Well I aint familiar with all them aforementioned exotic locations. Glad yall are pals. I had a pal but he died back in 56. It was a real sad old deal. It sort of a two headed coin in that I dont have to drive far on most occasions even for funerals but then I don't have many places to go either. Works out about equal I think. In the car bidness they say it's a wash. I dont like long trips or freeways. I usually just go to the beer joint..close one eye and drive home. That works too.

yep bigwheel, that about describes me. I hate traveling, but did
this for a friend.....Bill bought a generator that was located
just south of Georgetown, so I went and picked it up for him.
We met in Lumberton at Fuller's BBQ. He bought lunch and
we loaded him up with his new generator.

If I was gonna drive a few hours for bbq, it'd be way up
further into NC, where the legend joints are. Hope to have
the time, money, and inclination to do that one day.

5 bucks for a pound of q...wow.

It's a buffet setting. The guy apparently cooks over oak in
a homemade pit in Elizabeth city, then trucks the meat
over to Lumberton.

I have a cold, so it was hard to really taste it. The meat
was minced, buffet minced means dry, not horrible.
I got the sandwich with slaw, which added moisture.
His sauce tastes like watered down Texas Pete.
They got the buffet...the ribs looked awful.

It's more of a buffet place than a bbq hot spot.

Yeppers..I gonna reitire and take a gander at that part o the world one day myself. I was wanting to do it in a MH but that 4 buck a gallon gas sorta skeered me off from that idear. Sure Prez Osama give us one which run on water before too long. Course ya know if you use bottled water it is much higher than gasoline. Who woulda thunk it? Beer is also higher than gas. I dont want one which runs on beer..but think it be cheaper than one which runs on water. Now this be counting the fancy Piddle Water provided to us by the Frog Eating Frenchies. They dip it out of the back of a commode in Paris ya know? That be for old Sat Night Live fans

His parole would be revoked if pics in a different state were to become public.

I have to admit that the BBQ was NOT worth the drive but the company was. Thanks again Cappy for picking up the Gen for me. We got back to the house 12 hours on the button from when we left. Poured some gas in the tank and oil in the oil thingey and granked up the Generator without a hitch. The ride home was good, Bryan drove most of the way until we stopped for gas and beer then Hunter (DD) drove home.

We were about 50 miles from home when I realized I forgot my camera. Sorry.
