Does anyone know of any alternative parking locations for the Fort Walton Beach / Valparaiso FL airport? I'm flying out of there for Christmas/New Year's, and the airport parking is $7/day. I have to save money so I can get my AWGs.

Thanks,
Beans

Can you park aboard Tyndal or Eglin (free and w/ some security inherent ) and take an airport shuttle???

I would call the Space-A Terminal at Eglin and ask if there is a long term parking area you can use. Then you just need a short cab/shuttle ride.

I wouldn't, as it's going to call cost $30 for a cab ride...and unless you're going to be gone for more than 10 days, it's not going to be worth the hassle.

Why don't you just ask someone in the squadron to drop you off/pick you up? Save you some change and throw that dude a $10 for gas.

It's about an hour drive from Milton, so that might be a bit of a stretch to ask someone to do that at 4-4:30 in the AM.

Go over the night before -- stay in the Eglin Q -- take the shuttle -- game over --- unless the panhandle is still a third world country ....

There were three Pace rescue vehicles outside my house a few minutes ago. My neighbor's kid's (second) car's front end was not straight. Cops were on scene. A few minutes later, the FHP is in my driveway giving a FST to said kid. Maybe not third world, but sad either way.
