how do you dirt jump in FL???

i just moved to ocala, florida from alaska. and up in alaska the dirt was perfect for making jumps. and down here in florida the dirt is just sand. is there any one who lives in florida who knows where or how to jump some dirt.

that is what i use(carpets) around turns were i jump becuse the dirt tends to stay muddy, and it isnt really hard-pack anyway.

You have to sneak into a tennis court factory at night...
Actually, that clay type stuff they use on tennis courts is what they use here on our track. Surely you can find some clay or proper soil to build with. If not, move.
