We're back from Boone with a plan...

Sell everything we own, pay off all our debt, fix up the house and sell it, and move to the perfect house in Boone.

Okay, it's really more of a dream.

We got in the car to leave Boone and it was 75 degrees, comfortable. After we made the major descents out of the mountains and hit the flat ground, it was 90 degrees. When we got home over an hour later, it was still 90 degrees. We opened the car doors and the humidity swept in like a wool blanket. Now, it's after midnight and I'm about to go to bed. The temperature here is 81, in Boone it's 73. If there were no other reason to want to move there, and there are many more, the cooler climate would be enough.

Also, It's beatiful, clean, quiet, scenic, quaint, historic, artsy, serene, rustic, friendly, prone to live music (a lot of it bluegrass, which I like), peaceful, and the population is part hillbilly, part college student (Appalachian State University is there), part entrepeneur, and part vacationers. Suffice to say, it's an intriguing and almost mystical place and I highly recommend you stop there should you pass through North Carolina. Oh yeah, and there's lots of hippies, too! (Bonus?)
