Is this a reward for the state going for Trump? For his security? I have been through those areas, but I remember little of it. Is this a siginificant inconvience? Local knowledge please.

It's a temporary one, not hugely restrictive and would be instituted for any high level official, even foreign ones.

Greetings,
Is this the shape of things to come with the eventuality of ALL of the navigable waters being restricted I wonder?

It's a temp restriction...very common.

Heck, a huge chunk of the Chesapeake is restricted all year.

They can completely shut down the ICW for hours at Camp Lejune any day they choose.

This is a insignificant event for all but the land owners in Zone 1.

Much ado about nothing.

Heck! Earlier this year Obama came to Tampa for a campaign event. They shut down the main interstate highway through town right in the middle of rush hour to accommodate him. Nobody (outside of Tampa commuters) cared, or even noticed.

Is this any different? NO! Other than, maybe, the fact that this is much less intrusive.

That is SOP. They shut down IH 30 for Dick Cheney back in 06 for him to have a speaking engagements. Dont just lay that on Obama.

Hell, I just wish they restrict the 5' wake throwers. Last night first night sleeping in a bed in 15 days.

Where ever any President is the traffic is restricted, just be glad you can't afford to live next door to who ever is in office. Looks to me this restriction can be sailed around.
Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate.

Call me an old grump, but I dislike any such closures and diversions. Philly hosts its share of VIPs and rolling closures of I 95 and I 76 as well as city streets are quite common. Philly also hosts athletic events along either side of the Schuylkill River so the Kelly and West River Drives are often closed. Benjamin Franklin Parkway, harrumpf!

We manage to survive here; Philly's a small town. Trump's motorcade causing the closing of the Lincoln Tunnel so that he could go to NJ to meet Romney, not to mention the ongoing knot around his office tower has gotta' be far worse. Harrumpf, Trumpf!

OTOH, I used to live just down the street from where former governor of DE, Mike Castle, lived. Rockford Road was never ploughed more quickly or better!

It has been my experience that those that live within zone 1 will be vetted for a security clearance and authorized to operate.

From what I understand it will only happen when he's in residence. When Tricky Dick was Prez he had a place on Key Biscayne (Miami) and there was a 24/7/365 security zone around his waterfront home with at least one full time boat on patrol. It was marked on NOAA charts and they were pretty good about chasing people out of there, don't ask how I know

Of course. Exactly the same as this temporary security zone cannot be laid on Trump. It is SOP. That was the whole point of my post.

You'll have to forgive Mule as he's been on a pretty potent script for painkillers lately.

Last time I took what he was prescribed my wife found me laughing in the living room and asked me what I was doing. Asked her "what did it look like? Watching cartoons of course". She then told me the TV had been off for hours.

I came through there yesterday. It will be an inconvenience but not the end of the world.
