“Scott is a good guy. very personable. His fans love him,” said Tim Forrest, co-owner of N.C. General Stores in downtown Wake Forest.

“Scott seems to remember everybody’s name and took time with everyone he met.” said Forrest.

“It was a very good day for us, we saw people in the store we had never seen, and it was because of Scott and his huge fan base.”

Not a stranger to Wake Forest, after his book signing, Mason went down South White to Shorty’s Famous Hot Dogs to eat with old friend Chris Joyner.

After catching up with Joyner, the “Tarheel Traveler” got his hot dog, of course, to go.
