Off-Road Fun
« on: February 03, 2008, 09:30:19 AM »
I do get off road with my 13 MPG SUV.  Here's a few snaps.  Of what I got into or rather got me this past weekend.

Sweet! Gator, where are some places around here to go? I normally go out to Osceola or down to Ocala.

Osceola is the place of course, but Interlachen is where mom bought her lakehouse so I got to spend some time down there.  There's fun little area off N. CR-315 at Silver Lake Dr.  Try the google map you can see the property.  Silver Lake Dr Interlachen, FL or Silver Lake Dr, Interlachen, Putnam, Florida 32148, United States.  I've not been there in over a year, I hope it's still there.

Not sure where you are but from OP it's about 30 minutes.  Its 60 minutes door to door from Avondale.

The property is small but if you're down that way you can ride an off-road bike, or take the 4x4. 

Do you have a 4x4, or bike?

Oh, I remember an area to the south of Tinsletown and north of Blue Cross and blue shield.  The lot was empty, you could get out there and have a smoke--it's where the BCBS-FL smokers go in their cars to smoke since BCBSFL is a smoke free campus.  Something was being built on the lot next to the smoker's parking lot, but if you're lucky you'll find it.  Just pull off the road where you see dirt if you can make it.  I didn't make it as you  can see from above.  I needed about 5 people to push me out.

If you like off-roading, you've got to watch this vid.
