If I drove on our ocean beaches down in Old Orchard or on Popham Beach, I'd get arrested within minutes. The dunes are "Protected".....

Where I go the "dunes" are protected too. There are specific areas to drive and it will cost you at least $180 one of the beaches and another $60 + for the other.

They also close some parts for nesting birds, sometimes whole beaches. So say you get your beach sticker in advance, there is no guarantee you will get the whole beach to drive on.

For those who know the area people use that as a main road. Needless to say that really held up traffic and ddi not make friend's with the locals that day.
I know where you're talking about, right where the random old wooden posts are sticking out and the house is really close to the water. I saw a pickup truck on street tires get stuck there, helped him out and he got stuck no more than 50ft later. I left

Sounds like the same place. I can't really remember what exactly it looked like other then a really narrow spot and everyone has to go through it to keep driving on the beach. Carolla is so strange, you see dump trucks and ambulances and contractors driving on the beach like it is a road. well I guess it kind of is.

Around here (cencal) we all go to Pismo to drive on the beach and in the dunes. Lots of fun but i really dont think they'll be open much longer. What was an 18 mile beach has been whittled down to about 5 miles over the last few years, on weekends its packed with motor homes and trailers right up to the water. Damn greenies

When we were renting out there, a new house was being built next to ours. We saw a 10 wheel drive concrete mixer, Flatbed delivering plywood and materials, an old retired military transport delivering a gargantuan pool with a trailer.
Industry still survives without paved roads. Even the guy that serviced our hot tub had a 4wd Econoline van.
Those houses didn't build and maintain themselves ya know

I wanna be up there so bad right now. Last time I was up there when it was cold I saw what I thought to be a bag of trash and got out to pick it up....turns out it was a seal. I jumped straight up when he picked his head up and looked at me...was not expecting that from a bag of trash

Anyway, now is the time to start planning when you are going so you can get a good reservation time. I think I am going to start planning tonight so if I end up going around a holiday I know I can get on the boat.

when i have driven there before, i aired down to around 12. biggest thing was just remembering to think ahead, like accelerating and braking gradually instead of sharply
