We loved our stay near Hot Springs, North Carolina. But after a week of using their library as our office and camping in different spots at Paint Creek Recreational Area, it was time to move closer toward Hendersonville and get supplies for our Overland Expo East 2018 stay.
We left Hot Springs on a Saturday because we needed to arrive at Reeb Ranch and check in at Overland Expo on Tuesday. Saturday was our shopping day. Just outside of Asheville, we went to Wal-Mart and REI. We spent way too much time and money in town, but oh well…
We left town and went back into Pisgah National Forest to camp. We stopped at another free campsite where we worked to pump water. We even took the whole mattress out of the tent to dry and air things out. Well worth the effort.
Time was drawing near for us to arrive at Overland Expo and we needed to cram in some work to complete a couple of projects. We needed to burn the midnight oil with good electricity and Wi-Fi. And, a good, long, hot shower would be a nice perk before the event too.
We hope you enjoy this week’s episode as we recall our journey from Hot Springs to Hendersonville, NC, where we enjoyed our second AirBNB experience. A little room in a cabin, only 3 miles from Reeb Ranch. How lucky we were to make a last-minute reservation, so close to where we needed to be.
