Chris and Matt discuss the different meanings of the term “dynamic”.  Chris notes that the phrase “from Murphy to Manteo” does not even reach to the easternmost point of Dare County (which isn’t even on Bodie Island, the island sitting directly east of Manteo).  Matt express his preference to live in less populated times, an opinion immediately dismissed by Chris.

Chris notes that the famous Lost Colony wasn’t even the original lost colony on Roanoke Island.  Matt wonders how similar the show Lost is to the mystery of the Lost Colony. Chris notes that while the Indian Manteo may have been a Lord, he was not a Lord Proprietor. Chris gives Matt naming advice for when he buys a boat.  Matt is tempted by the Mother Vine.

Matt and Chris could not find any brews from the Outer Banks Brewing Station, so we toast Dare County with beers from Burial Brewing Company.  After getting over the packaging Chris throws back a Surf Wax while Matt enjoys a Gang of Blades.

Diggers Dungeon

Chris and Matt toast Currituck county with a Weeping Radish Octoberfest brew from North Carolina.

Chris dispels the notion of an island named Bodie. Matt takes particular notice of how peninsula is (not in fact) spelled.  Matt is blown away by Currituck’s county seal.

The LPs make another appearance on the County Boys via Currituck County’s predecessor Albermarle County which is named after George Monck, 1st Duke of Albermarle and a Lords Proprietor.

Currituck Beach lighthouse

Matt is overjoyed to learn that the town (or unincorporated community) of Currituck is located in Currituck County- and is the county seat. Chris shines some light on Fresnel lenses and Currituck Beach Lighthouse.

Matt may or may not unearth the birthplace of one of the most successful cars the Toyota Corolla.

Chris gets super excited about the Digger’s Dungeon, home to one of the most popular monster trucks Gravedigger.
