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.

And yes a surprise visit from daryn who started the 5hunny craze around here and is sorely missed. I have found that riding buddies are biddies for life... Nor matter how long the separation...

We need to go out there more often.

As usual for this group no pics... Just good riding.
now worries remember i had to leave early anyhow due to b day party it was fun we can scoot up there any wknd early for a ride enjoyed meeting all the new peeps

I thought you had knobbies on the rear and it sounded like you had a fresh front you had laying around. Didn't mean to cause you a new set of knobies...

However... you will be glad you did. Maximum traction never hurts.

Do you do GPS??? I can send some tracks if you are interested.

I had good tires but I wanted fresh!
;)
I use my old Tom Tom for a map that I wired on my bike that is next Xmas a good gps system I'm hoping they will go down in price,
I ran a all terrain tire in front with knob in back that works the best for me keeps the vibration off the front! :)

I needed a good excuse for new tires !

I keep tires around to change for my riding habit!

Eglin Permit

As soon as the lady at the desk mentioned the fishing permit option, which is good for 1 year from date of purchase, it dawned on me other inmates had suggested the same.
I'm legit now... no more excuses.

The main reason for getting the fishing permit is that you wont have to stand in line when time come to renew the regular permit with all the bubbas...

Good for you!

Hey guys, Jon here... Bought an '01 XR650L a few weeks ago, and moved to Milton a few weeks before that. Heard about some good riding in the area, and when coupled with a 30 mile commute to work, well...that meant getting into dual-sport riding!

Waiting on a few parts right now, but otherwise shes ready to go and was hoping to test out Blackwater pretty soon!

Looks like a good forum here, glad to be involved.
