Wish I could do that trip too but I'm working that weekend. Take pictures and post when you get back!

fljeepleo I'll drive by and check if its open, I know they have been refurbishing it. That sounds like a good meeting spot. Its North of 56 before 54. Thats works good for where my folks are coming from.

looking forward to it. isn't there a rest stop somewhere past 54 or 56? might not be a bad spot to meet up. lots of folks in the SCFL live over in PINEllas... so we typically meet at the rest stop right where 75 and 275 meet.

you tell me, i'm game for meeting up just about anyplace along the way. i'm in ybor, if anyone wants to meet up a little earlier along the way.. PM me or CB channel 5 works...

tabber02 yep.. i'm not really out for any land speed records. i try to keep things between 55 and 65 max.

poker runs, wheeling or just plain old driving anywhere...

sounds like we could have a pretty cool forum run up to Ocala...
11-26-2012 08:19 PM
Slimpickins I may go. There are some folks headed up on Sunday the 9th as well.
11-26-2012 07:07 PM
myquite I'd love to do one of these runs with you guys. I'll keep my eyes open on the threads for possible meet ups. 55mph sounds pretty nice. lol

Last time I did a run up to Inverness, I told everyone in the convoy they had to keep it under 55. They did, and it was good even with my bigger tires and stock gears.

Are non lifted jeeps suitable for hard rock?
they'll be okay. there's stuff out there for everyone. there are spots where they could get into trouble, but they should be fine. just remember to tell the group there is an entry fee to the park... might also want to suggest packing lunches or bringing a small grill and hanging out and grilling in between some of the trail runs.

december 22 right? any room for others who'd like to join?

Looks like my Jeep won't be back on the road by then. Hit a snag with the steering upgrade so I have to wait until I can afford the parts.

you'll be fine. there's plenty you can do in a stock rubi out there... good place to go to learn what your rig can or can't do...
