OBX is one of my FAVORITE places in the USA!!! When you drive on the north beach MAKE SURE TO AIR DOWN TO 15-20PSI!!!! I got my MDX stuck in the sand before we got Sporty…had driven on it before, but forgot to air down (yes extremely absent minded STUPID)…luckily the dude on the beach (locals) took pitty on a IOWA license plate and helped us before the $400 tow/rescue!! Plus we are very nice, humble people admitting my stupidity…the wife was agreeing
..anyway, take it all in and best shelling is in the middle of the Natl Seashore HWY 12, at the PeaIsland area about two or so miles before Rodanthe…Park on the road and walk over the dunes to the seashore. Walk either way and see some real beauty shells…we even found a boogie board, frisbee, sand pales, sunglasses all kinds of interesting junk! Have a blast and make sure to stop at the Wright Brothers field…great moment in time captured with the four big rocks representing their first tries before they actually flew (#4 try) over a football field…cool…have FUN!!! But with a Sportsmobile, even Walmart is fun eh!?!
