check out vrbo.com You can also look up Hatteras Landing Marina. They have really posh apartments and they also have standard hotel rooms. Jed usually puts his place up for rent during that time as well. I'm sure he'll chime in as the tourney approaches.

Re: Travel Logistics, Lodging, etc.

So there is no other way of getting there?
What about "Dare County Regional Airport"?
Can I get flight from "ORF" VA to "MQI" NC?

Thanks

Re: Travel Logistics, Lodging, etc.

That might be a little tough. Is that the airport in Kill Devil Hills? If so, you still have about a 1-1.5hr drive.

In the past people will try to meet up at the airport in norfolk and share a rental car...or meet up with the local VB boys and catch a ride down. There really isn't an easy way to get to Hatteras, but that is part of the charm of this place.

If you have any specific questions feel free to give me a ring.

I'm not sure, but I believe it involves drinking beer, eating pork rinds oh and have a couple of good deep jigging rods handy.
