April 28/29

What's up guys

I'm going to be down in Marco Island the weekend of April 28/29 for work. I was wondering if anyone in the area was interested in getting together for a day trip that weekend? I'd love to take some coworkers out on a ride if possible.

And if anyone is interested, here's my the thread on my 4Runner build.
http://www.expeditionportal.com/foru...-4Runner-story

Mods? Can we add "South West Florida" to the thread title?

I cross posted it here as well since it's their area
http://www.gulfcoastjeepers.com/inde...oard,26.0.html

Let me know.

Yeah, but its a pretty far drive from Marco Island / Naples area to Daytona for Jeep Beach.

I'd get with some of the Miami and Broward 4x4 clubs. My buddy belongs to one of them and they are always going out to Big Cypress which is not that far from Marco Island.

*Edit:

When you're in Marco Island, take San Marco Road west over the bridge into the town of Goodland, make your first right onto the dirt road and there is a really cool restaurant / bar there.

Nice tip, i'll check it out. And I cross posted this a few place but it turns out that's the Jeep Beach weekend. So I doubt many people will be in the area that weekend. I'm only going to be down there for a work thing.

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

There is a group from The South Florida Jeep Club that will be going out for a ride & picnic through loop road. Then some of them will head out to Bear Island. Should be a good time!
Everyone is meeting at Dade Corners at 9:00 am.

Damn Dade Corners is almost two hours from Marco. I can't find bear Island or loop road specifically? Any more information? It'd be great to get out there. Also, what day are you guys headed out? Saturday or Sunday?

Loop road is about the mid-way point between Marco Island and Dade Corners. If you drive East on 41 (Tamiami Trail) it will be on your right hand side just after the bend.

Thank you for the invite. I'm definitely interested. What time are you guy taking off from Dade Corners and where exactly is bear island? I CANNOT find it on a map unless it's the actual island near everglades airport?. I did find Loop Rd though.

You need a permit to ride Bear Island. You can get it from the Oasis visitor center. The annual pass is $50. Loop road is free. It is a scenic ride down a dirt road. Nothing challenging as far as wheeling goes but good photo ops. Look for Turner River Rd, that is the road that takes you in to Bear.

Do you guys have any kind of schedule for the day? The visitor center opens at 9am to get a permit but maybe I could meet up with you guys for Bear Island?
