Back to Asheville, NC

Aaah it is nice to be back in the land of trees! All that sand and cactus stuff gets boring after a while.

We are back in Asheville again, this time trying Bear Creek Campground instead of our old standby Wilsons.
 We are here for a week just regrouping and relaxing a bit more than the constant touring affords.

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.
Bear Creek is also right next to down town but unlike Wilson's isn't walking distance to Tucker's Dog Park.
While here we also took care of routine oil change #2 for this trip.
We visited a few antique stores and the good used book store we found last time. I managed to trade in 4 of the books I read on this trip (all either used or free) and buy two new books to read.
On the way west we tried the new Catawba Brewing company so this time we had to drive out and actually hike to Catawba Falls. It is a pretty cool set of falls.

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.
