Leesa, Thanks for the post. So if I head down now, I can go swimming on Tuesday, dine on fried fish and  hush puppies all day Friday, then dance it off Friday night until Saturday morning before my pancake breakfast and catch a concert on Saturday before heading home? I'd better check the Wake Forest Info Page for accommodations. Great Post!
