    I've spent some time in the "triangle" area and liked it quite a bit. Something for everybody and some of the nicest people I've ever met. I also have friends near Asheville. Absolutely beautiful!!

    Rick - I've always said if I could live anywhere in the world, it would be the Asheville/Black Mountain area. I have lived in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill "triangle" area most of my life.

    Matclone - don't know about any water issues but everyone in my family has turned out okay and yes, get about half an hour outside the base and you're at North Topsail, which is where my grandfather moved after his retirement. Really nice there, except for the occasional hurricane

    In the summer of 1990 I worked on the Appalachian Trail, based out of western NC. Granted, I haven't seen every place in the U.S., but to date, it was the most beautiful place that I've ever been to in the U.S.

    (However, I suspect that that will change early this summer, as I will be going to Glacier Natl. Park!).

    Ms. Stardust, obviously you turned out okay. What did your grandfather do in the Marines?

    Here's a story on the water issue.

    One day I'd like to walk the Appalachian Trail. Maybe find Tammy. I'll have to learn to deal with humidity again though.

    Ban, get ready to be blown away. Do you intend to go backcountry? The trek out to Kootenai Lake is my favorite. Order your trail permits early because they don't issue many of them.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    No, we are not. We have a million and one different hikes planned, but that is not one. I'm really excited. We were all slated for it last year, and two days before we left our home was hit in the Iowa floods. So, the trip was canceled.

    I'm beside myself with excitement for it. Doing a big circle tour of Theodore Roosevelt NP in North Dakota, Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and Badlands. Badlands is all that I've seen of all of them so this is going to be a great trip.

    Let's just hope for no flood!

    If you were a leatherneck, how the hell did you get duty in England? (that would have to a really plum location in my view)

    I'll concur with Ryou that it's an amazing place. I want to take my wife out there soon. At least we need to make the trip while there still are glaciers in the park.
