We packed up and headed south for the 1 1/2 hr drive, which turned into 3 1/2 hrs due to traffic, to OBX, NC. We went into Corolla, NC and hit the beach. It's always nice being able to get out there, enjoy the off the pavement driving and playing at the beach with the family.
There are wild horses out there as well, they are very tame with people, due to all of the travel and tourist I suppose.
I got another picture of them right on the beach by the water but it was dark and the picture came out horrible unfortunately.
Our cargo led light came in handy tonight as well. It illuminated the rear of the jeep enough for my daughter to see what she was doing.
On our way out, we pulled out a stuck FWD chevy traverse, he got himself bottomed out pretty good and deep into some soft sand. I had to pull him about 100ft to get to the harder stuff by the water. The jeep did really well but I had to put it in 4lo, while I was in high I was starting to dig myself in a bit. Overall I'm super happy with how the jeep performed, the 2" RC lift and MLL's made a huge difference in the clearance of the plates. I just have to get some tires!!
Overall it was a great day out. It's too bad that this is the closest thing to off road that we have here, next out is 3 1/2-4hr drive to some good trails. I miss st louis, being able to drive an hour to an awesome play ground off road park.
