Hardly enough time was available for all of what Asheville had to offer. The Biltmore estate will have to be seen at another time as many miles needed to be covered today and much of it via the interstate.
After a few hours of driving South we made a stop in the college town of Athens GA. This town has more great bars/brew pubs per block then any town I’ve seen. Plenty of parking and wide open streets made this stop a winner. Before our final stop for the day in Valdosta GA we encountered a massive rainstorm on I75. The GTV drove flawlessly on it’s new tires.
