    Well, I just gave my bro-in-law a ride to his house and I asked him if he felt anything different in my truck. He knows that I lifted it but I didn't mention any vibe issues to him. He noticed everything the same. Thats good news

    Hey Fink,

    I saw your truck in a Youtube vid titled: Richloam 2 May 2011. That place looks like fun. Not far from Tarpons Springs so I can stay at my dads if I don't want to camp. Maybe something to look into in the future.

    It was fun but not sure how willing I'd be to do it again depending on how the weather is.
    We went when it hadn't rained in a while and you can see how bad it really was. Everyone else was 4wd. That place sits so low it collects water so if it's been raining, turns into swamp land. Got stuck a few times out there but it was fun.

    Just watched the whole thing. Brings back memories.

    Towards the end pictures are a mix of Citrus and Richloam.
    Citrus is the more clay looking place and where Jesse got stuck (took over 10 minutes and two trucks to get him out)

    Wow! It hadn't rained in a while? Well, there's still Citrus to look forward to. I am planning to make the trip next year or end of this one. Definitely during dry season.

    Citrus is fun when it gets a little wet.
    Mix of clay and a little mud here and there with some fun trails. Also keeps the dust down.

    Now Richloam...forget it if it has rained...
    Deff need a diff breather to play in all that water!

    Some of the places do look like the Citrus. Atleast, from the vids I've seen. I don't mind some water and I have the diff mod but I definitely would not want any water inside the truck.

    Regarding the "Regal" meet this Sunday, are those hills that TacoTues posted pics of still there?

    I don't remember seeing any hills. But I think me and Dan are going out to check out the area. We've had some serious rain these past couple days. May be flooded out there.

    Sorry to hear that Jerome. Hopefully next time. I haven't seen PMK or TacoTues post anything in a couple of days. I hope he's still going.

    Funny! I was thinking about that moment! It was also surprisingly easy!
    PMK said that he may be able to go but he's not sure. He will if he can. That's understandable. Hope to see him there.

    I'm just waiting to hear from TacoTues and, of course, who ever else wants to go AND who ever wants to invite any other friends. Looking forward to see the Dakota out there too!

    Maybe Jerome will show up after all.

    Hello all,

    Well, my friend Manny, just like last time, just finished telling me that he can't make it. Looks like it will be my wife, youngest son, & "maybe" another friend in my truck. I will revise the list on the first post in a minute. Hopefully more will join. I haven't heard from Fink or Dan so I don't know if they had a chance to go out there today.
    Thanks

    The "hill" is the side banking of the drainage canal. The canal is not like most canals, this one was built to take super heavy rains and drain it into the real canal then off to the ocean.

    At the west end of the drainage canal it ramps up similar to the sides. Very mild rise back to the typical flat ground level.

    Thanks for the info PK. Hope to see you there. Fink, sounds like we'll be fine out there. I just hope more trucks go. The list is short.
