:bagpipe: all books are open for discussion :bagpipe:



Has anyone ever "researched" where Jamie and Claire's home on the ridge would be in North Carolina? Would it be near Asheville (since a view of Black Mountain from their property is mentioned) or toward Charlotte (mid-state), or more north, towards the coast?????

I was planning a trip to NC and would LOVE to incorporate Jamie and Claire into if I can!!

:D

Thanks for the welcomes and it has already been fun. Thanks also, hippchick, for the Google Earth videos. I have since gotten an email back from Diana with a link to the ComputServ Forum with the description of the location of Fraser's Ridge, which is within 10 miles of Blowing Rock (actually going there this weekend to see the tree colors, so will be thinking of Jamie, Claire and the rest!).

RMK, if you take some photos please post them here. We also have a thread on "Where are you Exiled" that includes images of the OL books, especially Exile, taken in various locales. It would be great to have a picture of "Fraser's Ridge" with one of the books in it.

RMK, please post pictures of the Ridge for us. Never mind it will make keeping fiction and reality separate even more difficult than it already is for me. LOL

How fun! My daughter goes to App State in Boone! I was thinking all along that the Ridge might be somewhere around there. The descriptions of the land reminded me a lot of the drive up the mountain from Leonora. Is there an exact place? Can anyone tell me where? I will get some pictures the next time we visit!

There is a close location, and I know someone posted it here on the site. Give me a bit to find exactly where . . .
