  This was a short four day trip out east to some familiar locations in Tennessee and North Carolina. Travelers on board included Elita and myself. It rained much of the time but the drive was enjoyable in spite of the rain. Activities included eating breakfast and dinner and drinking coffee. Cities visited included Gatlinburg, TN and Asheville, NC. The resort town of Highlands, NC was passed through and was disappointing due it is upscale feeling (too many damned rich people!). Visiting outdoor stores and bike shops were high on the list-o-activities.
