PostSubject: OBX Weekend Itinerary   Sun Oct 09, 2011 10:07 pm

All, the following is a "close to final" itinerary for the weekend. It will only be open to suggestion through this week. Let me know what you think:

OBX Itinerary: CB channel 7 (Bruisers are using channel 22)

Hotel: Holiday Inn Express
3915 N. CROATAN HWY P.O. BOX 1096 KITTY
HAWK , NORTH CAROLINA 27949 United States

Friday Night:

Early Bird Meet: Barefoot Bernie'sTropical
Grill & Bar
3730 North Croatan Highway
Kitty
Hawk, North Carolina 27949

Distance from Hotel: .05 miles.
Walking: 9 minutes
6pm - ???
Very Casual, drinks/appetizers – who
ever wants to show up.

Point of Contact:

Paul Ward (paulwardinc) paulwardinc@gmail.com (910)-617-7852
Rolando Villegas (Carolina Cruiser15) (704) 842-2779


Saturday:

Depart HIX Parking Lot 10:00 am

Drive to Cape Hatteras Light House (1hr
30 minutes)

Tour lighthouse grounds , group picture

Climbing tour is only open till Oct 11,
2011
Visitor's Center museum and grounds open year-round.

Lunch Hatteras Island? Packed? On the
beach?
http://hatterasislander.com/HatterasIslandBeachAccess.html.
There is also a picnic area and sandy beach for fun in the sun with
little ones who find the ocean a bit intimidating. The Salvo Day Use
Area is a great place to pack a lunch, cook out and soak up the sun
while the kids play in the shallow waters of the Pamlico Sound.
Perhaps they would enjoy crabbing from the water's edge. For your
convenience restroom facilities are in place as well as grills and
picnic tables. http://wikimapia.org/1171771/Salvo-Day-use-area

Drive back to Kitty Hawk, sights along
the way

Sight suggestions:

Jockey Ridge State Park:
http://www.jockeysridgestatepark.com/

Wright Brothers Memorial KDH -
http://www.nps.gov/wrbr/index.htm

(Please add suggestions and we can all
discuss)


Dinner: I had to to go the option of a
BIG location, just incase we have as big a turn out as I hope, so I
highly suggest the following:

Captain Georges Seafood Buffet
705 s Croatan highway, Kill Devil
Hills, NC 27948
4.5 miles from hotel
Pint glasses will be issued at dinner

This place is big and is used to tour
buses, so we should be good. I have an email to them asking for
discount coupons and advising them of our group size. Even though
this is a BUFFETT, it is amazing good! The food quality is spot on
and the variety can't be beat.

Sunday:

Depart HIX at 9:30am, drive to Corolla
, visit Currituck Beach Light house (this is the only lighthouse that
appears to be open for climbing during our weekend.)
http://www.currituckbeachlight.com/visit.php
This is not mandatory, I did not plan a
“group tour” as I am sure not all will want to climb the light
house. Next year, if we all want to include this for sure, we can set
up a group tour.

Spend rest of the day after that on the
beach driving/exploring.

Me and my girlfriend will be leaving Raleigh early Friday, probably around 6am or so. I know some others who are rolling in mid-morning. I think David, his wife and son will be getting in late afternoon.

Most people are coming in later though I think because of work.

Just realized you guys aren't even going to Ocracoke? The ferry ride is free, makes a good photo, and it's the longest stretch of beach you can ride on in the Banx! ... Oh well Sad

I would suggest everyone print this out and keep in their truck so they know where the ramps are, this is really old and there are more closures. But good general info for the new guys...

Yeah I think Hatteras is the furthest South we're going. For only being there 1 full day, Ocracoke would be a haul.

On the night driving permit, it looks like it only applies after 10pm. Is this correct? I'll probably be sound asleep in the hotel by 10pm...

Yeah, I think thats right. I figure Ill be in bed early too but Id rather be prepared... you know, just in case. It would be sweet if we could get a little fire going with everyone out there with their lights and all. I could stay up later for that Very Happy

Lol... Ok maybe 11... And I think you can have a fire under certain circumstances... Like natural wood only and it has to be below high tide mark and 100 yards away from vegetation

You can have fires only on Hatteras, but the above restrictions apply. No other places north, or south except for Hatteras allow fires. I might be up for dinner Saturday and head back out for a nice campfire.

Dang that's crazy. We figured Hatteras is about 1.5 hrs from the hotel and the restaurant is only about 15 mins from the hotel.
