(Going To Texas)
Fleeter all packed up and ready to pull out.
The winds picked up the closer we got to North Carolina's Outer Banks. The wind was really whipping us around as we drove across the Wright Memorial Bridge into Kitty Hawk. I layed down as flat as possible across the fuel tank, but it was still difficult to maintain control of Fleeter as the wind gusts came blasting across the water -hitting us broadside. Watching the weather reports later, I learned that the winds were 20-30mph with 40mph gusts. We didn't doubt it a bit! Temps were in the mid 50s.
The wind is so strong that it whips up the water and leaves a frothy foam behind as the waves recede back out to sea.
