When planning our Spring travels up the East coast we had to make the decision if we wanted to go the coastal route or the mountain route. Initially the mountain route scared me as driving through that area did not seem like something we would want to tackle our first year out living in the RV. And with a 42′ fifth wheel its no small tow. But we decided the Mountain route was where our heart was. So next stop was Asheville, NC. Where we stayed on a mountain top with views that never got old. Heading up that hill was crazy scary and hoping we would fit into the spot was just as nerve-racking. But it all worked out and we had an amazing two weeks in Asheville. There is no shortage of breweries and food to enjoy in the area. We had our fare share. Our favorite probably being Ginger’s Revenge a ginger beer brewery. One of our coolest adventures so far has been our trip to Chimney Rock. Again a scary drive up the switchbacks with the dually truck, and pushing our limits of our fear of heights, but wow are we glad we did it. It was an incredible view and hike. We enjoyed a brew on the river and ventured down to Lake Lure to dip my toes in the lake where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray had their famous lift scene. And the biggest blessing during this stop of our trip was our newly made friends Karen and Mark coming all the way from Charlotte to visit us. We took a trip to Maggie Valley to see the Wheels through Time Motorcycle Museum. What a treat for Nick and his love of bikes and mechanics. We also ventured to the historic Grove Park Inn for a dinner at sunset. I do believe we fell in love with the mountains during this leg of our travels.
