bogs and bolders is definatley not the place for our crowd. there really didnt seem like anywhere to open up the bike. sure there were a couple small dirt bikes puttin around but its more a family atv type place- and any other thing that has 4 wheels. i dont remeber getting out of first gear. the fan was on most if the ride trying to cool off. you never know what kind of off road machine is around the corner. we were on a trail until met face to face with a bronco. lol it would be alot funner to just putt around on an atv and get muddy...if you could ride atvs in BW it would be better.

Had a fantastic time today getting back in the groove with the gang! Great job keeping us safe today Vico!! Enjoyed meeting some new folks, Bartohob, SR56, and Brett (?).

Rotorhead and I found about 1/3 or so of what was left of Mossy Head, and did a little tree carving. Man, I am definitely rusty on the ST, but RH was cookin' it!!

All in all a very good day--not too hot and no injuries. Life is good!

Good to see you again. I too loved the 2smoker smell... days gone by

Three n00bs and three oldies... it was a good mix.

Ha! Now that's funny.
And I heard the same thing about bogs and boulders from others. I want to check out the Talladega National Forest this fall after my trip to the Ozarks.

I lived in Mobile until the mid 70s. We use to have a strong dirt bike crowd but alas that has all gone away. Thankfully we have two major riding areas if you are willing to play the game and get tagged bikes.

We had a long discussion with a "bubba" yesterday who explained to us that we CANNOT ride motorcycles on the reservation! He cannot ride his 4 wheeler and so we cannot ride out MCs cause they are more dangerous than a 4 wheeler and cause more damage to the woods.

We informed him of course that he was wrong on many accounts but you will never win that argument. Like dirt riding in PASCO ... you either get it or you don't.

Anyway come over and join us sometime. Fall is coming up and riding get better - and we can leave later in the day since its not so damn hot.

Enjoy you new scoot and hope to meet up with you soon.

I will send tacks to you today.

Cool2 Lost Oakley sunglasses.

I seem to have lost my sunglasses at Speck yesterday. It's quiet a hall for me to go back. If anyone happens by there could you take a look around. If you go in the most northern entrance we all park in the first tree covered area on the right in between to two entrances.

Thanks for any help,
Rotor

Eglin General Use Rates

This may be old news but here goes;

According to phone conversation with agent at the permit office "general recreation access permits" are valid through September, and run $12, up from the $7 price still showing on the web site.
Headed that way now. Tired of you guys taking rides I'm not permitted for.

That doesn't sound like the fishing permit. It runs a year from the time you buy it. I like to get that one. Not the permit you are talking about.

Unless they changed something since May.

Go ahead and spend $20 for the full permit...it will be good for 1 year from date of purchase

Eglin Permit

Another option is the Small Game Permit which is $10 but it does expire every year on 30 Sep so the best bet if you are riding and not fishing is the Small Game Permit purchased 1 Oct and you are good for a year of riding and hunting critters if your bike breaks down.
