... to like $360 (!!) the other day, so I was pretty mad about that. But oh well! I will be flying out of Charlotte, which is 1.5 hours away, so I will have to get up really early tomorrow, like 3:30am! I might as well pull an all nighter.
Now off to pack my beach clothes and scuba gears, and make sure I don't have anything that will spoil in my house!
... Nascar Hall of Fame, and Charlotte motor speedway. Actually, it was Bec's idea to do the drive in 2 shifts and have a day in Charlotte, so I have to thank her for thinking outside the box on that one.
We managed to split the driving pretty much 50/50 today so we are both a little road weary. No photos either. Photo's of being between 2 semi trailers on the interstate don't make for good viewing. I can assure you that tomorrows photos will make up for the lack of shots today.

I finished off the ride with Annie and Taylor after some games of "would you rather" to pass the time and then we snagged some donations at a gas station on our way to the host. Dinner and showers were incredible tonight. Another 80-some miles into Charlotte ...

Thursday night, took Mom and Aunt Alice to dinner at our favorite BarBQ restaurant, Richard's, in Salisbury. The ladies love Rummikub, so our evening ended with 2 1/2 hours of the game. Luckily, I managed to win one game. They are SO competitive! Up early Saturday morning to leave for South Haven.
