I was at the Fall event. It was a blast! You can see some of the pictures on the website. This time I'm going to camp-out and maybe do one of the "night runs".
I'll definately be there for Saturday and Sunday. Maybe Friday too if I can get there early enough.

I will be there Friday night and Saturday. I don't think that my girlfriend will make it until Sunday. After dropping her off at home, I would consider going back out on Sunday.
Where is the other site?
I have not been to either location yet, so I don't know what to expect.

The place on SR50 is about 45 mins away from Downtown Tampa. The park we are going to on Sat is much better than Ocala National Forrest in terms of the qulity of off-roading. By that I mean better hills, water crossings etc... You should really check it out if you have a chance. The name of the place we are going slips my mind, but if you PM me your cell I can call you when I find out. The trails we will be riding wont be EXTREME, but they will be quite difficult. But if I can make it and a pretty much stock 03 Ranger Rover can, then I'm sure you wont have a problem!

My Brother Daniel has the Chick-fil-A franchise at the Paddock Mall in Ocala. He has been trying to manipulate me to come down this weekend, but no can do...

Any G owners who are interested in some Chick-fil-A Sandwiches for the weekend, I will tell him to comp up to 20 and charge them to my business here in Mt. Pleasant, you'll have to purchase your own drinks and appitizers.

Call either of us if interested. Patrick 843 324-7406 Daniel 352 572-6511 in Ocala... anyone with an extra seat or two is welcome to invite him along... he will likely bring extras out of appreciation.
