Fawnskin’s Revitalization Program

downtown fawnskin

So, we stopped by to see what Dale and the gang were up to today in downtown Fawnskin. Don’t ‘cha just love that GG can share these breaking news photos with you?

Seriously, what would you do without me?

Insulation is going in today and a new roof is next.

We are hoping this is a sign that Fawnskin is having a resurgence and will be the beginning of a downtown revitalization program.

You know, like the real towns have in other locations around the state.

Now if you are a resident of Fawnskin, you know that although some businesses are up and running and looking mighty good, we have a few businesses on the main drag that are looking pretty poorly and several buildings that are condemned or that have been prevented from updating for one reason or another.

But a whole lot of us don’t have business frontage on the main drag…call it “cabin” industry but there are more businesses in the hills than on the strip.

A lot of folks forget that or simply ignore that fact.

Tsk, tsk.

Now people around these parts love Fawnskin and the mountains but I still find it funny that my pals camp up at Hanna Flat.

But even more interesting is that Snoop Sister Deb is getting ready to camp out herself.

GG got to experiment with tent set up–which has come a long way since those vintage canvas tents that were such a pain to erect.

In fact, I used to just take my bag and sleep under the stars instead of messing with the things…but then mosquitoes like me too much so I stopped that nonsense.

How about you–do you go camping around here or in other locations?

Personally, I like a good bed instead of roughing it but my favorite place to camp is near the beach not in the mountains.

I’ll be enjoying the beach soon–so when I disappear for a while don’t panic.

In the meantime, I don’t have anything else to share except that a lot of Fawnskin Folks were at the Discovery Center on Saturday night kicking up their heels.

Seriously, you people have got to keep GG in the know and give me the dirt in advance so I can snap photos and make up some good stories about you!

In lieu of that, leave yer comments below…

    So where is this construction located? A business? – a home? – can’t quite figure it out.

    Thanks –
