The day began with cloudy skies and a 60% possibility of rain as I headed east on highway 1-85 toward Hillsborough, North Carolina. In the car were such things as folding chairs, canvas covers, Thermos jugs, as well as three excited young sons. Behind all this was my trailer loaded with an assortment of engines all shined up and ready to stretch their muscles after a winter of hibernation. I was quite apprehensive in as much as this was the first effort of Willard Moore and myself to promote a crank-up in the spring of the year. The location of the Daniel Boone Campgrounds was new for crank-ups but ideal in all it had to offer.
