We rolled in to Pointes West Army Resort on the shores of Strom Thurmond Lake in Appling, Georgia in the late evening on Day 2 of our journey to San Antonio.
Our friends the W.'s had reserved two cabins right on the lake, and had even stocked our fridge for us with our kids' favorite stuff - what great friends!

The cabins were rustic and a little run down, but who cares when you can throw a rock from your back porch into the water! Really they were a bargain - $85/night for a three bedroom cabin with a full kitchen and bath. Unfortunately you have to be military to get them, but if you're DOD and you're in the area, they're well worth it!
