We are back in Asheville again, this time trying Bear Creek Campground instead of our old standby Wilsons.
There are several new breweries we had to check out although we still like the outdoor space at Wedge Brewing the best! And it was full of dogs too! We didn't have Tucker with us.
We also tried a couple new places to eat and did some new hikes. Some of the Blue Ridge was still closed for winter repairs but luckily we picked hikes that you could still drive to.
While here we also took care of routine oil change #2 for this trip.
Repair note: I managed to flip the fridge door over and move the latch/handle and get it all back on the hinge. So we have a working fridge door. I had to hack he shelves back onto the door but much better than the close to $500 a new fridge door would cost. That's more than 1/2 the price of a brand new fridge for a plastic door!
Just a few more stops and we will be home.

We walked around the downtown and Beale St and saw the Ducks at the Peabody Hotel.
We also skipped Graceland but did hit the Bass Pro Pyramid.
One highlight for me was seeing a "Green Book" in person. We had recently heard a Pod Cast all about them and how Blacks had to use them to know where it was safe to stop for gas or food when they traveled around the USA.
The free tour of the distillery was really good. Sadly when we got back to the trailer (Parked in a nearby closed bank) we found our freshwater water tank was leaking.
And not just leaking but leaking till empty and we had just filled it when we left Memphis.
Good thing we are almost home!

We took the tour and before medicine really existed people had some strange ideas about things that would heal them.
The beer was delicious!

First a couple days In TX Hill Country where we had some great German Food.
We also hit San Antonio for a few days where we rendezvoused with my Brother and his Wife for a couple days.
After that we hit a Walmart in Henderson Tx and then on to Crater Of Diamonds SP in Arkansas.
We spent a few hours looking for Diamonds but came up empty.
It was pretty empty but we did was some Pro's do their thing. No one found a diamond the day we were there but usually 2 or 3 are found each day.
As a stop-gap measure I used gorilla tape to make a hinge which should keep the door on and usable till I can figure out a better solution.

Then we pushed on to Seminole Canyon State Park in TX a park on the Rio Grande.
