    Honda Only Ride, Arcadia Florida August 31.

    I'm organizing a Peace River Ride out of Arcadia August 31, estimated 9am launch out of the 760 ramp off of US 17.
    100 ish miles planned, perhaps a little more.
    I have 6 ski's heading up right now, would like to get 2 more.
    we'll head north towards the brownsville ramp / twisties for 40ish miles each way and if time/fuel allows south 15-20 miles towards the Navigator and return.
    Honda PWC's only.
    The problem with normal is that it just keeps getting worse...

    I would rather sit than quit...

    Re: Honda Only Ride, Arcadia Florida August 31.

    For those of us not familiar with the area, who are considering joining you on this ride, are you heading as far north as Zolfo Springs, Wauchula, Bowling Green, Ft Meade or Bartow? I've actually travelled as far as 80 miles before on the ski, but not 100 or more. Are you thinking we will need some extra fuel with us? I've got an 05 F12-X. Where is the Navigator? Would we be going as far south as Port Charlotte? Again, I've never travelled this area before, so I'm very interested in joining you guys. It would be me and a buddy (2 total skis) both Honda's. Thank you. John

    Re: Honda Only Ride, Arcadia Florida August 31.

    hey John, the plan is to run about 100 ish miles round trip, maximum, ie: 1 tank of fuel, I know we're all capable of a little more distance if we're not hammering the throttle, but i'd rather save a little bit for whatever... and when we get back to the ramp take a break and maybe throw 5 gallons in and head south for a spell, towards port charlotte.

    we'll start by heading from Arcadia (the ramp is about 1 mile east on CR 760 from this address.
    1401 E Oak St, Arcadia, FL 34266

    we'll be heading towards Zolfo (the brownville park ramp)
    1885 NE Brownville St, Arcadia, FL 34266

    which is about 12 miles, generally this is about the furthest i've gone when leaving from port charlotte (where I normally launch) but I have launched from Brownville park and headed north to the twisties from there in the past (only twice)

    after the brownville Park ramp there is a bit of a straight(ish) stretch for 10ish miles then we should hit the good twisties if the water levels are not too high (and not too low) , if you've been up that way before you know what i'm talking about.

    i'm hoping to get around 30 miles north of Zolfo at the most before we make the turn back, so it should be about 80-85 miles round trip on the north run.

    feel free to post up suggestions or comments, this is a work in progress.
