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.

May 18, 2018 Joe Loves Lobster Food Truck
Post by John Rancke
Looking for something a little out of the ordinary. Tired of fried shrimp and fried flounder. Tired of the same old same old week after week dining choices!
What would you eat if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life? What would you want for a last meal? What do you want to eat for your birthday? Anniversary?
How about Lobster rolls! Not that fancy lobster you eat with a bib in a fancy Surf and Turf fine dining establishment. Just lobster meat and a roll with some lemon juice!!!
Well look east my Carolina friends to the Port City of Wilmington NC. Joe Loves Lobster is a food truck that serves real honest to goodness lobster claw meat usually found only in the cold Northeast corner of the United States.
This food truck is in Wilmington. He moves around and serves from his truck, so you need to plan ahead. You can go to the Facebook page each day and find out where he will be and jump in your car and take the short drive to Wilmington and eat that succulent lobster meat. On Tuesday May 15th he was set up at Fly Trap Brewing-that is pretty good combo -craft beer and lobster roll.
Here is a line in front of his truck in Wilmington NC

Nothing fancy here. Just good eats. No lobster salad mixed. Real meat!
Simple food, it’s almost impossible to describe how perfect this thing is. A sliced roll slathered with butter and grilled, stuffed with giant chunks of cold steamed Maine lobster very lightly mixed with mayonnaise. Hot. Cold. Butter. Lobster. I can’t even.
“It’s like crack,” says owner Tony Herndon, “you’ll be back.”
No joke. His lobster rolls are the answer to everything. I believe.
