South Carolina Warnings and Dangers

  • fog in the morning

    Every time we travel I-95 through South Carolina before 10 or 11 in the morning, we run into miles and miles of dense fog. I assume that it is due to the moist air in the region from the ocean and the many lakes and ponds and swamps near I-95.But it is a real danger when you cannot see more the 4 or 5 carlengths ahead and you are traveling at the...

  • Alligators

    Once on the Endangered Species list, alligators have made a comeback. Normally shy, they rarely attack people without provocation. Don't tempt them, and above all don't ever feed them! Keep your distance.

    South Carolina very easily gets up into the 100's in the summertime. It's very easy to get burnt or overheated outside if you're not careful. The heat starts around April and lasts until October. The hottest months are in July and August.

    When traveling through SMALL TOWNS, obey the speed limits PLEASE! They WILL stop you. Also most smaller towns have noise ordinances. If you have booming music or something like that just turn it down. You'll save yourself a fifty dollar ticket. Also watch out for deer! They are everywhere. Don't speed on those curves. And if staying in the country...
