Visiting Ocala this Sat/Sun. Wanna show a Miami guy some trails?

Hello Ocala area TW members:

I will be driving to Ocala on Friday night to take my son & 2 of his friends to the Wayne's World paintball tournament located at:
4841 S. Pine Street,
directly across the street from the
Ocala Drive-In Movie Theater screen.

I've driven through Ocala a few times but never stopped there.

Any good 2WD friendly trails in this area & is any one interested in going out there with me either on Saturday or Sunday? Preferably Saturday but either will do.

Here's a pic of my truck. Mechanical LSD & my A/T tires are the only traction aid that I have. Just looking for some fun that my truck can handle.

PMK posted this on the South Florida BS Thread:

FWIW, you might see about some mild easy trail stuff in the Ocala National Forrest. Do your homework first. Bring a GPS too.

Anyone like to meet here or anywhere in the Ocala area this weekend?

If no one can go can someone at least recommend any easy trails that I can go through alone

I'll be leaving Miami for Ocala at around 8:30.

I'll keep an eye on this thread.

Thanks!

Thank you river rat 69. I can do hard packed. It's awesome that you actually have a chance to see bears during the day! That road looks fun! I'd still be concerned being out there alone but there may be other people out there too.

What's B-pit? Not the pic that river rat posted, I hope. Thank you for that offer!

Well, I've been back at Wayne's World paintball tournament for a bit now. Michael & I went out to the Highlands & it was FUN! We were both able to drive through the section with the soft sugar sand without airing down & without getting stuck. It is EXTREMELY PEACEFUL out there once you shut the trucks off.

Had a good time with a cool & friendly person.

We both took pics/vids. I sent what I have to him so he can post all of them since I won't be near a computer for a few days.

THANKS MICHAEL!!
