You'll need an Oregon ORV tag(easy to find at sporting good stores if I remember right), and a 12'(i think) antenna with a flag.

The first two are from Winchester Bay which is about 20 mils south, the others are from Florence of this year and previous.

Thanks, I've put alot of time in it.

It does excellent! I run about 7-8 lbs of air, and with the 360, it goes anywhere! It even flies if I'm not careful!

There's a place called Sportsman's on Hwy 101 on the right near the south end of town, you should be able to get everything you need there. From there, go south over the bridge and up the hill near the top on the right will be signs saying South Jetty, go down there and you can access the sand from there.

Have fun!
