April 28-May 3rd: I'm arriving on Delta at 2:10pm and wondering if anyone wants to share a taxi/van to the Blue Ridge Assembly Center. Likewise for return on May 3rd (Delta 1:05 flight). Thanks! Karen

Thanks to all for your comments regarding Ashville.

I am thinking of signing up for this program - any thoughts??.
How many people are usually in the program???

I highly recommend this program! We experienced a variety of activities, and the speakers were outstanding! Our lodging was comfortable, but I wished there had been more time to walk on the beautiful grounds. I think there were about 35 people in the group.

I found the program interesting, especially the "behind the scenes Butler's Tour" of the mansion, if you are interested in the 100 year old infrastructure, heating and electrical systems. Lodging at the YMCA camp in Black Mountain provides logistical issues: some may miss a week without tobacco and alcohol which are forbidden; and there's nothing within walking distance except the forest. Thus, a considerable portion of the trip's time is spent on the bus going to/from destinations.

I am arriving in Ashville on a flight at 12:49 from Tampa. I already signed up for transportation. Is anyone interested in sharing? My cost is $50, could ask what it would be for two.

I am flying from Chicago to Asheville on 5/6. My plane arrives at 3:51 in the afternoon. Would anyone like to share a taxi to the YMCA? Thanks!
