Meet members of the group in a relaxed atmosphere. Mingle with your hiking pals. Make new friends. Bring an appetite as we will serve homemade chili, hot drinks, and cider. Go shopping. New members are encouraged to attend.
Note: Bring your own water bottle. Or buy one on sale. We will not have plastic bottles of water. We are doing this to cut down on single-use plastics.

Title: Walking on Sunshine. A Thru Hike of the 1,100 Mile Florida Trail
Description: The southernmost of the National Scenic Trails in America, the Florida Trail is unlike any other. Where else can you see an alligator, bear, and panther all in one day? Take an 1,100 mile journey from the Everglades to Pensacola through the interior of Florida. The Florida Trail ranges from remote and wild knee-deep swamps to bike paths through busy suburban Orlando to the white, sandy beaches of the Panhandle. See parts of Florida that most people never get to see. Learn how Andy endured sun, heat, rain, wind, cold, floods, hurricane damage, alligators and venomous snakes to complete this 2.5-month hike.
Presenter: Andy Niekamp
