    If anyone goes to the Biltmore Estate ,, be sure to bring lotsa cash ,,
    I went down there today ,, on a get out and go thing for the rv ,, anyway if u want to tour the estate ,, this time of year ,, it will cost u about $49.00 a person,, we had 4 onboard ,, and for those prices i could have stayed at the beach for a couple of days ,, but anway it was a nice tour ,, but kinda pricey for someone who already has made a fortune ,, and still is ,,, (the family of the Biltmores, that is)
    Gonna head down to the Hermitage next weekend and ck it out,,, alot cheaper..
    It's kinda funny ,, i have lived in TN for about 15 yrs ,, and always did the vaction thing here since i was 2 ,, but never have i been to either place mentioned ,,, have been to the grand ole opry and opry land ,, (before they closed it)
    Anyway just some input on a random subject :) :)

    Hey 730, I know what you mean about not seeing key things where you live. My wife and I were born and lived in Utah for our first 35 years and didn't see many of the local tourist sights until after we retired (Oklahoma) and started RVing out West. We went hunting and fishing all over Utah, but didn't see any reason to go sight-seeing as all the sights would always be there. The big problem was that we left the State before forever, ever came along. :eek:

    We too, went there a few years ago. I dropped my wife off an had her get in line to get our tickets while I parked the car. When I found her, just about to the ticket window , I saw how much the tickets were I politely told here she could go thru but I was not going to spend 50 per person to see someone elses house. So we went the the craft fair that was going on in Ashville instead.

    Hey David do you live in Charleston SC? I have a son who is in the Air Force there and he also doesn't like the traffic. He bought a house last year in Summerville, so I guess he getting use to living there. (12 years now). Hey if you live there let me know and I will look you up when I am over there and maybe we can grab a cup of coffee and talk about camping.

    enjoy traveling.

    H2H1, I live in Conway,SC just a few miles out from Myrtle Beach, used to stay in Charlotte NC and came to beach where I have a perm site. My dad passed away two and and half years ago so I move back into the old home place. Then on Aug 25 this year had a stroke which left my left side poorly. Doing rehab with all the pretty Techs and looking forward to getting back on the road.

    Re: Biltmore Estate

    David sorry to hear about your dad and your self , maybe all the petty rehab tech will get you back to a comfortable area so you can still enjoy traveling. My dad had several stroke at one time and pretty took him out of his everyday life shortly after the strokes he also passed on., but keep up your spirits and with God speed you will recover.
