Wheeling in Palmetto/Terra Ceia

A few of us will be wheeling this Sunday (May 19th), meeting up at the BP/Subway/Dairy Queen on Hwy 41 just south of I-275 (exit 2) at NOON, then heading to the spot, which is less than 5 minutes from there. We tend to stay out there anywhere from 2-6 hours. Already have at least 6 Jeeps and maybe a Tahoe confirmed... everyone is welcome! There's a few hills to climb, some ruts & ravines, a couple muddy areas, and you might even find some prehistoric shark teeth among the shell aggregate. There are some dirt-bike moguls if you want to bring the 2 or 4-wheeler. Oh, and there are some great photo ops:

Just take exit 229(I-275) when coming southbound on I-75 and then take your first exit (2). The bp is immediately south of the overpass.

I was going to, but it looks like its supposed to be thunderstorms in the pm, so I'll probably leave the doors and top on

I may just bring all the pieces to the top rolled up in case it gets nasty out.

Most of the day down here says sunny or partly cloudy, then intermittent storms after 6:00pm.

Yeh, I saw a spidershade vendor today at the Lakeland event (where I got sunburned), I just might have to invest in one.

It's only 20-30 mins from Brandon... could come for an hour or so... be a nice break from packing & prepping for the trip.

Today was a fun day to ride. Sun shining and none of the wet stuff.

Nice meeting you all and hope to see you around soon. Like in two weeks to be exact :-)
