Oh yeah, I forgot about that. I had a friend in High School that worked at a used car lot and they used it in the engine bays of the vehicles that they sold. I'll look into that option.

It's a mix of a lot.

You have a sandy-like path to get to a big sand pit area that has a trail that wraps around in a circle (haven't been all the way around) and then on the outskirt of all there's a muddy/mucky path.

I'll see if I can get a screenshot of the satellite image and label it for everyone to see.

Red dot - entrance
The yellow is the muddy/muck part.
The area above it is the sandy trail and sandy clearing.

(This was all based on Saturday when I went out there. Not sure how it will be Sunday)

Hello Fink,
Thanks for posting that info! I now have a better idea of what to expect this Sunday. What is the area below the yellow line? Any trails there?

Hello fgcutaco,
I hope you can make it. Get that truck dirty!

Looks like we are going to have good weather also:
Rain today & tomorrow.
Sun afterwards with partial cloudiness through Sunday.
Sat

66 / 19°
48 / 9°


Sun

70 / 21°
43 / 6°

From what I know of the area back there, there are alot of little trails back there. Some are ATV trails that might be a bit tight, but others are wider. I went back there again yesterday to see how bad it was with the heavy rain we just had, and it was about the same as when we went...

Just so you know fgcutaco, theres little trails that run along the really muddy areas so you can still bypass them if you feel you dont wanna try it...

OK. Cool. Thanks Dan.

He made it through everything with the 2WD...I personally think that you could make most of it...I was in 2wd except in the muck.

Where are you actually driving from? If you're actually coming from Sarasota, I wouldn't bother...

My 1 wheel driving did pretty good.
My worst enemy is the sand. Tires just dig like crazy in it.
But honestly if anyone gets stuck, it won't be an issue for recovery.

fgcutaco,

I am 2WD also. I have a limited slip diff but still 2WD. I only have a slight advantage over you so don't worry about it. Plus, almost everyone going is strapped...... "Tow straps, that is"

judging by what you wrote after the 99.9999996354679002%... I would say it sounds more like 99.99999999999999999999999.... LOL!
