#ZipCodes February 25


I started the Coach4aday blog in 2014 and have done daily posts on one topic for each year. In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and in 2017 it was “Colleges and Universities”.

The one consistent piece of feedback I have received with this blog is the 2015 series on “A Friend of a Friend”. Readers and blog followers said please bring it back. The stats also back that up with the number of views each of those posts received.

So in 2018 two things will happen with the Coach4aday blog; One I plan to collaborate with a friend named John Rancke and revisit some of those 2015 “A Friend of a Friend” posts and do some new ones with a slightly different twist. I write the posts on odd numbered days each month and John handles the even numbered days.

In addition John and I will write about things we both are interested which will include basketball, food, people, music, our granddaughters, and great stories.

My twitter handle is @coach4aday2 if you want to follow the blog that way.

North Carolina Zip Codes

Post was originally published February 25, 2016

Sometimes my brain poses a question to me and I want to find out the answer. Last week on my commute to work I drove by the US Post Office in Pembroke NC-zip code 28372. That image of the post office got me to think about Zip Codes. What numbers are used in North Carolina. What is the first number used in the State of North Carolina and what is the last?

The answer is they start at the number 27006 for Advance NC located in Davie County and end with 28909 in Clay County for a town I never heard of before called Warne.

Warne is not actually a town it is an unincorporated area of Brasstown, NC. It is located just a few mile north of the NC/GA state line not too far from Young Harris GA.

Zip codes starting appearing on mail in 1963.

The five numbers in a zip code have a purpose.

  • The first digit designates a broad area, which ranges from zero for the Northeast to nine for the far West.
  • The two following digits are the code of a central post office facility in that region.
  • The last two digits designate small post offices or postal zones.
