    Neat. Not sure if I've been to the first place, I'm usually lost exploring when I'm on 17. I have spent a lot of time in the ok slough. That's a nice place to explore. I want to take my son camping there some time.

    ANYONE FOR A RIDE TO THE KEYS?

    I grabbed a tent site at Curry Hammock state park for this Saturday 5/20/17. Would not mind some company for ride or split tentsite. Other than that plans are pretty vague. I live on Sanibel. Thinking ride Sat AM to KW via 41, spend nite at campsite, maybe detour to Flamingo Visitor's Center on way home.

    It's a little too hot to camp for me. I'm a few weeks I'll be taking my son camping in the Smokey mountains for a week. We will be doing the Smokey mountain 500 dual sport route in our Jeep. Camping weather is a little nicer up there, haha.

    That's is a very nice road. I usually ride through picayune stand and Jane's scenic drive as well on my way to the keys. I haven't ridden all the way to key West tho.

    Has anyone been riding the Webb WMA lately?
    I am new to area took a car ride there went as far as the gun range. Would like to go back with the bike I am riding a Yamaha WR250R dualsport. Just making sure motorcycles are allowed back there as long as your registered and insured? Would love to tag along and learn the roads. Thanks! I came from riding the Pine Barrens on Dirty Jersey

    i dont know about webb, but fwc kicked us out off zemel road where we used to pay our fee and ride the trails--said its only hunting now, and there is notification of this somewhere in the website. i imagine the site for webb has the answer somewhere too

    I was wondering about that area off Zemel Road also, I saw the sign to pay the fee. Do they let you ride during the hunting off season?
