Florida Trail Map

In Okeechobee

Very short and simple day. As planned I did a short morning walk into
town. I grabbed a quick breakfast at Dunkin Donuts as they were the first
breakfast place I came too. I then found a laundry
mat and got my clothes washed. What a difference clean clothes make. Felt
a world better. Next I found a motel but it was a little early to check in
so I arranged to leave my pack here and headed to the Walmart up the road
to get food for the next section and a few other things I needed - like
fuel for my stove and some duct tape and bug spray (they haven't been a big
problem yet but they have been showing up at nightfall).

After a leasurely shopping excurtion I grabbed some lunch at the all you
can eat buffett at Pizza Hut. The salad bar and pizza trays took a good
hit. Then I went back to the motel room and repackaged all my food, fixed
up a few things with my gear, and took a shower. WIth both clean clothes
and a clean body I felt like a new person.

The rest of the day was basically laying around and resting while going
through a few maps for the coming sections, but mainly resting.

About 3 miles hiked today. Will head back out on the trail tomorrow.
