Having been a Blue Ridge Mountain Club (BRMC) homeowner since 2008, and spending five months a year here, the question we are asked most often is, "What do you like most about BRMC?" The answer is: our lifestyle here!
We truly enjoy the great outdoors and the good, old fashioned fun that involves being together in a much more serene atmosphere.
One of the most favorite activities for my 10-year-old and the rest of the family is riding our ATVs. We have built a "fleet" of four ATVs, and really enjoy the trails throughout the property. Whether it is a family hike, a little fly-fishing, a picnic at the Watson Gap Pavilion, or afternoon snacks on the trails, nothing beats being outdoors and together. Usually the ATVs are the means of transportation to get there and back.
In this age of technology, it is nice to see the kids and the family getting off the computers and away from the "gadgets" to enjoy nature at its finest. It seems when we are here it all turns into nothing but family time. It is almost a throw-back in time to old fashioned values that helps us reassess what is important in our daily lives, which always comes back to family.
