I don't know anything about this, just saw it posted on the Flatlanders site.

Hmmm. Mud. I like the camping by the lake part, though. What's the terrain like in that area? Flat? Or does it have some fun elevation changes, like Citrus?

The Flatlanders are trying to figure out exactly where this is?

My guess is that it is FLAT LAND,,,, but do not really know, yet! :)

Do a Wikipedia searchg for "Orlampa" and I think you will have a good idea of where this is. Orlampa is a "made up city" that was developed by Kermit Weeks who also owns the "Fantasy of Flight" aviation museum and aerial tour company. The theory is that Orlampa is where the sprawling metropolises of Orlando and Tampa will someday merge. I don't know this for sure, but I'd bet money that Kermit Weeks owns the land and is looking for another way to bring traffic to his little corner of the universe. Not that I fault him for it, maybe it's a cool spot!

Yea, most likely.

I've seen the dude once on his tour there @ F.O.F. His name is Kermit Meeks, not Weeks. Rich guy who inherited a ton of money... You've gotta wonder when they tell you that on the tour. :lol:


It looks cool, maybe someone will take a ride out there and see how it is.

I am in Ft. Lauderdale, as much as I would love to have a nearby place for mudding, I think this is some park that is mostly for cycling and they made a small part with mud. Besides landfills, i havent seen any hills.
