I rode the BRP this morning - while I could
I'm fortunate to live close to a nice section of the Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP to hipsters like me) and on some mornings like today, I'll ride up to see the sunrise. Today was kinda so-so, not worth the flash memory.
Anyways after I got to the office, the nice people on a local radio station mentioned that if the Government shuts down, so will the BRP. Locally, this could put a major dent in our tourist economy. I might take another ride now, while I still can.
I don't really want this to become a political thread but hey, this is the internets, so it'll be what it'll be.
Just be forewarned, if it's closed, it will be gated and closed to pedestrians and bicyclists as well. There may be nobody there to enforce the closure, but who wants to take the chance on being hassled by disgruntled Park Rangers.
