and this Dude:
The driver on this trip was me. here I am standing in front of what appears to be a 4000 year old bonsai tree, who knows? (I kept meaning to ask a local what kind of tree this was but never got around to it)
We set up out base camp at "Adventure Bound Campground and International Hostel, in Kitty Hawk. It was a good central location since we would be going both north and south to see everything that was on the agenda.
The extra bonus at this campground was that they had peacocks, just roaming around the campsites. Aside from them being extremely noisy they added quite the unexpected element to this camping trip. Apparently it was mating season for peacocks, lol. Instead of making a clucking or quacking or gobbling noise like i would have imagined, they made a whole array of sounds ranging from a cat in heat to a donkey to even a fire truck (no exaggeration)
More about this in a day or two,...its getting late
