The ride from Greensboro to Charlotte was more suburban than the rough and ready countryside of the last couple of days. Less visually interesting but less likely to get rushed by a pack of pitbulls so swings and roundabouts I guess. As I move further south the visual urban landscape changes, with more and more brick rather than wooden houses.
I stopped for lunch at Hendrix Barbecue and I have to say that I am really enjoying the roadside food down South, whether in general stores, roadside bbq joints or just gas stations with a grill and a couple of tables. The kind of simple place where a working guy can get some eggs and a mug of coffee has pretty much disappeared in England where nowadays there is not much to fill the space between chain fast food and hipster pretentiousness.
Drinks were at the Cowbell Burger & Whisky Bar where talk was of Lidl's US expansion strategy and how to make it as a professional golfer.
