    Ocala's a lot of fun. not very technical as far as offroading goes, but a great time never the less. another member and myself went a few months ago. and since then, i think another small group went out there. i don't know if i can make it for that weekend, but i'll let you know.

    in case you need one, here's a great map http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5192654.pdf

    If so I'll be there Friday-Sunday morning. I got a real nice primitive camp spot on farles lake?(some boat-able lake) not too far from big scrub, I would roll into big scrub to meet up.

    From intersection of SR 40 and SR 19, go west on SR 40 approximately 8 miles, turn south on FR 588, go south approximately 8 miles to FR 573 (campground is on right). You also can access FR 573 from SR 19 or FR 588 from SR 42.you can google big scub as well.if you need any more help pm me or call at 407-925-3487.we can camp any were we want to but i was using bigg scrub as a meeting place and if we want to we could camp there.any suggestion on where to camp is fine with me.

    Colin, thanks for the map. On my way back from the Keys this weekend I was thinking about looking for a map. Rode through the Forest many times but never stopped anywhere. There are plenty of places to check out.
