the real florida!!

took my new to me transalp out for a ride today. thought i would show you some pics of florida away from mouseworld & people!! these were taken about 50 miles northeast of tampa in the richloam/claysink area of the green swamp. lots of sugar sand that was a pain to ride in---still dry here--a lot of this area is underwater when we are getting normal rainfall. the transalp suprised me---did excellent!!

normally i would be in about 3ft of water here & fighting off gators!!

more of the trails!--the "main" road was the worse--lots of deep sandy ruts.

Nice looking Trans Alp, you should come ride with the fleas!

They were out there in Richloam last weekend. Thats some real nice riding for around here. ONF is hit and miss, some of us are working on marking the good stuff though.
