    I need to consult the wife, but pencil me in. I like the fact that it is a short drive from Winter Haven.

    Is anyone going to bring a bridge (Chrysalis, Jacks, etc.)? I'm really wanting to try one out be fore I spend the $$$.

    T-stain had a bridge last spring. Haven't heard yet if he will make it and not sure just what it was. Maybe he'll join us on this one.

    Sod-buster, not sure about the vehicle, will probably need to check with samsara on that. But if we can meet at the trailhead I can load some or most of your gear on my Sherpa to get you back in to the camp if you can walk a couple of miles to the camp. samsara will probably be along shortly and be able to fill us in on the forest regs.

    Not sure if I will make it as I am hoping to do the St. Marks NWR section of the FT that weekend but I will keep this in mind if that doesn't work out.

    Thanks,

    Sorry, no motorized vehicles but bicycles, horses, and olddogs/sherpas are ok

    If you have a gps and are savvy enough to load external routes onto your gps then I can show you a shorter way in but you will be on your own if you have trouble navigating. Just let me know and we'll see what we can do.
