    My family and I spent the weekend in the Withlacoochee Forest last winter, temp 16 deg F by 4:00 a.m.. There was sleet collecting on our tents and was by far the most interesting trip I have ever had in Florida. My sons and grandsons and I LOVED IT! Anyway that kind of cold is EXTREMELY rare here. Anyone camping in Fla in the winter should be prepared for cold weather. Temperatures can range from the 20's to the low 80's depending on the weather.

    Wow! I've lived in Florida all my life and never remember a 16! Hopefully, that is a cold front with enough umph to make it to South Florida where it was 87 yesterday with a low of 78 ... did I mention 100 percent humidity?

    I'm ready for some "cooler" temps. Maybe 40-50's in evenings I'm camping. For me, Less than 45* is plain cold.
    Warming sunshine during the day makes a big difference on the cold waves too.

    I read Hiking the Florida Trail by Johnny Molloy. The Suwannee is a section I will do in a couple of years. Thanks for sharing.
