Default Over 100 pics from resorts HHI and AKL Christmas 2015

This time we drove again but different route, thanks to many MO's who suggested I-81, so far pleased with driving and route.

Here at HHI for couple nights now headed to AKL.

Default Route for the trip

I-95 to Tappan Zee Bridge, took I-76 to I-81 south. First night break in Roanke VA. Did not made any previous reservation just wanted to drive till I can feel comfortable. Started 10:30am and finished 10:00 pm. With rain and fog all along not bad for first day.

Default Second day

Day started early as we finished early day before. Still lot of fog, not much rain. I-81 to I-77 no problem.
Took I-485 near Charlotte, back to I-77 and then I-26 and then took SC 21 to merge into I-95 and finally SC 278 to HHI.

SC 21 was suggested by the SC welcome center, cuts down distance and avoided traffic on I-26 and accident on I-95

Default Camp fire

Once again HHI CM got rated as most creative team among all DVC resort. No doubt they do good job entertaining kids at campfire.
