Fun at the OBX!

First time on the sand and i am addicted. Little nervous at first because I used the access 1/2 a block down from our rental and had no backup in case I got stuck. Found much better access at the end of route 12. Very nice area and we are already making plans to go back next year!

My little Sony point and shoot did not do very well with all the contrast...

Taken from the balcony of our rental.


Way down the beach at the end of route 12

Overall I put about 35 miles on the beach/dunes over 2 days. The first day I aired down but had trouble finding a place with a working air pump to fill back up. The second day I went @ 35 PSI and wile the traction was not as good I had very little issues. If you drive to the end of route 12 in Corolla the pavement literally ends and you can drive for ?? miles on the beach in either direction. There are literally dozens of very nice houses for rent with 4 x 4 only access miles away from any pavement!

Looks great. How was the weather and wind? Could you sit and relax on the balcony?

That is awesome! I'm actually going to be in the OBX first week in May. Plan on doing some beach travel myself. Do you have any rub issues with your BFG'S? It's time for new tires and I don't have a lift yet and it looks like you don't so I was just wondering. You can PM me if you'd like (so I'm not whoring your thread). Thanks!
