CITRUS CO. SLIDERS, WEIGH IN.....

Postby pierson skunkape » Tue Mar 18, 2014 2:20 pm


Those videos out of yall's back yard are one of the only reasons I make it to beer30 most work days..... Keep em' rolling.... and the reason for the post.. hauling my DD airgator your way this weekend, all that rain this winter, thought i might be able to run some of those areas I see so much on my 17" screen. Looking for a place to stay-camp, close to some good sliding. the hernando area looks great on google earth.?? dont know about running the river side.. dont know if the ol' beater will make it over those dam slides.. :dontknow: somewhere to stay onthe water near 44... I know im throwing out a big net here...open to any and all suggestions....

If you are looking for primitive camping on the river, check out: http://www.swfwmd.state.fl.us/recreatio ... potts.html
You could put in at the Turner Camp boat ramp. Hey, it's right on the river, and it's free!

Here are a couple more videos to feed the addiction. The Citrus County Airboat Alliance is have our annual cookout and meeting this Saturday at 1:00 at Armantes. There will be plenty of us out riding before and after the meeting. Hope to see everyone out on the water this weekend seems like the work week is dragging by.

I'm sure if you put in at hernando boat ramp you should find someone to follow out and meet up.

Great videos. Made me very nostalgic. Bought my first airboat in 1998, ex-tour boat pig with a 500 caddy dd. But oh the fun we had with it. Couldn't even begin to imagine running dry but actually ran very sweet and could haul a dozen or more like-minded peeps with ease. For the first two or so years we had it, if we weren't on vacation or traveling, we went literally every day. When it was cold my wife wore snow ski clothes.

Have had four more since then; and a lot of fun (and trouble too) but that great big pig was the best.
