Anyone (Stock FJs to Buggies) in South Florida or near by want to head out into the middle of the everglades for some trail riding and camping are more than welcome to join us at Bear Island. Free event stickers will be handed out at Gator Head Camp!

If you want to hit the trails with us you will need to acquire the $50 permit, we can give you all the info you need just send us a PM. Basically you need to have all your street legal info up to date, working lights, and insure your tire width is 9in or wider.
HOWEVER! If you want to skip the permit and just ride out the 20mile grade road to the area (and see lots of wildlife) that is fine too! while all the trails are gated and only permitted trucks are allowed through, there is a camp site at the trail heads if you want to stay the weekend too. And we wouldn't mind carrying one or two people in with us if you wanted to see the trails.

I'd like to see the first trail run start at 1 from Gator Head, across Windmill, down and back Plains, then down Harold Strand, back up Ridge to camp. After that, the more adventures of us can hit the Cypress Camp trail. After we eat Saturday, we will do a (decided at the time) night run!!! Remember rules of the park are no driving after 10pm, so we will have to plan accordingly!!

Sunday will be a free day, I want to hit all 2ndary trails (mapped dotted lines)! Anyone who wants to try and follow can!

We will be using CB channel 5. Make sure to bring your cameras in case the elusive Skunk Ape should appear!!!! :eek:

EVENT "PLAN"

I need a volunteer to head up the meet at Oasis Visitor Center Saturday morning for the people that need permits or want to caravan to Bear Island together. I'd like the meet up to happen when the ranger station opens, that way it will give late comers time to show up while others are getting permits. Also we need to call Fri and let them know how many will be there Saturday morning for permits. Then you can drive to Subway for lunch/gas and meet up with everyone else no later than 1pm at Gator Head Camp.

I will already be at Gator Head Camp Fri Night, so that will be the Early Meet up spot for those with permits that want to come out anytime before Noon Saturday!

I'd like to see the first trail run start at 1 from Gator Head, across Windmill, down and back Plains, then down Harold Strand, back up Ridge to camp. After that, the more adventurous of us can hit the Cypress Camp trail. After we eat Saturday, we will do a (decided at the time) night run!!!
