Unfortunately the Asheville plague is spreading to all the surrounding counties. It gets worse every year, I’ve worked on both ends of Lexington Ave over a period of years and the decline is stunning.

Just like all the other liberal run cities across the country. Over run with homeless, fentanyl and crime.

It is a shame, when I was a kid Asheville was an amazing place to visit and shop and eat. Now many people myself included actively avoid going to or spending any money in Buncombe county.

Liberal city government that is afraid to say no to the fringe groups.  That's why I'm running for City Council.  I hate that is FaceBooger, but that's been the best way for me to spread the word.

Mom just moved to Madison county, and so far it seems unaffected. We too used to spend a lot of time there, and I went to WCU over in Cullowhee a few decades ago, but now I refuse to stop and visit.

Wife and kids were up in WNC Easter weekend visiting our families. They rode through Asheville at one point. My 8 year old was going: "I see more homeless.  There's another homeless guy over there.  There a homeless over that bench."

I’m a couple hours east of Asheville, but if something gets set up I will do my best to make it.

I owe you a handshake or 10 and a dinner.

I don’t go to Asheville unless I absolutely have to. I tend to stay in Hendersonville.

We used too years ago. Around 2003 or 04 was the last one I went to.
If a shoot is arranged, I’ll go if I can.

One easy way to get out in Asheville and see down town with less filth is to go in the AM. Once in a while the wife and I drop the kids at school and head down town for breakfast. There’s no one out then.

Born and raised in Hendersonville and Asheville wasn't bad a long time ago. Liberals ruined it like everything else. I work off sweeten creek and just pack my lunch every day so I don't have to bring a part of all that mess.

For however long it lasts downtown Greenville is worth the extra hour drive.   I used to spend way more time in Asheville since I live at the state line.  Now I don’t even bother with Asheville aside from Bold Rock and Sierra Nevada occasionally.  It’s a shame what liberals have done with their broken policies

I try to not go north of Biltmore. There is absolutely nothing downtown worth the hassle anymore.

If you ever make it this way again definitely make a trip to Greenville.   Dinners on me if you do.  We all appreciate the work you do.

You guys have me worried now, I'm heading to Asheville next week for a long weekend with the wife.  We had heard so many good things about the place but maybe those experiences were years ago.

Guess that is why I have a carry gun....

   I would not worry about things.
I would avoid downtown unless you want to have people ask you for money ever 10 steps.  It used to have a lot of cool restaurants etc but I don’t care for the ultra woke BS.

   If you’re a beer drinker hit this year Nevada brewery or the bold rock cider place.  There’s a ton of others I just haven’t had time to visit everything myself.
 Hendersonville has a nice little downtown and so does Brevard.   As much as I talk shit about Asheville I still love the surrounding areas.

Went to a specialist vet in Asheville. Went to get in my truck to leave and saw this.






Had to take a pic to remind myself of why I don't frequent that area around downtown.

What you can't see was the nail polish.

Open offer
My wife is leaving me at home while she does her yearly girls trip to the beach.  Of course this year she left me with a 12 month old puppy still not quite potty trained.
So damn sweet though
On another note I think I may go by a Corvette while she’s gone. She’s expecting me to so I wouldn’t need a legal referral unless I go new

I was there in April for a long weekend with the wife, stayed at The Foundry hotel and walked to shops/restaurants/breweries. We had a great time and didn't get hassled at all by any vagrants, maybe they were not around since it was unseasonably cold that weekend?
