Good time at the beach Friday! Naked at last and maybe a few other things.
FYI: The pervert GW was sneaking around. I guess he's one of those hero's they keep talking about.
I didn't make it down today but was out on Saturday. Absolutely perfect weather, the GW only drove by once, and he didn't seem too curious about what was/wasn't going on, just doing a simple drive by. I didn't see any other totally naked people our yesterday, just myself. There were a few with thongs but that was about it. Just glad the warmer weather is here so we have more options on the weekend.
We drove down Saturday around 4pm to check things out and see where we could set up when we start coming out more frequently, I noticed several things that were different. The washed away road at the entrance seems to have been cleared a lot more and the beach is now more accessible. This is allowing more people to go down farther. I’ve been coming out here for a few years now and have never seen it this packed. I saw many families at the beach with kids as far as 7 miles in and even one at the old pier around the 10 mile mark. Usually you don’t see kids past the first few miles. I saw a few people enjoying life with less clothes around mile 3 but only a couple of groups. Around Mile 7 it opened up and there wasn’t too many people there until you got to the old pier. I did see a couple more people after mile 7 enjoying what we all come here for, but for the most part it was quiet. I did see the Game Warden between miles 7 and 9 headed back toward the High Island Entrance. With all of the new families coming out it looks like we may be setting up much farther down this season. Just my observations from this Saturday.
I have to agree with some of that. I feel like once all of this virus stuff clears and most people go back to work there won’t be as many people down there. I believe that the reason it’s like that is everyone has been cooped up inside and are going crazy to get out.
So last year was my first year visiting the beach and most of the time I would drive down somewhere by the old pier and set up and really didn't see to many people down that far and the ones I did see were fellow nudists. But I must agree, I've been several times this year and seen families out for the day and even some camping down as far as the old pier. I was down this Saturday and spent more time pulling my shorts up and down than I did anything else!! LOL. I hope JHOLMES is right and as people get back into their normal routine there will be fewer families that drive so far in to the beach. Also, I've noticed more "Jeep Club" traffic, is that normal?
I wouldn’t want to tell anyone that they wouldn’t get stuck in a 2wd. It would be a gamble based on a number of factors, beach conditions at the time traveling, the tide level, the vehicle and driver ability, to name a few. I know it’s not much help. There will be those that will risk it and have success and others have it go to hell in a hand basket! I’m fortunate to have 4wd and personally wouldn’t attempt the trip in 2wd. It’s very likely someone will come along and drag you out if you get stuck, but who really wants to do all that?
I’ve always saw a lot of jeeps out there, the beach area is perfect for off-roading, but they usually just drive by and keep going. It’s a two for one me, I get to off-road in my big truck and me and the wife can sunbathe in our birthday suits. As for going in a two wheel drive, it’s at your own risk. I tried driving my big truck in 2WD and had to put it in 4WD In a few areas, especially where the Sand isn’t packed or the pebble gravel is. It appeared that there was a car that got stuck this past Saturday about 4-5 miles in, someone had pulled them out when we drove out.
The Jeep crowd is not a bad one they normally just drive on through and keep going so you may have to cover up for a few mins but other than that it’s ok. I would not attempt to go down in a 2wd unless the tide is way out because more than likely you will get stuck. In the old days down there when people drove by like that it was to see what they could see and you would walk out in front of them so they could see you nude which is a big turn on for most because it’s a stranger seeing you nude and they are not supposed to see you that way LOL. I am going to go down tomorrow for a little bit it’s supposed to be ok weather until late afternoon.
