Re: ANF closed due to Government shut down?
Well, they have closed down the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The lighthouses are closed. The guarded beaches are closed. The ramps to drive onto the beach are closed. The campgrounds are closed. They have even posted signs that you are not allowed to park on the shoulders of Rte 12 and walk onto the beach. Can't surf fish from the beaches. Reports from friends in the area indicate that NPS is trying to shut the beaches down in the towns of Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Buxton, Frisco and Hatteras as they are technically part of the National Park, and not property of the towns.
So, yes. I could see a scenario where they would try to shut down the ANF is it's entirety. Glad to see they are not using such draconian actions up North.
Holy Cheese and Crackers!
