There's something about The Scrub that it just naturally...
























kicks your ass






While policing the area before leaving...












I think I found Francis' big toe nail embedded in a root by the kegs

My (summarized) RIDE REPORT:

Got there late Thursday night (I think it was more like Friday am).

Rode all day Friday with Beef Jerky. Rode the ORV park in the NW corner of the forest. That shit was difficult. A lot of the trails were new, had some hidden cypress stumps, tight singletrack with SANDY turns. Very poorly signed trails there. But is was FUN in a sick demented way. Also rode the PIPELINE and around a BOMBING RANGE (weird stuff). Some pics:









Beef Jerky taking a BREATHER:


We found this AWESOME place called Juniper Springs and took a 3 hour break for swimming in this beautiful COLD spring. It was well worth the $4.26). I sure got some interesting looks wearing my Moose Sahara pants!



























Friday night was INTERESTING, to say the least. I'll let someone else tell THAT tale.




Sat am woke up and headed out again for an all day ride. JayDee was the navigator (most of the time! ) on his just-getting-broken-in 950 ADV. Sweet fucking bike. Next year, you'll be a pro JayDee! We had a couple other dudes with us on dirtbikes (sorry I do not recall everyone's names...I think you know why). Rode the POWERLINE trails which were nothing but WHOOPS AND SAND! I loved it! Found some crazy ass trails with tons of sand. KEEP THAT SPEED UP! Philip Kuntz (I always thought that was your REAL name!) bailed due to a slipping clutch (excuses, excuses), and somehow we all rode on when Francis needed gas.

We met a sherrif out there who was pretty cool. Just asked me if everyone had tags and licenses. Said Yessir and he said have a good day. One ranger talked to us FOREVER and then we had to follow him (he wouldn't give us room to pass). FIRST GEAR RIDING SUCKS!

Some Saturday riding pics:

(notice my kickstand is UP! )






Francis and JayDee getting JayDee's 950 healed up:




Nice scenery during the tire change though!


DEAD END! Swampwater sucks. Mosquitos do, too. That's 'Beyond Help' in front.














I took more pics but none turned out. It is time for a new camera.




After riding all day, we rode some slab back to Juniper Springs and took another dip. Headed back to the Scrub for RIBS.







Had a FANTASTIC time. I loved riding in the sand. I hit 95mph on a straightaway to catch up to BeefJerky. After that I decided to ride a more comfortable 65-70. I think I'll do it again this winter. It was good to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones. To all you lurkers: you need to come around more now!

To all the great advriders who prepared the food: THANKS ALOT! Now, because of you I have to lie to my wife's face and tell her that her pork chops are the best I have ever had. Man, the food was unbelievable. I even think Ara would have eaten it!

The Ranger was part my fault I was asken about the new trails. The good news all numered roads will likely stay open as they are now.
I'm glad I was prepared, I have been screwed without the spare tube.

Nice shot Flux! You caught me at the one time I wasn't bringing up the tail end. You FF's are too fast.

Flux, I am disappointed at you. No pix of the lovely lady you were fixated on while we were at the springs?

Tell ya what if ya need to find something half buried I can probably find it, repeatedly!!!

Tree hugging is more dangerous than it sounds.

Flux, it sure was good riding. Cool pic of the bike standing by itself.
Sorry I bailed man dehydration and fuel. I will be looking for a big gas can as my next upgrade, maybe i can keep up next time. See yall soon

It turned out that my clutch wasnt slipping after all, it just felt like it in that deep ass sand. I dont regret turning back, I made the right choice. I was under-prepared, and my riding skills are not up to par yet. I didnt have enough water to drink or fuel capacity to stay with you guys, and the broken lever was a bitch as well. I still had a great time and I am looking forward to meeting you guys again.

Here I am on Fri. morning ready to leave Ocala. I had never carried any cargo on the dirt bike, but it handled surprisingly well.


These guys had the camping thing down. I rode with them on Fri. and they didnt seem to enjoy the sand too much on those big 1200 GS Beamers.
