Daytona, thanks for the heads-up. We are scoping that out on the map.
Jeffrey, I totally understand your approach to holidays, and I wish I could follow your example. Unfortunately, hubby and I are still stuck in the hamster wheel of full time work, so we have to take the days off as they come... One day though....
Rally - thanks for that hint. Good stuff to be found there.
Mike - great advice, thank you so much!
Turns out our friends know a few spots along the Kinds River, so we might head up into known territory. Nothing is set in stone yet, though.
Thanks again to everyone who chimed in here
