While in the Outer Banks visitors should make time to visit the Wright Brother's memorial.  There is an entrance fee of $4 per Adult over 16 y/o but children are admited for free.

After you have finished seeing the stones to note the distance of the first 4 flights head south to this location and you will find yourself on the south side of the memorial.  Find one of the two namesakes of this area and locate the inscription on the side of the base.  The password for this cace would be Paul's last name.

I was in the area and decided to grab a few smilies. My group of 8 included one cacher. Me. After making the hike and gaining the needed info,we headed back down the hill. Sorry I didn't have time to get the other one nearby.

Awesome memorial, great virtual!! I don't wan't to refer to the nearby one on Geocaching.com as lame or anything, but this virtual does speak for itself! I'm an admin for the website, by the way, and I'm very sorry I didn't get to another single OCNA cache in the OBX (most of them yours). It takes much longer (2 hours) to get there from Virginia Beach than I expected, and I had a later than expected start. I guess I'll just have to come back. Thanks for creating the cache.

Finally here.  We have a local favorite cache in Charlotte, 12 seconds that changed the world, based on the events here.  

Had to find at least a couple OCna caches while in an area that has some that were not hidden by myself.   Thanks for participating in Alternative Geocaching.
