Dallas, Texas is about to get a lot closer to Wilmington. American Airlines just announced they will be operating non-stop flights between Dallas and Wilmington International Airport beginning in December. However the new flights are not permanent.

You might have seen Jason Frye’s byline on restaurant reviews published in the Wilmington StarNews.  You may have used some of his recommendations from a Moon travel guide pointing the way to old-timey Appalachian music near Asheville, family-friendly beaches at the coast, where to fish in the Smoky Mountains or how to find fresh North Carolina oysters.

Misadventure is Better

Aug 19, 2015

David Campbell graduated from Hoggard High School, went to college, and planned to spend a year in France.  Somehow he ended up living abroad for 7 years. 

Mr. Campbell has written a book about his travels, particularly relishing mishaps and accidents-basically, embracing the unexpected:  Misadventure is Better (Adventure is good. When it goes wrong, it's Great)
