I've been ready for over a week now!  All I've got to do is a pack some drinks and snacks.  
 Are we having lunch at the trucks, on the trail, or the restuarant ?
 How many riders are expected to be there ?
 
 

Usually eat on the trail, Delancy Campground & use the picnic tables or @ the Lake Oklawaha
trail head, stoping along the way for a couple short breaks it takes me about 6 hours to do the outside loop of the trails. The last time me & the wife went to the resturant there was a 25 min.
wait to get seated & took almost 8 hours to do the loop. I try to stay close to the 20 MPH speed limit, makes stoping easier when meeting others headon that are hauling ass!!!  

If everybody shows up there should be 10 or so wheelers (counting Carlos's 2 freinds & Larry & June).
 
If somebody else wants to lead the way & go faster thats ok with me, i'll keep up. I'm getting to old to get F'ed up in a headon collision!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

June and I are definitely going. What time should we be at the trail head at 316?

This will be our first time there and we will leave early so that you won't have to wait for us.

June has a Honda Rancher 420 4 wheel drive, but I'm going to leave my Grizzly 550 at home and bring the little Grizzly 300 2 wheel drive. If it's dry, I actually have more fun on the 300 than the 550.

The 2WD will be more than adequate, just have some extra gas just in case.  I will be there about 9:00.

Too bad we have conversed a few times about ATV's . I was hoping to meet you.
 I'll meet you all at the trailhead. I'm an early riser so I'll grab breakfast along the way and get there early for a short warm up ride.
 The Ozark 250 has made it around there once without fuel.  However my wife was riding it.

June and I went to this group ride this morning. We got up there at 8:55 AM. We kept taking small rides thru the woods, then returned to the parking lot to see if you guys were there yet. Finally at 11:05 AM, I said "screw you" and went riding with Palatkat who did show up. I thought " what a bunch of worthless friends I have". I couldn't call anybody as I had no cell phone service.

We had a good time and after Palatkat left, June and I drove another 54 miles for a total of 106.1 miles, 9 1/2 hours with very few breaks. After we were driving home and regained our cell phone service, I expected to receive some messages explaining of why you abandoned us. Nothing ! No apology or anything ! I thought " How can people do this to other people!"

A little south of Daytona it occurred to me, maybe the ride is on Sunday. Oops !

Sorry guys ! My mistake ! It is on Sunday ! I always ride on Saturdays. Hey, I'm 65 years old and I'm lucky if I can find my way home again when I go out.

I'm dead tired right now, but if I have any energy in the morning, I may drive the two hours back up there and ride with my good, good friends who will forgive me for thinking bad of them. If I'm not there by 10 AM, I will not be there.

You may all laugh out loud now !

That's for sure Carlos ! I am crazy and really did have a good time! June drove every one of those 106.1 miles with me and just as fast. In 2 months she will also be 65.

I really liked riding there  !
