In one of the coolest places to live, be cool

Western North Carolina, the Asheville area, is one of the coolest places to live.

There are so many beautiful places to see, so many fun things to do and so many cool people in one area. Get yourself a “Friends of the Smokies” license plate, slap an Asheville “Go Local” sticker on your bumper and you’re good to go.

Ooops. Perhaps you forgot to remove the front license plate that the previous state you lived in required you to have.

It really doesn’t matter which side of the table you choose to sit at, as long as you’re a cool, open-minded, free-thinking, quality human being (who’s here for the common good of the local community, before his/her self interest). Then no one really cares, too much, where you came from. Just, respectfully, enjoy.

So, in short, when driving in and around the Asheville area, PLEASE, be attentive, use your turn signal, if you’re lost pull “way” over and regroup and, most of all, always BE COOL!

    yeah, he doesn’t have to put up with all the nasty trash and riff raff in AVL…he lives in pristine Weaverville…

    I’m on the same page as Roberto; Asheville is the only place that has ever felt like home. It’s beautiful and peaceful; eclectic and wildly unique. Anyplace is what you make it but there is certainly something very special about Asheville and I’m glad my spirit guided me here.
    Love, Peace & Blessings…
