    what does it cost ya to get 2 the beach ?

    when folks post stuff its so ez to overlook the time

    and money that goes into just getting to the beach.

    for me a day of beach detecting cost about 18 dollars.

    b4 i even turn on my machine. its 75 miles each way

    and because the route goes thru several major towns

    with lots of stoplights it takes 2 hours each way.

    the breakdown is 16 gas and 2 dollar entry fee.

    does this make me a diehard or pansy ?

    how far or to what lenghts most go to get to the beach.

    at least i get free parking !

    Depending on the traffic lights, 10 minutes. About .10c for gas.

    Re: what does it cost ya to get 2 the beach ?

    It all depends which beach I go too. I have one that is only 15 mins away. I only go there 2 times a year. I hit others that is from 30 mins to 1 1/2 hours away. I have travel up to 4 hours for a weekend stay and then there is times where I take a week vacation and head to the ocean and that take at least 10 hours......Matt

    Re: what does it cost ya to get 2 the beach ?

    Eh, it's about 15 min's or so away... so not much. And there's alot of places to park for free, depending which beach. I guess the only thing that really costs is missing the hours at work when I feel "a bit under the weather" *cough* *cough*

    From 10 to 20 min depending on traffic. I just park on the beach and motor along to different spots. St. Johns County has 16 miles of drive-able beach. In total there is over 40 miles of beach in St. Johns County. I rarely travel outside of the county.

    In Key West I can see all the beaches from my top windows. Since I always use my bicycle, it costs me no money and five minutes in time.

    Re: what does it cost ya to get 2 the beach ?

    One hour to the beach, 3 tolls, and it looks like they are building a new one on the beach line east of the airport. Old state 50 is looking better...
    I bag a lunch so the day cost $20.00 on avg. All things considered still way ahead thanks to one nice platinum ring.

    I love the rain. A day without rain is like a day without sunshine I always say.
