We should do a small jeep night at Sonic in Middleburg one night. Maybe make it a jeep dinner night once a month and choose a different destination.
Now that would be cool!

Anyone have any recommendations for places to go near Sarasota, Fl. I recently moved here from the east cost and im not sure where to go. Also would love to hook up with a Jeep club in the area but not much is happening right now. I feel like I have exhausted google and forum searches. I also made a separate forum post for this if you would like to contribute there. Thanks for the help.

How about July 11, not set in stone, we’ll see how that works, if more can go the next week we can change it. We are going to scout a new spot, not far from where we go, supposedly it’s got a couple nice obstacles, we’ll see.
If the 11th is happening, count me in on that one. Some personal stuff has kept me busy, but I’m freed up this month now.

let’s make it happen!

Thanks brother.... it’s 2 hours north of you, straight up 75 to CR 44 and hang a left. It’s in Inverness, the Withlacoochee State Forest. We’re trying to get some guys together to run a trail on the 11 th, if you want to join, more than welcome.

Is 18 th a possibility for you? If not , no biggie we can still shoot the 11th, the 12 th, Sunday would be less busy if that’s an option? The wife and I found another spot, it’s really cool but not much of it, could get crowded.

Just so you guys know, whomever setup the Jeep Badge of Honor in Ocala did NOT check with the Forest Rangers. If you get caught on those trails you can face a VERY steep fine....and huge amounts of trail rash. Those trails are for UTVs and smaller.

And generally speaking, Ocala is primary for UTVs and smaller vehicles.

Here's FL Jeep Rides showing the trail is also closed to Jeeps.

According to the USDA website on the trail, it's open to Jeeps specifically.

Hey Poynter - I'm in the same boat. Just moved to Bradenton area (literally moved in the house Tuesday) and will be looking for local Jeepers, trails and get togethers. I know @Wabujitsu is local and will be my guide once I get settled in some.

Roky! My man!! Got my plate full right now, but will free up a day if at all possible whatever you guys settle on and try to get to Ocala.

Poyntne, as Buck mentioned, I live in Sarasota, east of town by Myakka River State Park. Welcome to the area!

There are two places, one in North Port, and one small place close to us. Private message me and I will tell you how to get there. It is very close to I-75, just off of SR 70.
