Last Thursday Rob suggested that maybe we go to North Carolina for a long weekend. What he really meant was that he planned on leaving that afternoon and driving 10 hours all night to get there. Well, for the past 23 years, life with Rob has been an adventure, so off we went on yet another one! The plan was to go to the Nantahala River in the western part of the state. Rob and Matthew would take a white water kayak class at the Nantahala Outdoor Center and Andrew and I would take a ride on the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. Since Matthew is all about kayaking these days and Andrew has always LOVED trains, somehow the plan made sense at the time. Needless to say it was a quick trip, but the boys had a great time. They even manged a little time to go tubing down Deep Creek in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
