Thumbs up Ocala National Forest Spring Break Trip report

ok going to top post.. Anyone know why my google photo links do not resolve into embedded pictures? links are good but I can only launch them in a new window..

Spent a week in the Ocala National Forest with our ´16 JKU. Drove about 350 miles maybe 70 of them really off road (much more if you include improved gravel Forest Road as off road). Averaged about 17.5 MPG (calculated).

Stayed in Crescent City one night and at Welaka Lodge and Resort the rest of the trip. Thoroughly drove the area around Lake George as well as spent a day on a Pontoon Boat. It was Bike week so we had plenty of company in the bars but saw very few people off road.

Here are a few pics out of hundreds that we took:


Jeep and Crew (i am in the middle)


Glamour Shot


Miles and miles of sugar sand


View from our deck at sunset over the St John´s river


On the bow of the pontoon boat in Salt Springs run


Ospreys ruled the area


View from the Fort Gates Ferry


A very large fellow sharing the trail with us


Berm where we dragged a bit going over


Back on road but time for a last beer in a biker bar in Umatilla


Google map showing various places we thought were worth going back to including bars, restaurants, lodging and off road sites

So, a great time was had by all, we put the jeep in 4 low one time, bounced on our belly plate one time, drove sugar sand with impunity and backed out of water/mud when it got up to the axles a couple of times.

We are looking forward to our next outing and will probably explore the southwest area of the Ocala National Forest next.

OK google photos is broken with regards to embedding image urls, unlike picasa web albums which it is supposed to be replacing..

Epic Fail Google!

Will be reposting this with a new name and good links. Mods, you are welcome to delete this post in its entirety.
