Hiya, good to have your input in the comic lover's group. I'm in NYC, but my bro lives near you, Hendersonville, and works at a Wells Fargo branch in Asheville. He's been pretty into MW2, Lvl 43 last I looked; gotta tell him to check where he is on the NC rankings.
Of course!!! If you are coming up 221 from Marion you pass Grandfather Mountain. I can't remember the road name but you make a left across from a McDonalds/gas station. There is also a small shopping center in that area with an ABC store a little further up 221 on the right. Isn't it the turn that takes you to Lees MaCrae (sp)?
You have no idea how upset I was with all of the receivers in that game. They were dropping passes left and right. And, alright, let's put that to the test. I live in a town called Spruce Pine. Heard of it?
I graduated from ASU back in 1999. Loved it and I am glad that we have secured 3 national titles. Where exactly between Boone and Asheville? I know you've said that no one else would know but I bet you some bragging rights that I know where it is.
