This was out at Fort Indiantown Gap, or "the Gap" as we locals call it. They have puplic dirt road that runs up to "Hawk Watch", but if the red flag is up, its closed and means that they are practicing bombing or firing artillery.

They do the same thing in the Ocala National Forest except they don't close it down they have a designated area for Bombing that has a burn all the way around it.

I remember going to Boyscout summer camp when I was a kid. This also happened to be close to the "Gap". All week long you would hear A-10 Warthogs (Tank Killers)flying over head, and then you could hear them off in the distance firing that big ass gattling gun they have in the nose. Man do they sound awesome! And the Jet itself has a unique sound all of its own. Those were always my favorite growing up. I even remember doing a book report on them and their importance in the Gulf War my freshmen year in highschool.

It is cool but when they do it until 11 pm and your trying to go to sleep it gets old.

Three more signs you might not want to see while wheeling. These are from west Texas and Big Bend area on the U.S. Mexico border.

One more...This one really gave me the creeps. I saw it posted after taking a VERY wrong turn down a long desolate west Texas road. I'm glad that I never met up with the person that had so proudly constructed this sign. If they had asked...I would've said that it was spelled perfectly.

I was out there one very quiet afternoon just puttin along listening to the silence of the woods and then suddenly there was the loudest noise I've ever heard and I looked up to see the ass end of 2 A-6's bookin' along at tree top level. Scared the crap outa me!
I thought they had stopped using live ordnance in Ocala years ago. Guess they're back at it.

I know this post is old but I just saw it and I can't stop laughing. It just sounds painful.
