Reviews for Banner Elk Breeze

Becoming One With the Mountain

I was right there on the mountain. Smelling ,hearing,seeing, and feeling the mountain and the woods. Brought back so many memories. And the smells of a mountain man is so true.

 

Great Start to a New Series

This is a great start to a new series. I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to Breeze and Brody…I am glad the author has started on a new series. I hope he hurries with his next book. These are great reads.

 

Long live Breeze

Ed Robinson pulled another great read off as this book will keep you rivited until the end ,I cannot express how happy I am that this book was as good as it is , I was worried that Breeze without a boat wasn’t gonna work but I was wrong . This is one of the best yet .

 

From the FL Gulf to the NC Mountains

From the Florida Gulf to the Mountains of NC, Breeze still rules. His character gets stronger and more defined with each book. While I hated to see Mr Robinson leave the Florida and Caribbean waters, I thoroughly enjoyed how Breeze adapted to new “terrain” without sacrificing the story.

 

Great transition from the Trawler Trash series

I liked the book. I have read the entire Trawler Trash series by Ed Robinson and was curious about his transition to hill billy living. This book didn’t disappoint.

 

A Change of Scenery

I enjoyed Banner Elk Breeze very much. The buildup to the ending was well done. The ending was great. I like Brody. Normally, when the hero has a significant other, she tends to get in the way and interfere with the rhythm of the story, but Brody is okay. The dialogue at the end between Breeze and Brody was perfectly written. I am looking forward the next adventure of Mountain Breeze

 

New location, same awesome characters

Great story, new location but you helped us make the transition too. Breeze and Brody and their adventures are captivating and never disappoint. Well done, looking forward to the next adventure from our new mountain man and his lady.

 

And so on . . . .

Banner Elk Breeze is now Available

 

Breeze escapes his demons in Florida by moving to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. He and Brody are settling into their new life when he stumbles onto a plot of marijuana plants on public land. Knowing a thing or two about growing weed, Breeze befriends the mysterious mountain man tending to the crop.

When his new friend is killed, he tries to help law enforcement solve the crime. When the authorities prove reluctant, he is forced to take matters into his own hands. In the process, he transforms from boat bum to a true man of the mountains.

Cabin Crafts

We were in Lowe’s in Banner Elk and stumbled onto a deal on lawn and garden stakes. They were selling 24 pointed stakes for $2.99 to make way for winter and seasonal goods. We bought all they had!

We fiddled around with a few different ideas then dug into constructing, staining, and painting a few projects.

Below was our first effort, a Betsy Ross flag:

Then we threw together this little rustic star:

I decided I needed a kindling box:

Then Kim decided she wanted a boot tray:

That’s it so far, but we figure a long, cold winter will spur us to new projects. Still have plenty of those stakes left. I’m thinking a Christmas Tree.

Any other ideas on how we can use these to make cool stuff?

 

 

One Month in the Mountains

We left our boat and the liveaboard life and moved into a log cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains on August 1, 2018. What a transition! We left the beaches to live near Beech Mountain, (and Sugar Mountain, and Grandfather Mountain, etc.) Our cozy little cabin in on McGuire Mountain Road, high above the lovely little town of Banner Elk, North Carolina.

We’ve been busy getting our new home in order and adapting to our new lifestyle. I’ve been splitting and stacking wood in preparation for winter. Kim has been crafting and cooking in a real kitchen. Although we thoroughly enjoyed our time living on a boat in Florida, I have to say we are now Living Large in a real house.

We’ve explored nearby waterfalls and done a little hiking. Still trying to get our mountain legs.

The weather has been outstanding. I think the highest temperature we’ve seen is 80 degrees, but mostly it tops out in the mid to upper 70’s, in August. Nights see low 60’s or upper 50’s. We’ve been sleeping with the windows open. The sound of the creek helps put us to sleep.

The air and water are so much cleaner than in Florida. The humidity is not an issue, although we’ve gotten light rains fairly often. We feel better physically and mentally. No stress!

Now we realize that winter will be a challenge for us thin-blooded Floridians. Check back with us in January.
