been one of the
first to travel NC 12
after Isabel
Washouts on

Dunes spread
over NC 12
More washouts More washouts Many obstacles
lay between the
team and T3
Like endless
road clearing
Inching down

Tales from local
residents
A new inlet
is born
The northern team
stands by the
washout
disconnecting
Hatteras Village
from the Outer
Banks
The first of two
bulldozers that
pulled T3
through the
loosely packed
sand deposited
by storm surge
Snatch Rope.
Don't leave
home without it
The trailer
shoveled too
much sand for
the Powerstroke
The FCMP deflated
the tires for added
traction but to no
avail
The wind left
the sand highly
aerated, making
it impossible
to pull
The machine
operator pulled
us completely
through this
washout
Almost clear
Ready to be
unhooked.
Thanks guys!
Road crews told us
that the upcoming
stretch of road
would be the greatest
adversity
The beginning of
the worst stretch
Guess we aren't
going home
tonight
We unhooked
the tower to
survey the road
conditions (and
pulled a sheriff
out, too)
The gloaming hours We asked the
road crews to
provide a pull.
Here we are
chaining the
M-Truck
Away we went
through
water
and
darkness
