How are you in odessa and tampa palms? do you own 2 houses? Anyway real question is how dirty can that late model actually get? I would say the best place is probably citurs since there is no water there and Richloam is deep right now. There is a group from the suncoast flat landers meeting up there on saturday. I would suggest going as a guest witht hem since several guys really know the trails and and they welcome newbs to the group.

I was planning on going but realised I have a kayak trip to lead on saturday and I'n gonna go tot he pasco fair saturday night and try to buy a hog for an upcoming cook out.

I say we all get together for some beers one night.

No. Don't be like him, if you are still making payments be nice to it. I wouldn't beat the crap out of a new truck. Mine is 15 years old though so its ok.

Hey Boggerboy I have some family in Valrico, last name is Davis. Part of my family is from Balm and alot still live in the area. We got some orange groves and stuff down around Wimauma.

I got a shit ton of family south of Brandon and my grandparents will be down there in April when our orange groves get picked so I can stay with them. I can get a Gainesville group together (Toyotas + Jeeps)

I need to get out again soon, It's been since before the holidays. I look for road construction just to kick up some dust and "uneven pavement". :o

This Sunday I've got my 10 yr olds b-day party I have to do. But........... next Sunday the 12th I've got open.

I too am making payments for the next !! 7 YEARS !! So I don't take mine in deep water or beat it on a rock.

If someone knows Citrus or Croom or something similar I'm ready to go.

BTW : Hey Brad

Sunday would be good for me.
Do you know citrus ? I need a map of Citrus trails. I've only been there once a couple of years ago. I've been to Croom and I've got a map from their web site. (myfwc.com) croom wildlife management. Richloom is under water I hear. :eek: I don't do water.
Let me know, When and where.

I know a couple of the roads in citrus, I have not been through them all. I have not been to croom. How well do you know it? If you know croom we can go there, or we can go check out citrus. Fwc has a pretty good map of citrus also. I don't think either place is big enough to get that lost in. lol Hows early sunday sound? Maybe some other people will want to go and chime in also.

I found that map of Citrus, Thanks.
Either place is good with me, as long as there's bypasses around any water and as long as everyone knows my '05 is mostly stock.
Never been to Dover pits either.

TacomaHarry
03-11-2006, 02:23 AM
That sounds good to me.

How about meeting at hwy 50 and 275 at 9:00 am. there's a Mcdonalds on the right. When you exit to go east. And there's gas station right next door to top off if you need. Bring something for lunch and plenty to drink.

To bad my son can't go with his Jeep, he's always good for getting stuck or changing a flat tire.

I don't have a computer at home, So if something changes call me.

BTW : Anyone with a New or Stock that want to take it easy on your rig, This is the place to go.

A couple of us have been there before, and we all made it back in one piece.

Just my :2cents: worth if any newbies were considering going.

X 2

What's it like there, Wet ? Mud ? Sand ? Hills ?

Would you take a stock 05' that won't touch anything deeper than a few inches of water. If so maybe we can set something up for the 26th of march.
Maybe a few more will be able to make it than did last weekend.

BTW : Thanks Ben76 for being able to make it to croom.
To bad most of the little play areas were posted :mad:

TacomaHarry
05-11-2006, 03:44 AM
Can't make it this weekend :( .

But if you want to set something up for next weekend, maybe Sunday the 21st. Maybe we can get a good sized group to go. I've got a decent map of citrus mark with points of interest :rolleyes: . I'd be up for anything that doesn't have more than a foot of water.

05-11-2006, 07:44 PM
I get off work early on friday. If you want to go out in the afternoon I could meet you there. I could get over there about 2, and still have about 5-6 hours of daylight left. If you want to go before the place floods, it will probably have to be in the next few weeks. It looks like it can get pretty nasty with a lot of rain. I just got home from citrus and it was still raining up there. Not sure how much rain richloam has gotten. If anybody wants to try for tomorrow afternoon let me know.

I'd be up for a ride on Sunday the 21st.

A while back BR12349 (Brad) mentioned you knew of a different area in Croom. I'd be interested in checking that out too. If you can make it. While we are in the area we could check out places that were closed before and see if their open again.

I've got a new CB and antenna I want to try out. No more handheld CB with magnet mount. It had no power. Now I have a Cobra 75 WX ST with a 102" WHIP. That outa work !!

I think it was Cancel that was going to move down here. I'm not sure where the pits are aroung brooksville. I went up towards dunnellon about 2 weeks ago, to some of the pits up there. The ones just north of holder off 41. And they are starting to build houses. We go shooting up there, but I guess not for much longer. Soon to be another place lost to the wonderful world of development.

TampaTRDSport
05-18-2006, 11:44 AM
sunday the 21st, citrus is what i think everyone has decided on. As for the time and meeting place ill leave that for someone with more experience up there. We might also get more trucks to go if we started a new thread other than this one called "tampa" ?? Im lookin forward to this guys, but probably not as much as my truck is.

05-18-2006, 11:47 AM
