    I was waiting for Floridarider to start this thread. But here goes. Mid summer no-underquilt hang. You are on your own for meals unless planned ahead. Water can be filtered from Hidden Pond for drinking. Free Overnight parking is available at Pat's island TH. 3.6mile hike in.

    I haven't heard from FLRider in a while either.

    Don't forget to expect a wet trip in. Seems like it always rains on the way in, but, I love it.

    I will probably be there from the 18th. Friday 18th- Sunday 20th.

    For anyone that wants to attend, it's a tight corridor from Pat's Island South to Hidden pond on most of the trail. You won't be able to bring a Florida Sherpa.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    I hope all is well with rider.

    I agree about the rain. I have been out to hidden pond 5 times. Always in the rain. The last time I was out to hidden pond was with scout troop 707 Philmont expedition crew 620. It started raining just before we got to camp. Then stopped a couple hours before we loaded up to leave. What a great trip.

    Mark me down as tentative. It is supposed to get crazy at work this July so I might be working. It would be nice to get out there again. I just hope the chiggers don't find me as tasty as last time!

    That sounds great. I asked my wife if she would go as well and I got a "maybe, we'll see". That probably means no for her.

There is a fee at Juniper Springs, but, starting at the entrance to the springs, Go North(left side of the entrance road) on the FT for about 5 miles.}
