Hoo RAh! Thank you. There's been so much yap yap yap about how nice they are and how well paved is
their twenty miles of 'bike trail'.
I drove HH once and saw all of the signs. Especially I saw the stop signs on each and every driveway
crossing of the sidewalk/bike path. STOP signs for driveways!
Similarly, I note that another privately owned and gated island that I ride on has recently removed
the last (that I can detect) public notice of its no firearms policy.
