Moving to Asheville, NC

Retired in July and moving from Tampa to Asheville this weekend. Currently waiting for a moving truck to collect my SLC (in progress) and my cobra. Any builders close to Asheville?

They’re called Halfbacks. Move to FL from the northeast and realized it’s too hot/crowded so move halfway back��

There are some awesome roads to drive an SLC up there. We tour the area frequently and soon with my SLC.

Enjoy the “golden years”.........

Re: Moving to Asheville, NC

Thanks guys.

I’m originally from Ireland, and 20 years in the heat (and flat roads) of Florida was enough for me. Looking forward to the change of seasons, and driving around the mountains - although with the rain and cold in NC already, may wait for spring!!!

ust FYI, for anyone moving cars around the southeast, I had a really good experience with Atlas van lines. The dedicated an 18 wheeler for my cobra and SLC at a reasonable cost, loaded and unloaded the cars using a tow truck and wrapped both cars in mover blankets. Most of the guys involved on both ends were car guys, and took great care to make sure there was no damage anywhere.

You'll be fine in Asheville then and won't be called a Floridiot, welcome! Western NC is fantastic and Asheville a great place to live. Enjoy!
