What: 26.7 mile one day hike
Where: Citrus Tract of Withlacoochee State Forest.
When: 6:00 am start. Meeting at 5:45 am
There is 11 hours of daylight. Sunrise 7:15 am, Sunset 6:13 pm
We have openings for 8 additional hikers. The hike will start and end at the Tillis Hill Campground. If you want to camp Friday and/or Saturday you can call[masked]-4238. Sites are $20 unless 65 years old. I am in site 28. Informed them others might want to camp and so there are sites also available nearby at 26,27,29,30,31
I will be putting water out about every 6 miles so you only have to carry enough water to last you 6 miles. If you want to put other supplies in my car to get at mile 18, maybe extra food, snack, jacket, let me know. You will need to bring food to sustain you for the long day.
We stay fairly close together. This is a group event, NOT an individual event. We wait at every road crossing to be sure everyone is okay. If this does not fit your style, please do not sign up.
There will be a bailout at 18 miles and Alex Garcia is planning on hiking that distance and then driving back to the campground; he will take anyone else that will be stopping there.
One must voluntarily bail out there if you do not arrive at 18 miles in 7 hours. We will stay pretty close together and so do not want to keep others from hitting their pace if one is too slow.
Any questions, let me know
