3 hours in Asheville


First of all Beth and Warren let me tell you how much I enjoyed meeting you both last night at one of Asheville's fine pseudo Mexican restaurants. I must admit, if I ever had real Mexican food I wonder if it would taste like chicken. Doesn't everything?

My life today was to be filled with such fun tasks as paying people money that they are owed for services such as ummm gas, phone, insurance etc. Then I saw your business card may I say 'card of distraction' sitting on the ledge next to Trish's keys.

I got up to stretch and just looked at the clock. I have been playing around your website for over 3 hours. I thank you. It was well spent!!!!

Someday, I will share with you my year of trying to figure out what I was going to do with my life. In that time, I asked people I knew where they wanted to visit me when I moved and I checked those places out. Along the way I went to the 'Price is Right' just to see hottie Bob Barker and was a raft guide on the New River. (Didn't say I was a good raft guide…we swam a lot… almost lost a prosthetic leg). In the end it was Lake Tahoe, Albuquerque and Asheville. I have been here about 5 years. I tell people I moved here because of the three, it is the closest to my folks in Ohio and that is true. However, there is just something about this place that was a soft place to land.

So, I will be following your sight, laughing at the photo's and learning about your life on the road. Thanks for sharing it all. I have loved these 3 hours. By the way, I don't believe you when you said you were sitting in the grass in Brooklyn, NY. Is there grass there? And… the guy with his Subaru… I am telling you it probably worked for him helping pick up chicks!

If you are still around here…. Brevard, NC is home to the white squirrel. Not an albino squirrel but a true white squirrel. I have never seen one anywhere else.

Finally, don't know if Trish told you this. She bumped eating dinner with her sister last night because she wanted to get together with you two again. After meeting you, now I know why.

So, I will be reading now that i am up to speed. Trish and I will be talking about you more and more as we read your blog. You always have a place to stay here. We have an extra tent... just a joke. Trish can sleep in it.

All the best…..
Pam F
