It was enlightening in several ways.

Turn off your cell phone, take a break from sportsball, chart a course on a forgotten back road, sleep in a tent with no television, and venture out there for a few days alone. You'll be glad you did.

Hey I just clicked onto rallywestva. site and I see it's been cancelled. Did I get the right site and year?
Yes, you saw that correctly, RWV has been canceled for 2014. The organizer pulled out due to some personal commitments. Its very disappointing, but you really can't blame the guy for making a decision between doing whats best for his family, and doing the rally. It really shows that we need more participation in the sport at all levels, be it racers, volunteers, organizers, etc. They extended early registration for Magnum Opus as a consolation, but I'm not allowed to ride yet, so I can't go. I'm supposed to be able to ride again by July, but everything is going really well with the recovery from the last operation, so I will probably be back on the bike in a couple of weeks. Nothing more than putting around at first.

MdFiasco - Thanks for sharing your adventure. Good stuff - close to home too. If you do it again, I'd like to give it a try. Let me know. Cheers

I left my bike in the municipal lot on Ocracoke and had Rudy Austin take me over on his skiff. It cost $60 round trip, but would've been lower if he had other people going over. Totally worth the cost.

I have a good friend who goes to Peninsula Physical Therapy & Aquatic rehabilitation, after having a rather nasty throw from a horse (one of those motorbike-type things with no engine and 4 legs). She speaks highly of them.

Oceana

So hey, does anyone know the story behind all of the "NO TRESPASSING" signs that suddenly popped up at every entrance to the Oceana riding area? I wonder if it was because of that stuck truck I posted a while back. My favorite riding area in the city shut down overnight! I can't figure out why the government would care if folks ride back there. I don't want to face a felony just to ride a cool area, so this truly sucks.

If it were your property, would you want people riding around without permission, disturbing the land, getting things stuck, dumping fluids, possibly getting hurt, etc. on it?

Honestly, I'm surprised nothing has happened yet. But with everything I see posted, I figured it was only a matter of time before they shut it down.
