Zippers

Up and out by 6:15. It was raining, and hard. We managed to drop Hayden off at Sandy's at the designated time of 7:15. This left us two hours and thirty minutes to get to Bryson City, NC in time for our 9:45 appointment.

We made the two and a half hour drive a three hour and fifteen minute drive. The extra forty five minutes was spent passing our destination, turning around, passing it again and turning around again, we're good like that. Nothing like showing up late somewhere and walking in to find four strangers standing there with their thumbs up their asses because hey! they can't go anywhere until the entire group shows up.

Regardless of the rain, the back and forth and the sneers we pretended not to notice, we zipped right along and had a fucking blast, in the rain, let us not forget the rain!

Three hours later we were back in the car heading home. This time around we made the drive in two and a half hours, as we should have. The rain let up about half way back, somewhere around Ellijay.


And no, this adventure is NOT the reason we didn't make it out and about trick or treating with Hayden. Although, now that I think about it, it may have had a little something to do with it. The rain on the other hand, buzz kill, for sure.

We went here: Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours located in the Nantahala Forest in western North Carolina...very cool!!
