    Closest ocean is one hour, about 55 miles. Local fresh water spots are only 5-10 minutes. Since they put a five dollar per year / per car fee on our vehicle registration at the DMV, all state parks and beaches are now "free". It beats the previous $14/visit though. So, about $20-25 to go to the state beach.

    I went to another beach last week with CTdirtdigger at 74 miles each way. I found ONE copper Lincoln. (And CTd didn't even find that). We are in the hole.

    Cool old thread.
    I’m only 15 minutes or less from the beach. Probably less than 5 miles distance.
    Gas is the big expense for me and that’s about $2.50 up and back. The other cost is my State pass at $5.00 per year, which is not much. So between $2 & $3 per session. Clad usually offsets most of that cost but not always.
    I detect for fun not finances.
