If you're driving on I-85 North on your way to Charlotte, you're destined to pass through Gaffney, South Carolina. VT member, b1bob and I decided to make a slight detour on our way back from Asheville to Charlotte and, in a twist of fate, I ended up getting pulled over by one of South Carolina's finest state troopers doing 80 in a 60! Oops.

Not wanting to have the points follow me on my insurance record, I decided to make the hour drive back to Gaffney from Charlotte and appear in court to enter a plea that would prevent my insurance rates from getting jacked up to those of my teenage years.

Here are some of my impressions . . .

    I love your water tower picture. I have one on my Gaffney page also but its not very clear and looks dark. I always think the water tower looks like a giant butt.

    150 bucks! I guess Gaffney can buy lots of new peach plants of your money. Maybe you gave the local economy a boost with that money.

    What an... exciting visit to that point of the community, eh? But the most possible is that the place won't be less... dead by using your money... hehe
