Amy's family happens to have a little house/stable near Blowing Rock so this is where I spent my weekend. Here is photo of one of the horses Froggy and although the photo does not show it, we slept in a little loft above three very quiet horses! Its nice to have a free place to stay in such a beautiful settings.
Amy and Laurel where real troopers with helping me get this whole thing set up. This is the second year they have helped me out. Hopefully we can make this an annual event since we all live up and down the East Coast now. These friends of mine have alot of funny memories about that first Blowing Rock they experienced with me when I was on a incline and was not a happy camper! The whole set up was held together with Bungee-cords and they managed to calm me down every time my racks looked like they where about the tumble over. No one actually knows what its like to haul tents, deal with bad weather and packing and unpacking a truck and they love to tell anyone who walks into my booth how hard it is to be a potter! ( In a joking manner that is....)
