Ha! I can't fix it up to yours and Julie's standards! My stuff is just that, "fixed up"...(zip ties and duct tape) whereas you guys restore stuff! I do admire you guy's talent!
See you after a while, we are trying to wait for new camper dishes to be delivered today before we leave. I'm going up the barn now to rig up some ladders to try to polish the roof. Hooked up and nearly ready, have to install the tire monitors.

Earlier today we went for a hike on the Kimsey Creek Trail at (sort of) nearby Standing Indian Campground, in the Nanatahala National Forest in NC. Really nice, and a great campground for future reference (boon docking only).

For The Musicians In The Group...

I stumbled across a small mom & pop music store in Hiawassee today. I'm not a musician so I don't know what I was looking at but it sure seemed like a cool place to me. The couple has owned this store for years and it's become a junk shop of sorts but contains lots of acoustic and electric guitars as well as banjos, fiddles and other stringed instruments. Some wind instruments too. They're usually open till 5:00 PM so there's still time to stop by and see them today (Saturday) or on your return trip to Hiawassee.


Pick-A-Way Music Store
487 North Main Street
Hiawassee, GA 30546


706-896-3639


The music store is across from Huddle House. The store is in an old tire shop (Uniroyal I think) and has a 70's black limousine parked (permanently) in front.


By the way, they sell propane too. I noticed the propane tank behind the store and stopped in to have our 30# tank filled. That's when I noticed all the instruments hanging on the wall and from the ceiling. They only accept cash.
