We've been to the Asheville area a lot, just the first time in an RV. I bought 3 gallons of tank antifreeze ($13). Topped off the on-board LP and 20 pound LP tanks. (that was about $3, lol). I think that with the expected temps I'll be ok letting the grey and black tanks fill up (with antifreeze). And if I heard correctly, the fresh water tank gets enough heat from the coach that I shouldn't worry about that much. I do worry about unprotected water lines. I will open the cabinets at night. I may use the bathhouse some, but I sure like my private shower for convenience. I think the park will be just about empty. They told me I could pick whatever site I wanted when I get there and that we can have the site next to use for our dolly and Jeep parking. I think she might have said something about crazy Floridians wanting to camp when it's cold. I am a photographer so I think I'll take some photos for them. The website could use some new, bigger pics.
As for the Biltmore. $60 per person. Never been there, but I hear Christmas is a must see.
We're also planning a short trip to do a little Jeeping here: http://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/nfsnc...49004&actid=93
These are other options we're looking into doing in case you have any opinions:
We'll also be looking around more to see what part of the area we want to move to (Black Mountain seems to be the front-runner). We love it there too much to have to drive 10 hours to get there! We really appreciate all of your input. So glad this forum exists!
