Yeah, I'd rather work than take that kind of vacation. ;-)

I did that loop from your birthplace a few Christmases ago. Took a
little less time, drove a little less distance. I'm afraid I didn't
'get' Gaitlinburg. Of course, it was winter, but the weather was pretty
nice. Is it just a Southern thing, or something else wrong with me? The
trip across the Great Smokey Hills was nice, we stopped in some little
valley and wandered around old buildings, etc. for a while. Asheville
was nice. I really enjoyed the Christmas at the Biltmore experience,
dinner in the converted coach house, choir singing around the huge tree
in the atrium, etc.
