    Just head for Hatteras in the AM and be back in the house by 10AM every day. Wife won't even notice if you get her nice and drunk the night before.

    Also watch out for the Pennsylvania Allstars. I spent a week in Corolla at a beach front house and had a descent break in front of me. No one in sight, until a few PA Allstars showed up and paddle out right next to me.

    Had my best Dolphin experience there as well. Every morning a pod of Dolphins would circle me and the younger ones would come within a foot or two.

    Also PJB is right, bring some greens.

    Ya, that's been my view of it over the years. Go there to get drunk and/or drive on the sand in Corova, but never really went there to surf. Growing up in VB, I can spot those Outer Banks "locals" pretty easily. They have pink OBX decals next to the stick figures of their family and one for the dog too. Usually a Pittsburgh Steelers or Ohio State sticker somewhere as well.

    I see the OBX stickers all the way down here in the Tampa Bay area too, accompanied by the stick figures and dog as you mentioned, maybe even a Salt Life decal if you're lucky.

    That's funny you say that. The 2nd part of the definition for Salt Life in the Urban Dictionary pretty much nails it:

    1. Salt Life

    Originally a sticker on the back of cars used to denote a surfer, bodyboarder, or general beach bum whose life centered around the ocean or related beach going activities. Ever seen a 32 year old man whose primary activity was surfing and working on his tan? That person would have a salt life sticker.

    Unfortunately the trend spread to senior citizens, wanna be hipsters, soccer moms, and other persons wishing to inform the world that yes, they too have visited the beach at some point in life and they have the sticker to prove it.

    Pretty much, they got the board shorts at every "surf shop" in town too, it's hilarious

    Alright this is too funny I gotta weigh in here. Even up here in New England you see the OBX stickers(as described, complete w/ stick family) all over the place. Salt Life is big too, and over the fourth I was at a beach/fireworks/party deal and one of the residents' truck was reppin' salt life hard, multiple stickers, and dude even had the Maori safe passage charm necklace. I mean, if that's not core, I don't know what is.

    Now looky here........I'm jaded and always want substances to accentuate the experience, though I'm not allowed to have them these days. But I keep dreaming. I will herbalize again one day. I just have to keep my urine pure right now(no, I'm not on probation, it has to do with a career change) and I have to hook up with a new crew.

    I exiled myself from my old associates and I refuse to deal with the old drunk, coke head weed dealers I once knew or the younger, "speak more ghetto than those who actually live in the ghetto" Lil Wayne types I knew. See, I now have some principles or principals. I'll go without before I go back to them guys. And I stay off the streets these days, too.

    Anywayswho, don't get me wrong Corolla can be good fun with the proper mindframe and given that it is just a week long excursion. You can get high and go to the old Corolla Village area and take yourself back to the 1800's. If you can do that without herbal enchantment, great. The eatearies/bars always offer up some people watching entertainment, plus you can talk to people from all sorts of locales, which gives you new prespectives on life......maybe...maybe not.

    I don't know what VA Beach is like, but NJ's beaches are a police state. Everything's illegal. Shoot I think they tried to ban chicken wings in Surf City.....and footballs. So of course alcohol is illegal. But in Corolla you are free man. Shoot, they have two Currituck Sherrifs that cruise RT 12 once in a while. And on the beach you can drink and eat chicken wings.

    Even the neighborhoods are kind of cool to walk around especially at night. I just love the salt water-weathered trees and bushes there. They got character. Spooky looking like Scooby Doo and the Mystery Machine. The beach is killer at night.

    Oh Lighthouse Bagels has the best bagels, man. Their bagel sandwiches are the cat's meow. Straight up.

    And the locals I'm refering to are the younger ones. Straight out of high school or college with the "OUTER BANKS DREAM." They've vacationed there, so now it's going to become home. They instantly become JOE LOCAL as soon as they land their first bartending or waiter gig. OMG, they've been there forever. Then they deal with a winter there and go running home or realize that fancy Bucknell degree doesn't do them much good in friggin Kitty Hawk. Ahh the dream dies....and it dies hard.

    Have a good time and hope right up the street from your pad has a decent sandbar.

    Whenever I see salt life stickers I assume they actually say "slut life"
