I left Virginia and rolled my way into North Carolina.

I headed out to Mt. Airy AKA Mayberry.

A town devoted to Andy Griffith.

And I met up with Sadie! Sadie is a HungrySister and is awesome and saw that I kind of had not much to do for a bit and offered to let me come stay with her a day earlier than planned!

In “Mayberry” there was a statue.

And a gas station.

And some other stuff.

And a jail.

And a museum we couldn’t take photos in.

We honestly never watched the Andy Griffith show all that much so we weren’t too familiar with anything else!

We were a bit hungry so we went to a fast food place called Cook-Out, which was definitely delicious!

I had a burger topped with homemade chili & slaw, mustard, and onions and a strawberry cheesecake milkshake. And we split some onion rings. It was delicious.

Sadie had to head off to work for a bit so she drove me to the bottom of a mountain and said “drive that way.”

And so I did.

And at the top it was beautiful.

I hiked around a bit and then met back with Sadie in Winston-Salem for a chill night of TV and Taco Bell preparing for the day ahead…
