We have 28 people signed up so far and expect several more in the next two days. The ranger station says the hiking trail is a sandy soil so it is in good shape despite the rain. Hopefully the weather will cooperate, however, I plan to go even if we have a bit of rain on Saturday morning. Little Talbot is beautiful in all weather conditions and the weather changes every 15 minutes in Florida. Please feel free to call me on my cell phone if you have any questions. Thanks, (Mr) Kim Luffberry [masked]- cell)
Sep. 24, Saturday, 9:15 AM: NATURE HIKE ON LITTLE TALBOT ISLAND: Sleep in a bit and then lets enjoy a very pleasant four mile nature walk experiencing a cross-section of ecosystems on Little Talbot Island State Park. This includes maritime hammock, beach dunes, depression marsh, and a stroll on the beautiful white sandy beaches of the island. There should be a good opportunity to view wildlife and locate shells or sharks teeth. Bring water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat, and a bright smile. Cost: Entry fee of $4.00 per vehicle (1 person) or $ 5.00 per vehicle (2 - 8 people) onto the island, plus lunch if you desire.
We will meet at Hardees on Merrill Rd. at 9:15 AM. Take 9A North or Southside Blvd Connector North and exit at Merrill Rd. Proceed East and Hardees is immediately on your left. We will car-pool and caravan approximately 20 miles to Little Talbot Island State Park off of Hecksher Blvd. If you live in north Jax or Ga. then suggest you meet us at the island at approx. 9:50 AM. If there is interest, we will probably have lunch at the nearby Sanddollar Restaurant that has good food and a wonderful water view. Please let me know you plan to come by either a phone call, e-mail, or sign up on our meetup.com site. http://www.floridastateparks.org/littletalbotisland/ Leader (Mr.) Kim L.

SIDETRACKERS is an outdoor activities club for single people in Jacksonville and Northeast Florida. We've been around for over 15 years and offer high-quality experiences for singles who genuinely enjoy outdoor activities and who would like to meet like-minded single activity partners. Club events are mostly oriented towards outdoor activities and may include camping, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, cycling, sightseeing, ziplines, hang gliding, marksmanship, and horseback riding. Activities are varied and provide opportunities for a wide range of interests, abilities, and skill levels. Membership and participation in our singles club also provides opportunities to develop and refine outdoor leadership skills. SIDETRACKERS in Jacksonville is the place for active singles!
Even if you don't live in or around Jacksonville and are looking for high-quality singles activities, you can still participate with us. Use our web site to view our calendar of events and activities, find out how to sign up for trips and events, and even apply to become a member. It's easy, and it's all online at our main web site - http://www.sidetrackers.com. We would love to have you visit or join our club.
ABOUT "MEMBERSHIP" IN OUR GROUP: Meetup membership is free and open to all, however some Meetup members elect to "join" the Sidetrackers club in order to help defray the costs involved in running Sidetrackers. For example, we incur expenses to maintain our web site and we also buy and pay for a supplemental medical insurance policy. Club membership is ridiculously cheap for one year - $15 - and in exchange (and also as a reward) for helping pay for our expenses, club members are invited to a few special "members only" events where the club may pay for some of the food. If you elect not to join the club, you're welcome to participate with us, but please respect and understand this arrangement within our club when you see two or three "members only" events each year. This way of running things has been in place for many years and it has worked very well for everyone.
