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:

Sounds like we're getting a decent sized group together... should be a good time

elclipo 05-18-2013 01:48 PM

Sure sounds like it! Bringing the little one with me. The wife's not coming this time.

JerryJeepster 05-18-2013 02:17 PM

We're going to try to make it. The wife is still in recovery mode so we may not wheel too hard.

HCFR-Halligan 05-18-2013 03:02 PM

Looks like I'm in. Is there an address for the subway/dq?

JKU SRQ 05-18-2013 03:08 PM

I'm up to my armpits putting the finishing touches on a YJ engine swap but will have the address on here later today.

Amocat00 05-18-2013 03:32 PM

1719 U.S. Hwy. 41

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.

elclipo 05-18-2013 06:58 PM

Everyone going topless tomorrow?

vacca foeda 05-18-2013 07:04 PM

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

Got the YJ running & out of my garage so if I have enough ambition in the morning the JKUs hardtop is going in the rafters again

Amocat00 05-18-2013 07:18 PM

Yeah, I saw 30-50% chance of rain. Targa top for me if I can make it.

elclipo 05-18-2013 07:39 PM

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

JKU SRQ 05-18-2013 07:53 PM

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

horsedad58 05-18-2013 07:54 PM

Got sunburned today running topless. Soo.... I will be leaving the top up.

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

Sounds good to me

Amocat00 05-18-2013 10:50 PM

We aren't gonna make it. Have too much to do to get ready for our trip up north.

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.

elclipo 05-19-2013 06:09 PM

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 :-)
