Can't go this weekend but I'll make sure I keep your name handy for when we head out next time....

Hey guys, I've been lurking for a while around here but I'm hoping to get more involved now that I'm about to be the proud owner of a 2007 V-Strom 650. I'd love to do some overnight/weekend camping trips so if anyone is interested, I'm in. Also, I'm interested in the first-aid class so I'll keep an eye on this thread and hopefully be able to participate.

^ ^ ^ Welcome, Sutto! It'll be many months before I'm willing to sleep outside with no A/C in Florida, but when the weather permits, I'd love to do some camping... that is, if LarryGee ever fulfills his part of our trade and gives me his tent!

Anyone know of a campground near the high hat ranch near Sarasota FL. I am going to be there the first and second of December and don't want to spend a hundred bucks a night on a room. Pm or post please.

I have two under my belt Georgia 2012 and Carolina's 2012. Volunteered the last day ( Sunday ) and had a blast.
My arm won't let me do anything for a while so I will be working this one.

It's great. I look at it as a self punishment thing you can enjoy. ( Tough Mudder)
I will either be working the start or finish both are great spots.
Got any questions give me a buzz.
Do you know of any areas to camp in the area?

Next week you should be getting your official start times. Start times are loose and if all want to go together that would be ok.
Post it as we'll.

I live in Sarasota, most of the camping around here is "RV camping". On the east side, there is Myakka State Park which has tent camping. It's on Clark Rd, which is SR72 - it runs parallel and south of Fruitville, which is where the Hi Hat is. You would have to drive west from the park and take I75 up to Fruitville, then back east. You can go east from the park but its a little hike to Sidel Road, then north to Clay Gulley and back west to Fruitville. There is quite a bit of tent camping in Venice and around North Port, but that's a long way from Hi Hat.

My team disappeared! The "leader" was a trainer at my gym, and he's having back surgery, and the rest of the team bailed. I had 11 teammates last year! Guess I'm doing it solo this year!

I e-mailed TM and they said I can start any time as long as it's the same day as when I registered, Sunday. Bummer...

Edit: I received my start-time e-mail today...
