Running into the traffic backup that far west of the airport did not bode well for my travel through the Raleigh-Durham Horror, as I call it. That traffic is just horrible during rush hour. Sure glad I don't have to do it but six times a year coming and going. I'd hate to have to do it every day.
But, after a several minute slow-down, it opened up and other than a few slow-downs, went extremely well. I got very lucky.
Caught the US-70 Clayton bypass and on my way to Goldsboro. Stopped at J-R's by I-95 and took a look around. I actually thought I was going to get out without buying anything until I went into the Christmas, yes Christmas, section and just had to buy some ornaments.
Stopped at the Wal-Mart west of Goldsboro and stocked up on my two liter bottles of Diet Cheerwine.
I finally got to Goldsboro after driving 533.8 miles today and 1,026 since leaving yesterday.
