Going, Going, Gonna Be Gone!!

Hello everyone!!

Here is a lovely pic of the Jim Baugh residence for the past 11 years, well, for three I have lived on a boat. But now that my sweetheart daughter is off to college, the beast of a house is on the market. This is where I built a super TV studio as an addition to the house, back before lap top editors became the norm, we used to have to house a lot of equipment.

She has been an awesome home, three acres in the Salisbury area in Midlothian with a huge Salisbury Lake view, just wonderful. Big Florida room and back deck the size of Kansas. This 4500 sf contemporary has the most beautiful hard wood floors you have seen throughout the entire first floor. Single plank wide masterfully shellacked hard wood, a must see. The floors, three acres and lake view is what sold me on this house in the first place.In case you have not guessed, I have been doing yard work for about 38 years, no more!! It is condo by the beach for Jim!! That is it. I will set up a permanent studio in Hampton Virginia, and of course still base out of the downtown Hampton area.

If anyone is lookin to buy in the Midlothian area, give me a buzz, we have been getting tons of calls and already have had a ton of showings. There will be an add in the Richmond Times Dispatch Sunday April 2, so for those of you who are lookin to get on the lake in Salisbury, here is your chance. I moved to Midlothian some 11 years ago not only because it is a fantastic area, but it also has about the best school system in the state of Virginia. Now with the completion of 288, you can be in the west end in only about 15 minutes, and we are only about 10 minutes from Chipenham Pkwy. Just super access. Please buy!!! I already have three condos with my name on it!! LOL .Have fun everyone, another beautiful weekend in Hampton this weekend, getting the boats ready for another fantastic season!

JBO Show Vette at Vetts at Waterside Sixth Annual Show

Hello everyone!
I just got back from one exciting show at Waterside, the sixth annual Vetts at Waterside featured over 120 awesome Corvettes. The Jim Baugh Outdoors 1996 C4 show car was car #107 and we were displayed on the waterfront side near the water taxi. The turn out was very good and there was of course plenty of Vette enthusiast. It was great to meet some fans of our show during the event, we had a lot of folks stop by our car booth.

We had just in time for this show installed the new factory leather interior for the c4. The job really turned out fantastic and was our last major job for this restoration. The show vette is ready for it's next Key West tour commin up in May.
The only bad thing about this show was that I was trying to recover from the worst flu I have ever had. Don't think old JB has been sick in over two years, but boy did I play catch up this week, it has truly been a real bear. So with help of another thousand milligrams of vit C, I think I will be cured in a couple more days!! Thank the Lord.

Next show for the JBO Vette will be the Hampton Annual Corvette Club Show. We will update as to the dates soon. Back to editing, Jim Baugh Outdoors starts it's 2007 annual broadcast April 1st, our 18th year of broadcasting. No wonder I am tired!

Hampton Boat Show

It was good to see Doug Whalen at the Whalens\ Suzuki booth at this years Tidewater Boat Show in Hampton Virginia along with Terry Chones regional director for Suzuki Marine. The show was held at the Hampton Roads Convention Center and was set up just beautifully, great show. There is so much light in that building the boats really showed well. This is an annual show and one you don't want to miss! The center is located directly across the street from the Bass Pro Shops in Hampton Virginia as well as the Hampton Coliseum. Next up Jim Baugh Outdoors will be appearing at the Downtown Hampton in-water boat show and will be hosting a cooking seminar May 5th along the downtown Hampton waterfront. We will be cooking on board the Hampton\Suzuki show boat with the twin Suzuki 250 HP. For more information log on to the Hampton Public Piers web site. See ya then!!!
