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.
4) The time used is when we cross S-Turns and the first house on HWY 12 once we reach Rodanthe/Mirlo Beach.
5) Top guess will win a prize.
6) Game ends once we reach our destination.
7) 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.

Between Facebook and emails, I have about 25-30 guesses so far. Amazing that years ago, almost all guesses were on this forum and the Chicago forum.

Keep the guesses coming.

If anyone had the pleasure to follow our traveling nightmares on Facebook, you'll know we were almost a full day late getting to Cape Hatteras.

Our arrival time was SUNDAY morning at 5:54 AM EST. If anyone guessed that exact time, you can have my truck. Otherwise, the next closest will win.

Back later with the winning results.

Bob

Winner of the contest was Dave Raven via Facebook.

*****Surprise this year is the value of the prize. Much more than previous years.

Only one winner this year due to the higher than normal price tag on the give away.

Brand new Soloshot. Price is $499.00.

Winning time was 5:10. I'm assuming PM, but if Dave meant AM, then Manny would have been the winner.

If I was Dave, I'd say PM of course.

Lucky you Dave. I love my Solo shot. It takes a little setup but once its going you get much better footage than any still positioned camera. And you don't need anybody to man it :)
