Some of us fellows in Labelle are interested in joining in this great event but need some directions as to locations of ramps as we are not familiar with area. Thanks !

Certainly! You can google search sawgrass recreation park directly off 27 or you can take 441 south to loxahatchee rd. As far as not knowing the area we will be giving drivers maps and assigning groups to ease the confusion

I agree it's going to be crowed but I believe the folks coming out to show their support for our Armed Forces are some of the best in the world and will work it out.

Also don't forget many of the camp owners are supporting this event and respect what we're doing for our troops. There will also be folks coming in at Sawgrass and we will probably have some congestion there too. Whatever happens it'll be worth it. :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

That's a really bad post. You will catch hell for that one. Veterans or race? Our veterans gave life, limbs and their future so that you CAN go to races and be free. I personaly would remove the post before everyone see's it. I have a lot more on that subject but I am going to suppress it if I can.

Thank you Scotty;
Pro's and con's, we all think from different directions and that's a good thing. Give's us a better panoramic view of the prospectrum. (I thought that up all by myself)
Just in from froging, 1.5 hours of ripping azz. Got enough now to feed a malitia! (it was a short window for frogs but exciting as hell)
I will try to post pics, over 100. Another month and it will be 300 in that time.

:proud: Got up, started coffee, looked outside and the hawk is setting on top of the airboat waiting for me to clean the frogs so that she can help clean up the aftermath. I have to cover the bag so she don't ripe holes in it, she knows when I frog by the croaking.

Thanks ElevatorGuy, Maybe just leave off the candles and cake. If Saturday goes anything like I think it will, by the end of the day I'll be ready for some liquid rum cake! :occasion5: :drunken:

Gonna be a busy day at OldGlory and one to remember!

Re: Frogs are too exspensive

Post by newoldglory » Tue Oct 16, 2012 6:28 pm

Well,that did'nt work. I tried to add pics to my post and it said the file was invalid,then I lost my whole post. Now I have to start over and try to remember what lie I printed just in case it comes up somewhere else.
Every time I go froging it costs me $100 or more. This morning I dressed out 11.5 pounds of legs, therefor I figure It cost me over $12 per pound for exspences alone! Froging is like boating, if it was'nt for the sport we would'nt do it!!! I just went to town and got 60 gallons of fuel and an alternator for my big boat, beer, and barely had enough money left for milk. Maybe I should take up joging!! :roll: :lol: :lol: :scratch: :proud: :old_glory: :usa: :florida: :rebel:
