I am also in for the big bike part. On a S10. This is my first rally but have been off road and just put a set of Heidenaus on. I will also be camping. Planning on staying at rainbow in cedar key. Any suggestions on camping in palm coast. Will be rolling in tomorrow evening from ATL.

I am out for the reverse rally, still in Jax and am not gonna be able to swing cedar key by the AM. May make it for the regular.
I'd like to get input on water crossings. I have never refitted the air box to the KTM carb on the DR and thus dislike crossing that come up high...
How high are the water crossings? If no one knows I'd be down have someone let me know post ride tomorrow if someone could commit to doing that.

Take a look a few pages back, I asked a similar question and got some good responses.

As I recall there is a decent one going east to west not too long after entering the forest, if you stay to either side, should be ok. There's at least one west to east (I didn't go thru it but it didn't look good, there appeared to be a detourl around) but it's on a bonus section so you don't have to take it. But, if you want the bonus section there's a side road just before the hole you could wind way around on but it would be time consuming. Some will likely ride it Friday so we'll know more tomorrow night.

Good to hear, if someone can post that would be great.

Is anyone driving over from Gainesville early Saturday morning and interested in trailerpooling or at least riding the bikes together?

I have been informed by unreliable sources that the couple in the photo, Waa Tu Deep, and girl friend Yu sow Fuk, will be pre-riding the East-West route on Friday and will have a full report at riders meeting on Saturday.
