Hey I decided on my trip for this year - a week in the Outer Banks (Nags Head I believe). My dad told me he rented a house for a week in the end of June, so that's where I will be. Kinda sucks because I got 'super cool emo floor seats' to see Dashboard Confessional and have to sell them on ebay now .

So if anyone is from the Outer Banks or going to be there during the week of June 22nd let me know so we can make some plans to meet-up.

Also if anyone has gone there before any must see sights would be awesome. I was there about 4 years ago and mainly stayed to the beach. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good group to go horseback riding with, I feel like doing that for some reason, lol.

Well thanks for reading - Amber

Well, Amber, my best friend takes his family there every other year or so, and loves it. Explore some of the little seaport stuff, too, like Okracote (sp?). Lots of cool little places there, from what I understand.

I'll be down that way a few weeks later...my parents rented a condo in Hilton Head for a week, the first part of August. So, unfortunately, I'll just miss you.

Sorry about the concert...

I used to live in Morehead City, NC (great name, yeah?) which is the state port, right in the middle of everything. I can't remember the name of the island that's right outside of Morehead...it's totally escaping me, but the island is full of wild ponies that have been there for generations. It's pretty big, and uninhabited, and the ponies run around in these big herds, it's really amazing to get up on a dune and watch them. I made it out there a bunch of times on my sea kayak when I lived out there, but I'm sure there are other ways. Also, if you end up going to Morehead, eat at The Sanitary, the restaurant. It's awesome...and be sure to get some salt-water taffy.

Also, the lighthouse and the beach at Cape Lookout (it's a park, so you can't stay there unless you camp overnight) are pretty cool, worth a trip.

Hope that helps. Party on Garth Party on Wayne.
