Just south of the one and only Pleasant Garden in North Carolina, at the intersection of United States Highway 421 and North Carolina Highway 62, you will come to Climax. However, the small town did not receive its’ name due to its’ horizontal position with respect to the junction, but from its’ vertical position, upon a hill.  And why not? After all, the formation of the town name makes at least as much sense as another town in the Greensboro-High Point metropolitan area, specifically Why Not, whose name stems from an inability to settle on a name, prodding people to continually offer different solutions, asking “Why not?” 
If you want to know where the white oak grows, then it would help to speak Native American, since Coolleemee is believed to be an Indian term for “place where the white oak grows.”  However, equally interesting is the path one would potentially take to arrive at Coollemee, which involves taking the Mocksville exit off Interstate 40 toward Greasy Corner, where one would turn onto Highway 801 to the Native American named town. 
Of course, if it is interesting travel directions one is looking for, then one can always travel to Gum Neck via the Landing called Kilkenny, which, appropriately enough, is situated at the end of Hunter Road. Or, perhaps, Horneytown is more your pace. If so, the small town triangulated between Winston-Salem, Greensboro and High Point is a straight shot, figuratively speaking, down High Point Road from Union Cross. As one meanders southeast on High Point, beyond Dixie Drive and Serenity Pointe Drive, across the Old High Point Road, one will reach the crescendo of anticipation beyond Hillside and, anti-climactically enough, Barney, at which point Horneytown will be arrived at.  Of course, the trip from Union Cross to Horneytown should only take about eight minutes along the road of High Point.
If a beverage is necessary, a trip to Toast is always possible while in North Carolina, where one came make a toast to the small town in northwestern North Carolina or to any of the other interesting locations in the “Tar Heel State” and “Old North State.”
Other locations in North Carolina where one might be able to have a drink or pick up an interesting souvenir include Tick Bite and Lizard Lick, although it might be a hard-pressed endeavor considering the fact that Lizard Lick did not contain a traffic light until 1997.  However, a trip to Tick Bite could elicit a rock, since the community is the home to a quarry.
