1. I wish I could be there.

I have a part time home in Harnett County, but reside in Utah. My SO is headed back to NC on the 31st, but I have commitments to keep me here through early May.

Our plan is for him go fly home early May, and then head back east with my two sisters in our 5th Wheel. They want to visit Loretta Lynn's homestead (exit 143, Waverley exit, off I-40). I know it well as we have traveled this route many times. Then head to Coats, North Carolina, which is where we bought our property after we retired. It is next to my SO's parents, which makes it nice for him, since he moved away the late 60's and has lived away most of the last 40+ years.

4. I'm still drawing a blank. I'll see if anybody at the MLK Parade tomorrow knows anything.

The Triangle is sending dozens of buses to DC, so there may be less interest in local watches than there was in 09, especially since we lost NC this time around
