The drive in was pretty, but we couldn't see any of the Biltmore. We then came to a building, which was the ticket booth and gift shop. Scott parked and Patti and I went in to get info. We really didn't have time to do a paid tour - all we were interested in was walking the grounds and taking a few pics, then getting back on the road. Well, the Biltmore Estate ended up being a Bust b/c without a $70 ticket you can't see even view the grounds of the Biltmore! Forget that - what a waste! We got back on the road, heading towards Knoxville. The views from the car made up for the Biltmore disappointment, as we drove thru the beautiful Smoky Mountains!

...and just like that we were back in TN!
We arrived in Columbia, and Steve and Patti unloaded from our truck, loaded their truck and hit the road to Mississippi! Home again, home again, jiggity-jig!
This was a very different vacation for us - totally not our usual, but the memories, the fun, and the laughs were just like every other trip we take together! We all learned tidbits of history that we didn't know before and we have memories that will last a lifetime!
I already can't wait till we plan our next adventure together! We've kicked around few ideas, but one thing is for certain - it will be a memory-making fun adventure!
