Florida Trail Map

Through Crestview

Got up with the sun and hiked out to a long day of roadwalking. Actually
the day was bookended with short trail segments.
After leaving the trail in the morning I hit a small park on the outskirts
of town and washed up as best I could in the sink of the rest room. From
there I headed into town and grabbed some breakfast.
After that I walked through town and near were I was exiting it I hit the
laundry mat. Last time I washed my clothes was in St Marks and tthat was a
while ago so they needed it very badly. It felt so great to have clean
clothes again. After leaving the laundry mat it was a long roadwalk to a
small town called Holt. Most of the walk was okay as there was a
trail/road that followed the power line easement but in some sections there
wasn't especially the last couple miles into Holt. Got in around 3 PM and
hit the local store for a drink and a late lunch. Then headed right back
out to a different road to hike a few more miles until I got off trail just
a half mile or so before the camping area I am at.
I hiked 23 miles today but it seems longer to me. Maybe I'm just still
tired from yesterday. Tomorrow is almost all trail so that should be
nice. I'm a little over 60 miles to the finish of the trail so it should
happen in two or three days depending on how much I push things in the next
two days. Actually how I push things on the day after tomorrow.
The camp ground is pretty quiet. Currently I'm the only one here but there
is a car with a boat trailer here so I suspect they will be coming back in
sometime tonight.
Not too much else to report as not too much happened today and a doubt
anyone wants a detailed accout of Florida Route 90 where I spent most of my

aligator count = 46
