    I thought I was keeping up but there are so many photos here that I missed. I love this format where I can check out all your beautiful photos. You have the makings of a beautiful coffee table book. Keep up the good play.

    We went to the Outer Banks a couple of years ago and loved it. May is an ideal time to go, weatherwise and also before the crowds descend. Okracoke was very beautiful and we camped just over the dunes from the ocean. We stayed at OCRACOKE CAMPGROUND (NC), Cape Hatteras National Seashore, NC ( We went next to Cape Point, near Nags Head, but it will not open until May 28 this year. Mosquito repellant and sun screen are a must as you probably already know. This place is part of living the dream to us. Glad you are going. Keep us posed.

    Andy- JC has a great idea (as usual!) – you should make this blog of your journey around the US into a book. Hope you’re having a good time. I am enjoying watching your journey. If you make it to northwest Wisconsin – you better look me up!
