A mini-vacation, but a holiday all the same. It'll be our first little trip together since June of last year, when we went to St. Augustine for a whirlwind 2 nights.
This year we're taking the weekend in North Carolina. So far our itinerary includes:
- Leave Georgia at ass-crack of dawn
- Drive through Spartanburg to Charlotte
- Go here:
Where we'll enjoy a hard day of white water kayacking, zip-lines, rock walls, and more. We're really looking forward to it!
Attend the Carolina Renaissance Festival!
This is the whole reason we're going this weekend--it's their Sci-Fi/Fantasy Literary Weekend. Only one author that I'm familiar with: Michael Stackpole. But I have a lot of hopes for it! It's been at least 12 years since I've been to a RenFest, and then it was in the middle of Georgia summer. I think fall is much more suitable for faires, don't you?
Here's Where You Come In
Evan and I are going to be spending Saturday night and Sunday in Charlotte, but we don't know what else to do! If anyone's familiar with the Charlotte area, we'd be greatly obliged for suggestions! Preferably nothing too expensive, because as always, we're traveling on a budget (sigh).
