Added more pics. There are the wild horses running around . We had a carport where we were keeping our fishing gear and coolers. I went out to get gear ready to fish and there was a horse standing there. He didn't want me in there at all, was stomping his feet and hollerin at me. I think maybe he wanted a beer. Well, we made it home today. We had a lot of fun and I enjoyed the beach driving. The Commander performed flawlessly in the sand. You can drive anywhere on the beach you want as long as you stay off the dunes. They recommend that you drive on the smooth sand at the water's edge and park in the middle of the beach. I would drive down there at night mainly as I didn't like going between the water and other people's parked vehicles with kids and dogs running around during the day. You would be surprised how many people would do this though. I really had to keep an eye on my daughter, she just isn't use to looking for trucks while running around on the beach. I saw a few commanders on the beach, all stock. I also saw a bunch of people stuck, mostly AWD vehicles with no ground clearance. The beach is so rutted up and very bumpy. When loaded down, the rear suspension felt like it was completely compressing when going over some of the whoop - de - doos. There were front valence panels all over the place, Ha ! And I got to run my off-road lights when going to the house at night, what a difference they make.Our house was 7 miles up the beach so it took about 20 - 25 minutes or so with it so rutted. I tried not to hit em too fast, it is so easy to slam the front end down hard when it gets to bumping up and down.

Up where we were, north of Corolla at Carova Beach, there is about 10 miles of beach driving up to the Va state line where you cant go any further. There is also some areas where you can drive down on Hatteras Island but not sure how much.
