  1. Hey Ross, I’m in ! this is a good place to practice off camber driving. Plenty of washouts to go up an down with a mix of sand an mud even some clay . Be camping on primitive side of holder mine camp. Also plenty of firewood to cut and lighter knot though out the forest. Those of you that have never bin to citrus forest will fine it to be a blast ! It’s almost 15 miles from North to South and 6 to 8 miles across East to West. Very easy to get a 30 mile ride or more in a day ! Looking forward to this event as it will be a great camping trip and trail ride.

  2. so since i'm new to the area,  is it best to reserve a spot or do a walk up, and if there's nothing available can you disperse camp?

    The reserved sites online are for the full facility part of Holder mine campground. The primitive section is across the road and there are approximately 60 or 70 primitive sites you can choose from. And you pay $10 in an envelope and put it in the box and you should be good to go.

  3. Ok I just called the ranger station. To stay at Holder mine primitive sites you will also need a small game hunting license. If you do not want to purchase a hunting license you can stay at the mutual mine primitive sites which is not too far away.

    Thanks for the info.

  5. Hey guys , if u do buy a hunting license with a management stamp it will allow you to stay in any wma that offers camping an trails during hunting season in FL. Without a hassle.

  6. There are sites in the primitive hunt camp, you would need a hunting license and a WMA permit, $10.00/ night. There are walk up sites in the full facility side but first come first serve. We just took a day long ride there yesterday. trails are mild to wild and the wild parts have bypass trails around the technical parts, so it’s really up to you.

    Think my stock 4Runner will be alright to go through?

  8. Ross & Co. I just joined OB. I’m Rafael aka ABTK01 coming to you from Orlando. Been wanting to challenge myself and rig with some overlanding but knew better than to venture out alone. I’ll be meeting you in my gray gen 1 2004 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD.

    Cool. Are you camping at the primitively sites with us?

  10. I have a question.  Will we be setting up camp once, Friday, and then returning to it the same campground Saturday after after trail riding? Rafael

    We will set up base camp and keep it all weekend. That way we have more time to explore and relax at camp. Did you get your hunting license and WMA stamp?

  11. Cool. Are you camping at the primitively sites with us?

    Yes, I will be joining the crew at the primitive sites. After reading the thread, I had already planned on getting the small game hunting license.  I plan to pick it up on my next trip to WM.  Will I get the WMA stamp when I get the license?

  12. No, you have to add it on to your license, It's like 26 bucks but it lasts for a year and gets you in at all WMA parks. Including Ocala NF hunt camps.

    Just purchased my WMA license so I’ll be on the holder mind camp sites with you guys, I do have a mutual mind reservation if some one might be interested if not I need to cancel in a couple days.

  13. hello every one I’m a new member, this will be my first time overlanding, been waiting for an event in Florida, I live in Miami. I have the hunting license with MA but not sure witch camp we are meeting up, Mutual or Holder?

  14. Hey All- My friend and I ran into you guys on the trail. One of your members in camo pants and a cool jeep helped spot us through the obstacles. I appreciate the help and the Stickers! Looking forward to learning more about your group

    I've changed my plans on the ONF weekend to join in.  I'll skip Ace Cafe as I plan to make camp on Friday.  Looking forward to seeing you there.

  18. So Ruben,  the pics are great.  Props to your photographer/daughter, Kiah (sp?).  She was critical for all of the action shots.  The most important question now is…will she be joining you/us at the ONF ride in less than two weeks?
