More from the mountains


We ate at one of our favorite restaurants in Boone, the Daniel Boone Inn. They serve family style, which means you don't really order anything. They just bring out "enough" fried chicken, salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, coleslaw, apples, biscuits, gravy, and probably a few other items I'm forgetting. Oh, and two country ham biscuits each. And if that wasn't enough, they do refills on everything except the country ham biscuits (dang!). I won't say it's all the best you've ever eaten, but it's all very good and it happens quick. Oh, they start you with vegetable soup, too. And to finish, they have a choice of a dessert for each person. Tonight was chocolate cake, strawberry shortcake, and peach cobbler.

Cost? Just under $40 for two adults, a six year old, and a three year old. I have no idea exactly how that breaks down, though.



Something we found but won't have a chance to do this trip is this awesome looking zip line tour. Kids have to be at least nine to do it, so our kids can't. Several friends I've sent this to want to do it, so hopefully we can get a group together to hit the mountains and try to get'er done!

That is so weird - when I was there 2 weeks ago I was thinking how cool it would be to zipline over the Blue Ridge, and here it is. I'm too chicken, but it's so great that it exists.

Here's some more weird for you: I know it's bizarre to leave a comment about a comment, but I can't even imagine Alisa having that zipline thought. Can you? Also, reading about that restaurant makes me hungry. . .

Maybe Alisa is doing acid now? I'm having a tough time picturing it myself.
