There isn't many...
There's the "Hump" which is next to the Homestead Racetrack (south of it)
It's not an official park, but just open area to get your truck dirty in (white Sandy Mud... The hardest to wash off)

There's another open section on Bird Rd all the way west... You'll notice where the road ends, there's a side dirt road... Take that all the way in and there's some mud in there as well.

I went alone to both places so I didn't dare to go in to deep incase I got stuck.

Let me know if you guys wanna get together one day and go check them out...
There's also a spot in West Palm that I have never been to & would love to go with other jeeps. (Not fun going alone)

Other then that, from what I have searched in over a year, that is all that we got down here...
Anything else, your gonna need to drive!

lazy springs is a decent park -- but boy they need to do something about their pricing! to be honest -- it's no where near as nice as the hardrock in ocala -- but it costs twice as much...

I agree...
Lazy was a little steep!

Anyone interested in getting something together and going to a trail?
I'm down to go where ever, I'm just tired of Jeeping alone :'o(


LOL...

By the way, if you see this Jeep driving in front of you... Move the HELL out of the way...
This guy's spare is about to fall off & only being held by 1 lug nut
I saw this earlier today coming out of a meeting and I had to take a pic...

10 per vehicle and then 10 per person so if you ride with him it's 30 total but if you drive yourself it's 40 for the two of you. you can drive atv's and stuff there. look up a video, in my opinion it's well worth the money. if he really wants to test it out this is the place to go.

They banged a larger socket on Mopar lug lock and were kind enough to leave on my driveway mockingly. Happened last week.

Jet,
I'm game...
My baby (11 month old daughter) is a little under the weather, but if she gets better by Sunday, I'm in.

How many other Jeepers going?

Text me and let me know where and what time you guys are leaving...

did both times happen to you or one to you and one to someone else? it sounds like you should head over to bass pro shop and get a hunting camera that takes pictures of things that are moving and mount it so it watches your jeep at night. you mount them into trees and they have a motion sensor and take pictures once motion is detected... i'd suggest one that's inferred they might steal it if they see the flash and know it's there.

yeah my parents have security cameras on our driveway, but a friend of mine did that when he went away to college because he had a nice car and was worried about it with all of the crazy kids around and it actually saved him one time.

Yea that sounds good to me, let me know if you can fit it in. Is there an entry fee into the preserve on weekends?
