I came down to do something near Cat's Cradle in Carrboro this morning. Then I was (and am) planning to do the American Tobacco Trail Wednesday night social skate, as I hear Jay from Atlanta may be rolling in, and Tom GotSkates is likely there, plus skatey-mark and more.&nbsp;</p><p>On the way into town I saw a bus that looked like a rock band bus...nice, but not announcing who they are...toting a trailer, too. I wondered who it might be, figuring they were on the way to the Cradle.&nbsp;</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Cat&#039;s Cradle </span> <div class="street-address"> 300 East Main Street </div> <span class="locality">Carrboro</span>, <span class="region">North Carolina</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="35.910267">35° 54' 36.9612" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-79.068915">79° 4' 8.094" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=35.910267+-79.068915+%28300+East+Main+Street%2C+Carrboro%2C+NC%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=300+East+Main+Street&amp;csz=Carrboro%2C+NC&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
