Day 6: Rain, rain go away

... and brought home as a souvenir for his grandfather!).

Back at the cabin, we discovered the internet was still down. The cabin uses satellite so the rain completely disrupted the signal. We didn't have cell signal either so we had no way of checking the weather radar OR calling the boat rental company (where we had made reservations). We sat around for an hour or so ...

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

Day 1: White water rafting on the Tuckaseegee River with Smoky Mountain River Adventures. $17/adult, $12/kid

We originally planned to go with RaftingwithKids. When we got there, we found a rickety shack that was closed with no explanations. Did not look like nice facilities at all. Moved on next door and found Smoky Mountain River Adventures. Beautiful and new store with ...
