The view at our RV site from the deck.
4/22/15: Arrived in Sylva, NC to look at a potential real estate investment. BEAUTIFUL views in this RV park.
We will be here until Sunday or Monday to head home. We were looking at a map of the local mountain & whitewater activities, and I now have several more to add to my bucket list:
- Gorge zip lining
- Whitewater rafting
- Fly fishing in waders in the river for trout
I am sure before the next few days are over, there will be several more…

AND of course, we could not help but take the “selfie” pic with the rushing water river in the background!
Now to the “white knuckle” part of the trip. I don’t know if you have ever done any mountain driving, in an RV, pulling a 4300# SUV, BUT, let me tell you, I had pucker factor of 15 today! (scale only goes to 10). At one point, I had the pedal to the floor, climbing on the highway and we were only doing 35 MPH… Engine was screaming, she was angry at pulling all the weight.. I am not sure what the weight of my rig with tow vehicle is, but I will be stopping on the way home to the weigh station to find out. Both with and then without the tow vehicle…
Hopefully, the ride home will be easier, since we climbed this morning from elevation -88′ to now over 3100’! It is currently 64 degrees, 31% humidity, and MY NOSE HATES IT! Just like being out in Las Vegas… without the gambling.
Have a great night y’all!
