Molly

Raz, I love your picture of Molly sleeping on the bed. She looks a lot like our Shopcoat. Years ago we were near Ocracoke in July, and the green heads (Huge green flies) just about drove us crazy! Chased us back to the car and then hit the windshield with a fury trying to get us. Another time the noseums had us zipped up in our sleeping bags with just our noses sticking out even though it was July. But that was in our tent camping days. Hope to try again before too long, but in the Snoozy, not a tent!

Yea, that's the worlds worst dog. I keep threatening to make a bathroom rug out of her. She still won't listen.

We used to come in July/ August when we worked for a living. Too hot for us Yankees. Mosquitos have been our biggest issue in the past. A hard puddle making rain and a few days later they swarm. A few green heads but none now. This is not a good tent camping campground because it is too level. The day after one of those heavy coastal storms and the tenters are miserable. Wet sleeping bags and not a dryer for miles..

Right now there are lots of young folks, done with college but the job hasn't started yet. And retirees like us. In the fall there are lots of retirees. We see the same folks every year. The showers are warmer in the fall too.

With any luck we'll be pulling into Frisco sometime late Thursday afternoon but I don't expect any of the upper "P" sites such as you found will be open. For the last few years all four of the NPS campgrounds on the OBX have been full for the Holiday weekends by mid day on Friday. If you're still around and see a fiver pulled by a green Tacoma double cab stop by and say 'hi'.

Sorry we are going to miss you. We left Ocracoke today and are back in Frisco for the night. A10 going down and P49 tonight. Had lunch at Hatterasman. OBX fast food. We plan to head up to Janes Island State Park in Maryland. See if we can do some paddling. We'll be home by Friday. Have a nice visit, Raz

Forgive my ignorance, but what does "OBX" stand for? Or did I miss the explanation?

Refers to the Outer Banks of North Carolina northern part. Much like HH refers to Hilton Head etc for other areas

Raz, we camped at Jane's Island SP in March 1974. I had two milsurp shelter halves (makes one pup tent), air mattresses, and wool blankets--no sleeping bags. After freezing nearly solid, the next day we drove to Crisfield and bought bags with cotton flannel linings printed with pheasant and grouse from a filling station/bait shop. Still have one of them on the back seat of the truck. Took the ferry from Crisfield to Smith Island. Never been back.

Maybe we can catch you next time Raz. We've camped in A10 and P49 and would gladly take either for this weekend unless P61 were to magically be vacant.

My apologies to Mike for the acronym and an open invitation to come visit our NC barrier islands. Don't be fooled by those Virginians, we had the first real settlement in the new world.

Sorry Mike, my fault on the OBX. I used it in the title. Nicest undeveloped beaches on the east coast. Add it to your list.

Well Janes was a bust. We pulled in to a major fly hatching. Like deer flies only smaller and quite carnivorous. We really want to paddle the canoe trails, maybe in the fall. On to Killens. Wow Jack, Delaware sure wants a lot of money for a camp site. Take care of that will you. Raz

D10 looks like a winner too but might be a little short for a Scamp 19? Have you been to the Orange Blossom bakery in Buxton across from the Exxon station for breakfast. The croissant sandwich........ Have a great visit, Raz

Trap Pond is my pick, Raz, but you are probably wanting to make as much northing as possible. We're going to Assateague mid-June. Lots of juice-free sites open for those who can check in on Sunday or Monday.
