    Hey Gang,

    Topic starter for the hell of it.... we're heading down to Whalehead on April 5th. We're staying in a huge house with my husbands entire family. It'll be fun - yet.....nevermind. :D

    I've been to the Outter Banks a few times before but it's been a long time since the last time I was there. And even so, I was there during the heat of summer. We'll be driving down in our Acura MDX - and we might take it for a drive on the beach, gotta have some bragging rights that it actually went offroad (laugh).

    What types of stuff is there to do down there? Outdoorsy stuff....things to see... etc. I really wanna go fishing for a day - Do you have any recommendations for charter fishing trips? Not necessarily looking for an expensive deal - just a day out with some rental gear, the water, and catch some fish.

    Oh yeah...the last time I was there - we bought chicken legs and caught some crabs on the edge of some peer. That was FUNNY AS HELL and I'd like to do it again. But...... Are the crabs around that time of year?

    Weather? Too cold to swim....Shorts? All pants and sweatshirt?

    I'm excited! Can't wait to go!

    Vacation is almost over.... Weather was crappy all week , rain, cold (40's), & windy. Bought winter coats while we were down here. Made the best of it with the family (7 of us). Many trips to the hot tub and lots of champagne, beer, & margaritas! hehehee...
    Yesterday and today were the best yet - sunny & warm 65+ and we're finally able to get out on the beach and enjoy it!

    Leaving tomorrow.... didn't get to do any fishing or crabbing. The folks haven't been out fishing in weeks because the weather & seas have been too rough.

    Lots of tacomas out here...more older generations than the newer ones. Lots of lifted trucks with big fat wide tires (for sand). I even saw a couple lifted VANS too.

    Saw a white 'newer generation' tacoma towing a trailer full of crab pots. A couple tacos driving on the beach too.

    It helps to have some experience with snowboarding, wakeboarding, or surfing, but these guys can get just about anybody up on the kiteboard in a day or two. I'll be back down there in August for a week of kiteboarding and surfing. :D

    Beautiful day today! Full sun & 70 degrees! Finally got some time on the beach! Got to ride with my brother-in-law in his Xterra along the beach up to the VA line.

    It's pretty neat, they have HUGE houses for rent along the 4WD accesses (all sand, no pavement) and you gotta drive on the beach to get to your house. Saw one horse....munching on some grass in front of a beach house.
    :D

    We stayed on Corova Beach in 06, it was awesome!! Except for using a 1/4 tank of gas every time you left the beach house to get back to the town/restaurants.. 30 minutes on the sand, 30-45 on the blacktop.. LOL
