Okay.. I've found my final destination - Cherokee KOA, NC.
Per Hercules' advise (it's cold as F**K), I have decided to ditch the tent, in favor of a cabin on the river. This is what it SHOULD look like....
Its called a Kamping Kabin (cute huh?)
Unlike my previous holiday, where I dilly-dallied a week away and went nowhere, I have given my credit card in deposit for this spot, so hopefully that will offset the procrastination that sets in once I face an umpteen hour drive on a holiday week.
