- Crossing State Lines
Well my favorite two legs and I went on a road trip last week with the trunk full of four legs samples and marketing collateral. The trip served several purposes; little R&R, getting a car down to Florida for a friend who owns a home there and wanted a VW convertible bug down there for the winter, finding new sales opportunities and checking out some mountain retreats for possible investment some day!
The weather was dry and clear when we pulled out of our driveway at 5am but less than 2 hours later, across the Pennsylvania state line we hit rain and frankly, this is no exaggeration, it pretty much rained 24/7 for the next six days of our trip! No convertible driving for us!!!
As we sped up and down the hills of West Virginia, I spotted some pretty amazing information on the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. Did you know that riding the Biltmore Estate is number THREE (3) in the WORLD???!!! WHAAAATT??? 3 in the world?! I must go and see!!
Some quick talk at the security gate and several phone calls later and we were whisked to the Biltmore Equestrian Center (BEC) where I fell in love with every square inch of the land, the barns and every four leg I spotted!
I shared some tins of Nickers with Terry in charge of Administration at the and met a couple wonderful four leg owners and hand fed Count a beautiful 16 hand chestnut warmblood who was being groomed by his owner.
