Highland Haven Open - Crazy Rumor

Ugly Rumor - NOT TRUE
Rumor: "Highland Haven Closed because of bad water" ... NOT TRUE

Don Shafer, past president of WBCCI, has let us know someone has spread a malicious rumor. Why? Who could even imagine?

Our mountain water is pure and tested every season by Bluewater Testing and we are enjoying our 41st season.

Richard Kushman
President
Highland Haven Airstream Park

Ya know what they say...$h!t flows downhill. If that's the case then Highland Hills is protected for many years to come. We've only stayed once, but we hope that Highland Hills remains for many years to come. It's a great place to stay.

Hey Stewart -- good for you! Anything to recommend about local sights? Know that we sure enjoyed eastern Kentucky a couple years back! This area could be a real destination for us snowbirds.

Stewart,

A big "Howdy" you everyone at HH from the road! Annie and I are looking forward to "Stockholder's Weekend" and the cool mountain air this Fall.

Give our love to Julie. Her garden looked wonderful when I came up to pick up our trailer.

Dick

We stayed at Highland Haven for the first time this past May. It is terrific. Go on down to Floyd on a Friday night to the Country Store where you will sample a bit of the region's musical heritage. Jack

Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Great touring, biking and hiking! Floyd for bluegrass music and Roanoke if you are interested in a more cosmopolitan flair! And cooler than the flatlands during the summer!

Should you enjoy a night out for dining and music try Oddfellas in Floyd. Live music while you dine that might feature a solo artist or a small group playing a wide variety from bluegrass to blues. Natasha's is another nice spot that opened recently in Floyd. All serve wine and beer. Check em out. Don't forget Fridays at the Floyd Country Store. This is not to be missed. Grab an ice cream cone and watch the dancers strutting to the hill music or try it for yourself. Whatever you do, go over one night and have fun.

For a great cheeseburger (yes... chili, slaw, onion, pickles) and cold draft beer, plus great friendly people, check out Tuggles Gap Restaurant at the intersection of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Highway 8 (MP 165.2). Then hike it off on the trails at Rocky Knob on the BRP.
Don't miss the local wineries, too. Near Tuggles Gap and along the BRR is Chateau Morrisette (retail, tour and lunch) and Villa Applachia.
Harvest Moon is a great healthy grocery, located on Hwy. 8 northeast of the (one) stoplight, toward Christiansburg/Blacksburg.
Enjoy!

Please help me get un-confused.
You are showing a Fall Special (the month of October) and there was scheduled and then cancelled a get-together the last weekend of the month.
Is the get-together ON or OFF the schedule?
We signed up to attend and would love to be there but we're confused.

Just a suggestion... since you have a web site, I suggest scanning the water quality test results and posting them. As someone in business of running a public water system, terms like "pure" and "mountain water" are nice for marketing, but they aren't a substitute for the actual testing data. Water from wells in "pristine" locations can have constituents and contaminants. In fact, the next big issue in water treatment concerns microconstituents. Things like caffeine and steriods are so ubiquitous that trace amounts (ppb) have been found in remote locations far from direct human influence. I'm not saying your water system has any of these... but I wouldn't claim any water system in the lower 48 is "pure," even one caught from a melting glacier at 12,000.

Spreading a rumor about your business being closed is just mean-spirited nastiness... but the best response is factual data. Public water systems are required to produce a consumer confidence report every year, explaining exactly what is in any given water supply. While 99.9 of your customers will take you at your world about the water at your park, addressing the .01 is a pretty easy and cheap fix.
