Mike, Brian Jones and I live about 30 miles from New Bern. You are welcome to come see my truck, as I don't think it will be ready to drive to New Bern. Make sure you see Tryon Palace while there, its a pretty neat place. And if you want somewhere good to eat, I can point you to a little restaurant run by Mennonites that has killer food.
How in the world have I spent this much money and still don't have a running vehicle?
