Travelling through NC

Hello everyone. I'm New here and new to open carry in NC.. I will be taking a trip from Johnston county to the beach this week with my family. Is there anything I should be aware of regarding any OC restrictions other than the commonly known laws. Any help from the more experienced folks here would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

Cherokee Indian Reservation can and does have their own set of firearms laws, separate from what the local, state and Feds do. Probably not an issue if you're just driving through.
