Hey, If anyone is traveling to N.C. coast through S.C. and coming up 17 or 501, be very, very careful and expect delays. They are having wicked wildfires in North Myrtle Beach, and are doing a fairly massive evacuation of homes and such. Be safe, be smart, and be responsible. We eat bad tourists for breakfast. .... well, actually, we eat grits, biscuits and gravy, but we'll take a tourist or two as well! lol

No problem....50 homes destroyed in SC so far that I know of. I work for 911, and some of our helicopters have actually headed down as well to assist
