Stoked for our second Ace Cafe Orlando meet and greet! The last one had an epic turnout. Also excited for the ONF ride out.

Bring recovery gear. The trails we are taking you guys on are tight at times and you can expect pinstriping. Tall vehicles/vans may struggle in some areas, but we are doing our best to route around low-clearance. There will be soft sand, water crossings (stock clearance is fine), and some mud bogs (easier lines for stock height, soupy lines for the guys on 37" tires and up). This is a great opportunity for those new to ONF to experience a little of everything the forest has to offer.

Do we have any set location for the camping portion on this one? I just about have what I think is phase 1 of a quick over night / weekend camp setup ready to go. Testing it out this weekend for a boy scouts trip with the minions.

@ExGEO is the one that is mapping out our route and camping location. He and I are camping there this Wednesday and we should have a definite location by Thursday. When we do, I will update the Rally Point with the details and hopefully the route we plan to take everyone.

I have created the events camp location for every one who is planning on the convoy out to Ocala National Forrest (ONF).

Coordinates to the camping meet spot. Once every one has congregated at this location we will ride a short distance to the camp spot. Remember to pack all necessary gear before rolling out to the 'Ace Cafe' meet. Many of you will already be riding with Danan and I in Ocala so this won't necessary pertain to you.

Cell reception out in ONF is very unpredictable so come prepared with 'Walkies' (Chan 3) or 'CB Radio' (Chan 16). If any one needs to get in touch with me just call or text me (321) 666 1516 - Nick

Coordinates: (29.270246, -81.698055)

I’m going to pre-run our route next week and if there is any doubt of a trailer making it through I will definitely let you know. But we will be sticking to the designated trails and you should have no issues.
Thanks Danan. My first rig had 200k miles on her and fully geared out. This is a new rig and I am starting from scratch again...Thanks for doing a pre-run.
