Kudos for hanging in and waiting, We had some problems with our Compass but nothing compared to what you went through. Congrats, safe travels and stay safe, Outer Banks are one of our favorite places to visit and tour

Thanks Man!!

I live next to Camp Lejuene along the intercoastal. It's kinda the bottom of the outer banks. We just fell in love with Cedar Island NC at the Ferry Launch. The camp ground is right on the water! Rustic but we get full hookups! We just paid 600 dollars for a month in the Sept, works at to 22 bucks a day for full hooks, insane cheap!!
Working on a video of the place right now!


Really nice to have the RV back and to be able to go places along the coast!
