Just curious, how come "High Pt" is accepted for Wilmington? I typed in High Pt because I'm lazy and ended up getting Wilmington.

Just wondering if anyone finds the inclusion of county names helpful. Seems to me that most people outside of North Carolina would have very little knowledge of them. I barely know the names of the counties in my own state and simply didn't find that information helpful in completing the quiz. Maybe it helps NC natives? Anyone?

No, if you don't know the cities already, the county names probably aren't much help. Meanwhile, I can't believe all the Fayetteville peeps who commented. My town, too!
