No contest, ORF is the closest with commercial service. I've used it several times to access the OBX, and I bank on 1 hr 35 min from the destination in Southern Shores, about 10 min from the E end of the Wright Mem Bridge. PHF is the next closest, though I don't believe WN serves it. The drive from RDU, haven't done it myself, but I'm betting 4 hours or so. One slight advantage to RDU would be lesser traffic accessing the OBX from the west rather than the north.
Thanks. ORF it is.
