RE: 2014 Prep
NC has definitely been a change, especially living so close to Charlotte.. You pretty much can kiss having any property goodbye, but since NC and TN have HUGE national forests everywhere (which are legal for OHV use), there's no need to have land at the house cause there's so many places to camp and wheel.

But, there's a lot of nosy neighbors for sure, and if im going to be building a buggy down the road, im going to have to find a place farther on the outskirts. Thankfully... were only talking $800 - $1000 a month for 2 door garage and attached house...up north, a place like this would be close to $1500 - $2000, or at least near the binghamton area.

But, I know people do it, it seems like the majority of builds I use to watch on Pirate were always in very tightly knit communities in a 1 to 2 door garage and a short stubby driveway. I think ive just been spoiled lol.

I do miss, however....a nice big country bonfire with friends and family in the middle of nowhere... I might not have this for years Sad

Ps. thanks for the kind words guys. I am hoping to see many pictures from the up coming broome tioga!

RE: 2014 Prep
My brother in law was going to move up to the Asheville area and the way he described it made it seem like a place I could live. Kind of hard to leave everything behind but it way old help if he moved there first.

RE: 2014 Prep
I was out in asheville exploring a few weeks ago...

The trip out was awesome, and the closer we got the more we started feeling at 'home'.

But... I must say.... its not what I was expecting. Understand, I come from a heavy art back ground, 'art fag' comes to mind when I remember my past high school days ha, anyway.... I believe theres a thin line between beautiful meaningful (possibly functional) art and art that has been made under the influence of heavy drugs and 'free living' (aka homeless/broke). Anyway, Asheville looks and feels like it has been heavily influenced by the latter of the two.... very similar to Ithaca...but even more run down.... Theres no noticeable 'craft' or 'hard work' present...just, 'hippy-ness(?)'....

Ashevilles beautiful, and I am sure the surrounding areas holds better values....but man, was I bummed! I was already applying to places out there hoping to move and quickly changed my mind when I returned. I could never see myself living near that area, but I sure would love to live out near the mountains! Asheville is beautiful!

anyway, these are my views from exploring approx of 20 miles around the area for a day.... obviously I havent lived there, so who am I to say.... But lets just say, I am writing this cause I, myself, was EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED! lol.....
