Only 15 States To Go!

Posted August 30, 2007 7:55 a.m. EDT

35 down. Only 15 states to go in our quest to hear from Carolina Conversations blog readers in all 50 states.

Today will be crucial. We really need to nail down most of those 15 today since tomorrow is the deadline and the start of a holiday weekend.

Please, if you know someone in the following states, have them leave a comment on this blog or email me directly at bleslie@wral.com about what they miss or appreciate about North Carolina:

Alabama

Idaho

Illinois

Michigan

Montana

Nebraska

North Dakota

Oregon

Pennsylvania

Rhode Island

South Dakota

Utah

Vermont

West Virginia

Wyoming


Highlights from yesterday included a post from former Miss Garner Leigh Tulloss who now lives near the North Pole in Alaska and works in the military with her husband. Leigh misses family and friends, the Outer Banks beaches, great Raleigh restaurants and come winter the mild weather.

Early this morning I heard from Raleigh native “Kaylor” who is traveling in Cambodia. Kaylor misses Carolina football games, chilly autumn nights, the NC State Fair and Cheerwine.

Former Catawba County Assistant District Attorney Tom Barrows, now a successful lawyer in Delaware, misses the food, especially NC barbecue which he calls “the best on the planet.”

Bergiejk lives now in Minnesota and misses fine friends from West End.

Thank you very much for playing along. Let’s bring home those 15 remaining states today!
