We are making plans for our trip to visit the Biltmore Estate in Asheville,NC. April 23-26. We will arrive in Asheville on Thursday April 23. We will tour the house and grounds on Friday. On Saturday we can return to the estate and/or find other fun things to do such as drive the Blueridge Parkway,visit downtown Asheville,visit Chimney Rock Park,etc. On Sunday we will head for home. You can find more info about the estate and the specialty tours at www.biltmore.com

We are looking into hotel packages, and will post the information soon.

Let us know if you would like to attend so we can get an idea of how large our group will be.

RA, you guys could always fly out and join us. The estate grounds and gardens will be beautiful that time of year. Give it some thought.:)

We are thinking the same way. We will probably plan more trips with the Harleys this year, to keep the mileage down on the X for better resale value.:laugh::laugh:

Looks like maybe I'll become a Corvette guy down the road:dunno:, can't see myself buying a foreign vehicle.

It's pretty surprising how little the mileage makes as long as the car is kept looking near-new. Go to the Kelly Blue Book site, for instance, and put in the condition, mileage, etc., and you'll see what little the extra mileage makes.

Sooo, drive our beautiful XLRs without overly worrying about the extra mileage. The joy we all receive driving these machines makes up for the loss of a relatively small amount of $$$$.

My 06-V just turned 30,000 and an elderly couple came up to me and my daughter and remarked, "what I beautiful Cadillac, I didn't know they made sports model. I hope you enjoy it, did you just pick it up at the dealers?
Told her is was one month short of 3 years old and they couldn't believe it. The only thing I notice is the windshield pit marks from the two trips to BG. You'd think they could add something to glass when they are making it to make it more resilient. I only notice it when I'm heading into the sun and they are such small nicks. I know, don't drive into the sun.:laugh:

Map of drive on saturday April 25



This is the route we have come up with so far. We have had a lot of input from the "locals". We plan on driving it counter clockwise and make a few stops including a lunch stop in Brevard. We have Corvette friends that are going to drive the route next weekend.

My son lives in Columbia SC and I was planning to drive up to see him around the time you guys are going to be at Biltmore. I'll follow this thread and maybe I can join up with everyone. :rocker:
