Does anyone know who this might be ?

Talked with a guy today ( 10-19-2010 ) at the local McDonald's in Lillington NC, He was traveling from Pennsylvania to St Petersburg
Florida, He is on his 11th day, and would be riding a vintage Jamis bike, red panniers and
handle bar bag, light blue bike, black fenders Planet bike, and was probably around mid 50's.
Talked with him for a while, said he posted on BF on the touring, vintage, and mechanic forum,
and I post on the Hybrid, did not think to ask him his s/n and was wondering if any of you
would know him ? Super nice guy..Thanks Richard

Richard...WTF are you doing in Lillington, NC? I live about 12 miles from there and have been known to show up there on my bike occasionally. Unfortunately I am in PA at the moment, and I have no clue who the guy is you are looking for. I do see the occasional touring rider heading south on NC210 or US401. If I do catch them I offer them a place for the night down in the Anderson Creek/Old Farm area.

Thanks, I was just hoping to talk to him again. Wonder how his trip went, I am familiar with your area.. I really
live in Kipling, Lillington is just the largest town to commute to..( LOL ) He said he had been riding 301, and
was going to take 401 towards Fayetteville..Like you, I see a few passing through, but most are riding and
never really get to talk to them...Richard
