    I was there last weekend and liked it so much we booked a nice long week trip there in a few months.

    This boat is a classroom.

    I wish I had a chance to eat at the Front Street Brewery. I had 5 of their beers and the food looked really good. Definitely gonna eat there when I go back.

    I was in Asheville, NC for a week.

    It sucked and I would never ever go back again. I'm pretty sure that the entire region was comparable. :fil:

    Ummm, the boats, old south architecture, etc...who am I kidding? I hooked up with a local band who let me jam them 4 or 5 songs with my 12 string every night, so I spent most of my time trying to bed down every southern belle in town. :c
