I believe that the judge's ruling will add one more species to the endangered list-tourists that enjoy the great fishing and beach access that ORV permits. Our family spent a week in Hatteras Village in August 2011 and much of our enjoyment centered around trips to a remote area known as The Point to fish and enjoy fabulous sunsets. 2012 finds this area closed to ORV and therefore not accessible. We traveled the extra miles on OBX to get to Hatteras and the less frenzied pace. Will we return in 2012 with the existing restrictions? Probably not!
