I've no idea what's causing this mesh issue. I get a ctd every time I look at a Stormcloak camp from maybe 100 yards away. I get the same report when entering the Palace of the Kings through the front door, or when looking at the center of the room near the throne.
I'd be happy to post load order if anyone can offer to give me a lead.

Sometimes it'll be two actor heads, it's been all races and both male and female. I can walk backwards to get it marked on my map, but as soon as I look at where the campfire usually is, the game crashes. Same thing happens when I try to fast travel to these locations.
