Carolina State of MindJune 13, 2008 Made it to the Carolina's and the Blue Ridge Mountains. We were going to wash the trailer before we made it to the event but oh my goodness did it ever rain on our way through the hills and tunnels. When we lived in Kansas, we never could understand why people would say that there were no trees in Kansas... compared to this neck of the woods, yes, Kansas is desolate. Also, can there be any more "ville's"? We are staying in Hendersonville, passed through Asheville, saw signage for Jonesville, Fayetteville, Greenville, Jacksonville, Mooresville, Mocksville. We're still looking for Mikesville or Chrisville.
I realized that I must be a slow driver when Byron of Buttrub.com passed me not only once in Knoxville but again in the Asheville area. The competition BBQ teams are so nice, he waved both times as he passed the trailer. I think he was giggling the second time around... or was that just Chris laughing? Either way, we made it safe and sound. The event in Tryon takes place at the local park and the cookers have a beautiful place to compete right along a creek with plenty of mature trees and lots of shade. You know it's gonna be hot when we parked our trailer next to the supersized misting station - looks like two carports put together - bigger is always better! Especially when it concerns keeping cool!
