For the first time in four years, Roxanne and I both have a shared weekend off that coincides with one of the weekends that the annual Carolina Renaissance Festival is going on. Of course, it just figures that Lowe's Motor Speedway, which is in the same vicinity as the Festival, is hosting the Bank of America 500 that same weekend so every hotel in a 50 mile radius is booked and/or outrageously priced. I had considered just driving up and back in the same day, but it's about a three-hour trip one-way, so I don't think that would be plausible (especially if we go in full Renaissance garb). Mayhaps we'll get lucky and we'll have another shot at it before the Festival ends on November 18.
Oh yeah, I should probably mention that the Festival opened October 6 and we were planning on going on the weekend of October 13-14.
