Hey, wife and I are just getting into hanging and have decided to make our annual run to FL this Feb a hang. We usually stay in the St Pete's area and just love it there, Indian Rocks beach to Treasure Island and everything in between have been awsome to us. This will be our first hang although I'm planning on testing out the gear in the garage so we are both comfortable with everything. I'm really looking forward to some quilts just so I can hang in the garage a few nights in fact.
We're driving down from Ontario in Feb for a couple of weeks, I suspect we'll stay indoors the first night on account of the wife not having a fondness for the cold and me not wanting to have her first hang in the snow. Although this will depend on how far south we get day 1, we typically make a run for it and get to St Pete's in around 20-21 hrs but as we are going down sans the kidletts it will depend on the mood at the time, coast down or giv'er...
We are wondering where some of the recommended spots to hang are across FL? What we know for sure is that we are going to hit the keys this time out, everything else is open. We'd also like to get some hiking in, nothing crazy long or difficult. I'd be open to hiking in, hanging over night and hiking back out. I just found a link to floridastateparks but haven't had a chance to go through it too much as of yet.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
