Throwback Thursday, The Winter Trip- 2008

November 21, 2013

Senior year of college a group of friends and I decided to take a long weekend trip, just to get away and have fun… and soak in a hot tub. The first year there were six of us and we rented a cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains. After college the tradition continued for several years.

The Annual Winter Trip- Lake Lure, 2008

We’ve done Gatlinburg, Hilton Head, Lake Lure, Maggie Valley… and maybe some others in-between. My memory struggles as I get older. This is a picture of the group that went to Lake Lure in January 2008, several years after the first trip. I remember some excellent football watching, really good chili and stuffed french toast, a big game of scrabble and watching the primary debates for the 2008 election. It was a lot of fun. I’m the top left with the black scarf. My college roommate Heather is in front in the blue, her husband Brooks is next to her in the Duke shirt. One of my other roommates, Ashley is in the back right in the white shirt, her husband Greg is next to her in the orange shirt. Many other friends are in this picture, these two ladies though… we were the three that started this trip. Over time the trip has fallen to the wayside…. living all over the county, families, careers…. life has just happened. Still, love these people though and all the fun we’ve had over the years.

It was always a requirement to have a hot tub on the deck at house rental. I mean, it made or break the decision on the rental. This really makes me want to add one at my house!
