For more than a decade!
Pro - More than 600 miles of day hiking per year and, this year, another 600+ of backpacking, including 525 miles of the Appalachian Trail.
Leisurely smell-the-roses pace, up to 9 miles for most day hikes but I do more when I need to. I camp as well, will be backpacking through your portion of the FT this year if plans work out, and have started bicycling again. Might consider paddling, too.
Hi, I'm Sandra Friend, avid hiker and backpacker, author of a whole bunch of books on Florida hiking, an FTA activity leader in Central Florida, and the gal behind FloridaHikes.com. Busy working on a new book on the Florida Trail!
