1200 miles of OBX memories

Had a week off the busy 2019 racing schedule and took a ride with the wife to the Outer Banks in NC for a few days. The X5 performed flawlessly. This puts almost 5000 miles on her this month alone after our run to Niagara Falls and Toronto a few weeks ago!

We started out up at the top of the Banks in Corolla looking for the wild hoses and running around in the sand. We were amazed how well the X5 took to the sand.

One of the highlights was taking the ferry from Hatteras to Okracoke Island. The ferry ride is about an hour so we watched movies in the X5 with a view of the ocean.
