Budget Vacation The times dictate bargain hunting. . The ultimate bargain, it must be considered, is something without cost. 'The best things in life are free" is something that everyone has always heard. In North Carolina, there are a wealth of things to see and dp that don't require an admission price. One of the most obvious things is scenery. Of course, the scenery is free in other states, too, but Tar Heel scenery is hard to match. Perhaps the state's most famous free attractions are the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Here nature's design is always on display, and there are no ticket counters. The flower show in North Carolina is spectacular. Nearly 3,000 different species of flowering plants · are found throughout the state. There are many free gardens. For those who like the touch of sand on their toes or a gentle ocean breezei it doesn't cost a cent to stroll down one of North Carolina's beaches. And the shells are free for the collecting. Crabbing and salt water fishing are free, too. North Carolina has 24 state parks throughout the state, and all have their special interest. Admission is free, and picnicking, hiking, nature study, and sightseeing head the list of costless events. The parks range from Mount Mitchell, highest peak east of the Mississippi, to Hammocks Beach, with its free passenger ferry near Swansboro. The North Carolina Zoological Park is in the "Interim Zoo" state, but the facility near Asheboro has already attracted international at. tention. About 30 acres known as the Interim Zoo have been developed at the. 1,371-acre site, and over 100 animals representing 45 species are already in residence. The Interim Zoo is free. When the first permanent exhibits are built during the next two years, it will mark the beginning of what will be the first total natural habitat zoo. Visitors are encouraged to wander about the site, walking the nature trails, and hiking up 937-foot Purgatory Mountain. Picnic tables await those planning to bring lunch. There are five National Historic Sites in North Carolina, and all played an important role in the heritage of the United States. Perhaps the most famous site is Wright Brothers National Memorial near Kill Devil Hills. Here on Dec. 17, 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright made the first flight in a power- driven airplane. Fort Raleigh National Historic Site on Roanoke Island near Manteo is the site of the first English colonies in the new world, 1585-87. "The Lost Colony" was one of those colonizing efforts. Guilford Courthouse National Military-Park near Greensboro is where Gen. Cornwallis, with 2,000 British troops, met in battle Gen. Nathanael Greene, commanding an American force of 1,420 veterans and 2,900 raw recruits. The date was March 15,1781, and Cornwallis' army was crippled, and the way paved for British surrender at Yorktown a little later. Moores Creek National Military Park near Wilmington is the site of the first battle of the Revolution in North Carolina, Feb. 27,1776. This Alpine Sliding By Robert J. Dunpby 1976 JV. Y. Times Service NEW YORK - A new form of outdoor recreation called "Alpine sliding" has spread to the United States from Europe, and if it catches on here as it has on the Continent, America's ski slopes will be as crowded in July as they "are in February. The new sport combines the thrills of tobagganing without its chills and spills, and the "slides" are so safe and so easy to install that five major ski areas in the United States and Canada expect to have facilities in operation this summer. The first two Alpine slides in the United States opened at the Bromley Ski Area in Vermont last weekend, and construction is nearing completion on others at Attitash in New Hampshire's White Mountains and at Gatlinburg in the Great Smokies of Tennessee. Still others are planned at Vernon Valley- Great Gorge in New Jersey and on Mount Cascade, near Ottawa, Canada. The new sport, according to its developers, Demag of West Germany, requires no special skills and "can be enjoyed by children of all ages, from 6 to 60." Costs are 26m CHARLESTON. W.VA. minimal, since Alpine sliding em- ployes the ski resort's chairlift system for uphill transportation and a Fiberglas sled on wheels for the return "slide" down the mountain to the starting point. Riders have complete control over their speed in descending the mountain, sitting in specially designed sleds that travel along a 4,200-foot-long "computer-engineered" slide made of transite, or asbestos cement. En route to the bottom of the slope, riders pass through woods and meadows and around a series of curves and straight-aways, accelerating or decelerating with the use of a control stick as they go along. The plastic sleds are equipped to carry one adult or one adult and a small child. On the uphill ride, the sleds are attached to the side of the chairlift. ' The American representative of Demag, the Alpine Slide Corp.., Bromley Ski Area, Manchester, Vt., says the system can be installed for about the same price as a chairlift, or roughly $200,000. At Bromley, the Alpine slide costs $2.50 for adults (or five rides for $10) and $1.25 for children 7 to 12 (five rides for $5). Children under 6 ride free. Bromley's capacity is 400 rides an hour.
