NEAR WILSON, N.C. — Driving down Interstate 95 south of Washington D.C. and especially Richmond, Va. isn’t the most scenic ride.* The land is generally flat, the road barely curves, every interchange looks the same and there are no sizable towns. I was not relishing the North Carolina portion of our drive to the South [...]
“Where are you taking yours too?”
WILSON, N.C. — That’s a brief conversation I had with someone as my family paid for lunch and several pounds of take-out at Parker’s Barbecue. The restaurant has a cult following up and down the I-95 corridor; I’ve already blogged about it previously, but figured it was worth [...]
PAWLEY’S ISLAND, S.C. — When I saw the sign claiming that Sam’s Corner was world famous for its hot dogs, I figured it was worth investigating. Now, I had not heard of it, but I figured I would have to see if it was worth while.
My dad and I went there after a day on [...]
PAWLEY’S ISLAND, S.C. — Since I enjoy many aspects of transportation, I appreciate that there is a market tchotchkes, stickers, t-shirts, etc. based on highway signs. However, since I enjoy many aspects of transportation, I don’t like it when the wrong sign is used. Take for example the Route 17 sign below:
There are several issues [...]
I used the same criteria as previous years — I have to had a meal or spent the night there. Fast food does not count either.

KENLY, N.C. — We were not feeling as adventurous on the way back north as we had been on the way down, so we didn’t stray far from I-95 for our final meal of the drive. Moore’s barbecue, located next to the exit 107, gave us the convince we wanted, but would it deliver [...]
CONWAY, S.C. — Not long after visiting Coast Carolina University, we needed to make a pit-stop. Since I was a little hungry and certainly curious, we stopped at a Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n’ Biscuits, known for . Not needing a full meal, I ordered a two-piece and biscuit combination, ($2.18), for us to split.
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Since we only had a few hours to explore Myrtle Beach, we wound up choosing fast food for lunch. Having never been to a SONIC, we figured we would give yet another regional fast food chain a try. I hadn’t planned on making visiting fast food places a theme, but [...]
CONWAY, S.C. — Penn State’s first opponent of the 2008 football season is the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers. It just so happened that our drive down to see Aunt Janet took us right past Brooks Stadium, home of CCU football. After our visit this past weekend, we stopped by the campus to take photos.
The campus [...]
