    " ...... reach out your hand if your cup be empty,
    if your cup is full may it be again,
    let it be known there is a fountain,
    that was not made by the hands of men.
    If I knew the way, I would take you home."
    "Ripple", Grateful Dead
     

     Thanks, Dasein. Man, Robert Hunter could write a lyric. And the next verse is even more appropriate to this thread:

    THERE IS A ROAD, NO SIMPLE HIGHWAY
    BETWEEN THE DAWN AND THE DARK OF NIGHT
    AND IF YOU GO NO ONE MAY FOLLOW 
    THAT PATH IS FOR YOUR STEPS ALONE

    Hi Fritz,
    You're most welcome, I'm having fun too.
    Looks like over 250 waterfalls here in Transylvania County, means "across the mountains" I've been told.

    I really like they put a Grateful Dead song name "Fire on the Mountain" on the web page!

    Transylvania comes from "beyond the forest", in fact, the original one being the western part of Romania and the home of the fictional Dracula.

    That sign sparked a memory. I checked out Brevard for land one day while living in Greenville. It is a very nice little town, very quaint small town shopping district and main street. Better than most of equivalent size, but at the same time extremely remote.

    I almost bought in Hendersonville. How often do you get down to Greenville? Now you can get there in no time. Those are the pictures I want to see. Your turbo parked on the bridge near the famous Peace bridge over the Falls.

    Enjoy it.

    Hi Carrageous,
    Nice pic!
    Yeah, couldn't he!  Story I heard was they (Dead) were in England (might have been France) and the band (Garcia, et. al.) went out exploring.  Hunter stayed behind in the hotel room with a case of wine, got pretty faced, and wrote most of what became "American Beauty". 
    I lived in Austin, TX what seems like a million years ago.
    13th Floor Elevators played the local music scene back then, late 60s.

    I think we need to start a thread about our favourite music to listen to when driving

     Don,

    Thanks! That's the only pic of my 964, taken on a drive from Texas to California, back when that was a current model and I was better looking, a legendary road trip.

    I heard the same story about writing those songs. Prolific talent, and recently he's published translations of Rilke, so he's broadly accomplished.

    I remember the 13th Floor Elevator but mostly from San Francisco, where I grew up in the Sixties, watching the Dead play on the back of a flatbed truck in the park. For our high school graduation, I organized with Bill Graham's Millard Agency to have the Dead play for our senior prom. The price? $1500, which we had in the class account from car washes. Unfortunately, the principal nixed the idea.

    What a night that would have been, had they shown and had they finished the set!

    One more pic for the road, or the garage.

    Love the illuminated door sills--I have them on my Cayenne Turbo S. An elegant touch, IMHO. Went to camp in Brevard as a kid in the 50's--wonderful times...
