The people at the Nantahala Outdoor Center really have a special thing going on up there. We just got back in town from their Guest Appreciation Festival for a long weekend. Along with various kayaking and white water rafting events, there is an array of local and not so local folks that come together to buy sell and trade used gear. It's like a thrift store of only cool shit. We had the opportunity to set up shop amongst them and meet so many rad people. If you missed it this year, mark it on your calendar next September if you're into beautiful sites and beautiful people. Shouts to everyone who won the bean bag toss challenge!
