It’s that time of year again, as I hit the road for some minor-league baseball while experiencing the sights, sounds, and small towns… on a low budget!

North Carolina is the destination this year, with stops in Zebulon (vs. the P-Nats, weather permitting), Winston-Salem, Kannapolis, Hickory, Greensboro, and Durham over the next six days.

I’ll also be researching the great debate of Eastern-style (vinegar-based) vs. Western-style (tomato-based) Carolina barbecue along with visits to museums and other tourist traps.

The goal, as always, is to keep the site running as best as I can from the free WiFi of cheap inexpensive motels, but there’s always the chance that the News & Notes might be abbreviated, and responses to queries and comments a bit more sporadic.

For folks interested in seeing some of the places I’ve been before, the “Road Trips” page has been rebuilt.

  1. Enjoy the trip Luke.

  2. The photo begs the question; are the dogs going with you?
    Also, why is this trip ‘low budget’ with all the money you’re making off this site?
    Inquiring minds want to know!

  3. That is Americana baseball @ its best! Safe travels and good eats!!!!!!! throw out all caution to wind
    and ingest all the carbs and hops!!! LOL!

    • Jeff reminds me ……… take photos of the food at these places. I agree, Americana at its best, and we get to enjoy it vicariously. :)

  4. Be safe! See you a few weeks.

  5. Its not the same without a stop at Fort Pedro … oh I guess that’s South Carolina …

  6. Sign me up for the Carolina style BBQ! Smithfields wasn’t bad as I recall. Also too bad they aren’t playing in Kinston any longer; was always one of my favorites.

    Safe travels Luke!!
