I had to take a week’s furlough, which meant a week with nothing to do but no money coming in either, so we couldn’t get too expensive. My boyfriend took the week off work and we made a vague itinerary of places we wanted to see and where we’d like to go. We planned to drive much of the Blue Ridge Parkway. But it was March, and they don’t use salt or plow the parkway (who knew? thank you guidebooks for not telling us this useful tidbit). SO… my boyfriend and I ended up driving over the Smoky Mountains from Tennessee to North Carolina, spending a few days exploring Asheville, NC, and then meandering up winding, back country roads through North Carolina and Virginia. We hit several of the spots we wanted to see, explored several waterfalls at the suggestion of the B&B owner where we stayed, and even had time left over to visit my family in Ohio. It was wonderful! 4 years ago
