UCFscottyb11 Thanks fellas, I'll stay in touch. This weekend is hectic for me as well. I'll be busy with football games--UCF Thursday night and Stetson's first game in decades on Saturday--but I'll be available most of September on weekends until the Old Ball Coach comes to visit on 9/28.

I'm loving it so far but can't wait for the rain to stop and the humidity to be less than a level you can swim through so I can take the doors off and the top off more often.
I'm free fridays and saturdays. Just let me know when! Except this weekend because of the holiday...

alienature if you know somebody who owns land you can get in suburban estates in halopaow off of 192. best muddy trails i know of in central FL some good spots to climb, also if you go all the way to the east coast in the Port st. john area theres a spot called the canaveral groves that is about as muddy as it gets, like monster truck swallowing black abyss holes.

Might make a morning run over to the place in Sanford Lake Mary on Friday instead of Ocala. It's kind of in the middle of town so probably not so buggy.
Thanks for the info.
Pm me if you head to lake mary area. I have never been and always looking for an excuse to get dirty!

damoutdoors How about across the State? Citrus WMA is right here. Are there any clubs around?

damndirtydog Deja' Vu!!
05-10-2013 04:48 PM
damndirtydog Lol way too funny. Check out my thread on fl forum, "wheeling in lake Mary."
I posted some pics. Our mud hole pics look identical. Had to pull my knucklehead buddy out of the same spot.

Great spot to go!

I took my fiance and her cousin out to your spot in Lake Mary to check it out today. We were having a great time for about 20 minutes until I bottomed out on a sand dune and had to call for a quick tow. Got out no troubles and enjoyed some more time before heading out. The guy who came to tow me out got himself stuck in about 18 inches of water/mud so I had to repay the favor.

This was a very fun spot withOUT "No Trespassing" signs and is clearly well used by ORVs. I'll definitely be back once I get her lifted! (probably before then a few times too)
05-10-2013 09:08 AM
Eclem Scrap Ocala for today. I'm going to save some gas and check out your place instead. Will post pics when I get back! If any body else wants to head out there let me know. In case I get stuck the peace of mind from having someone else there would be nice.
05-09-2013 10:19 PM
Eclem Wish I could. I work all day Wednesdays but I'm always off on Fridays and Saturdays. Thinking of heading up to Ocala tomorrow actually so I can finally see what all the hype is about.
05-08-2013 08:40 PM
damndirtydog Going there again next Wednesday with a buddy if you're interested.
We were going to do Ocala, but this is more fun.
05-08-2013 07:38 PM
Eclem sounds like a great place! Looking forward to the pics and I'll have to go check that out soon. Thanks!

damndirtydog Just found a great area in Lake Mary. Get off at Lake Mary exit east. Turn left at stoplight by the Tilted Kilt into Primera. About a mile down the road (past 2 or 3 large gray office buildings) you'll see a road apron on the left that goes nowhere, go to the second road apron a few hundred yards down the road and where the asphailt apron stops, you'll see tracks into the woods. Go in and veer to the right, when u get to a warehouse parking lot take the dirt road veering left. Go up a culvert hill, you,ll be looking at I-4 and go either left or right there's fun stuff either way. lots of small hills to climb, sandy areas, trails and a big drainage basin to get muddied up in.
I just went yesterday and I'm going to post some pics on a thread later tonight.
Great fun, and beers at Tilted kilt afterwards.

WranglerJR83 I know there are some places out there to ride, but I always go with the Orlando jeep club and the mid-Florida jeep club while I'm in Ocala and Daytona. I would check out those clubs. They put on the jeep beach event and jeeptoberfest.
05-06-2013 08:18 AM
Eclem I cant find anywhere (legal) around here to go either! Everything I find says to go up to the Ocala National Forest but I just bought my first Jeep (JK Unlimited) this week so I'd like to take her somewhere local just to get her dirty once or twice before I go all the way up there.
05-03-2013 04:57 PM
Jberg85 What kinda off road rig you got?
05-02-2013 05:37 PM
Joshdouglassoffroad I dont have a jeep but, cant find any other clubs here in orlando, im just looking for some cool people to hang with in my spare time and do a little off roading
04-29-2013 11:14 AM
shooter525 Thank you for the offer!
04-20-2013 06:44 AM
Jberg85 I have about 5 acres in the maitland area that is swampy if you'd like to come to it... I got about every other few days... Not much climbing but very muddy....
