View Full Version : Just moved to the Triad (Piedmont) area

October 28th, 2008, 10:58 PM

The family and I just moved from Houston to Greensboro in September, managing to just barely avoid hurricanes Gustav and Ike, and only getting rained on from Hannah. We hope to meet some members at an activity soon.

We're loving the cooler weather, trees, and the twisties!

Welcome, enjoy the Triad and the THMMC.
If you are in Greensboro, don't miss Giacomo's Italian Market (2 locations), The Fresh Market, Grassroots Garage in Thomasville for your MINI, NC Barbeque in Lexington (no beef), Furniture shopping in High Point, and the MINI gathering on Monday Night at Indigo's in Kernersville.

Thanks, looking forward to meeting everyone! We went to Lexington for the BBQ festival this past weekend, but wished we could have made it to the Dragon. Hopefully next time at Indigo's - that's only a few miles from home. I'm sure I'll be at Grassroots Garage soon too, for some regular maintenance (and possibly water pump/super charger work).

Greetings and welcome. This group has members far and wide. There are a number of us in SW Virginia (about 2 hrs away). We try to join in as often as we can. Be sure to plan for the BRP tour next summer. It's a blast.

You will find the BBQ a bit different than TX :-)
I moved to Raleigh from Marshal 7 years ago and really enjoy it here....

Yes, the BBQ is definitely different here, but I like it. I was told by someone who had moved to Texas from the Carolinas that Texas BBQ was fine, except it used the wrong animal!

I'm only 31 miles from the Virginia border, so I'll have to drive on up soon. I'd like to try snow skiing for the first time this year.

NC Ski Country is a short drive from Greensboro, I-40 West to Hwy. 421 North, two hour drive.

I recommend you try to schedule your first experience in the middle of the week after a real snow. Man made snow can sometimes be a lesser experience. I am sure others will give you plenty of advice. My understanding the best skiing nearest you is in WV.

I finally did it - adopted another MINI. 2011 MCS Countryman, Chili Red all over with UJ mirror caps and black bonnet stripes. I stopped by quite a bit late to Flow MINI for the chicken stew (wow, that was good!), and got to hang out for a bit. Hope to see you all again on the 9th!
