Dear Hubby and I went to the mountains of Western North Carolina (WNC) this past weekend. We went last year around this same time. You'd have thought we would remember to check the Appalachian State Univ. football schedule! We didn't last year and we didn't this year. Yup, home games. Traffic was nuts. At least this year we checked the game time. We ate sometime during the second quarter so there was no one in the restaurants. We weren't so smart last year!
We stayed at the KOA in a Kamping Kabin which was great.......except for the 38 degree weather we woke up to. Luckily, KOA had put little space heaters in each cabin and we did take sleeping bags and extra quilts. Still.......getting up at 4:00 in the morning to run to the outhouse wasn't as much fun. Ok, so it's not really an outhouse but it was a separate building with no heat and no shower. Think of gas station bathroom.
We did a lot of sightseeing along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Most of the leaves had changed but it is still beautiful.
