Home for 6 nites - not fancy but good location & the...

We got a fairly early start (9:20) considering that we were only going 109 miles. Rain was forecast for later today & the Sprint Cup race was postponed yesterday & was being run & broadcast around noon today so we wanted to get to Charlotte & get setup. We ran into a couple of rain showers on our way but nothing heavy.

We were all set up in time to watch the race & the rain didn't start until about 4:00. We've had some heavy rain but it comes & goes.

We stopped at a NC Welcome Center shortly after we entered the state & they had lots of information on the racing related things to see & do. Now we've got to decide what we're going to do & when. Lots more later...
