I think I have to give up on the pictures on the blog, Ms Micky's offyourfacebook page seems to be the place where everyone is watching and commenting. Of course there is an RSS feed as I mentioned yesterday, so at least folks like me aren't totally locked out :-)
After a peaceful night parked out front of Stuart Greenes home in Asheville, we awoke fresh and ready for the drive to Charleston South Carolina.
Our actual departure out of Asheville was delayed a couple hours due to a visit to the 'Biltmore Home', the largest private hoe in the United States (afaik), built as a 'vacation home' by George Vanderbilt. This place is amazing, and I'm gad we took the time to look at just how well the elite$ of the previous century lived.
All the 'guides'' and workers on the premises seemed a bit MK Ultra, partial nazi like vibe, but I guess they've been trained by thos who know how to handle human resources.
No pictures allowed inside, or use of the facilities. Even though the home boasts 43 bathrooms, in a home built in an era when most homes still had an outhouse.
How ironic is it that I visit the family home of Anderson Vanderbilt Pooper, and I'm not allowed to poop there?!
After the Biltmore we hauled ass down I-26, unfortunately we ran out of time to make a 1.5 hour detour to visit Marvin & Joshua's Exxon Station at Exit 135 on Route I-95 (SC) for a quick meetup and free fill-up, but we spoke on the phone and they were dissapointed, but understanding. I felt pretty bad about missing them, but that's how it goes when you're freewheeling the hotpockets I guess.
About 2 hours from Charleston, we stopped at Live Oak Farms, somehting Micky found on an app of fresh food places (name forthcoming) and picked up some frsh eggs, milk, cottage cheese and homemade jam and other goodies. A real treat!
We arrived at our campground around 7:45pm, just in time to get our reserved spot on a beautiful lake and watch the sunset while drinking some Virginia Chardonnay.
The show starts in about an hour from now, wifi at the camp is good when it doesn't break up, presumably some other RV-er bittorrenting wife-swapping pr0n, so I've opted for trying the AT&T 3G connection. I just did a test and it seems to be functioning, but fully expect Murphy to mess with me when we go live.
