This was a difficult puzzle. There seems to be a change in the initial ratings of these puzzles. This was a very good job!!

Very enjoyable! Just hard enough to be fun (but I had to work it twice).

Tough one, as I'm not familiar with the places, but doable.

Hi! Thanks for the puzzle, it was fun I used to live in Union Grove NC, and have family in Wilkesboro and Boone. If that's the General Store I'm thinking of, I know the people who run it! small world God Bless

A good absorbing puzzle, well done!

As an Englishman and unfamiliar with the area, is a general store really a tourist attraction? shopping is my idea of hell!

Yes, the Mast General Store is a tourist attraction and a definite stop in North Carolina!
