    we're hitting the Outer Banks of North Carolina tomorrow.......pics to follow. Looks like fun there, Stax. We went there last July, spent the entire week down in Wildwood Crest and made a drive up to OC for an evening.

    We love Ocean City - not having booze is a plus. It's five minutes to Somers Point and you can party on there!

    Real family atmosphere in OC.

    Hey, eat at Uncle Bills Pancakes for us..........Mack and Manko pizza - and, hey, you gotta check out sacko subs.....

    Of course, you've probably already feasted on Johnsons Popcorn and Curlys Fries!

    As a kid we spent a couple summers in Ocean City. They were fun! Then we moved down to Cape May and I liked that a lot too.

    Hot. Crowded. Nicer mid-week if you have the choice.
    We always liked to beat the crowds and save $$ - it's really nice after labor day, but most crowds are gone....

    Also, you can save a little if you are willing to stay inland a bit - they are gonna hit you up big during peak times in OC.

    Green flies are probably worse than water boarding.......

    Everyone should experience them..........just so they are happy they don't have them where they live!

    Basically, it's like this.....
    You are sitting on the beach on a perfect day. The weather, the wind, the company, the view...everything is in sync. All of a sudden one fly lands on you - within a second or two, you feel something like a pin being pushed into your skin. You swat, but miss. A nice red welt forms - while the fly buzzes a bit and then lands somewhere else on you! Basically, you rinse and repeat until either you decide to leave or you kill the fly. They are not too hard to kill - but within a minute or two, another one will sniff you out!

    If you are on the water in a boat or near a marsh, you will have the honor of dozens of them in the boat with you.

    The only thing which can save you is Avon Skin So Soft. But you have to put tons of it on every square inch of your skin.

    Now you know why NJ does not advertise it's green flies.

    Craig, you're exactly right. We had Uncle Bills this morning before we left. Pork roll, egg & cheese on a Thomas' English muffin. Home fries with a side of Habberset Scrapple. Simply delicious. Didn't have Mack & Manko, but did feast a Piccinis (italian restaurant inland) and the famous Crab Trap. Both were great. We always hit up Crab Trap. As for Johnsons & Curlys, we passed them up this time. Instead we snacked on Steele's fudge and Polish water ice. Tasty! Our stay at the Port-O-Call was very nice too. 4 nights (Tues-Fri) was $1,100 for accommodations.
