Welcome to Mayberry

Got bored yesterday, si i decided id clean the truck up and take some pics.I

f ya'll dont know, I live in Mayberry--The REAL Mayberry. You know....Andy Griffith, Barney Fife, Opie, Aunt Bea!? However the show was really filmed in Beverly Hills but the fictional town of Mayberry is based on Mount Airy, NC-Where I live. If you have ever watched the show, you have heard of places like Mount Pilot, floyd's Barber Shop, Snappy Lunch, Wally's Service Station...well we have them all. Of course Andy doesnt live here any more, he moved to Manteo a while ago.

Anyhow I have been wanting to get some pics of the truck by Wally's Service Station for a while now, but never could get the truck cleaned up in time before dark, so yesterday i skipped the gym, went and cleaned her up and took some pics. This is not open, its just really a tourist attraction for pics...lol I am going to update this thread with some more pics from Mayberry when I can get them.

The sun was not workling for me, but the sky in the background was, it looked awesome!

Andy Taylor, not to pick at nits...

I used to drive through Mt. Airy quite often on my way home when I was living on the Crystal Coast. It was my 'halfway point', too, so I'd always stop for a stretch/refuel/hot dogs.

Was just up there a bit ago as I took the Blue Ridge Parkway back from Roanoke and hopped off in Fancy Gap, then headed down through Mt. Airy.
