Getting Ready to Travel

We’ve spent another great summer in western North Carolina. We saw waterfalls, went on some good hikes,  saw several fun amusements and camped at some beautiful places. We’ve been coming here to this area of NC for the last 3 years, and sadly, we still have not seen it all. There is so much toContinue reading “Getting Ready to Travel”

Birthday Trip: Eastatoe Falls,Looking Glass Falls, Sliding Rock, Slick Rock, Ash Grove, and Bridal Veil Falls

This year’s birthday trip was a hot one. The first day wasn’t so bad because all the waterfalls we saw were roadside or just a short walk. The first one we came to was on private property in Rosman, NC. They graciously let people park behind their house in a designated area and walk toContinue reading “Birthday Trip: Eastatoe Falls,Looking Glass Falls, Sliding Rock, Slick Rock, Ash Grove, and Bridal Veil Falls”

2 Days, Triple “Peaks”: Grandfather Mountain, The Blowing Rock, and Chimney Rock

Our first stop for the day was supposed to be Linville Falls, but rain and lots of fog deterred our hike. We will have to save that one for another day. We continued on our journey to Grandfather Mountain. We had made these plans ahead around work schedules, so we had to do what weContinue reading “2 Days, Triple “Peaks”: Grandfather Mountain, The Blowing Rock, and Chimney Rock”

(Last year we had the van thatContinue reading “Panthertown (Cold Mountain Gap), Schoolhouse Falls, Paradise (Wolf Creek) Falls, Lake Glenville, and High Falls”

Asheville Zoo (WNC Nature Center)

If you’re looking for something not too out of the way to do other than shopping in Asheville, NC, there are a couple of places that sound interesting. The botanical gardens is free and doesn’t close until 8:30pm. The Arbortorium is similar, but it costs $14 to get into. This may be a great placeContinue reading “Asheville Zoo (WNC Nature Center)”

Rufus Morgan Falls

This waterfall is rarely seen because it it not well advertised. We’ve been enjoying the cascades on Wayah Road and coming to Wayah Bald for 3 years and we never knew there was a waterfall off that road. We happened upon it in a brochure of all places, for Asheville. We couldn’t believe we’d neverContinue reading “Rufus Morgan Falls”

Satellite and Cable TV Alternatives

This subject can be for house dwellers as well as full time RVers. These days, it seems like to get the specific few channels we want to watch, it requires getting a cable or satellite package that is expensive for one, and secondly has way more channels than we are interested in. There are someContinue reading “Satellite and Cable TV Alternatives”
