I had just been down to North Carolina five weeks ago, but I had to return to the state last week. It was under very sad conditions.
On the way down, on June 13, we stopped at Englewood, Ohio, for my Cincinnati Chili fix at Skyline Chili. We then drove through Columbus and got a room at the Comfort Inn and went to Thirsty Turtle where we watched the NBA Championship game which Cleveland won to get to 2-3 in the best-of-seven series. Being in Ohio, the crowd was quite into pulling for the Cavaliers.
The next day we got gas at Wytheville, Virginia was $2.04. by far the best price on the trip. Stopped near Clayton, N.C. at the White Swan and had their bbq. Mighty good. Love my Carolina 'cue, especially Eastern-style.
Checked into the Best Western Plus in Goldsboro, North Carolina.
