip down and 22 hours to make a 15 hour trip home. Seemed everyone had the same bright idea to visit Florida over the holidays. We did SeaWorld and Busch Gardens and opted out of Disney and Universal based on the realized presumption that those parks would reach capacity. On Monday the 28th My friends who live at the beach said they'd not seen it that crowded in  a while. I commented that it was probably a combination of the great weather and the low fuel prices.
Was absolutely delighted with how the Super "C" Duramax handled the 2400 miles with and no issues. I was scooting thru traffic where possible at 79MPH. Had to ditch 95 on the way home at the Georgia / SC boarder due to complete gridlock and opted for a 321 - 301 - 26- 77 - 81 alt route home. posts from others making the trip on FB reveled that was a good decision. Fuel was an amazing $1.59 reg and $1.79 diesel in Columbia SC. We boondocked in the RV lot at Busch Gardens for a couple days including NYE. Chatted with a crew building a new Coaster "Cobra's Curse" for Busch Gardens, stationed in the RV lot, and they hooked us up with free electric for the duration. BAck home, last night it was a balmy 12 degrees.. oh yeah... it's winter
