Thread: Beech to the Beach Fly-In/Campout

    Beech to the Beach Fly-In/Campout

    We will join the VA/NC Pilots Assoc and Fly-In to Cape Hatteras' Billy Mitchell Airport (KHSE) on May 2 at noon. The beach is within walking distance and we will arrange some way to get to the lighthouse for those that are interested. Also, you may leave that afternoon or camp out on the beach. The campground is in easy walking distance of the airport. I will bring my "Compound." This consists of an Easy Up tent, sleeping tent, camp chairs, table and grill. (yes, it will all fit in the plane!) We will grill out for dinner so bring whatever you want to throw on the grill and your favorite beverages. I will post more about camping reservations as they are firmed up.

    Mary and I have it on the calendar. There is noway she is camping! not happening! I'm checking for local rooms so we can overnight then take off the following morning.

    Her exact quotes were....."I'm not sleeping with any bugs and cabins do count as camping since there is no 24 hr room service" My princess......she cracks me up.

    Mary and I are thinking about spending a few days in Nags Head and coming to Billy Mitchell for the day then heading back to Nags Head. We stay at the Surfside, always great service and clean rooms. http://www.surfsideobx.com/


    Here is what I found near Billy Mitchell Field.

    This should be a great trip! For me this is close enough to be my frequent lunch run. I will see what is on my schedule if I successfully complete my current snowboarding trip in the Alps.

    I have camped at the park next to the billy Mitchell airport, nice park. Shower is a good place to cool off on a hot summer day.

    Here is the link to the campground. Make your reservations here. You pick out your campsite once you're there. We'll coordinate when we get there.
