So I'm in Raleigh, NC this week. I head back to the Northwest tomorrow afternoon. Since I'm so close, I lined up lunch with a good friend in Charlotte. It was what they call a "wild hair": a two-to-three hour drive for lunch, but I figured it might be worth it.
I have a pretty sorry little rental car this week, so between my fear of it dying on the Interstate and a desire for a nicer drive, I decided to take 64 to Asheboro, then 49 to Charlotte:

But I missed the turn from Hwy 1 to Hwy 64 in Apex. I have no idea how I missed it, but I did. I started getting nervous when I saw signs for Southern Pines, but still hadn't seen signs for Siler City.
Yep, I ended up in Moore County, "on the way" to Charlotte. I was south of Sanford.
I had to call both people I meant to meet and tell them. They both laughed, so there were no hard feelings. But I sure felt stupid.
