The Facebook event for this meet has been created. It's a private event on Facebook, so I'm not going to bother posting the link here. It is set up, however, where the folks I've invited have the ability to invite others that I'm not Facebook friends with.

If you don't receive the invitation on Facebook due to a) not being on Facebook, or b) being on Facebook but not connected there with anyone in the roadgeek community, no worries. Everyone is still welcome to attend.

The only detail I've shared so far in the Facebook event that I haven't shared here yet is the time of the lunch gathering. We'll gather for lunch somewhere in Nags Head at 11 a.m.  I don't know yet what time we'll gather for dinner in Elizabeth City, but I figure it will be around 7 p.m. I want to reiterate again that I fully expect that, due to the logistics of this meet (the fact that lunch and dinner will be in different cities), some folks will only join for lunch while others will only join for dinner which is totally fine.

Some folks in the Facebook event have expressed a desire to wait until the end of the 2019 hurricane season (and seeing whether OBX sees any hurricane damage) before deciding whether they should attend this meet, which makes sense.

NCDOT is aiming to reopen NC-12 on Ocracoke in November.

I guess Brownlie didn't have to worry (or post) about a thing then.

​OCRACOKE – To facilitate the N.C. Department of Transportation’s paving operation on N.C. 12 on Ocracoke Island, the North Carolina Ferry System is making an adjustment to its Hatteras- Ocracoke Silver Lake schedule beginning Nov. 7.

Starting Nov. 7, the 10 p.m. departure from Hatteras to Ocracoke-Silver Lake and the 12:30 a.m. return trip will be suspended. The new schedule will be as follows:

-Hatteras to Ocracoke-Silver Lake: 6 a.m., 11:15 a.m., and 4:30 p.m.

-Ocracoke-Silver Lake to Hatteras: 8:45 a.m., 2:30 p.m., and 7:15 p.m.

The state Ferry Division is coordinating with Hyde County Schools to accommodate any evening athletic event travel.

No changes will be made to the Swan Quarter, Cedar Island, or Ocracoke-South Dock routes. The ferry schedule change will allow ferries and crews to be available for the staging of asphalt and concrete trucks used in the paving operation.

NCDOT is working to rebuild about 1,000 feet of N.C. 12 that was damaged during Hurricane Dorian in early September. NCDOT expects to reopen N.C. 12 to vehicular traffic on or before the Thanksgiving holiday. However, at this time Ocracoke remains open only to residents, non-resident property owners, and personnel approved by Hyde County Emergency Management.

Scratch that. Hyde County commissioners have voted to lift the Ocracoke visitor evacuation order on December 2 instead.
