the Glade should have a good amount of boats running this weekend .
I know we plan to ride to the Tower to cool off then to the Hilton to do a little test in tune.
then on the way back to 35 stop at the markers by camp 9
I have a new brake I been working on, I need to try out :lol:

Well i think we're pretty much set on not driving all the way to kissimmee but you know how that goes, Plans change at the last second :violent1:

We'd like to meet up with a few people out there and burn a little gas. I'm still not too familier with the area so it would be nice to tag along with someone that is

Weather permitting . :shock:

Which ramp is that? Is that the one off 27 at the Sawgrass recreation area?

No Not off 27.
It is on the Ally, mile marker 35 ,there is a big radio tower and the big Fire station.
There are two boat ramps on the south, the east one right by the Fire station and the west one that you have to take the crossover bridge ,unless your coming from the west then its the first ramp you see to the south when you pull off the exit. The west Ramp leads right into the glades Via a semi tight trail with blind turns on the way out, Best to follow another boat out if your not familiar in the area. once your in the glades it all pretty open. look at it on google to see what im sayin if your not sure.

Here is a basic Map of 3A might help with the general directions of some camps and tower.
But defiantly ride with other boats if you dont know the area, easy to get lost out there now with the water being high,
the trails mesh together with the slues if you get turned around.

I'm going out to 2A tomorrow night and then probably go down to the Tower on Saturday. Jump back on that horse, if you know what I mean. :lol:

Last Friday, Elevator Guy and I saw tons of frogs but all small. Perhaps bigger ones were coming out later but we had to leave. The sled was giving me problems.

I'll be driving down there Saturday morning. Not exactly sure what time but I'd like to meet up with a few people familiar with the area and tag along if that's possible. I've never ran out there so it would be smart for me to ride with some of yall that know the area

Just be at 35 MM by 10 and you shouldn't have any problem getting someone to run with.

People show up pretty much all day but earlier the better to beat any storms that might pop up.
