3rd Annual Black Friday Camping Trip

Our 3rd annual camping and trail riding trip is this weekend in Big Cypress National Park. Expect primitive camping and bring everything you need for the weekend, because we will be as far from civilization as possible to escape the retail insanity of the Black Friday weekend. We will have light trail riding in rural Collier County, which is a bit closer to home than the last couple of years.

We will meet on Friday morning (November 25th) at the McDonald’s at Bonita Beach Rd and I75 at 9:30 AM. We will have a brief drivers meeting and be on the road by 10 AM. We should arrive at the Monument Lake Campground on US 41 in Ochopee around 11:15 AM. We have campsites reserved through Sunday, though you can come and go as your schedule requires.

The schedule is pretty open, but we plan on taking rides to Jane’s Scenic Drive and Loop Road…nothing too extreme. This is a relaxing weekend trip. Please RSVP at http://www.caloosajeepers.com/rsvpmaker/3rd-annual-black-friday-camping-trip-2016-11-25/ if you plan on attending.

Summer Ocala Trip – Hard Rock and Wildwood

Saturday June 25, 2016
Sunday June 26, 2016
 

UPDATE:

Getting close folks!!! We will be starting the convoy for this weekends ride at the PILOT gas station just off the Jones loop Rd exit on rt 75. If you need fuel or coffee or McDonalds etc.. please get there earlier than 7am as we will be leaving at 7am promptly Saturday morning and convoying up to the Microtel hotel directly. From there we can determine what park everyone wants to hit first. We will be using CB channel 16 for whole weekend so if you have one tune in 😉

Caloosa Jeepers are once again visiting the Ocala area as a club to ride in the Park at Wildwood and Hard Rock Off Road Parks. This official club event will take place Saturday, June 25th and Sunday, June 26th. The tentative plan is to drive to Ocala on Saturday morning, make a short stop at the hotel to drop off/unload trailers, and continue to the first park. Depending on the timing, we may continue to the second park that evening, or retire to the hotel and hit the second park on Sunday morning. Kids are welcome and camping / hotels are available or near both parks.

We will convoy as a group and we will be leaving at a prearranged time from a central location in SW Florida. Watch the event calendar at caloosajeepers.com/event-calendar for updates.

Club Medical Kit

The club’s trailer is equipped with an comprehensive medical kit by Adventure Medical Kits and is located inside the rear door on the upper left. This kit is the Sportsman Grizzly model and contains supplies to treat the most common injuries, including penetration wounds from bullets or arrows, fish hook removal, splinting fractures, and stopping severe bleeding. Most importantly, it includes a book “Comprehensive Guide to Wilderness & Travel Medicine” By Eric A. Weiss, M.D., the most up-to-date information on wilderness and travel medicine. It includes: “Weiss Advice” improvised techniques; “When to Worry” tips; 97 illustrations; recommended prescription medications; medical supplies for extended expeditions; and information on how to use the components of your Adventure Medical Kit.

Adventure Medical Kits assembles many different kits based on use and number of persons it can support and can be purchased online or at many sporting goods stores. This is just one example of a first aid kit available. A number of other kits are available online or in many retail stores that would suffice. Regardless if you put your own kit together or purchase one already assembled, make sure you know what you have in your kit and how to use it should an emergency arise.

We also carry a snakebite kit, bottled water, and a fire extinguisher in our trailer for emergency use. However, these do you little good unless the trailer is near the scene of an emergency. We highly recommend that all members carry some type of first aid kit and fire extinguisher in their Jeeps at all times.

First Aid Kits

There are many kits out there and many advanced items in them as well as many that are purely marketing ploys. Know how to use what you have and have the proper equipment for what you are trained to do. If you choose to make your own basic kit, here are some essential items to include:

  • Use something clean and that will keep items dry as container/carrier
  • Bottled water
  • Pen / pencil notepad
  • Emergency phone #, poison control, doctor, pharmacy, pertinent health info that may be important ie. allergies…medical conditions
  • Blanket
  • Pillow
  • Flashlight

  • Tweezers
  • Alcohol preps
  • Latex / Non-Latex Gloves
  • 2 in-4 in Gauze pads
  • Gauze rolls
  • Fabric bandaging
  • Adhesive bandaging / assorted sizes
  • Medical tape 1 in and 2-4 in
  • Elastic bandage (Ace)
  • Ice pack / warm packs
