We are at a very nice, new campground in Big Stone Gap ,VA.

Going to stay here til Monday before heading toward NC and Black Mountain, our last stop before Carowinds on Thursday. Doug is ready to stop driving the windy-curvy mountain roads, and Lily is ready to get out of this dog house on wheels.

Travel safe, everyone.

Black Mountain is gorgeous, cute little town, and there is a beautiful college campus (Montreat) right next door that is worth seeing.

In fact, there is a campground on the Montreat campus! Don't know any details, other than it is too small for us but would be great for your rig!

If y'all are feeling adventurous, the Blue Ridge Parkway is pretty close to Black Mountain. If you don't like that, there is also Old Fort nearby, another cool town to wander around in.

We camp in the Black Mountain frequently and really enjoy the area. If you're a bar-b-que fan I recommend grabbing a meal at Okie Dokie's Smokehouse in nearby Swanannoa, or if you're in the Asheville area, 12-Bones.

Thanks for all the suggestions, folks!

We stayed here a couple of years ago, going to do it again. Close to family we are visiting in Black Mountain and very nice.

Mama Gerties RV Park and Campground

The campground we are at in Big Stone Gap is new, clean and tidy with lovely and well-maintained bathrooms. It is on the Powell River, more like a big creek, which Lily got to run and play in yesterday afternoon. Happy doggie.

Jessie Lea RV Park

Going to really enjoy just being still today.

Terry thought I should let everyone know I ordered a cake for the rally with the rally logo on it, with spring 2012. I was going to make it a surprise, so, SURPRISE!!!

We will be arriving on Thursday evening.

We are still on schedule to make it as well! We are slowly returning home (near Toronto) from a stay in Florida/Georgia/S.Carolina and just arrived today at the James Island County Park campground at Charleston.

We are here until Friday morning and as things stand, plan to head up to join in on the rally sometime on Friday.

I just checked the weather forecast for Charlotte, and it said scattered thunderstorms on Fri/Sat - of course that can change in a week - anyway it wouldn't change our plans unless the forecast gets much worse!

Looking forward to meeting some other Airforum members!

Well Brian, we all want you to stay on schedule so you can be here at least by Friday. Charleston is a great place, and JICP is super nice. Might have to tear yourself away. About 200 +/- miles.
Spring time weather here changes daily. The standard line is if you don't like the weather, just wait a day, it will change. We are hoping the forecasters miss their long range prediction and we have good weather. The prediction for the rally though is "a fine time will be had by all".

I am not 100% sure I can make it, but I will try. I hope to be pull in on Saturday morning. My wife has signed me up for some sort of race at the national whitewater center at 1130 that morning, so I wont be around all day, but I should be back at Bambi by supper. I will try to call tomorrow for reservations. Not sure if it will be just me, or the whole family. Will everyone still be there on Saturday night ?

That's the plan, at least for now.
