You are lucky to have a 4X4! I used to try to find someone to meet up with so I could get down that far. I wish there was a spot to say carpool down there. I attempted to go about a mile in my Fusion, but i wasn't braver to do anymore.
I've only seen a copy once during my times of going. I went before and after Ike with others.
To the comment from years ago about it being boring out there. That is somewhat what I enjoyed. i liked that it wasn't just people trying to hook up out there. As a female, I preferred when I wasn't having eyes on me...especially ones I didn't come with. Plus, being a fat female, I didn't like the inward thought of what was being seen. Nudism shouldn't have to make a person feel bad. Still I usually liked it out there.
Been there this past year. The storms of the past few years move a lot of beach sand out. The area is accessable to 4x4 in all areas. The place was hopping with naked people on the 3 days we went. Never did see any Police patrols. We were almost 3 miles down near the middle, not where all newbies stop in the first mile.
I went down Feb 26, 2011. Car travel is good but with the new USFW fence it was hard to get into Jefferson County were the actual nude beach is because of the tide. But exploring with a car is cool the beach is smooth with very minimal loose sand
I was down there last summer (August 2009), and as usual it was dead and uneventful. :-( But if someone was interested in going and wanted me to meet them there......an email or note of some kind to let me know......might prove to be the start of an interesting time.......any takers?
Last time I was there was 2006 late summer and the beach had alot of deep sand left over from Hurrican Rita. Need to have tow ropes or four wheel drive to get back up in the deeper part of teh beach. Last time I went alomost no one was there. Should get a group to go out there and have a good time.
