Yeah, our state is growing incredibly fast, especially in the Charlotte and Triangle areas. More and more people are discovering how great our state is. When I drive on I-40 I am amazed at all of the out of staters. I even see a lot of Georgia tags (probably silly Atlantans) on the intersate driving really fast. Ya gotta watch out for those Georgia (Atlanta) drivers! :lol:
