Assateague Island

There are actually <span style="text-decoration: underline"><span style="font-weight: bold">TWO</span></span> parks here!

The Assateague Island <span style="text-decoration: underline"><span style="font-weight: bold">NATIONAL PARK</span></span> is <span style="text-decoration: underline"><span style="font-weight: bold">TOTTALY OFF LIMITS!!!</span></span> to any and ALL MDing! As usual because this is <span style="text-decoration: underline"><span style="font-weight: bold">FEDERAL</span></span> land. Also, your not even <span style="text-decoration: underline"><span style="font-weight: bold">ALLOWED</span></span> to have a MD in your vehicle! If caught you will get a stiff fine for just having it in your vehicle! The ranger told me its hundreds of dollars!

The Assateague Island <span style="text-decoration: underline"><span style="font-weight: bold">STATE PARK</span></span> only allows MDing from Labor Day to sometime before Memorial Day! So from Memorial Day to Labor Day leave your MD's at home. They told me this due to the volume of people on the beach. Also, your only allowed to MD on the beach, no where else!

I went to both Rangers stations to obtain this info.

Yes it is. I was going to hit the beach down near the OSV area. Sure glad I didn't go there. I was told the have no mercy either!

On another note, my 350 worked in the wet sand too. I had to turn down the sensitivity to one bar. Threw a coin in the wet sand, and it worked. Once I got in the dry sand, I turned it all the way up. Being that my machine is not waterproof at the housing I stayed out anyways.
