After we attended the SAQA conference in Philadelphia, we set out south towards North Carolina, then we went west and  just kept driving... hope you enjoy our adventures. We had a really memorable time. The USA is a fascinating place. 
We ended up at the Alegre Retreat at Gateway Canyon Resort - blog to follow about that.
