Speaking of factory tours, I wanted to mention that some of you in the area might want to consider the BMW plant tour near Spartanburg, SC. Right off I-85. I did it with a camping friend last week, and it was a great tour. Instead of looking at the action through glass, as in some plant tours, you get right out on the plant floor in safe areas. They also have a really cool museum there. The museum, itself, is worth the stop. It's free. The guided tour is $7.
