    Boone/Lenoir folks: Is there a minimart on 321 between Blowing Rock and Lenoir?

    I thought there was something at the intersection of Richland Rd and 321, but don't see it on Google Maps. Maybe its further down closer to Lenoir? I was going to do a big loop from China Creek/Globe to Richland Road/Penley/Sampson and will likely need H2O from somewhere, preferably without filtering creek water, melting ice, drinking my urine, etc. I may have to leave a cache somewheres...

    Thanks!

    You are probably thinking of this gas station...it's the closest
    http://tinyurl.com/m5xelas

    That is still a ways down a steep hill (I'd hate to go down there just to get water and then have to climb back up). I'd opt to filtering water over going down to that station. You have unlimited spots to get water on Richland.

    Now all that said just above where you cross 321 (like less than 1000ft) there is a souvenir shop and I'm sure you can probably get water there along with moccasins and apple butter.
