In Which I Go to Raleigh and Something Completely Unexpected Happens
Note: Possible Slight Spoilers

My dad, brother "Pip" and I left from our house in Ohio around 4:30pm on Friday afternoon. We drove all the way down to Greensboro, NC, where my dad had an old college friend who was willing to put us up for two nights. Going through the mountains was really neat, as I hadn't seen them since I was seven or so. It was 12:00pm when we got to my dad's friend's house, and 1:00am before we got in bed, so we were all pretty exhausted.

Read the rest (and see the pictures) at my journal...

Wow, that is so awesome. In some dorky way I feel like the torch has been passed, 'cause that completely reminded me of my meeting Bono before an Atlanta concert in 1992. I've gotten older and the need to wait before the show to see the guys has dwindled, and perhaps because of that I had a hell of an experience at that same Raleigh show (traffic, etc). But I'm so glad you had a much better time. And Bono is magic in person. :o)

We heard people off in the distance cheering. My sis was extremely bummed when she found out people met Bono. She has waited forever but we didnt even think about going back there. I guess we were so anxious about getting a good spot inside. We tried in Tampa but they arrived so late.
So we will try in Miami next summer! If Bono comes out I will ask him to go get Adam. j/k

But that is so cool you met him! My respect for him grew when I heard he comes out to meet the fans. I really do appreciate when bands go out of their way to do things like that. A lot of the smaller bands will try to avoid fans and if they come near you they will act like you are such a hassle.
