nope... granted, it's Asheville, but this place was a welding shop before

So, long story short these two guys decided that they need to get a place to work on bikes in Asheville



Upside: way more space in the basement

Downside: all the tools and compressor will be gone... guess I have to get my own stuff now (it's over 20 miles to the shop)

Somehow it doesn't seem quite as cool as it did.

Just look where it is though, walking distance from about 5 Breweries, including the Wedge.

Me thinks ulterior motives for sure


And it puts the cool factor back in

Guess it's time to get the DRZ running again... maybe I get lucky and I'll be one of the first customers once the guys get the shop open (they are fixing it up right now).



And I guess I'll have to make Jambalaya for the opening... details to follow



and yes - the frame is from my "project in boxes" I own for over 20 years
Wow!

Now this is truly weird: I loaded the map, then it autoloaded the pics. I clicked on a little tab for Photos and when the photos panned left to The Orange Peel, it had a "xxx.jpg by Mark Johnson" in the upper corner. Pretty sure I've never been in downtown Asheville before.

Free X-Mas Trees

If you enjoy riding up to the mountains with your family to choose and cut your tree, one of my neighbors is giving them away for free. There's a variety of sizes, & pretty nice shapes. I didn't see any "Charlie Brown" trees.

They are on Wards Branch Rd, just off Hwy 321. About 20 minutes West of Boone. Bring a saw and wear boots or shoes with good grip, because it's steep. I got our tree a couple days ago, there were a few hundred (200-400?). Nobody was there, but a sign said "Be careful it's steep, take all you need for friends & family. God bless."

They aren't bundled, so are bulky. Need a pick-up, or maybe you can wrap it up in a tarp?


Ho! Ho! Ho!
