ONF- Paisley Wood North Recon
Had some time off so we did an quick unplanned recon of northern Paisley Wood starting from SR 40 and heading south. The plan was to get back down to Alexander Springs area and reconnect with SR 19. As you can see we started out good but then hit some standing water on a side trail.
We got through the 1st one but the 2nd one seemed a bit deep and very wide. So we backed out (I hate water!! ) and went a bit up 445A to FR 65 and headed back south. We kept trying to head southeast but the water kept appearing and pushed us more to higher ground.
Around late noon we worked back to 445A and headed to lunch and headed back home with a quick side trip to the Jeep Dealer free car wash (gotta keep the DIVA Jeep clean!)

This would be a nice ride during dry season, note: You WILL get Ocala custom pin stripping on this trip! The magnetic skin guards worked great protecting the Jeep, if you do not have them and want to protect your sides, get them before doing this trail.
Will want to do continue looking for track back to bottom of Paisley Woods but will do when a bit
