Went into my trailer yesterday to take some measurements. Had to dig down 2 feet before the door would open . At Frisco there's also a nice site at the top of the A loop if the P sites are taken. I reommend the breakfast croissants at the Orange Blossom in Buxton. Raz

Raz - thanks for the tip on the A loop. We almost always make a stop at the Orange Blossom for an Apple Ugly on the way home; great recommendation!

We're snowless this morning for the first time in a while and expecting temps in the 70's but they're calling for more freezing rain tonight and tomorrow. I don't know how you folks up north cope with this mess for an entire winter.

Al

Starting to get ready for our first trip of the year. Ocracoke NPS campground for two weeks. Got the camper out today and put my aluminum fishing cart on the back. Three weeks to get everything ready.

Ted, we're still planning to be at Frisco for opening weekend and will look you up when we get over to Ocracoke.

Raz, it doesn't look like you'll be working in that garden anytime soon. Get on over to I-95 and join us.

Al

If you notice the above post picture I had my beach cart hanging out past my storage box. I didn't like that for several reasons. So, a couple days later and a new reversed hitch and now my aluminum cart sits above my box.

That looks precarious to me.. Hopefully it will not come off on the highway and do any harm. Do you know what your rear hitch is rated for? On my Escape it is 100#

I had a professional welder weld the main hitch off the frame. The box is light weight and doesn't have a lot of weight in it; hoses, tarp, exta 30 amp cord and generally outside stuff. The beach cart is aluminum and will only have a couple empty coolers in it. So weight won't be an issue.

Hi Ted,

I'm going to try to stop and say hello on my way down or back from Cedar Island, which is the next island south of Ocracoke (20 miles on the ferry). I'll have a Red F250 and I'll be at Cedar Island from about April 24 (maybe as early as April 21) until about May 7. There's some good (sound) fishing there. There are 2 fish houses, and 2 free boat ramps. There is an accessible oceantype beach on Pamlico Sound on either side of the Cedar Island Ferry Station. We have a rental house and cottage there--Rt. 12 #2604--If you (or any of the FGRV folks) happen to be coming thru, please pull in the driveway and say hello. If you see the Eggcamper--then I'm there or nearby.

We were just there in late March and the grass was starting to grow and things were warming up. The Weather usually starts to get very nice in late April. GL on the Wx & Fishing!

Mark

Hey Mark always welcome meeting FG owners. Rosemary the fishing cart I have is called Reels on Wheels/senior. I purchased it about 6 or 7 years ago. Three years ago I purchased the accessory orange sand tires and axle. Makes it easier to pull through soft sand. I love mine. I also purchased the hitch carrier when I bought it new. I think the cart is cheaper on Amazon. It's a little pricey and the carrier cost almost as much as the cart but will last a life time if you take care of it. "The Reels on Wheels Fishing Cart Sr was designed and manufactured by fisherman who wanted to create the perfect caddy for all of their fishing gear. With its durable frame construction and its optimum axle placement for perfect load balancing, this premium fishing cart was built to last and is the last one you’ll ever need.
Its rust-proof, tubular frame is built with lightweight, high-strength aluminum that can handle anything Mother Nature can throw it. Weighing only 24 pounds, this caddy will easily handle up to 200 pounds of cargo and with its 15” pneumatic wheels (rims are made of durable hard plastic) you can roll through both smooth and rough terrain with ease.
This fishing caddy features 8 aluminum rod holders with vinyl tube covers to keep your rods upright and tangle free. It also features a handy cutting board, a bait basket with cup holder, and even a measurement decal for fish up to 24 inches. The tee bar handle is removable and height adjustable so you can customize it to your needs.
It will allow you to transport and store everything you need for a great day of fishing. You can easily carry an 80 quart cooler, multiple tackle boxes and bait containers, reels, lures, lawn chairs and an umbrella with no problem."
