Does anyone else out there know of stations that carry it?
thats the one I go to for my non-ethanol needs.

theres also one in gulf breeze proper that sells lower octane "boat gas" which is just non-ethanol.

Gatlin Lumber's gas station has it as well but they are higher.

Does anyone else out there know of stations that carry it?

yes the BP on Escambia Bay..... on the south corner of I-10 and Scenic Hgwy (SR 90) has it.....think its 89 octane like old leaded regular

Y'all might try the site below; it is good all over the U.S. The link below is just for Florida. You should check the "details" for any station you are interested in, and maybe even call before you go, as at least one (the one in Cantonment) was out of business, and you don't want to drive too far out of your way and find NO gas... also lists the octane which is also important for some vehicles.

Non-ethanol is also better for your tractor, weed-eater, lawnmower, and of course boats. If you have access to marine fuel, it should all be non-ethanol, but it will normally be more expensive. Sherman Cove on NAS Pensacola has it, 89 octane I believe at a reasonable price...

I have a 30-gallon portable tank, I WILL be fillin' that bitch up!!

I wish you could come too Vic.
YOU are our nucleus and you WILL be missed!

Safety is such a issue at work that I've found it has carried over into everyday activities.
Find myself thinking about somebody getting hurt far from home deep in the woods.
I wanna have fun and hoping everybody has a good time too, but will keep safety in mind and not get hurt this weekend.

Rick, I'm hoping to perfect these 2 routes this weekend.
You've pretty much got what I have.
Only changes are at 2 places in the southern loop.

Gonna miss you too Rick and your hugs.

Cheaha campsites

I think/believe our group may have enough campsites reserved to handle any riders who want to save the daily "FEES". I talked to Dan Walker & he has reservation for a campsite as well as I did for him & I weeks ago.That makes 5 empty spots(two on his,three on mine) for others who want to hobo on, PM me or call eight/five/zero-two/zero/seven-two/four/six/eight.
Park rules say up to 4 people each campsite then additional FEES required, but we have stretched the limit before w/o hassle. I'm thinking/believe that anyone who has'nt planned on coming or don't have campsite reserved yet, come on up & save your rebel bucks & jump on one of our sites.
Looks like Dan will be riding with or bringing "THE" Randall Baker in one load, I told him that I would drive up solo so he could make sure he get's there, so tag team road trip w/few & far between RB.
Looks like good weather for us, only 20% rain chance Fri according to my horny toad, coldest will be 34 sat-nite/sunday morn. (weather underground)

Latest word on camping at Cheaha

Forrestrider has arrived at Mt. Cheaha awhile ago and was informed that campground 2 was for travel trailers/motorhomes.
Hope that isn't so and that tents will be allowed in there.

In case its true, I guess we'll camp on top of the mountain like we use to or if thats not possible, we'll hit campground 3 down by the lake.

Nothin like a bit of confusion to add some adventure to our outing.

To get the word straight from the horse's mouth, call Kevin now @
251-seven four seven- five two nine one.

Southeast Regional Fly In/Evergreen, AL

For any local folks not making the Cheaha trip (myself included, as we have a ball game in Abbieville tomorrow night), Middleton Field, located just west of I-65 on US 84 in Evergreen is hosting the annual fly in.

Hundreds of planes, good food and fun times.

Planes start arriving tomorrow and will be there through Sunday. I"m going out there Saturday afternoon and will probably bomb around the local back roads a bit afterwards.

If you just need a place to ride and something to do, here's an option.
