That map's pretty interesting.

Here's my attempt:

Asheville/Hendersonville: 9 (would have been 10, except things have changed in the last few years that I haven't been living there.)

Triangle area: 8

Other parts of WNC: 3

Charlotte: 3

Triad: 3

Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach: 1

Rest of the state: 0.

The part of NC that I'm most familiar with is basically Wake County north to the VA border and west to Boone. I'm very unfamiliar with the eastern part of the state, not counting Wilmington or the counties along I-40 heading to Wilmington. Also not familiar, aside from recognizing names of places, with the southern part of the state, including such areas as Lumberton, Charlotte, and anywhere south of Boone/Blowing Rock in the mountains,

I know the Triad the best (especially Greensboro), and I know the Triangle and Charlotte really well. The other parts of the state can sometimes be a blur, but reat assured I know most of the state's retail destinations :)

The Triangle, mainly Durham, the 15-501 area through Chapel Hill, North Raleigh and most of the DT Raleigh area.

I'm fairly competent with Asheville and Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach too.

I Feel that you guy never talk about Fayetteville, NC. Let me give you a little history about Fay-town, Did you know that Fayetteville lost to Raleigh of one vote of being the capital of the state. Plus fayetteville is way more diverse than all other cities. Also fayetteville has prodiction of gain more than 38,000 new residents in the next 5 years. I personally think fayetteville could soon one day become the next Atlanta type city. Oh yeah I Forget in 2008 their going to be posting a new energy plant for North Carolina.

I Demand a DT Fayetteville.

Welcome to the forum but please take a chill pill. There is no need to be so angry on your first post here. I recommend you take the time to get to know UrbanPlanet before making demands and claims.

Not too good with the Asheville city itself- just know the general area. I know the Biltmore side great though.

9 - Areas west of Charlotte

7 - Charlotte area.

6 - Northeast of Charlotte

3 - Triad

3 - Triangle

3 - Northeast North Carolina/Albemarle Sound area

0 - Wilmington and Southeast NC

I grew up in northeastern NC, so I'm most familiar with the Roanoke-Chowan area--from Pasquotank County west to Halifax, south to Martin. I have a deep love and appreciation for that region, north of US 64 and east of I-95.

Next would be the Triad (did my undergrad there), followed by the northwest mountains down the Blue Ridge Parkway (I'd say about a 6-8).

I have a functional knowledge of the Triangle and Charlotte, but not enough to say I'm well-versed with the area (4-5).

I'd like to get reacquainted with southeastern NC, from Greenville south to Wilmington. We used to go to Wilmington every year when they had the Port City Classic (Elizabeth City State vs. Fayetteville State).
