In Response to RE: Memoir Prompt April 2012: Your Favorite or Least Favorite Job by rmcginnis
I think you are right. Blowing Rock sounds familiar. It was an unplanned trip made on the spur of the moment and we were heading for Boone for a reason I don't remember. We began to have brake trouble on the mountain roads and checked into the next motel we found. It was on Friday evening and we ended up staying the weekend while we tried to decide what to do about the brakes that had just been repaired. It was on Tuesday before we could reach the people who had repaired them (Firestone in Macon) and have them arrange for a repair.
We drove the car to Asheville where there was a Firestone store who was supposed to repair the brakes at no charge. We ended up spending 4 days in Asheville due to the fact that while test driving our car they ran into a fire hydrant.
While it was a terrible trip car-wise, it was great in that we discovered lots of galleries, etc. in Asheville and saw the Biltmore House, in addition to seeing Blowing Rock. We never did make it to Boone.
