Outer Banks ORV Use Settlement Complete

The ORV use settlement was made public yesterday. For a complete wrap-up of the details see the Island Free Press's coverage. From the wavesailing perspective the biggest hurdle will be bird and turtle nesting and closures surrounding those areas. Be sure to check out the map coverages. Looks like Oregon Inlet may not have as many trucks parked out there this summer!

UPDATE: 4/22/08 James' Blog has an excellent post from the pro-enviro side. Overall, we should all be pro-enviro though responsible management...

Thanks for the info, Bill. The Island Free Press coverage is good. My personal viewpoint on this, as a scientist and environmentalist, is that only emergency vehicles should be allowed on obx beaches. That's probably not a popular stance here, but I've tried to defend it on my blog.

What happens when the NPS will not let you Kite Surf in the areas you want to land or launch from?

It's not just ORV it all access!

You should educate yourself before making a statement!
