If you do hike in from the 19 trail head take the second blue blaze to the camping area. The blue blaze around the south/east side has not been used much and is over grown in some areas. In other words you want to take the FT up the west side of the lake and enter on the blue blaze from the north.

    Thanks Moytoy, so parking isn't an issue at the campground then.

    Thanks for the heads up. Is the plenty of parking at the 19 trail head?
    C-ya Saturday afternoon sometime.

    Parking at the Hwy 19 trail head could become a problem if more than 7-8 campers are hiking in. I park there a lot but I've never really counted the parking slots. More than eight cars will make a crowd. I do my hiking in that area during the week and I've never seen more than 2 or 3 cars there at a time. I'm not sure how the rangers feel about parking in the grass at the trail head.

    Parking at Buck lake should not be a problem though. If hiking is your thing then you could take the blue blaze to the FT and go north or south on it.

    Awesome time with awesome people

    Folks I am having trouble finding words to describe the happiness my family and I are feeling after spending time at the Florida hang. Such a great welcoming and friendly group of people. I have never felt more at home with a group of relative "strangers" in my life.

    In my karate travels I am thrust into these situations all the time. I manage one of the top sport karate teams in the world and we frequently have groups around us. But I have yet to get the feeling like I did today.

    I'm not sure what I honestly expected but my wife, daughter and I really enjoyed ourselves. I got a lot of ideas looking at everyone's rigs. I really liked the "circle of stoves".

    I look forward to the next event where hopefully we can stay.

    Thank You All For An Awesome Event!

    Many of you are still at Buck Lake as I write this but I couldn't wait to say thank you! Typically my outdoor activities are solitary events because few people that I know are into the things that I do. I must say that I almost didn't go because I am really not into highly controlled organized events (like I THOUGHT this might be ). I was warmly greeted by Islander and some of the others who arrived before me, thank you for this. It became evident right away that the agenda was somewhat loosely organized with no pressure to participate in all that was going on ( another big plus from my point of view). Everyone was very friendly and there was a strong sense of fellowship.
    There is no way I can remember the names of all those I met let alone the screen names. So If I miss your name or get it wrong please forgive me and know I haven't forgotten your faces or the parts you played.

    Thanks to Ed Hess awesome seafood dinner bro you hustled big time putting that together you're a one man army!

    Thanks to...Terry and family for the fantastic gumbo awesome job!!!

    Thanks to Islander for being a terrific host and for taking care of so many details. The patches are AWESOME! Way to go man you made everyone feel right at home!

    This thank you goes out to the man who arranged (and paid for I'm told) for the huge pile of firewood. I know we had several very pleasant conversations bud but my brain cannot bring your name up to save my life ( was that Sunny-Trike?) Thanks to you for getting the firewood! You saved all of us a TON of time and work!

    Thanks to all the others who cooked and did all of the other things that went into making this special. There was a lot done that was outside of my own narrow perspective.

    LDCakes, it is evident that you have a lot of experience in the outdoors and your bubbly personality set a great atmosphere for the gatherings around the fire. Great job on your DIY stove btw!

    Awesome job to the folks who did the beef stew! I did not get to sample all of the things that everyone cooked but my goodness I had no idea this event would be like this. Turns out I brought way too much food and other things to this event.

    Flackfizer, Damifino, Edhess, Sunny's_Trike, and Islander, only you guys really know all of those who played all of the different parts in this event. Thanks to all of you for everything and again I know I missed a few but blame my over middle age memory and not my lack of appreciation.

    I hope to get to know some of you guys a little better as individuals and would like to spend some time doing smaller get together's in more primitive venues. There is much we can learn from each other!

    FANTASTIC EVENT! THANKS AGAIN!

    Sincerely, Scott Hadley aka Woodmanfla

    Talking

    Ditto on everything Woodmanfla said! Also want to thank LDCakes for the great cooking, especially the peach cobbler, peach cake, chocolate cherry surprise, and all the other tasty dishes she came up with in her dutch ovens! Not only did I learn alot, I gained 5 pounds, which is impressive with the amount of hiking I did!

    Thanks again Islander for putting this event together. Hope to see everyone again next event!
