Well after 2 failed attempts at this last year, I figured id give it one more shot. I would like to do a 4x4 campout in the Ocala Nat forest some time soon, b4 it starts getting too hot out. Im jus hoping to get enuff ppl wanting to get out and work their trucks and do something for once. This will be a non shooting event, its focus is on the rigs, driving and camp gear. Everyone can shoot anytime, this is a time for 4x4ing, etc. The trail isnt bad, most can do it in 2wd but there are a few small water crossings and the trail is tight, so if either put a HD wax job on or leave the trailer queens at home, you could get it scratched up. Post here if interested and what days youd like to go. We can do 2-3 days/nites, Im thinking Start on FRiday and leave Sun morning. We will either trail ride all day and just camp on the trail or head over to one of the campgrounds for socializing.

Post up your dates and ideas here.

Count me in

My schedule is fairly flexible right now, so any weekend in March/April should be do-able for me.

yip, very much so. We basically CAR/Truck camp. We meet up early on FRiday, have our meet and greet and then held out into the trails caravan style. Cruise around til early afternoon and then setup camps and just chill. Everyone is encouraged to come out. IF you have a pet all we ask is you secure the animal and dont let it mess in the camp area. With car/truck camping your only limited in gear by the room you have in your truck (as apposed to backpacking, etc).

Put me down as a possible,  after a confirmed date is decided on.  I'm swapping the engine in my BOV (Jeep), but it should be ready by then.  I'll be a good time to break it in.

Will there be a safe place to park a tow rig?  
Link Posted: 2/26/2008 6:19:03 PM EDT
I won't be able to the first weekend in April.  Other than that, I'm down with most any other time.  I love to get stuck and have the Jeep guys laugh at me.  

I just sleep in the back (have a topper).  Spend many nights during hunting season back there...

Okay, thatll work then. So the date is set. Same criteria as last time, meet up at the kangroo around 9-10ish and head off into the woods. This is a non shooting event, but if you CCW that is cool just no show and tell.

Actually these guys seem to have their stuff together.   ZS is a preparedness group that uses zombies as a Metaphor for disaster to keep it fun.

Switched email accounts, and cant remember my old password.  New engine, and some routine maintenance and the old ford is doing pretty well.  I also cleaned up the back bumper so it is less of an anchor and added a winch up front.  Should be good times.

Ah cool. JUst bring any spare parts ya need. lol. My truck is ready to go. Just gotta load it up and move out. Im bringing the bare essentials this go around. It sux trying to find anything when its jam packed. lol.

SO how we looking?

Id like to get a partial list of who all is coming. Im really hoping eveyone can come out and make this one. The weather is still cool enuff for now. But come summer time, my ass will be parked in the A/C LoL.. So we want to get a nice trip in b4 then.

Basically we are meeting at the KANGAROO Gas station in ALtoona , County road 42 and highway 19.

42404 State road 19
ALtoona, FL 32702.

We will be meeting early on FRIDAY 11th and hope to hit the trail by 10am. I can give my cell to those coming, but some cell service can be spotty. Trying to come in later may or may not work, we really dont know where we will end up. With trail rides you never know what youll run across, ec.

If you have any questions about the area, contact Jonas, If you have any questions about gear or truck preps, you can ask me or Jonas or just post in this thread and we wil be happy to help. THis trip is open to anyone, just have a capable rig, even stockers can make this, bring stuff like food, clothes, and shelter and a good attitude.

Sounds like we sould have a nice group going this time.

BTW: If you guys have CB capabilities that would be great. I'll post up a recommended to-bring-list later but CBs are one of the thing out of the normal camping preps so I thought I would mention it now.
