We loaded our truck onto a two-car ferry belonging to the Alger G. Willis Fishing Camps for the 30-minute crossing to the South Core Banks. It just doesn't get any more off-road than this--bobbing across the Core Sound on a woodframe ferry. Our captain was Ronnie Willis, whose grandfather started the ferry business in the early '50s. Today the company is a concessionaire for the National Park Service and is the only authorized carrier allowed to transport vehicles to the South Core Banks.
