A Visit from the Smileys

  • Moderators

In late August, the hurricane winds blew a couple visitors our way in North Carolina. Bugeye (Pete) and Oscar the Smiley Dog, along with their happy face Oliver, came to the mountains and braved 7.5 inches of rain in 48 hours with us. We had so much fun! Considering, we helped Pete unhitch and set up in a cats n dogs downpour, and spent much of the night in the same... We had a lot of fun conversation, and a great time getting to know them both. On the day Pete & Oscar left, we had a little sun and played tourists... we hiked the property, looked for (and found) bear track, and took a ride down to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure and had lunch. Sadly, we had to say goodbye in the afternoon, as Pete had commitments up the BlueRidge with some old friends.

Here's a view from our hike, from about 3000 feet or so, a third of the way up the mountain.... two Olivers at base camp (2800 feet) August2008CarolinasTN004.jpg Pete & Oscar the Smiley Dog August2008CarolinasTN011.jpg Pete pulling his Oliver up the gravel road, through the tree canopy August2008CarolinasTN016.jpg And our last view of Pete, Oscar the Smiley Dog, and the Happy Face Wonder Egg as they left the property in the afternoon....August2008CarolinasTN017.jpg Just talked to Pete, and he and Oscar are in New Mexico, somewhere, on their way to Colorado. Happy travels! and hope to see you again soon.... and hope for better weather the next time you come to boondock with us in NC!
