Reggie, so happy you and Denise could take these past nine months, and go see America. I'm jealous, as I would love to do something like that, but I would never get my husband to leave home for that long, or that far away. The Carolinas did have to change course after the textile industry shut down, and moved overseas. That I know, as someone who was raised there in the Carolinas. In some cases, the giant old textile mills, left standing to rust away, have been renovated and redeveloped into upscale luxury apartments. My father and I went to Asheville, N.C. many times, when I was a child, buying or selling truck loads of produce at the big farmer's market there. It was my dad's second job, as he was into the hotel industry, as his first career choice. I don't know what it was about Asheville, NC, but just about everytime when we would go there, I would get very sick. My parents couldn't figure it out, nor could I. I still loved going there, however. Asheville has the tourists to back their economy, unlike many other cities. I look forward to reading more about your experiences from traveling across the US, Reggie.
