    CB North end

    Anyone been up there lately? i.e. post Labor day? Coming down this weekend, trying to decide if we're gonna camp or just stay at Monkey Junction w\ friends. Crowds should have died down, but always a crap shoot on the N End with drunken rednecks. Just wondering if anyone has been up there on a weekend lately and how the crowds have been.

    No biggie if we just stay at MJ, but I do love waking up on the beach and just grabbing a board and paddling out. That and the stars at 3AM on a clear fall night.

    Don't paddle out without a trucker hat.

    You'll be fine, dude. It has thinned out a lot within the last few weeks, but you definitely won't be alone out there. If anything, there is always the South End (not WB).

    Thanks guys...yeah I know it's a crap shoot on the N End but should be a lot thinner, although it gets overtaken by fishermen sometimes once fall hits. Didn't have any issues the last couple years, esp. if we can get the whole crew out, we'll have 3-4 trucks and can block off a section around the tents.

    dlrouen - is the S end open for driving/surfing/camping? Last I checked it was open for fishing only, but that was in spring.

    No camping or booze on Ft. Fisher... stupid ass state park rules.

    Great place to fish and surf, though.

    Don't forget to pack your jorts if you're going CB.

    Good info on the South End - thanks, Erock.

    I would definitely make an effort to camp out on the North End this weekend because there has been a lot of political talk lately about needed changes to help keep the park cleaner and safer. These changes may or may not affect camping, booze, boobs, surfing; but you never know. Personally, I think BIG changes are coming to the North End, so enjoy it while you still can.

    I hope you have an awesome trip, tlokein.

    Thanks Erock, good info. The no booze rule is tough, but I can be discreet. As for the rest of my crew...I doubt it. Last time I drive there you could only go about half way down though. I'll see if I can find out if you can drive all the way to the point now, would be a nice change of pace if we don't camp.

    Mad Dog - I always wear my daisy duke overalls. Between that, the trucker hat, my knife, and my ear necklace I let people know I'm not to be trifled with.

    dlrouen - as much as I abhor rules and regs I can say it wouldn't hurt a bit if they just enforced some common sense rules. Maybe let all the nut jobs go up the point where they can whoop it up all night long. That way I won't have to hit people over the head with a shovel when they stand outside my tent at 2am yelling for their buddy Bob. (I love my shovel...it's both a weapon and a destroyer of evidence...). And thanks for the positive vibe, as long as the weather cooperates it will be good times.

    I just hope they don't start trying to turn it into WB...
