i think the roads in carteret have improved slightly. most of the main ones anyways. i grew up down there so i def. agree with you that the roads in many ways are bad. but MD has its fair share of crappy roads. just can't wait to get down there. im thinking about going up by nc state on sunday if anyone wants to meet up.
Word, I grew up in Havelock off of US 70 between New bern and Morehead. Good stuff. The roads in those areas have been pretty shitty as far as I can remember. Sadly I live out in Kentucky now. Very sad
