I have recently received a new Phoenix 20 from HG. I have tested it out in my backyard and noticed a balaclava/beanie is not enough to keep my head warm. I am now working with Adam on making a new...
No, but if you have a TIA while shoveling you're drive way I might be of some assistance. Although, that would be a long distance 911 call so it might cost a little bit extra.

Florida's like 100 temp and 100% humidity

Hello from Florida, w/a 03' GSX-R 1000
Hey I recently found this, hope it might help.
Glad to hear that the Suwanee River SP now allows hammocks
Don't tell em but I still sneak in and stealth camp, last two nights actually.
Don't expect Gold Head to conform yet.
I just got off the phone with a ranger Craig and he said only a few state parks are allowing hammocks, it is in a test phase right now.
I've only used the my sierra sni as a serape a few times. The temps were in the teens (Florida) and I was warm w/o sleeves.
The few times I wore my TQ I kept imagining that I would catch it on a...
How's the finger?
Wow 41 posts, almost there, I'm going to hunt down Shug or maybe Grizz and see if they need help with anything.
I thru hiked the AT NOBO in 2012, at the beginning I used the sierra and a pad with Duffys homemade SPE, then switched in Harpers Ferry to a 50 deg burrow and sent the SPE back home.
I'm glad I...
My first quilt was a Mt. Wash 3 brand new 4 years ago with no issues thus far. Also I have a sierra sni that will kept me warm into the single digits.
Hopefully when I can get my post count up to 50 I will be selling a brand new phoenix 20 which I just received from HG

Give them your itinerary and they should provide a shuttle service just about anywhere in the ONF.

Hey Duffy, unfortunately the FAA has pushed to eliminate the FT from entering the Airpark, for security reasons. Technically, the FT is open and blazed thru goldhead, into camp blanding, and there...
Hey Dubcut, I'm sorry you've not had a recent response.
It is difficult to get decent miles on the FT w/o road walks. However, the longest, uninterpreted sec. of the FT is Ocala National...
I'll catch you guys out there as well.
Funny, I recently emailed Brandon this question for my BB.

Hey shanewalker, I did the JRT in Oct of 09'.

It was an amazing and...
Sounds Great to me!!!!
Just to clear up if anyone is considering attending the FT conference.

He said there will be no problem hanging any...
I just got off the phone with Janice from the Florida Trail Headquarters. I told her that I would be camping with a hammock. Is there any problems with hanging a hammock from trees?
Thanks Islander for the heads up! Thats too bad because I believe Sandra Friend is a hammocker. I don't know if she is still on the board though.
Not to get off topic but I was wondering if anyone will be attending the

Rick have you read mtucker502's trip report? Great pictures!
Hey Dave, I'll also be hiking in from the SR 19 FT trail head.
Sun and Mon. were the only days I could do for the event so unfortunately
I wouldn't be hiking in with ya.
I know there was some talk about backpacking the Florida Trail along the Suwannee River. I've been wanting to Kayak the Upper Suwannee for some time, so I'll be wanting to take a peek at those maps...
I'll bring my FT thru maps to the hang. I have the Suwannee Section, along with a few other sections. There're great for planning!
Nice pics! One of the few places in FL where you can get some steep elevation changes.
The camp host at Holton did recognize that something should be done for us. I spent a few hrs talking with him and he mentioned putting in a few posts in the ground so we can use the campsite. ...
