Lakes? There's no fewer than 20 of them in a central area.

I'm gonna hit up Google Maps this week and search around for places. If I find something promising, i'll take a drive out there and see if the location is valid. Google Maps is out of date in some places, and I want to make sure there aren't trees or something hindering the location.

I've been searching Google Maps looking for places that don't have trees. It's harder than I thought it would be. I've been sticking to SR40 since it's an easily accessible road, however, there doesn't seem to be many tree free places directly off of 40. I need to expand my search. It's gonna take awhile.

Anybody wanna help?

Sweet. I looked up and down SR 40, and most of the areas that looked clear were actually prescribed burn areas that are probably covered in shrubs by now.

If you find anything, post it up and i'll see if I can check it out.

How far away is from you. Would you be willing to just take a drive? I would even maybe consider getting together and taking a drive out to scope out the area.....

It really depends on when I go and how far away.

If you have nothing better to do, we could work somethin out where you head up and we scout out the area. If you wanted, we could scout out some trails, since your truck would be more off-road capable than my truck is. That's where I would fall short, since my truck sits a little lower, and my tires aren't the best.

I can scout out a few open areas though, as long as I know where to go.

That would work out great for me. I know exactly where that's at. I can head out there one day and get a more accurate idea of how many trucks we can fit.

As far as a target area goes, I'm not too sure.

I think it sounds a little better than the Walmart (no offense Pat) And man after looking around on google I say we just meet and drive lol there are ton of areas out there! Not to far from the visitor center too. It would help if we had "some" knowledge of the area but i think we will be fine if we kinda wing it.

Agreed. Pat was just concerned about having a physical address for people to find. So the OVC will be fine since it has a physical address.

I have a general knowledge of the area, but not when it comes to deep in the ONF. If someone has a GPS, then we should be fine.
