    I'm headed to Panama City Beach tomorrow for our family vacation. I'll try to scope out every dealership I pass and see how many jts are lurking down south. Hope everyone has a great memorial day and thanks to all who served!

    Did the hurricane mess it up that bad? I heard it didn't do too much at pcb but Panama City and Mexico beach got hit hard

    The west side is fine. We have a house across from Splash and there were no issues, barely even any wind. The east side to Mexico suffered quite a bit the more you travel east. Port St Joe had some surge but it looks pretty good now. Its about a 30 mile or so trek that you can see the damage. Not sure which way you come in but from the mall into town you can really tell.

    Good luck finding one. I have yet to see one down here! my buddy saw a white one driving around but I'm still waiting to see one lol. As far as the hurricane goes don't expect to see much damage on the beach side. If you take a drive down 98 towards Mexico beach you will see the real damage. A lot has been cleaned up but still a lot of destroyed structures.

    Have fun down there. Lots of fond memories of PCB as I competed in 3 Ironman Florida Triathlons there in 2005, 2008, and 2011. My kids were youngsters back then and loved going there. It became known as Ironman Beach to them. Seems like there is a Waffle House there on every corner, lol.
