Our thoughts and best wishes to the people and tourism industry of this wonderful state, still being ravaged by Hurricane Florence. At least one bright note, though: the Outer Banks amazingly report minimal damage from storm:


Many residents who evacuated North Carolina's Outer Banks ahead of Hurricane Florence made their way Saturday back onto the barrier islands, a popular tourist destination spared from the worst of the storm's wrath.

While other parts of the state were suffering catastrophic flooding from a storm that caused at least seven deaths, county officials and business owners on the low-lying islands reported relatively minimal damage, and there were no immediate reports of injuries or fatalities.

Just walking around downtown exploring local boutiques and restaurants is fun. Definitely visit the Biltmore while there. I also love Chimney Rock and Lake Lure which is just a short drive from Asheville.

Blue Ridge Parkway...try to get to the top of the 2 big peaks there.  Clingman's Dome and Mount Mitchell. It's fun to ride on the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad in Bryson City, about 50 miles to the west and there's good minor league baseball and Saturday night NASCAR racing in Hickory to the east.

My wife and I may be heading to Asheville in a few days. Any tips?

It's Monday at The World on Wheels but instead of lamenting our lost weekend, we're finishing up our trip to North Carolina by taking in the beautiful fall colors of the Blue Ridge Mountains:

Well, bless our hearts! The World on Wheels is headed south today. Come see the only destination that made me try to relocate as soon as I got home. It's a tour across North Carolina:
