Cause I don't want any Pin-Stripes. My Jeep has never been in the Dirt. I hate to follow Dave on the trails.

Damn.. the dates don't work for me anyway...

Going deep sea fishing and wheeling with some buds that weekend.

Sorry Dave, I can't make it because my Jeep is scared of alligators.

There was talk (last year) of them making obstacles on the trails in the ONF. Has that been done yet? I think that's about the only reason I'd go wheeling in the ONF again...just didn't like the pinstriping and trails of flat dirt.

Regardless, hanging out and camping with everyone there should be a good time.

Trick to wheeling Ocala is to turn around when the corners start banking - that means it's turning into a narrow ass 4 wheeler trail. I turn around all the time. There's some good mud spots, logs to cross, and hills to climb if you know where to look.

FL4WDA is still hanging signs on the trails there. Jason says that when they finish the trail marking they are going to work on obstacles. I dont expect much more than log barriers.

Personally, putting around forest trails in Ocala is my idea of offroading.
