Today, I drove about 4-hours from Morehead, NC to Kitty Hawk, NC. Hopefully, everyone knows the significance of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, but in case you don't, it's the place where the Wright Brothers, Orville and Wilbur, became the first men to succeed in a controlled flight in 1903.
The Wright brothers made 4-flight attempts, on that day; the first reaching a distance of 120 feet while the fourth reached an impressive 852 feet and lasted nearly a full minute.
Coming to Kitty Hawk wasn't originally on the itinerary for this trip, but after departing Florida early I decided it was a spot that was definitely worth checking out. Nothing is as surreal as standing at this spot, looking up, and seeing a large jumbo jet soar overhead. It's a true testament to the achievements of mankind and something I think everyone should experience in their lifetime.
Right now, I'm halfway between Kitty Hawk and Atlanta. Tomorrow, I'll meet two friends at their place there where I'll have a couch, a much-needed shower, and a chance to do some laundry and on Friday we're all driving to Lake Jocassee, NC to camp for the weekend. Thanks for tuning in.
