Curious what else you are all in to...
I do saltwater aquariums and motorcycles.
I am pretty big into landscaping & lawncare if that counts (no I don't do it for a living, I'm in an office all day). It was actually one of the reasons I got my Ranger. I'm always getting fertilizer / mulch / trees / bushes / stones / etc etc . I needed a truck to keep up with my obsession.
PS: Nice bike!
We have a camp in Central Florida (River Ranch) that has ATV riding. There are 4 couples that share the site.
Love the place and go there every 2 weeks. We live in South Florida. It's about a 3 hour drive but well worth it.
At this time of year Im usually riding this thing, its been a crap year around here, but I hope to get one more trip north in before spring.
The rest of the year I travel all over the place on this thing, a lot different, and Im sure way less comfy lol, than Mikes ride, but it goes a lot of different places.
Other than that, its hunting, hiking, canoe trips and general travel or just hanging out at the beach here.
My big interest is hiking - and many of the Forest Service roads I use to get to trails are rather brushed in, so the narrower the truck the better - hence the Ranger. An F-150 was out of the question for me. I also bought the White Platinum as I'm hoping the white will help to hide the brush scratches in the paint. I currently have what is essentially the magnetic color (not sure what it was called in 2005) and the scratches show up pretty well in that.
I have a bunch of hobbies....hunting, fishing, welding, trapping, woodworking, riding my motorcycle, gunsmithing, home improvement. I went to school for welding (Hawkeye Comm College-1987) and gunsmithing (Colorado School of Trades-2013). I'm working on my new kayak (see my other post) and very patiently (not) waiting for the metal for my 1929 LC Smith Field Grade, Feather Weight, 16ga SxS shotgun to come back from getting rust blued and color case hardened. It's been almost a year, so it should be here in the next 6 months....I hope. Here's a few pics---
I like to build things out of dead tree carcasses. Shoot some guns. Break parts on my Jeep, and eat med-rare steak.
Getting grease under my nails
I've been up in the air about getting a dual sport @toddiscdn, thinking about picking up a DR650.
I'm an outdoors guy most of the year, though I tend to hibernate in the winter much more than I used to. Enjoying hiking, boating, fishing, bow hunting, metal work, electronics, bacon etc
I gave up competitive shooting to save my hearing when the tinnitus became too pronounced. Now, its inshore fishing. I'm looking forward to getting the Ranger to pull the boat rig and so I don't leave her Escape, the only tow vehicle we now have, sitting in a marina parking lot all day. Will be exploring some new areas in Florida this year with the boat once the Ranger has passed the 1K mileage point.
Im a bit of a photographer when I have the time...The truck will be getting some love on this end once it arrives.
I stayed at a camp for years in pinecrest..across the street from the bar..next to jack gov’s at Merrill vans place..we had a camp out of scorpion head..
Doc, Pinecrest is an incorporated city within the greater Miami metro area. A few bars on US1 but no camps.
There is an old ghost town called Pinecrest out in the Everglades, on Loop Road. Supposedly had some history with Al Capone back in the day. I have driven by there a couple of times but don't recall seeing any place to camp.
You are very correct..my camp was on loop road across the street from the pinecrest bar and grill...in the middle of the 40 mile bend and Monroe station. The bar is no longer there but the road house still is...Merrill died last year and we don’t go there anymore..too many airboat rules and it’s no longer fun since the park put their 2 cents in...btw ..that’s where Irvin rouse lived who wrote the orange blossom special for Jonny Cash..also the steps of Capone’s gambling house is on Merrill property...small world anyway..
Ps the road house is a concrete block house..our camp was 13 miles in by airboat
