Hey Red, did you see my reply? Still learning how to navigate the site. Anyway, To Gulls here....we met at Canopener!
We are staying at Pensacola Beach RV resort directly on Santa Rosa Sound through mid-March. Fantastic beach spot and probably 18 minutes to airport! We'll see you if you decide to stay here!

Well, crud, no, I didn't see your reply. Dang, I just finished making my reservations at Ft Pickens. Mrs Red, for some weird reason, decided not to come with me on this one. Said she didn't want to be stuck all day there by herself while I'm in training. All day by yourself at the beach... boy, would that suck or what? I was going to go to PBRV Resort until she bailed on me, then decided to hit Ft Pickens because I could fish the bay side in the afternoons, since I got no one to stare at all evening... Taking the buggy with me to cruise Pickens while I'm at it. Might as well have fun.

Wish I'd have seen your post now... I made the reservations on my work card and they charge to change them, and getting charged for nothing makes the boss agitated. And who needs people with power mad at them. I'll swing in one afternoon if y'all are going to be around and it's cool with y'all.

Y'all come by Pickens if you want. My cooler's always open... Heck, I'd even share a burger with y'all, 'cause I'm nice that way.

I'm still hoping to talk Shelly into coming with me, but we're stuck at Pickens now, dang it...

-Red, solo Streaming for one trip...

I can't add Fort Pickens is great. We stayed at Fort Pickens and loved it! Most beautiful beaches that I have ever seen.

Thanks Ed! It's Ft Pickens now any way we slice it, or I pay forty bucks out of my pocket for cancellations... which just ain't going to happen. It does help to hear how much others have/are enjoying it. Wishing I was going out next week by some of the messages I've received. It's like a mini rally going at Pickens. Alas, work still requires me to show up, even if I don't have to work that much.

-Red, using "alas" for the first time in a post...

I'll second the Welcome - National Naval Aviation Museum Well worth seeing if you have the time to do it. Just on the outskirts of the city, IIRC.

Campground Near Pensacola FL Recommendations

As an Air Force veteran, I always wonder what the heck is the Navy doing flying planes??? We didn't go around making boats in the Air Force... Doesn't "Navy" just infer that it will be boats, and not airplanes?

I'm planning on hitting the museum. Would be such a waste to be there and not see it. I thrive on all things aviation. I fly radio control, was in the USAF, and work for the FAA now... Not a big fan of flying with someone else at the controls though. Yeah, I'm a control freak...

My apologies to the U.S. Navy. Thank you squids for all of your dedication and hard work. I chose not to go Navy strictly because of the time on the boat. I get seasick. REALLY seasick... Most of the guys I work with are ex Navy, and your schools are top notch! That boat thing though...

-Red, puking while he thinks about it...

SWEET! See y'all there. I'll provide the steaks. Let's grill this thing... Might even provide a couple Yeungling along with the dead cow. Might... Like there's a possibility that there will be steaks without beer. I'll PM you on here when this gets closer.

Mini rally at Pickens, March 9-11... To Gulls, y'all need to come over for steak night. This could be mini epic...

-Red, glad he took this training now...

Wait, science teacher? You don't have a "Breaking Bad" thing going here, do you?

-Red, slightly worried...

We're at Blackwater River State Park right now which is about 30 minutes or so from Pensacola. Immaculate smaller park with only 30 sites. We are in site #7 with 30/50 amp service, water, and sewer. The restrooms are excellent. We just came from Topsail Hill State Park which I thought was one of the nicest parks we've been to in Florida. Blackwater River almost equals Topsail. The river is the big feature here that is the only sand bottom pristine river left in the U.S. We took a nice 11 mile canoe ride down the river and the cost was $50 for the two of us which included the canoe and portage. What it didn't cover was the phone that one of us dropped in the river but that's another story. The park is in the Blackwater River State Forrest which is typical Florida landscape with lots of pines, palmetto, and various trees. Beautiful. Which brings me to this question. Has anyone ever had anything "cracked" on the roof of Airstream from a falling pine cone? They really made a thud when hitting the roof.
