December wheeling

Any ideas? I wanna go wheeling at some point in December despite the fact that it's a hard month to organize anything in. Anyone wanna wheel/camp somewhere?

I had an idea about a new years eve campout and then wheel on Jan. 1. They say that whatever you do on Jan 1 you'll do all year long. Personally, I wanna go wheeling, eat a steak, drink some beer, and come home and get laid. Sounds like the makings of a good year.

Post up if you have any wheeling ideas for the next 40 or so days. Only thing I have committed to is the Winter Haven Parade the weekend of the 5th. But that's only on Friday night.

Theres no way I can fit it in (thats what she said) in December. My on call schedule has just gone to every other week now so I'm screwed untilthey hire some rookies and promote my next partner.

A few of us from St. Aug/Jax are heading out to Ocala for camping/wheeling the weekend of the 6th. We've been kicking around Hardrock, but most of us are limping with injuries for the time being.

I've been nursing my broken back for a couple months now so testing my center of gravity at HardRock is probably out.

We usually go to the extreme North end of the forest and camp off a Jeep trail. We have somewhat of a secret spot (not really) that we go to and setup camp. It has access to water for kayaks, fishing etc.

Ask me again when I get my snorkel. I'll go freaking scuba diving.

That's the weekend of the SanDiego @ Bucs game too. Going to that game.

Both of you guys would be fine. We went for the first time last month (also with a TJ on 35's/no snorkel) and as long as you don't get stupid you would have no problem. A little lift and tires is all you need this time of year. I don't have a snorkel and a couple of waterholes I skirted the edge and when I checked at the end of the day I did not get any water in the stock airbox. If you hit the hole straight on like Hitmoney did then you need a snorkel.

Well, in all honesty, it doesn't look as bad as Ive seen Richloam get. Post up next time you go there and I'll see if it works. I dont mind trail riding that involves water crossing and mud, but it does get old when the entire trail is pretty much one long river. That happens a LOT in Richloam and I typically turn around.

I agree. That has been my experience at Bear Island and the reason I like Corbett better. More trail and less boating.

I went to a Meet & Greet last night and a couple of the guys there went to Corbett since our trip and said there is even less water now.

It is looking good that we are going to be there again on Sunday, December 21st. Some of the guys are talking about making a weekend of it and camping there Saturday night but I will most likely drive up from Miami on Sunday morning. All are welcome.
