I don't know where to start about our recent trip. We met the nicest couple of people anyone would ever want to meet...Betsy and George. Betsy, George, and I have been talking to each other on the computer for quiet some time. My wife has heard me talk about them a lot but has never corresponded with them. When Betsy first invited us to join them in Maggie Valley, NC I mentioned it to my wife but didn't think a lot more about it. However, a couple days later I told my wife we really should consider meeting them down there since we were planning on driving the Cherohala Highway this year. About a day later we were making reservations at the same motel Betsy and George were in. To put it bluntly, we had a great time with them. They are easy to get along with (of course George and I kept Betsy in line :) ) and it appears we have a lot in common. When we got home my wife made the comment about feeling like she had known them all her life even though she had never corresponded with either of them. I had a couple people tell me I was crazy going to meet someone that I had never met. I made the comment that I know them, I just haven't met them and I wasn't disappointed. It is so much fun to pick on Betsy. Of course, she gives it right back and that makes it even more fun.
