Cape Hatteras arrival time contest - Leaving this Friday.

Post by Bob » Thu Oct 03, 2013 9:25 pm

Here we go....contest time for the closest guess for our arrival time in Cape Hatteras.

I'll give some info to help.

1) Our best guess for leaving is around 1:00 - 3:00 PM Friday April 25th 2014.
2) There is an hour time difference. It's one hour earlier in OBX.
3) We have to stop in Chicago to pick up Adrien. It's right on the way though.
3) The time used is when we cross S-Turns and the first house on HWY 12 once we reach Rodanthe/Mirlo Beach.
4) Top guess will win a prize.
5) Game ends once we reach our destination.
6) One guess per person.

In the past, it's taken about 19-22 hours to drive.

Good luck and we've actually had riders guess the exact time of arrival.
