[QUOTE=STBNE;24008814]The only reason i wont take a tag out to Okracoke is because i have a phobia with open bodies of water...no boats/ferries or high long bridges over large stretches of water... otherwise this would be on the barrier islands...laugh all you want but at least i know my limits.[/QUOTE]

Been on that ferry many times. It's a nice ride. Go for it Ben!

Do you all remember Mr T on the 1980's TV show The "A" Team??? He was deathly afraid to fly and they would have to DRUG him to get him on a plane...ok fictional but the same wouldd apply for me...for real...I'd have to be drunk,tripping or stoned ...or any combination thereof...

I knew you had a problem with bridges. Did not know open water was a problem. The ferries have inside rooms that you can pretty much avoid sight of it and the water is pretty flat.

262 miles one way, not tonight! Touron season is getting cranked up out there. Between the enviro Nazis and the tourist there isn't much appeal left for me between Hatteras and Corolla.

Other than a handful of locals and several hundred bikers, the OBX was dead this week. Half the businesses are closed.

Nice grab!

Hey, as long as folks are playing in that area, I've got zero justifiable complaint. Might make me waste a tire and head out that way someday.

Thanks WB. It was mostly a backroad ride. Not all, but a good day.
Hey, you can always buy a new tire..:)
