Well, its come and gone. Our 2009 Outer Banks vacation was a success and everyone had a great time. We ran into a small snag just before we left. Our 2007 Honda Odyssey was in the shop the week before to fix a small transmission leak and on the Friday before we left we were told by Honda that it wouldn’t be fixed until the Tuesday AFTER we were supposed to have left. So much for planning ahead!! We ended up driving my Dakota down to NC which was a bit of a squeeze with 5 people but it worked out better in the end. We had the bike rack to bring our bicycles down and we even took the truck on the 4×4 beach twice! The house was beautiful and the weather couldn’t have been better. All in all everyone had a great time. We’ll be heading back next year, that’s for sure.
