There is a big 3 day event in Gulf Breeze, Florida march 29-31. 3 trails in 3 days, will be lots of fun! You can go to extremetrails.com for more info or e-mail me with your address and I can snail mail you a registration pack.
Hopefully this map will work. Gulf Breeze is actually pretty small, but it is right near Pensacola. So if you can find Pensacola, you can find Gulf Breeze. Pretty place also. Make a trip out of it, and drop the wife off at the beach.
I am interested in the trails as well. Is it going to be on Eglin AFB? Private land, or what?

I'm stuck in the '80's!
Gulf Breeze is in the Panhandle. VERY close to the beach, so it would make a nice little vacation if you wanted to make a full week out of it and enjoy the beach too. The trails we will be running are Crestview, Blackwater, and Jones Swamp. Crestview is a lot of wash-outs, lots of flexing and 3 wheeling action, it's my personal favorite. Blackwater is about half wash-outs and half mud. Jones Swamp is the king of all mud...it's where the big boys play. I'm trying to mix it up so there is something for everyone. It's all public land. Trail leaders that know each trail very well are provided. So far we have BDS Suspensions and Offroad Sportsman Association sponsoring and I expect more by the end of next week. We will be camping and staging out of the shop I work at, Austin's Auto Accessories, which makes it nice for repairs and cleaning, we have a killer diesel powered pressure washer! The shop is on a nice chunk of land so camping will be free. Registration is only $35 per vehicle and you will receive an event T-shirt, dash plaque, and raffle ticket, and other various things. E-mail me at [email protected] with your address and I will mail you a registration packet. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, Casey Shields
elusive, it's kind of hard to say how long it would take, I guess it depends on how fast you were going! I don't know, half or 1/3 of a day. There is more trails and places to play in the area, so we might do some unofficial night runs. It will be a good time, come on down and check it out.
