On the Road to REBarCamp RDU
Last Thursday I left home before the sun came up to head to Raleigh, NC for my first REBarCamp. I had mistakenly thought that Raleigh was in the middle or western part of North Carolina, and decided to drive from Nashville. As I started to work on the details of the trip, I discovered my mistate. Not only that it was over 500 miles one way, but I would also have to find a route around the famous Rock Slide on the Tennessee/North Carolina border on I-40.
Thankfully, as I was making these plans, Susie Blackmon posted a link on one of her blogs about alternate routes around the rocks. The drive from Nashville to Raleigh is quite beautiful and relaxing. It was made even more so by following the Google Map that Susie provided. I exited I-40 near Newport and followed along Hwys 25 and 70 until I got to Hot Springs, NC.
The route meandered along the French Broad Scenic River for many miles. These are the views that I enjoyed on the way to Asheville, where I was able to get back on the Interstate to finish my journey. The mountains were in every direction.
Even missing the beautiful fall follage, the views were breathtaking.
Shortly I will be posting on the incredible REBarCamp itself. So many great facilitators, and many new friends!
