We finally Were able to get out....

We finally Were able to get out....

October 22, 2020 2 Comments

This month we finally were able to plan a mini vacation. We planned a long weekend in the mountains of North Carolina. It was a quick trip, and after a few days there we realized it was too quick. Next time we will make it longer. 

Though it was quick, we made the most of it. As much as being on the water is a passion of mine, there is an equal love for getting airborne in a small private plane. A Cessna 172 would be my choice. After a small delay because of weather,  we finally departed Jacksonville. The weather played a part in our departure and we had to adjust our arrival as well. Meaning, we couldn't make it to the Asheville airport, we had to land in Spartanburg and drive in. It was one of those days that the mountain tops and clouds touched each other. We made it to Asheville and we were there for the weekend.

   

Day 1 was a day for first time adventures. We set out early so that we had time for a local coffee shop, Summit Coffee Co., most days start with a coffee shop. Then it was time to meet up with our guides at the French Broad River Adventures and receive instruction on exactly what canyoneering is and how to safely do it. Let me say, I highly recommend the experience. What's not to love about repelling down the face of a waterfall for a couple hundred feet! While the helmet may not be the best fashion statement, I did find a way to get our aqua camo  shirt in the mix. We finished up the day with some small hiking trails and dinner in downtown Asheville.

 

The next day was all about big dreams and pretending. We visited the Biltmore Estates and dreamed of what life could be like. Quickly realized that we were way behind schedule to make it to that level in life, so we just pretended for an hour that we were in our home. The views, the gardens, and the home are a must if you've never visited before. 

 

So the last day, or what was supposed to be the last day, ended up being a weather day. Meaning, I couldn't fly us home because of the weather. So we shopped at a local farmers market. Of course I needed to get some Jelly, Hot Sauce, & Apple Butter most of which are half gone by the time I'm writing this. We made the most of it, considering the extra day a blessing. Early the next morning we departed Spartanburg and headed home. The skies were blue and not a cloud was in sight, it was a beautiful day for a VFR pilot. Once we landed at home there was one last thing to do... go grab some local BBQ from Mission BBQ. We failed to find good BBQ in Asheville.

My take away for the weekend is this,

  • Make time for vacation
  • Allow for the weather
  • Be adventurous  "Catch the Drift"
  • Dream Big
  • Our Pocket tees are great for the weekend getaways
  • One last thing, enjoy your favorite BBQ
"The Drift is always carrying you somewhere. This is what we love most about life. We’ve learned, it’s not about where the Drift is taking you, but what you do while on it. We exist to remind you to Catch the Drift and have some fun along the way.
