Loughmans south to 520 would be a great run.

We haven't done Operation Airboat on the Kissimme chain. I know, I am kinda partial to these waters. I am sure Bob at Camp Mack would love to sponsor this type of event. It's centrally located and there is plenty of room at the pavilion to collect and box up.

I agree with Dawn but not sure which direction that would be on the poll. I think of it as more of "Centrally Located" as far as the peninsular part of Florida is concerned. Now that I think about it....everything is pretty much north for me except Lake O and the Glades.

I think Lake kiss would be the central spot. I voted East because it's East of me. Where else can we have this?

Loughmans is a great spot for launching with plenty of room for setting up the care package drop offs. We would be running south on the st. johns river along I-95. to 520 and could have lunch at lone cabbage fish camp. Skinny water trails and some wide open marsh with little or no deep water. Also plenty of good stops like paw paws mound, catfish hotel, possum bluff etc. Any further east we would be in the intercoastal. :D Let's do it!

Loughmans has some lodging and rv hookups as well as tent spots . Also the super 8 which is one exit south of 46 about 10 min away. There is also a KOA right around the corner from loughmans on sr 46 with cabins and rv spots.

LAKE WASHINGTON HAS A BIG PAVILION AND COULD RUN SKINNY WATER OR DEEP WATER ALL THE WAY TO 520 EAT AND RUN BACK . HIT THE SURVEY TRAIL TO OAK HEAD RUN THE PASTURE TO WINDER .THE SIDE OF WINDER TO THE TRAILS ALL THE WAY TO LONE CABBAGE THEN A DIFFERENT WAY BACK.

Hey we could go to my Dad's cabin as a middle point and have a barbecue, plenty room for all the boats to park and the cabin has a full kitchen with a full bathroom and shower with hot water. It is located just 10 minutes south of Lone cabbage. Here is a map just click on harry's cabin.

Like Woody said, Lake Washington has alot of room as well but I also like the whole Loughman thing as well. It was great there the last time, plenty of room and good riding anywhere. Up to you guys.
