Finally made it to Wilmington

Finally made it to Wilmington - figured I'd drop a line and see if anybody knows of some good spots to go wheeling in the area.

The north carolina guard has a small training facility on the beach in Ft. Fischer, and they'll be doing an exercise for a few weeks in early Nov. I will be heading out there Nov8th in my 110. Maybe I'll see you in the area. Ft. Fischer has the beach you can drive on with a 4x4.

Hey Guys- thanks for the invite, but I am going to be out of town for work until Saturday this week. Have to take a rain check on wild wings, but the weekend is a possibility - what are you guys planning?

Yeah Bryan - you may have seen my girlfriend out driving around last week in like the wrightsville / ogden area. The bumper is an ARB its rollin' on 37s...it also has numerous rock scrapes and dents - so its fairly easy to identify.

Glad you held onto that truck Chip. If I could have worked a little more out, I would have bought it when you were trying to sell it.

Yeah - I was glad that I ended up keeping it too. I almost sold it before my last deployment, but ended up just putting it in storage - well worth the trouble of storing it.

Now that it's going to be sticking around for a while I am even contemplating making it a diesel...it'll probably be a permanent addition to the family once that happens though.
