I tell you what branded,that might not be a bad idea. I got an ex who lives in High Point,NC. I still have some crap that belongs to her that i need to get rid of. Might be a good time to shoot down,drop her cap off to her. Then shoot on down to Charlotte. Will have to look at my work schedule;thats usually pretty set. Get back to you on thadt one. Have travelled past Charlotte on 40 once,not at all familiar with NC.
