Okie coming to Fl.

Post by zrackers » Fri Nov 18, 2016 1:52 pm

I am headed to Fl Dec 5-9 to get a boat. I should have the 6-9 open to ride different areas. Would love to find some folks who plan to be out in a boat on these days who I could ride with to show me around. Never ridden the swamps ad it will be a huge change of scenery from what I'm used to. I'm not sure of a schedule or locations I'll be yet for these four days until I figure out where the best areas to ride are. My plan is to start somewhere at Kissimmee as I tried to ride it last year with this same power plant but spun a bearing and had to make the long drive home without ever getting out to run. Starting there will hopefully be my victory ride over this curse called airboats so to speak! Feel free to post here or message me.

Open to suggestions of best rides to make regardless of whether I have an escort or not.

If you make it down to area 3 (Everglades) I would be more than happy to ride with you. Area 3 is probably about 3 hrs south of Kissimmee , travel safe.............

I'm in area 2A catty corner from 3A and east of 3 north. I live in a cabin year round. You may be interested in spending time here at Old Glory camp. Google it on face book. That is my page. Also, "Skinny pockets" (brother) and Steve Reid are in nKissimmee and have boats.

Would love to see some races if there will be any going on while I'm down.

Old Glory, if I can make it that far south I'd love to see your camp. I've seen it talked about on here many times. Also curious if frogs can still be harvested this time of year. I grew up on them in central MO but have had terrible luck finding any here in OK.
