Is there any chance for unplanned Jekyll Isle buggying ?
I could get away in winter spring, but the May event is out of the question when you fix air conditioning for a living. Everything in summer has to be a day, or at most, a weekend trip.:dunno:

That would be on the other side of the Mississippi right?
I've heard people live there.

VA beach would be the handiest. I get mixed signals about how legal it is though.
If there's a bunch of ninja buggyers over there, they may be keeping it down low.
Questionable fields are (rightfully) jealously kept.
If you are one, and there's room for one more. ineedtocontacted@gmail.

Sorry no hijack intended. Back to the lucky bastards post.

It's worth the drive Ed, there are a couple of JIBE regulars who come down from Virginia... come on down!

We've already made our plans for next year. We'll be staying on Saint Simons Island for 2 weeks. Hopefully one of them coincides with JIBE.

Hey Gang
What do you think about Monday May 4 with low tide at !2:42 through Friday May 8 with low tide at 4:06 pm??

Second half or the month are similar times in the afternoon and this keeps us farther away from Memorial day/ Mothers day.

I'll book it with JIA if y'all are cool with it.

First full week of May (4th-8th) is my preference!! We have already made our travel plans as they are dependent on my in-laws. We are planning to stay on SSI for a 2 weeks stint next spring and this falls on our second week! So I'll be staying up the road a piece, but on the beach as much as possible! There's great riding on SSI too, IMO!

Thanks Angus
