The road to Ft Pickens is expected to reopen to the public this Friday. It was washed out during Ivan, rebuilt and then washed out with Dennis. After a few years of dealing with turtle nesting season and such, they went with a cheap road since they cannot figure out how to build a hurricane proof one. The powers that be decided we can just rebuild another 'cheap' road. Electricity, on the other hand, may be run in September. The Bird nesting season is upon us and they cannot disturb that can they? Anyway, most of the fort has been restored from what I've been told. Have not made that hike myself and don't have a boat to ride over there.
