Florida trail conditioning hikes
I have been out and about on the Florida trail hiking with brother paul ( chessman).
We walked thru the Florida everglades for 5 days and got quite wet from swamp.
Then we walked a few days in Ocala national forest near Orlando. And then a week in
NW Florida near Crestview staying at the wonderful trail angels Bob and Nancy. They made us feel most welcomed
and cooked up the best meals a hiker would die for.
Their man cave was very accommodating . Thank you Bob and nancy . I made plans to thru-hike the pct again in 2017 starting 3/15 at campo.
I will not have a r/v support driver this year like I did in 2016. Both my wife linda and brother paul are busy with other things .
My hike strategy will change
to mailed resupply boxes and buy as I go. And a
heavier carry of food. My gear will not change much other than a extra 3 Oz
Base layer top and 5 Oz base layer bottoms and a 4 oz sleeping bag liner for the earlier start date. These
Three items will be dumped at Acton Koa after the first month and the warmer weather begins. I will still have my rv
In California stored at the Koa there for 2 months and then move it north to Lone pine to storage while I walk
Through the sierras. Hopefully this rv movement will not be a troublesome bother.
What Can I Do ?
