Any Asheville folks out there?

I have zero pictures because I left my camera at home in a neck-spasm/tension-headache/prescription-meds induced stupor, but I am currently in Asheville, NC, and I am thinking of moving here in the spring. I'm wondering if I have any readers from here or who have had some serious experience with the area. If so, I'd love to hear your thoughts, make plans to meet up when I return, get your advice on neighborhoods, homeschooling, anything you want to offer. (We have dined like vegan kings and queens since arriving--I can tell you that!

Asheville is a great town. I lived in Boone for 6 years for undergrad and grad school. Great artsy, cool crowd with lots of cool shops and artists. The weather is nice. It's in a bit of a pocketso its not the extreme weather Boone and other areas of the mountains get. It's also a university town so it has a great vibe. Can't offer much else, but most people who go love it there and don't want to leave. We North Carolinians are great!

Alas, I live in NE Ohio, and I'm seriously doubting that you'll ever move here. But it would be really cool if you did. I would gladly employ your daughter as a mentor to my two girls so she could tutor them in How To Be Amazing.

I can tell you that my sister and brother in-law LOVE Ashville and hang out there all the time with his sister (also a vegetarian). They would also like to move there. If you come through Atlanta I can put you up :-) Good luck!

Thanks, Ana. The masks are made of faux fur glued over a plastic wolf mask. Here's a link to the mask:
