Field Trip


A few months ago our friend Gail introduced us to BBQ from Short Sugar’s, and today we made the drive from the campground up to Reidsville, NC. It was well worth the drive. Service was fast and friendly – the food was delicious and well priced. You can buy pork skins by the bag to-go. In fact their entire menu is available for carry out.

I bought 3 bags of fresh from the fryer pork skins. They are nothing like bagged pork rinds you buy at the store. There is no off-putting smell – just crisp salty goodness that melts in your mouth.

If you are any where near Reidsville, NC you owe it to yourself to get to Short Sugar’s.I am hoping we can get back there once more before we leave NC to stock up on pork skins. =)



Yesterday we left Chapel Hill and headed East. We stopped and visited with dear friends in Elizabeth City and then today we motored onto the campground. Today was quiet. Windows were opened, dogs were snuggled and nothing was done with great vigor. Naps were had. Frolicking took place.

We’ll be attending the star party and hope to get a good view of the Solar Eclipse.

Today was a good day.

So the next few weeks are going to be a little hectic but a lot of fun.

Sunday we are heading up to VA to visit friends in the Winchester area.

Monday … to DC and (crossing toes) to the Smithsonian and dinner with friends – and try to swing through Stafford.

Tuesday – drive back home

Wednesday – pick up Vicious at the airport

Thursday – Friday – visit with Vicious and some other ASCFers

Saturday – Duke Lemur Center and possibly the hockey game

Sunday – back to the airport

Monday – try to squeeze in a nap

Tuesday – volunteer orientation at shelter

Wednesday – doctor appt, where I hope to get some tests set up on my knees – they are STILL giving me issue after the fall (2 months ago)

Thursday thru Sat – clean, and study for placement exams … which I know is corny but I really don’t want to have to pay for extra classes that I don’t get credit for … so I am hoping I can test out of it.

Sunday thru Tues – OBX

Then catch some rest … but then it REALLY starts for LK – he has training and has to work 10 days with one day off. BLEH.
