WNC club/swap meet?

I don't know if I'm stuck up here in the mountains alone, but would like to start a local club/swap meet. Do you live in wnc or local states?(S.C.,TENN,N.C.)
If this sounds like a good ideal, please, post here or send me a p.m.
Thanks for your time.

I live in the triad, about 160 miles from Asheville. Wouldn't make it a regular thing but would be able to make it a part of a trip when the weather cools off a bit. I'd probably make a 2 day trip and enjoy the scenery. Are there any cheap camp grounds for tenting nearby?

Aquamoon and TTKarl

I am also in the asheville area. Just starting out with the planted tank so not much to trade for swap meets but good to know others are around.

Hiya everyone,

I'm also an asheville local. Don't acctually have a tank to speak of at the moment but I'm working on that part. It really is nice to know that there are people around here that like this kinda stuff too. Maybe a meet-n-chat may be in order at some point for what few of us there are.

I am about and hour and a half out but I might be in if there is enough interest. I wouldn't be a regular thing by any means with gas at $3 a gallon.

I am opening an LFS in Black Mountain, just 6 miles from the old "Everything Fishy" store location in Asheville. I plan on carrying a lot of aquatic plants, please let me know what you'd like to see in my (soon to open) store. I'd also be open to having some swaps at my location if that would be convenient for anyone.
