Default Heading to Charlotte

Well I'll be leaving on Thursday for a trip to Charlotte NC to go to my cousins wedding. I'm kind of excited to go back to Charlotte and be downtown amongst all the action. I'll be staying at the Holiday Inn Center City which is where the wedding reception is (on the roof) and the church is about two blocks up the street.

I know it'll be a long drive from PA though, about 8 1/2 hours without stops, but that'll be fine hopefully.

So I might not be around much for the 4 days that I'll be there, the hotel has wifi and I'm planning on taking my laptop though.

Didn't hit any bad weather going down or back. We got there and back without incident and the wedding was great.

Yeah, it was actually pretty nice, only rained for a little bit on Saturday in the city. It was enough to move the wedding reception indoors though, everything on the rooftop got wet, tables and chairs. We had the dinner inside but did move to the roof for cake and dancing and drinking which was really nice.

Open bar all night!......wooooo!
