Moving from Durango to Asheville

I know this is a predominantly western site, but I was wondering if anyone has some input on Asheville. I am moving Aug. 1st, and was just wondering if someone could give me some beta (cost of living, night life, etc) in Asheville.

Used to live 70 miles west in Bryson City. Asheville is cool, you're a lucky dog. There is a lot of fun and culture for a city that size in that part of the country. It's kinda like an eastern, quasi-redneck Boulder, but only right in Asheville. The water is off the hook, you'll love it. Oh, did I mention that the water is actually warm there? Bastards.

Do you know Chris Houston, AKA Shagg? He lived in Durango just the past 3 or so years and just moved back to Ashville. If you are looking to hook up and paddle, try to find him there.

He is a c-1 boater that rips and is a top notch human being.

Asheville rocks the party. If you have to live east of the Miss and south of the Mason/Dixon, it's the ONLY place to be.

Kiss good skiing/riding bye bye, bro. The only downside.

If you like creeking, you are gonna be stoked. The green runs every day, and you can go a big a you want 3x. I do miss the Colorado high country, but we paddle all the time with the best in the world. Give me a call when you get to town. John Boone (704)906-1783 in Montford

Thanks everyone, I am feeling good about the move. Corinne, I will give you a call... it always helps to have some people to go boating with (if they dont mind stepping down a notch and running class III-IV stuff). Once again, thanks
