Hi mokid,

 

We certainly don't get the numbers as a titled Oliver rally, but we do get many attendees and the Oliver owners at the last event were inundated with showing requests. I'd recommend to decide beforehand if you want to "show", and if so, make appointment times so you can also enjoy personal time.

Only for the Salty Adventurers

 

2019 is shaping to be the best educational event yet. Set in one of the most dynamic geologic locations on Earth, this strip of ever-shifting sandy land will make you appreciate the planet we occupy.

 

Carry your trailer wheels to a place that we can experience an ever-changing environment and the salty souls who inhabit it. To top off the video posted on the rally's site: Ribbon of Sand - North Carolina's Outer Banks, we also encourage you to watch the YouTube video

that presents the new Bonner Bridge, which is a vital part to safe navigation for NC.

 

The Oregon Inlet remains one of the most dangerous passages for any vessel anywhere on the East Coast and unless you’re bringing your camper via ferry system, you’ll be travelling over the new Bonner Bridge.

  • Thanks 1

We Dare You

I write this to y’all as Dorian dumps a bucket of water on us and sends puffs our way…

It’s not our first hurricane Rodeo. In fact, this year we’ve taken on the rally theme, “We Dare You”.

 

Camp Hatteras is located in Dare County, NC. Named after Virginia Dare, the first English child born in a New World overseas.

 

The Outer Banks folks are pros and everyone needs to take "recovery" lessons from them. Your concerns are recognized, however, I have the confidence in our camp to pull it off. Only if another hurricane is imminent on our rally weekend (like Matthew), Camp Hatteras will make it happen.

 

I'm currently returning from the SD rally, Inyan, sitting in a McDonalds parking lot for the night (and thank you McD for free, super strong wi-fi) just 100 miles out of Wilmington, NC. The wind gives just a gentle rocking in the trailer, and I know where I'm going for a fast breakfast and coffee in the morning. So far, all roads are passable.

 

The best part about all this pelting rain is the plethora of dead insects and birds stuck to my car and trailer from the long road trip, which are naturally getting pressure-washed away. Makes the destination wash down SO much easier!

 

I know that our OBX camp will be ready for us as they have multiple years in the past. That's why we're the salty adventurers who Dare…

 

So join us salty, sandy adventurers. “We Dare You!”

New Program Added!

 

After your morning coffee, stick around Sunday at 8:30am for Beachcombing Biology: the stories your beach finds tell, featuring all types of beachcombing treasures such as shells, egg cases, UFOs (unidentified found objects), bones, etc.

There will be interactive board games to play on (Beach Bingo and Shell Bingo) – matching the item with its correct common name.

 

This program is presented by Terri Kirby-Hathaway, Marine Educational Specialist with NC Sea Grant, and contributing author of North Carolina’s Amazing Coast.

 

In addition, she has some door prizes for correct answers to her trivia questions.

 

Terri will have copies for her book for purchase, North Carolina’s Amazing Coast: Natural Wonders from Alligators to Zoeas, and she’ll be happy to autograph any of those that are purchased.

 

We'll send registered participants an updated schedule Oct. 1st. (We're currently working on another rally treat for you...)

Interesting article on the south part (Cape Lookout area) and the effects of an extraordinary coastal storm surge on the environment....

Good luck on your event, it is quite a bit too far away for me to even think about.

Thanks John,

 

Yes, the Outer Banks is one of the most dynamic places on earth and always shifting.

 

Shifting like a travel trailer! If you can't make it out for a rally, it might be a location to consider for your bucket list.
