We will be joining with our friends from “South of the Border” for the Upstate MINIs 2016 version of their History / Mystery Tour: The X-Files
Start for Appalachian Mountain MINIs will be at the I-26 Rest Stop 1 mile south of Exit 40 (Asheville Airport). Departure is 11 AM sharp. (Start for Upstate MINIs will be at Target on 8199 Warren H Abernathy Highway in Spartanburg. Departure is 11 AM sharp.)
The truth is out there. We will be headed to PARI (Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute) and arrive there about 1pm. AMM will meet up with Upstate MINIs at the Table Rock Visitors Center. There are picnic tables at PARI and you may want to bring a bite with you for lunch. The tour of PARI starts at 2pm ($6). After this tour we will head up for a short run on the Blue Ridge Parkway and down to Brevard NC for an early dinner with arrival about 5PM. Departure from Brevard will be at 6:30PM and then we head to Sassafras Mountain, the highest peak in SC, for sunset. After sunset we will head home. Be sure to bring your radios, cameras, and folding chairs. Chairs may come in handy waiting on sunset at Sassafras.
