Photos from the Sugarloaf Mountain Region AACA Swap Meet

We braved the bitter cold and snow squalls to do some shopping at the Sugarloaf Mountain Region AACA Swap Meet. Held at the Carroll County Agriculture Center, this swap meet is now in its 45th year.

Inside the Ag Center it was nice and warm. The center is large enough to allow the vendors to spread out a bit. This is great for you as you don't need to elbow your way in to see what's for sale in most of the spaces.

If you were hungry, the Sugarloaf Mountain Region members were waiting with smiling faces to serve you up some grub all day.

There were vintage items at many of the vendor spots if that was what you were looking for.

There were a few cars in the car corral but nothing really impressive. At least they were inside where it was warm.

There were only a couple of brave souls outside selling items. You had to seriously be hardcore to hand around out there with the wind howling and the snow swirling.

The Sugarloaf Mountain Region AACA swap meet may not be anything grand but it is a nice way to spend a couple of hours. The people are friendly and admission is free. Check it out if you aren't busy when it comes around again.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.


Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
