So after departing sunny Ringgold, we began the first proper road-leg of our tour. This one began by retracing our steps back to Atlanta, before setting off North East towards the mountains. First stop was a little place called Winder, to meet up with some of Leah's friends - Josh & Ellie, and Paul & Rebecca.

... the Blue Ridge railway line. Our choice was the #1 B&B on most travel sites: Aska Lodge. The owners, Ric and Janet deserve the accolades as Aska Lodge lives up to it's reputation. Terrycloth robes, bamboo linen, specialist breakfasts and incredible hosts made it an unforgettable experience.
