"Nothing could be finah ...."

Asheville is my home.

It is so completely green, overflowing with vines and flowering plants. It is easy to kick back on the porch with some sweet tea and listen to the blues and not really care what the heck is happening elsewhere.

I have travelled in and out of this town for the last couple years. It is the only destination I have ever returned to live in. It is friendly and outgoing, casual and warm. You will find people like to do their own thing here, go to the beat of their own drum, whatever...

It is a mix of hippies and punks, retirees and nurses, mexicans and irish, bluegrass and hip hop, sex pistols and grateful dead, artists and bankers, buddhists and baptists, peaches and figs. As small as it is, you will find someone or something that suits you. I guarantee it!

and autumn is on it's way....

Summer is almost over, soon it won't look like the shire....and I intend to head to the mountains to share with you some of the most spectacular fall foliage in the east! I don't mean to compete with Vermont, New Hampshire or Maine, but it's just as bright and we have warmer, sunnier days. Once again, North Carolina shines...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:green, rainy, warm, outgoing, musical, not too big, magnolias, crickets, hiking, waterfalls......
  • Cons:haze, slow, uneventful winters, a little far from the sea (my opinion)
  • In a nutshell:come on over and relax in the Apps. you won't be disappointed.

    Looks like a lovely place to live! Hurricanes seems to be one of the big curse of our decade! I hope they spare us!
