Day 6: Rain, rain go away

A travel blog entry by elainesj on Jul 18, 2014

Day 6: Fishing at Tumbling Waters Campground & Trout Pond. $4/lb. (we caught 2 trout and paid $6). All bait and fishing gear provided. Was supposed to rent a pontoon boat from Almond Boat Dock($150/4 hours) but rained all day.

It was raining when we woke up - but we weren't going to let it stop us! We did rearrange our plans to go either tubing in Deep Creek or rafting on ...

Day 5: Hiking Appalachian Trail (at Fontana Dam). Then swim & rope swing at Cable Cove. Free.

Today was a quiet, lazy day. After sleeping in, we packed our lunches and headed to Fontana Dam to hike that section of the Appalachian Trail. We hiked for a little over an hour (the boys turned back earlier with the kids) and it was a steady uphill the whole time which was ...

Day 4: Riding at Nantahala Village Riding Stables. $22/hr. Motorcycle rental at Sportsbike4rent. $79/4hrs.

Kicking ourselves for not booking we decided to go for a short walk and then return in case their 10am group did not show up. They showed up at 10:05am. At that point, the owner felt bad ...

Day 3: Treasure Hunting!

A travel blog entry by elainesj on Jul 15, 2014

... We ended up paying for Will and myself and the kids helped. So we had 4 buckets between us. Had to dig our own dirt from a little "tunnel". Apparently, this was all native dirt, meaning no gems had been planted here to allow for instant gratification.

Took us about an hour to go through a bucket each, which was plenty of time for me. Only Matt wanted to do more - the rest of us were pretty tired - ...

Day 2: Super duper wild tube ride

Day 2: Tubing with Gator Tubes at Deep Creek. $3/tube

Gator Tubes is one of the first rental places u see on the road to Deep Creek. Run by a retired probation officer, they charmed us with their warm Southern hospitality. Lifejackets for the 2 little ones were an extra $5 each. They tied the tubes on top of our van and off we went!

It was a pretty long hike (10-15 min hike carrying our ...
