I'm in town and have found a place in Plantation for now, although the household goods dont arrive until friday. MUCH different than Utah for sure. The Jeep arrives in the morning so I'll be glad to get rid of the rental car. I'm going to check out a few of the local club meetings, so hopefully I'll meet some of you. Hope to get out soon and see some of this unique country. It's not always about the challenging trails for me...I also like the sight-seeing parts and this place is unlike anywhere I've ever been! Looking forward to something new.

:drive: to the area. I've never been to Moab but seen lots of pics and videos. Definately a bit different. There's plenty of good people on the forum that can help you out w/ wheeling spots or any other info.

Bienvenido without the S. Non plural.

I know your trying hard and getting good, just trying to make you fit in so no one will notice. :ya:

Check out the Cecil Web Trail ride on the Lets go Wheeling MoabJeeper, good to have you around here. :bounce:

I'm trying to make this one myself and will stay out on the perimeter of the water if any. :good2:

Whelp, I give you a big Welcome and I am jealous of where you just moved from...

Some things you might enjoy being a n00b to SoFl

1) On a pretty day, put the top down and doors off and go for a ride down Loop Rd (its way out off 8th Street in South West Miami) it will give you a taste for the the sights.. bring your camera cause you will see plenty of 'Gator
2) For a sight seeing spectacle that will put your head on a swivel.. go for a night ride down Ocean Dr. in South Beach on a Friday or Saturday night... Jenna and I love to do this.
3) Drive down to Key West in the Jeep.. I love that ride.
4) Install a Snorkel
5) Go on a organized ride out to Bear Island in the Everglades or better yet a ride in J.W. Corbett (make sure you have done #4 first)
6) Buy a tow rig and trailer
7) Join me anytime to Ocala, River Rock, or all the way back out in Moab for EJS (Do number 6 first) because you will get enough of number 5 pretty quickly

Zombie thread...

Was just purusing some old stuff here on JeepTalk... havent been here in years.. but I thought this thread was funny because I ended up moving to Utah.

Funny how the universe works.

Hope everyone here on JT is doing well!
