Travel Log – 9/27/2007
Rick and I made it to North Carolina/South Carolina (or the “Carolinas” as they say) on Sunday and have enjoyed a couple days to catch up. Nothing too exciting, we needed it. We’ve done laundry, worked out (yeah!), grocery shopped, purchased a couple of great lounge chairs, caught up on email, participated in a couple teleconferences and just hanged out! The weather is unseasonably warm, so we’ve been out and about in the AM and stayed close to air conditioners after noon.
