Miami hates segways. Good for them.

Miami:before I start

Flew in from Philly last night and used today to get fuel and food. The weather here is a total 180 from what I left in jersey. From -15F wind chills to shorts and a t-shirt. I couldn't be happier!

So about finding isopro in miami. Finding serious backpacking equipment in miami is nearly impossible. All the outdoors activities in southern Florida center around the water, obviously, as they have it in spades. There are very few hiking trails. You won't find an rei or anything resembling it. I did find Rabbit Mountain, an outfitter with 8oz isopro canisters and even Florida Trail guidebooks and some real backpacking (not car-camping-walmart) gear.

The trailhead at the southern terminus is quite a ways outside of miami. The FTA suggests taking a taxi (pricey). My plan is to take public transportation as far towards it as possible (3 different buses over 2 hours). Then try my luck with a sign on the road out of town to the trailhead. I'll give it a couple of hours and then resort to a taxi if necessary.
