    Hi Gang -

    I saw on NAM where the Portland club did an overnight "Fill the Ferry" run to Orcas Island in the San Juans (one of my favorite places in the world). I started thinking - since it's a little far for us to drive to the San Juans (about 3000 miles each way), I wondered what we could do that would be similarly cool...

    Soooooo..... Let's do a weekend run to Ocracoke!. I'm going to do this April 12-13 since May and June are so busy already with MOTD and the BRP Run.

    Probably have a meet point on the east side of Raleigh (Knightdale or Zebulon) for the Triangle area folks late Saturday morning, and pickup other "down east" folks en route. Piedmont, Charlotte area and western NC folks could drive over early Saturday, or could drive over Friday evening and stay near the Saturday AM meet point. We'll drive down to Swan Quarter, take the ferry across to Ocracoke, spend the night in one of the motels/inns there, take the Hatteras ferry mid-to-late Sunday morning and drive back through Manteo. A great way to see a lot of Eastern NC in a weekend... plus a beautiful sunset & sunrise... plus a couple of ferry rides... of course all club members would be welcome, though Triad (and Charlotte) folks would have to leave a bit earlier and get back a bit later - but that's only fair. ;)

    Optionally, if some folks want to spend an extra night down there, you could choose to either drive down with us on Saturday and come back Monday, or go down on Friday and then drive back with us on Sunday.
