This is an older motel being renovated that the frugal-minded stay at. It's neither far nor close to downtown. There really isn't anything near it other than other motels, so I imagine it's a travel stop over place.
The staff was really nice and went out of their way to accomodate us. We got to the motel after rush hour and were travel tired, but had a lot to take care of before we could find a sports bar to watch one of the March Madness basketball games. The staff checked us in very quickly and made sure everything was satisfactory. At that point, it was.
The room was nice. It had a king-size bed and a sofa, which was a pleasant change. Usually you get a chair to sit in and argue over who gets to sit in it. So having a sofa was a great improvement. There was also a flat screen television, which kinda of worked. It had just been installed and the cable person hadn't had a chance to configure it yet. So if you know anything about television signals, which I did not, it could only be operated like the old fashioned tv antenna signals. Since the television wasn't configured, you had to manually change channels and wait to see whichever channel the antenna had found. Not horrible but a little inconvenient. We finally found the game we wanted to watch on Sunday night so it worked out alright.
In follow-up to the staff being so nice and accomodating, when we pointed out the problem with the television -- and mind you it wasn't because we were annoyed, we actually thought we were doing something incorrectly -- they offered to move us to another room. The tv in the other room hadn't been configured either, and by then I had unpacked all our suitcases, so it wasn't worth the trouble of packing and moving. It was nice to see the staff being so pleasant.
There was a continental breakfast offered at the motel. It was a little disappointing, as it was a carb-lovers delight. I find it interesting that whenever you are looking for a hotel/motel, the breakfast they define to you on the website sounds to good to be true -- and it usually is. I supposed we shouldn't have been disappointed because that is what we are used to. Just once I would like to see fresh fruit.
I guess you could make the argument that you get what you pay for, but I think that is an excuse. I am sure that somewhere out there my H and I will find an inexpensive place to stay when we're traveling that offers fruit, eggs and bacon. That will be the fun on our next adventure -- to see if we can find one.

Well after frantically getting the house in order, working an extra day at work, we finally are at the airport. Only to realize that I forgot my camera! Then the plane is delayed to fix the A/C. They finally announce that it will be an hour at least before boarding. So Dan ran home to get the camera. Thank heavens! Even small miracles are wonderful!
... time for filming the show. These cameras were similar to the ones we had been using, though they had some higher definition lenses. Okay, I can get used to it, until showtime when we had no way of knowing who was live and who wasn't (usually the live camera has a red light that displays signifying your camera is live) and our returns (which show which camera is in use at the time) were not working. This made for a fun and ...
Airport in CLT is uneventful. Marinn has brief call on someone asking her to be the axo chapter advisor for a startup chapter at UNCC. The we board on first class seats on flit 852. A few drinks and we notice the guys sitting one row up with a sloppy dress, little goatee, silver metallic painted toe nails and a purple toboggan hat, singing and propping his ipad with some presentation on technology on the wall for all to see. ...
... enjoy the amazing view. The weather was not permissive, and we didn't even bother to get out of the car. Funnily, Mark was there twenty years ago and had rain then as well although not as much. He climbed the tower then, but didn't have a great view. Given the beautiful weather yesterday, he had hoped that this time would be better, but it ...
We stayed for a week at Cross Country Campground outside of Denver, TN, near Lake Norman. The park is mainly made up of permanent camp sites and the perimeter was for short stays. We were able to pick out a nice shady spot that was in the back 40, so we had several sites to ourselves for most of the time. We got both a picnic table and a fire ring so we're ...
