I'm just back from a very ambitious little roadtrip--Philly to Charlotte, North Carolina and back, and all to see a single show. Of course when the act in question is Bruce Springsteen, it's a given that the show will be epic and the journey worthwhile, even if that journey includes a flat tire on a very busy highway.
Luckily, that highway ran through North Carolina. Also luckily my travelling companion, Diane, thought to call our local buddy Todd, who got on the phone with IMAP--Incident Management Assistance Patrols--a wonderful North Carolinian institution that saved the day and got us on our way.
Special thanks to Ronnie Minor of the North Carolina Department of Transportation for being so kind, prompt, and helpful. Did I mention that it was Easter Sunday, and that we felt pretty stranded and helpless beside route 85 on an Easter Sunday with traffic whooshing by us...until he showed up and saved the day?
Of course I'll be writing about the concert in some detail. Stay tuned!
