Poacher....I'm with you 100%.

Of course there are tons out houses up and down the line in the tri-cities and Avon, but there's a special thing about the location in Mirlo Beach. You can hit NE and NNE winds better there than anywhere south (except the Frisco area) for the most part for riders who don't want to go ocean side. The house we rent in my opinion is one of the absolute best anywhere and has a lot of advantages that are hard to find anywhere else on the island. Trust me, I've researched a LOT of houses all over.
Grass rigging (really hard to find). Shallow water (easy to find). Deep water (hard to find) near life saving station for foiling and just a great place to ride twin tips and foiling all in one area. 6 bedroom and not expensive (super hard to find all of these in one house anywhere). Love OBX and just wish the bridge was built above the current road and then once past the last house, then they could extend it out into the sound and up from there. The businesses who operate there deserve a permanent solution, but the current Jug Handle will unjustly affect the Mirlo Beach home owners and renters.

Poacher....we are there Oct 13th - 27th and I agree that it should still be good to go, but you never know. Look us up if you are coming either of those weeks. You know where we are.

Yeah Bob thanks for the invite! We were looking at ticket prices last night. They are pretty reasonable right now. So if we can get our work schedules and vacation times on the same page, you may have a few other Wisconsinites knocking at your door. (with a case of Yuengling.) :thumb:
