No I haven't been a member of The Florida Trail Association and will consider joining the organization
I am in pretty good physically shape. I particiated in the Gate River Run again and improved my time each year (four GRRs - yeah!). I have never hiked with a pack. But I have camped out with the Boy Scouts a few times when my son participated in scouting.
Yes, I'd like to learn more about hiking in Florida especially to learn more about the flora and wildlife.
Yes, I am willing to RSVP to events.
I grew up in Tennessee and often hiked around Cades Cove and to Abrams Falls with my family. And spent quite a bit of time outdoors fishing and visiting parks too. I enjoyed it and would like to get back to enjoying those things again.
The weather was nice and I enjoyed talking with the new people I met and I leaned a great deal about our native plants and trees.
