Im going to be downsizing into a Cape Cod style home. Starting with all new furnishings. 2 bedroom/1 bath and the upstairs "attic" considered a 3rd bedroom space.

I need a lot of suggestions to make the areas appear larger. The number of oc... [Read Full Post]

Will be down in Waves in July. Can anyone provide an update on ham radio repeaters and activity down there? Last update I saw was back in 2015 from Richard K4HAT. I remember the 145.150 repeater was easily accessed from Waves and the net was on Thursday evening. Thanks in advance Mike K3CXG in Frederick, Maryland.

LAWN MAINTENANCE - Posted By: JeffT453 on 4/23/2021
Hi everyone I’m having a really hard time trying to find a company that can come cut my grass once a month (plus also do some additional trees). Any ideas? I’ve tried Julie’s, 4 Seasons, Tyrell, Outer Banks Landscaping with no luck. Right now I’m thinking I may have to buy a lawn mower and come down once a month to take care of things. They all say they are booked up, overwhelmed, or not t... [Read Full Post]

YOUR VACATION IS _____ DAYS AWAY - Posted By: Kai Avalon on 4/23/2021
Last year, I was just too depressed and resigned to the inevitable to contemplate vacation. As expected, it didn't happen. I have been conservatively hopeful this year will happen. I just signed up for my countdown today. It makes my heart happy to see: Your vacation is 44 days away..... I can't wait

Hi all, Doing my due diligence; I've gone over posts from the past ten years, but I was wondering if there is any new advice. Coming from CT, we have found a great (non-95) route for us to get down to Ocracoke, stopping overnight in the Norfolk area. This year's issue is that my god-daughter is getting married in July on a Friday evening in Alexandria. But this means the dreaded 95, which w... [Read Full Post]

We got take out pizza from Gidgets in June 2020. Was great food, good service and reasonable wait given it was a Saturday and all the (then) new health protocols. Hope to return next year and get more pizza!

JOHN'S DRIVE-IN - New Owners have made delicious improvements
The New Owners have made delicious improvements. For those that gave up going here years ago, like me, the new owners (May 2020) have really stepped up to the plate and upgraded the food and quality. If you are one of those that have been going there, then you will notice the new quality and taste of the food. If you are one, like me, that just avoided the greasy fishy tasting food then you are go... [Read Full Review]

SPANKY'S GRILLE - Good Burgers
This is a great place to eat. It is a no frills establishment with counter service. You order at the counter and your food is delivered to you fresh and hot. The burgers and fries were so good and they had fried okra! I don’t know how they make a profit because the prices are low. This is my new go to place from now on.

I really like this restaurant. It is a no frills place. You walk up to the counter to order. They bring you your food. The prices are low and they have a variety of choices, including fried okra (my favorite). The hamburgers and fries were very good and everyone was so nice. I plan to go back.
