Welcome to my world! LOL!

I drove 99 miles from my house to JW Corbett where I first met you guys & 73 miles from my house to that Regal Cinema spot.

BTW,

In this video when the Jeep is driving towards the entrance & he goes through the deep puddle that's where I drove through. I was afraid to stop because I was alone. Please forgive the dialogue. I don't know who these people are.

I don't know where in that hump area this is but I think it's behind the area where the video that Fink posted up took place:

Pretty far for us coming from Royal Palm, as for age, I'm pretty certain my daughter is older than many of you guys...

Seems I have some work to get done, build and install rear diff, balance and mount tires, reinstall Icons upon their return from Icon.

It's not yet. Still working on getting with this guy to work on it. I may just see about swapping tires. If I can clear the 33's without spacers on the old Yota, then maybe I'll go that route. Although the woman said she doesn't trust that she thinks something will break. I tried to assure her its a toyota and it'll be ok but you know how women are...

I'm 35 miles north of the meet-up place.
There's JW Corbett in WPB but the one time that I went there most of the roads/trails were closed. Anyone know if there are any spots in Broward County? That would be more central for the Miami & WPB group.

There's also the sw 8 st & 137 ave location in Miami. Type it in Google map search and you'll see the area northwest of that intersection. Thats closer to my house so I'll have a better chance of going out there sooner & take some vids/pics to show you guys.

Either the hump or 8 st are fine with me.

BTW, Everytime I type "The Hump" I can't help but smile.

jmangone,

You are correct. That is the best vid yet. Great Find! I saw bits & pieces of it (I'm at work) & I don't know what entrance they went in through but I can tell you this:

28:49 into the vid, when you pause it there, that is the part where the black Jeep Wrangler drove through (on the vid that I posted) that the commentator said it was deep. At this point in jmangones posted vid the Jeep would be driving from the left of the screen to the right. The Jeeps & dirt bikes are driving West towards Card Sound Rd, which goes South towards the Keys or North towards Florida City. Notice how dry that road is after 29:07. When I went there the water reached all the way to 30:27 in the vid. At 31:10 you can look to the left & you'll see the Racetrack gas station that we will meet at.

This was definietely during the dry season which is what I hope to encounter when we go in October. Even in the dry season there is still plenty for everyone, mud, trails puddles but it's better than the entire place being flooded.

This is the best vid yet of this area. I hope to have time to watch it all tonight.

Thanks jmangone!

I just watched the whole video & I think jmangone described it best. I should be OK in "some" of these areas.

I have a set (5) of FJ rims with 285/70R17 GY MT's that I've been trying to sell.









I may just put them on my truck the day of the meet. Don't know if they have better traction than the 265/75r16 BFG A/T's that I currently have. Believe it or not, no rubbing so far in city driving but I will remove my front mud flaps because I'm sure I'll lose them off-roading.

I was asking for $600 for all 5 but it's negotiable. I can PM you more pics if you'd like. I'll take pics of all 4 on my truck tomorrow so you have an idea.

No biggy. Was getting ideas for my other truck. Not even sure what will fit. I think it has like 29's now but with the body lift supposedly it'll clear 33's but that would be contingent on the backspacing and such.
