    DFI Meet, Raleigh, North Carolina, 2012

    Hello All,

    I had some spare time. I though, "why not meet someone from DFI who lives close by?" So Mr. Ewald and I drove to Raleigh this morning and met. It was an informal meet.

    Next time I go to New York City, I will make it a point to meet LethalForce and TrackWhack.

    Few months back I traveled to Atlanta, but my schedule was very tight and meeting JayATL was not possible.

    UTubeKhiladi lives in Texas. If I happen to go there, I'll try to meet him as well.

    The following post contains some images that we took at Raleigh. We did take a picture together, but I will refrain from posting it, for the sake of internet anonymity.

    Well, maybe. Perhaps pmaitra did not want to post my image out of respect for the sensibilities of DFI members.:)

    The first photo is a statue to the memory of the first Confederate soldier from North Carolina to fall in the Civil War.

    The statue in the 3rd photo, behind the 3-pounder gun, is placed in to the first casualty of the Spanish-American War. He was an ensign in the US navy.

    Thanks for all the information Mr. Ewald. I have added them to my post.

    Also, do you happen to know the name of the person who died in the Spanish-American War? Was it William Randolph Hearst?

    Edit: Never mind. It is Worth Bagley.

    Some say William Randolph Hearst created the Spanish-American War!

    North Carolina does have more attractions on the coast and in the mountains than in the Piedmont.

    It takes about 45 minutes to get from Apex to Raleigh.
