    Finally some cooler weather in Florida

    Well I'm writing this from my new Switchback on my android, close enough to the house so I'm picking up WiFi (life is good). Finally the heat has broke in N Florida. Havent had the opportunity to really try the switchback out bc it doesn't seem to drop under 90 degrees till 10ish every night. Let me say, that was one awesome nap. This thing is a work of art and is insanely comfortable. The low tonight is 69 so I do believe I'll crash out here tonight. Now if only I had a tv out here to watch the Jags game. DUVAL!!!!

    Cooler weather!?
    wait... what weather..? where..?!
    .
    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    But a brief reprieve is always nice isn't it?

    Thanks ShadowAlpha!

    So I wasn't sure if I should put my pad underneath me so I set it next to me incase I needed it. Sure enough did but was too lazy to get out of my hammock and slide it in between my layers. Temp at 5:30am was 66. Needless to say I was a bit chilly with just a bed sheet. Finally got up around 6:30. Apparently it was pretty humid all night but I didn't notice at all. Can't wait for the Florida Hang!!!
