We went through North Carolina yesterday; the weather is definitely getting warmer; I retired my winter jacket. We try to make at least one stop at a rest area or welcome center, because they have the best coffee machines, with the flavored coffees! After we reached our camp for the night, we visited the Airborne Special Operations Museum in Fayetteville. It had interactive exhibits from WWII through all the wars that the Airborne have been involved in up to the current day. After a while, it was overwhelming. We have been involved in something almost steadily since WWII. It was very interesting, though, and filled with life-sized mannequins in uniform. I kept thinking someone was standing as a guide in the areas I went through! P1080108

Many Canadians come south to get away from their winter; the Canadian flag flies in lots of the campgrounds.

Saw this traveling, one man church van in one of the rest stops. Having read all the signs on the car, I would not suggest joining that particular church.

That's all for today; it's getting late and I need to read!

Love Hare

Never knew those boots existed either. (I think I do see you in the PW pic; it's a little blurry).....
