Naw..
About the time you got to Greensboro you would be wondering what you are doing. It is in Sandflea area you know. You might find the terrain too foreign to enjoy.

I guess someone is waiting for me to grab this one? I thought one of the soldier folk would have moved it.

I'm busier than a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest this week. Hell, I just got home from work at 2130. It is completely safe from me.

Grab.

Beautiful spot. Abandoned 401 bridge over Lumber River in Lumber River State Park, East of Wagram, NC.

Luni and I should be embarrassed that we let this one pass, but I'm glad to see someone make the trek to get it.

Was looking at making the trip to get it, but figured there were too many closer folks. Even figured the Charlotte folks were looking at it.

I was going to get up early and go grab it... but staying up past 2am doesn't help (once I start watching Saving Private Ryan, I have to watch it till the end).

I had plenty of chances to go get it but the best I could do would be another local move. Figured if it sat long enough someone would come down and carry it off.

This one didn't move down the road too far,
one county over near a town named after a guitar.
Look at the name below before you whine,
those headstones rest along the state line.
Heading North on a road named for the offspring of Pear,
you could arrive (legally) with the wind in your hair.
It stands out plainly on Google Maps,
Bing will just roll you a snake eyes for craps.
