I'd try to find some contacts within NASA to get a hold of.
Yes, I'm trying to talk to some folks at NASA that surf. I'm sure I'll be able to find a few like minded people, but wanted to check it out on here.
It takes a certain person to live here. Be prepared to see way less people in a day. This place is so desolate aside from the high season and weekends it makes you wonder how people live here at all.
I love it, however. And the surf has been epic many a time here.... Not to mention OC is a short drive when the conditions call for the drive.
I always wanted to visit that area when I lived in VA. I only got to drive through, but didn't stop. It seems like a beautiful and quiet part of the East coast, which is something I like. Good luck to you. Engineering positions on the coast are not easy to find.
I grew up in a very small town, and liked it at the time. I am unsure how I will like it now. I've never been to Snow Hill, I'll have to check that out too.
Last century, I was in a supply house I was talking about getting a boat and giving it a go with the owner who fishes. He says it's extremely sharky around there with the fish processing plants and such. told me you can get a whole fish in your boat.
I own some property down in that area by Wallops but I have never done anything with it. It is really dead down there especially in the winter. I would give it a go for a couple years but be prepared to have an exit strategy. This is not where you want to set up shop for the rest of your life.
If you ever have time and are on the ES, there's some cool crap on the side roads. If you take you very first right out of the toll there's a butterfly garden. But beyond that, there's an old cannon battery you can explore. there's stairs that you can climb and get a panoramic view of the marsh and ocean. there's tons of critters. there's a boat ramp further down the road if you got a vehicle to access the break at fishermans Island. there's a placard at the battery that said FI was a place they quarantine people before going into port. you sure didn't want to sneeze during that leg of the trip.
