Checking Out Tuner Evolution in Charlotte, North Carolina

We took a little road trip to Charlotte, North Carolina to snap a few photos of the cars at Tuner Evolution. The Park Expo Center was crazy hot and we were sweating our butts off. The show was much smaller than we expected but the quality of the cars was excellent which made up for all the other issues. We would rate the Tuner Evolution Charlotte show as good but not great.

A Quick Drive Through Biltmore Sunflowers

The sunflowers are blooming!  The drive to Antler Hill Village at Biltmore Estate is lined with sunflowers in July.  A bike path makes it easy for you to get out and safely enjoy the view of thousands of sunflowers.

Apple Valley Model Railroad Club Open House

It has been 25 years since the Apple Valley Model Railroad Club set up shop in the Historic 1902 Southern Railway Railroad Depot in Hendersonville, NC. We took the opportunity to visit with them during their recent open house. They run a very nice HO layout inside as well as a large scale garden layout outside at the train station.

Our Journey with Dorothy to the Land of Oz

We're off to see the Wizard! A road trip to Beech Mountain, NC. The Beech Mountain Resort is home to the former Land of OZ amusement park. Our visit was 47 years and 1 day since the park originally opened on June 15, 1970. The amusement park closed at the end of 1980. By 1985, the Emerald City was demolished. Sadly there isn't much left to see but with some imagination you can make the Land of Oz live again!

22nd Annual Ole Smoky Spring Farm Fest
