On my second trip to the Outer Banks in May 2011, I got a flat tire very late at night and was forced to pull over into a vacant rental house driveway.

I spent the night sleeping in my car while these photos were being taken...I have no idea who owns this house, but thank you for allowing me to rest in your driveway.
