We also had some time to have dinner together on Friday night and explore Charlotte a bit and have lunch together on Saturday afternoon. Our trip down on Friday was slow, with a few accidents and backed up traffic in the way. Our trip home on Sunday was going extremely well until we hit Petersburg Virginia where some obstacle in the roadway destroyed the very lower part of the front bumper and a bunch of stuff under the car.
I didn't see what we hit but I think the car ahead of me and to the right hit it first and sent it low and fast right at the middle of my car. It caused quite a bump, like a ginormous pothole but it didn't effect the wheels at all. The car continued to drive fine but it became clear that we didn't have the power we had before the bump. We made it home with the car straining at times on hills.
In daylight this morning I noticed what looked like some animal hair on the under carriage before the tow truck came to take it to the shop. I'm looking forward to hearing what the shop thinks I hit. It was a slightly stressful end to a really fun weekend.

Sent from my iPhoneSam tipped off against his AAU teammate and in front of his AAU coach in his final regular season game last night. His AAU coach and teammate are on Wakefield high school. I dreaded rival. I don't think Sam ever jumped that high for the tip and ended up winning it. They lost the game after leading for three quarters but he played really well in front of both his coaches. (Edison and Pro Look/AAU).
Dylan and I drove down to Charlotte North Carolina for a Rugby Tournament yesterday and missed the sold out game. The district tournament starts next week.
