Anyone in the panhandle?
I'm between Destin and Pcola, I usually ride in Destin by crab Island or in the Navarre area. Anyone else in the area?

We enjoyed hanging out at Crab Island, had lunch at Destin Dewey's and explore about 10 miles east of Crab Island in Santa Rosa Sound, heading to P'cola. Once I got through the NWZ at Ft. Walton, SRS was beautiful. We eventually took a break on one of the small, uninhabited islands across the sound from Mary Esther. I think we were almost across from Hulbert NAS?
Had a nice couple of days, but it would have been better to explore w/a local - maybe next time...

I live in the Navarre area and would like to ride, currently looking for a ski but will have one soon. Any ride groups in the area??

FYI, hopefully, before the true riding season is over, I plan to circumnavigate Gulf Shores Isle. I guess if I can get a date nailed down, we'll post it up and maybe meet a few of you West Florida Republic guys.

Really would love to make that Miami Bimini trip next year. That run from Pcola and Destin, and Pcola up the Black water river would be a great run also. Im currenly looking for a Yamaha FX HO or SHO if you see one around town for sale. (2008-2009 year)

Quite a few of those SoFL guys rave on that trip - I'd certainly check it out if I lived closer.
Oh yeah, btw - welcome to the 'Hulk.

Thanks....once I get a ski, can work on getting a ride group for our area. Seems like every area has one but ours, change soon.

That would be nice... I bumped into a few locals on Crab Isle a few weeks ago. Nice folks, but not forum members. Not adventurous at all - I don't think their skis ever got out of Destin Sound; but good folks all the same.
PWCtoday has some area riders, but those guys are mostly stand-up riders... they can usually be found jumping the rollers in front of the Hwy 98 bridge, in between the jetties.
Get that bike and get organized w/some area riders. We need you to have all the good spots waypointed for when we SoLA guys invade...
