Dina and I had one, precious day open this week so we went on an adventure. We had heard about Segways, who hasn't, but had never been on one. I was so excited I hardly slept the night before. Was I going to be able to use it without making a complete fool of myself?
Turns out, they are incredibly easy to use and maneuver. They can go up or down hills with ease, over rough pavement or even over grassy terrain. They also stop fairly quickly and turn on a dime. The best part is they run on electricity, so no pollution or gas consumption, and are whisper quiet. You can actually have a conversation while you are moving along on them, just like if you were walking together side-by-side.
As an added bonus to our day-of-fun, we negotiated a great deal for guests staying at our Waynesville, NC Bed & Breakfast, Brookside Mountain Mist Inn. Take $10 off any tour. Just mention you are staying at Brookside and you get the discount. We want to thank Wes at Moving Sidewalk Tours of Asheville for his knowlege of the history of Asheville, his humor and consideration of our guests in providing a great discount.
Just another way we work to make sure you enjoy your Smoky Mountain escape. Come for the scenery, stay for the Segway adventure!
