Lazy Springs January 2015

This post should've come out in late January 2015, however it is coming out now, hope you enjoy it nearly as much as I did being there!

Children have playgrounds, dogs, dog parks, so what do Jeeples (Jeep people) have? Off-road parks of course! With the new year starting what better way to spend a Saturday than with 50 of your closest Jeeples playing in the mud, trails, and rocks at Lazy Springs Recreational Park, in Felda Fl.

We started by meeting up at a rest area on alligator alley where Jeeples from all over the southeast Florida tri-county area gathered to organize a 50 (+/-) Jeep vehicle convoy.

Once at Lazy Springs, the parade of Jeep vehicles continued, and we caught up with some friends who had arrived earlier that day. Mark Baker from Night Sun 4x4 in the Night Sun 4x4 Support Van, offering a shaded area for people to get some rest from the sun and burgers and cold refreshments to those who stopped by.

Bob and Laura from Sugar Shakers Motorclub were also present and offering a shaded area for Jeeples to get out of the sun. 

Laura and Kevin from Jeeps Gone Wild, where also running around in their Willy's vehicle.

Stat Packs and Heartsine AED from Safety & Rescue Training, LLC were on hand in case of medical emergencies

Locked N Loaded Motorclub was also on attendance hanging out with Jeeps Gone Wild and having a blast on  the Willy's

Karnage Motorpsorts with their White Elephant

Not a Jeep vehicle, but a very nice built Tacoma, it reminded me of the one my friend Bart had at Overland Expo East 2014

 This guy was determined to help out, if it wasn't for his tow rope snapping in halfs, he probably would still be there, lol. All kidding aside it's always refreshing to see people trying to help out.

Eventually the heavy machinery had to be called in

Even Harlem was enjoying a jeep'ing day!

D-rock, Blue Leader and Old man Willys getting some rest between mud treatments.

Common sights around Jeep vehicle activities, particularly the off-road kind, smiles and repairs, heck they almost go hand in hand!


And just as the sun was setting it was time to wrap it up and head home. This was a great day experience where clubs, vendors, and friends got to hang out, and share our passion for the outdoors, Jeeps and a good time.
