    Cool VIDEO: Slackers, We'll Meet Again

    A short little montage from a hike on the Florida Trails most northern section .

    " Slacker " is a Walker Hound found lost in the wilderness .. he hiked with us as fed him and nursed him .. his trail name came from the group I was hiking with .. the SLACKer's .. meaning Simply, Laidback, Adventurers, Campers, and Kayakers.

    We had lows of 33*F and 34*F followed with a mid 40's. 4 used tents and HF ZukiGuy and I hammocks ..of course ..

    Slacker hiked with us for the most part .. he'd wonder off then find us at camp .. he was quite decimated when he found us .. I had antibiotics which I gave him .. we cleaned his wounds and feed him .. a few miles from the end he headed into the woods .. not to be seen again .. it's sad on one hand ..but then guess he's living the slacker life ..
