Ha if you dont leave early in the morning or late at night it can take you just about as long as it wohld to drive to Oregon! !
 






Whats up!

I might be in for this run if thats cool. I wheeled with guys from the midwest on here when I lived in Nebraska, down at SMORR in Missouri and had lots of fun. Im near Fayetteville which is not far from there a few hours at the most. Let me know!
 






Everyone is welcome to come,more the better.i know some people are making it there summer vaction and bringing family down but staying in a hotel. There is plenty to do down there and the fishing from the beach is not bad;) its early now but the sites probably need to be reserved in the next month or two.i will probably reserve 10 sites and just have people paypal me.they say two tents and two trucks per site.ill post more info in the next couple days about pricing
EDIT pricing is in first post
 












111 views and only 3 people want to go?:(
 
























Its a weekend and your be back for the actual 4 of july!!you got months to take off!!we need more people to actually be able to reserve the sites.im just hoping its still early and more people will see this post and sign up.
Ive got a couple people coming that are nonmembers also.all is welcome
 






I make up for at least 10 views....so im 10 times the turd lol

So what kind of wheeling are we talking about or is this just a camping/beach trip?
 






well being its a sticky now, thatll help. i know someone next to my grandma with a heep and a big f350, maybe he could come, inno.

i have the 4th off and paid so im ok if im gone until then :)





omg burns if you come....... im gonna be trying to steal the paint off your truck to put on mine lolol
 






Hahahh just a meet and greet beach/camping trip.unless some locals know good spots near bye. ;)
 






Ok im trying to find a good place to wheel this time....

Thanks for the info
 






It is just Carolina beach wheeling. Oregon Inlet has about two miles of beach. It is stock wheekable if you air down. You can also go south on Hatteras Island. There are miles and miles of empty beach. You have to stay off the dunes, a big no no. The sand on Hatteras Island seems to be a little deeper and softer than farther north. There are also some sound side access paths, really not much for challange wheeling. The real draw for wheeling is empty beaches (south) and being able to drive up to the ocean. July 4 weekend will be pretty crowded. If you have never been there, it is well worth the effort. I know some people that only use their 4 wheel drive to go out on the beach. They have changed the rules for beach access, but is is still pretty cool. Frequently, you will see dolphins less than 100-feet off the shore. Lots of birds. Sometimes in the summer the fishing is good.

^agree on all this!i use to go every month down there but havent been in about two or three years. corolla is really nice too,wild house and ton of beach.i just pick Oregon because there is a camp site and marina right there.its close to all the hotels and tourist stuff.we can wheel any of the beachs or anywhere near bye.its just a meet and greet, relaxing summer get up!! Yes 4of july weekend it gets very packed so reservations need to be made early!with all that said,are you coming?

there is a second option now.ive call the Oregon inlet camp ground and left a message but they haven't gotten back to yet.so as a back up plan i called the koa in Hatteras and they take reservations.they have gotten very high reviews and i have stayed there before.i just thought Oregon inlet would be closer but if every one want to stay at Hatteras im down,witch ever is cheaper!!
Hatteras KOA pricing is 6 people max per site,3 tents max per site and 2 trucks per site.its $68 per site and that's based on 2people the rest don't matter.its $8 per adult with a max of 6 per site,so for 3 tents with one person per tent,3 people-3tents it would be $76 total,that's around $25 per person per night.it gets cheaper the more people you feel like stuffing in your tent!!
that i believe is more than what Oregon is charging as they posted $20 per site and $4 per additional adult,with a max of 2 tents per site.but that was last years pricing and im sure they charge more for holidays!!
