    in previous years the lake mary has been a staging area for those that arrive early. that was years ago though things may have changed.

    hope this helps...

    Hope it happens. I'll be hitchin up there to hit gville, micanopy, and see the wild horses at paynes prairie anyway. Haven't been there in a while.
    Tramps will probably be in the area, out of habit, this year.

    I've read ONF also has 180 days primitive camping available to anyone so I don't see how it'd be illegal to camp there, no matter your affiliation. But after all, there's always prejudice, and the leo don't have to record their interaction with you in the forest. Nothing we're not used to.

    So as far as I know there are people in the woods now. Fat kids kitchen probably won't be there for several reasons. One we feel ocala needs a break as do many others. Two we have a new bus that is not ready yet. There is a crew trying to get it street legal. But regardless of this there will be and there are people in the woods. Undecided if ill be there or not. I Might go help gate since fat kids won't be there. Not sure yet though.

    Spring Creek holding camp directions- From 19 at Altoona turn onto CR 42 toward Paisley. Stay on 42 to Lake Kathryn, then left on FS 06. Stay on FS 06 to FS 77 (look for pile of rocks) turn right then look for brown fencing.
