    don't forget the directions

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: Unless you are one of those techies with the GPS whodingies, then you are going to need maps and an area guide. Rand McNally has some of the better (more accurate) maps of the Carolinas amd Frommers has a top-of-the-line guide to what to see and do. An they take up a lot less room and cost a lot less than those electronic gadgets.

    If you are in AAA, then you can get the maps from them but their guides are not as good as Frommers. Barnes and Nobles bookstores have a good selection of maps and guides.

    Pack for all weathers

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You won't need any fancy clothes here (unless you plan on staying in a very upmarket hotel) but you do need to pack a variety of clothing to cope with the very mixed weather. In our two weeks in July we had quite a bit of rain but also some hot and sunny days. So pack layers, bring a waterproof jacket, and include good walking shoes for hikes and flip flops for the beach.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You'll be able to buy most things, but don't forget your prescription medicines as always, and insect repellent and sun screen will also be useful.

    Miscellaneous: If you're driving you'll need a good road map - we used the AAA one which includes useful city plans

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Be sure you have asthma medication at hand if you are bothered by ciggarette smoke! Jesse Helms has seen to it that every child is introduced to the cancer sticks before they're out of their playpens.

    Luggage and bags: Any type will do, but the best kind to bring anywhere is one you can carry by yourself!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Depending on where you're headed, bring a jacket and warm clothes for the mountains, a bathing suit for the beach, hiking shoes for the woods, etc.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You can buy just about anything you need in local stores.

    Photo Equipment: Bring the best kind you've got, because we have lots of beautiful and idyllic natural scenery.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There are many campsites available all over the state, but make sure you bring a water-proof tent, because you never know when there might be a shower or two.

    Miscellaneous: Bring a smile!:)

    Packing List

    by susanm3860 Written Aug 24, 2002

    Luggage and bags: Take enough clothes for a week. All the houses have washers and dryers.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take easy walking shoes and beach shoes, summer clothing and some warm clothing as the nights can be cool and it is windy there.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I would take the usual alcohol, band aids, peroxide, etc. The nearest hospitals are not so close. Just Dr's offices on the outer banks. Don't forget the toothpaste, hair dryers, and that sort of thing.

    Photo Equipment: Definately a video camera and still camera. Make sure you take extra batteries, and charge up the video batteries before you leave the house. You don't want to miss that great shot of the sunset. There are plenty of stores down there to buy batteries.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Plenty of camping facilities all over the place down there.
