April 2nd 10am-1pm

Supports The Wounded Warrior Project. ($30 entry fee is cheap for a good cause)

Presented by Happy Trails 4X4

THIS IS GOING TO BE A BLAST WE HOPE EVERYONE CAN MAKE IT. We will start out at ORANGE PARK CHRYSLER JEEP DODGE RAM on Blanding Blvd for registration, free breakfast, and t-shirts!
The end point will be in CAMP BLANDING! We have access to off road trails if you want to get a little dirty!


Little know fact that Camp Blanding has some really nice 4x4 areas and they will be open for us!!!:rocker:!!!

For those of you, like myself, who dont like scratches the roads in are TANK trails.

You DO NOT need to have a Military ID to participate in this run.

I really dont feel like being the ONLY FJC in a sea of JEEP's, again. :lol:

I'd love to come over from Tallahassee for this. Good chance I'll be traveling for work though.
Just got the RC 3" lift and Goodyear MT/R Kevlars installed and am itching for some mud.

I might try to make this. I used to hunt there every year before 09/11/01shut it down. I'll let you know by the middle of this week. Does the part that's open include the south range? There's alot of hilly areas and a couple gullies.

Man I sure missed it. Hope it went well.
I figured everything happened out west. I live east of Tallahasse and could of easily drove over. I was at camp Blanding last month for 11 days. I got to hike around in the woods doing National Grid map work. Lots of deep sand. They trained many for the D-day landing on the lake there and housed alot of German POW's-pretty historically significant place.
Thanks for giving us something to do in Florida!
I will have to get my head out of the sand and be alittle more active on this site!

I would've been interested, just found this section of the site. If there is a next time, PM me, I'll be there if at all possible. All the places I used to wheel around here are gone now. Would love to find some trails.
