I spoke too soon, been there https://www.ashecountycheese.com/ and hit a few shops and lunch. Pretty sure we were on BRPW coming back from Boone and detoured. But still no real help on best route while towing.

Directions to Stone Mt.

Folks,

A bit of a rain delay so thought about direction info to get there.

These are the directions from the park website https://www.ncparks.gov/stone-mounta...ark/directions

Ran into editing time limit on that last directions post.

From the park website:

Stone Mountain State Park is located in Wilkes and Alleghany counties, six miles southwest of Roaring Gap. From I-77 North, take Exit #83/Hwy 21 North/Sparta/Roaring Gap (you will exit from the left lane). Go north about 13 miles to Traphill Road/state road 1002, (you will see a brown state park sign) and turn left. Go about 4 miles to John P Frank Parkway (you will see a brown state park sign) and turn right. Follow the parkway to the park, about two miles.

From the west, take NC 16 to NC 18 in North Wilkesboro and then turn right onto Hwy 268 East. Go about 3 miles and turn left at Airport Road. Go about 3 1/2 miles and turn left this becomes Traphill Rd (SR 1002). Follow Traphill Rd to John P. Frank Parkway about 11 miles and turn left, follow the parkway to the park.




We have driven to Roaring Gap and back on Stone Mt. Road/Oklahoma Rd 1100 off of 21 just S of Roaring Gap. Not sure Iíd recommend that route while towing. That might look like a route of off the BRPW thru Roaring Gap but might be better going a bit further south on 21 to Traphill Rd and then west on Traphill.

If you are coming in on Traphill Rd from the west and the GPS says TURN HERE and its not John P. Frank Pkwy. Donít take it.

Gary

Do we have any chefs experienced in making Aebleskivers coming to Alumaslider?

We've got the skillet, but need the secret handshake and demo.

Never heard of them

I grew up in upstate SC, so I had never heard of this. So Google, I did:
http://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/...e-balls-414783

I cannot make this Danish dish, but if anyone wants Grits, a southern delicacy for breakfast, I cook them for my morning meal with hot sausage, and eggs.
I grew up on a farm, and 6:30 am breakfast sweets wear off about 9:30 to 10 am. Because we did our hardest work in the morning, early morning sweets were near taboo. After joining the military, I now hardly eat sweets at all.

Gary,
I realize this is from the park website, but it is apparently talking about coming from the south and west, not the west as in from the West Jefferson area. I will be coming in from 77 but leaving through Wilkesboro to hit 421 and then 221 to get to West Jefferson. I donít want to tow 16 into WJ.


As an aside there are several apple orchards on 16 south of Wilkesboro. We have stopped there several times to load up with fresh apples before coming home.

Al

For all our Slider and non-slider friends in the Southeastern US... Our thoughts are with you as that mess of Florence comes on shore.

We're still a couple of weeks out from the AlumaSlider, but we're wishing you all the best to get through things.
