At some point over the next few days NC Hunt and Fish will be migrating to a new server. We are not changing our hosting provider, but we are changing machines within that provider. The reason is that an external vendor, cPanel, has increased the price of their software and we need to migrate to a different control panel.
When the migration occurs, the site will be unavailable and it will remain unavailable until the DNS servers are populated with the new IP address. This could take a day, but usually happens overnight.
Once the site goes down you should clear your cookies and cache in your browser so you no longer attempt to connect to an old instance. Instructions will be posted on the old server so people who are stuck there will know how to find the new server.
I remember staying at the same Cape Pines Motel back around the mid-70's as well. Still looks pretty much the same today as it did back then. Remember when the Red Drum Tackle was just a Texaco station with 2 gas pumps out front, 2 garage bays that they sold bait out of one and worked on vehicles in the other, and sold some tackle out of the lobby. Connors Market was just a 25x75 or so steel building that sold beanie-weenies, Vienna sausages, crackers, nabs, bread, some sandwich meats, drinks, some tackle, ands their homemade lures. There wasn't very many places to eat around there, a burger, hotdog, sandwich shop just below the Red Drum and the old Lighthouse Restaurant across from the Cape Pines Motel. If the weather was to bad to fish, you could go up to Avon where they had a 2 bay movie theater in a big steel building around where the Food Lion shopping center is today. I think that marina in the video may have been the old Efraim's Marina down in Hatteras Village and is Teachs Lair. That video brought back a lot of old memories of the way Buxton and Hatteras used to be.
