First off, hello. This is my first post. Like my user name implies I mostly have camped and hiked with a 8x10 tarp. While searching info about the legality of stringing up my tarp with some paracord since moving to Florida I have seen lots of older and recent post about rules and regs of a similar nature regarding hammocks and hammocks only. Now after all the reading I seems it is ok to hang a hammock most places now in Florida, and I'm thinking hard on a hammock purchase. However, I am still uncertain how those regulations relate to simply suspending a tarp from a ridgeline. Any input would be appreciated.
Also, being new to south Florida. Is there any place around to hike in 4 miles set up camp any place that looks good and hike out the next day?? Or do I mostly have to drive north a few hours. I've seen Big Cypress has a big back country but I'm not into wading..not sure how much dry hiking is there or how to find it.
Thanks for helping the newby.
