Dude where's the picture of me stuck in the damn creek? For all the cleaning and scrubbing I just did there's gotta be pictures of that.

Looks like a successful scouting trip!!!

Quite a bit of variety on those trails..nothing extremely deep, but that's good,so what roads did you turn off of? were you very far from where we were the last time?

That second video is great..so, where is video of Casey's recovery?? that's what I wanted to see...

Frank, when you get a chance pm me those trails so I can add them into my GPS...

Can't wait to test the hull, and maybe even get stuck...

pfun41..dude, you think I would miss that opportunity???...watch the "Chocolate pump" video....YOU are the Chocolate Pump...roflmao...!!!! I moved you up from yellow submarine....

jermil01....the last part of the chocolate pump video has a real deep hole...that's why pfun41 and I decide to take the flank into it....the center path was, I would say 5-6 foot verticle drop in it...I approached it and the front end wanted to drop straight down.
The sound in the video being masked by music may make the drive look like no work, but those water trails did take some work to get thru...
The trails were for the most part unmarked on the map I had...except for the one with a river running a long way...that is Astor Transfer Station Road....awesome trail...
As far as Casey's recovery...well that's why we needed you guys there...tough to work out of "situations" and record it for posterity too...get your asses off the couch and get out here...lol. (My last name ain't Disney...) Mr. " I built my truck for mud and swamp".
Casey and I already have our plans for you....

Saltlife...ty...I definitely take that as a compliment from you bud...

Oh yeah and the Bronc incurred some damage to the passenger side in that Choco pump vid...she banged into the trees on that side where Casey was recording it and taking pics...just some character carnage...and a little flipped up rear fender well on the passenger side. When I get the mud off of it, I'll take some pics...

This is an interesting trail. I have been down it where there was no water and other times it was over the headlights.

And the same with the trail from astor transfer road.

GearHead...have you ever been on a trail named the "Longleaf trail"....it heads north and south in the Ocala and at one point sidles up next to Lake Kerr....looks interesting and runs for a good long way thru the forest...

At some point have probably been on part or all of it. I haven't set foot in the forest in probably 4 or 5 years.
I no longer have any maps from out there. Last I remember they changed the way all the trails were numbered anyway.

Well I finally uploaded what few pictures I have.
So uh for anyone who doesn't know, I don't like pulling 3 point turns when it isn't necessary so I tried to pull a big U turn. The ditch got in my way. The ditch was pretty knarly, just sayin.

I Managed to talk Frank into trying every mud hole first. Because when you still have a full interior and stock suspension you let others be the ginuea pig.

Back by lake George.

I made it all the way through the last run without interior carnage. And I soak the carpet on the scouting trip. Because everything is sealed EXCEPT the door seals.

yea man great videos! I think I will pass on the Chocolate Pump trail. lol

I can just imagine pulling my transmission dip stick after that trail and getting chocolate milk on the stick instead of Ford Blood.

Arrow Ocala: March Run ?

I am just checking to see if anyone would like to do a March Run to the Ocala NF to try out some more trails....I feel like the videos may be scaring people from furthering their trail adventures with me...lol.

Who's in ?

I make time where it needs to be.
Should I bring my chainsaw? Or should I just worry about avoiding ditches this time?
