Grand Challenge Route Closure

DARPA exclusion zone

DARPA has prohibited teams participating in the 2005 Grand Challenge from performing test runs over the 2004 route. From the addendum to the rules:

The Bureau of Land Management has registered a number of complaints with DARPA regarding the damage Grand Challenge teams have done to the environment in this area. If these activities continue, DARPA risks the loss of its permit to conduct the 2005 Grand Challenge.

Apparently someone was concerned about the turtles after all.

So if they got their clearances last year on four routes (If I recall the EIS, see comment in ), then it means the course is going to be on one of the three other routes not used last time. They said they would put traps. Hopefully, t'em traps are big enough.
