I love this site and plan to help support your effort !
We just moved to this home and it has all kinds of trees everywhere. Other than a few new strange looking friends we love it.

Dear Lost in the woods,
This Tussock Moth Caterpillar appears quite dead, and we are guessing that you found the carcass while cleaning your new home.  It might be a Southern Tussock Moth Caterpillar, which according to BugGuide is found in North Carolina.
