No but I don't particularly like Rancho either...I just rode all weekend at Ocala, it was fun. I'm uploading some vids now...I may be going to a smaller trail sometime this week if you want to come up.

I'll probably make a post in a few once I finish editing some vids. I forgot about that damn storm...maybe next week then. the nice thing about ocala is it's very sandy and it rarely if ever gets flooded on the trails. usually just a few puddles here and there.

Do you need a permit to ride at Rancho ?
no but the county shut down the house that let people park on there land for a small fee....

GOT THIS OFF OF TAMPARACING

Well, boys and girls, it has happened.
Polk County Code Enforcement has CLOSED the parking area. Rancho Zephyrhills parking area is done. It was fun while it lasted. Thanks to all who participated
and enjoyed . Everyone will have to find another way in. They think that closing the parking area they will people from going to Rancho. Fat chance!! Please let everybody know so they will be aware.. It was fun and we'll cya around.


Just so you guys know. Polk and Pasco are teaming up and have given landowners and neighbors some options. Sell the front lots to the county for $1 but the county will reissue tittles make original owners part owners. The county will fence the front. The other option is to get ahold of front land owners and get the property surveyed and then each lot fenced. This is to give trespassing warning/warrants. IDK why they are only worried about the front?

They WILL be coming out over the entire property soon but since its private the only thing they will be doing is monitoring and giving littering tickets. They will issue them at the max too which is $500.


so lets enjoy before they shut this place down....

Muddy not really, I'm not into the mud thing at all anymore. There's no camping directly at most trailheads but there is one "primitive" camping area at Delancey near Salt springs and a few RV parks/campgrounds near all of them. I'm going to Wandering Wiregrass near Altoona when the weather clears up.

Title or a bill of sale that shows ownership...I have some vids at Wandering wiregrass (under RangerX5 on Youtube). it's basically a 10 dollar fee to ride there but most of the time no rangers are there anyways.

Wire grass looks like fun but,delancy looks like you had alot more fun.Even it looked like those guys were kind of leaving you behind at times,when you really got on the gas you caught up with them. I want to go riding in these places one time wiht you guys.How far are these two places from miami,fl? Delancy and Wandering Wiregrass.

Yeah I like to give them a little room then I nail the gas...cause a couple times I'd almost run into the back of them. I ride at a pace I feel comfortable with, and the other guys have way more experience than I do riding.

Both are probably 4-5 hours away from miami...if you were to make a trip up, I'd recommend delancey for sure, it's about 10 times as big as wandering wiregrass.

Hey guys, we are planning a trip to CROOM on the weekend of November 26/27. This is the weekend following Thanksgiving. So far I have approximately 14 people from South Florida that will be making the trip. Let me know if any of you guys want to meet up there.

I might be interested in going then, we'll see how it looks when it's closer. I'm about 1.5 hours from Croom but haven't been there in over a year now...I think the stickers will be down to 50 bucks then.

Sweet, my buddy has a CRF250R (red bike in my vids). I'm waiting on a bracket for my shock rezzy and the raptor will be ready to go, just got most of the crap swapped around today. If I can find a way to secure my rezzy I might be up for a ride sunday.
