About Me

Hello...

Just an avid outdoor person. i can be found hiking and camping at least 2 weekends a month around Florida and usually try to get out to some mountains a few times a year. i really dig "the stillness", the stars, and being away from people. Am equipped to go into the backcountry for 5 days at a time....i'm not crazy about campgrounds at the state parks, but will go there on occasion with family as they can't do the backcountry.

Will update on hikes, trails, gear and anything else hike/backpack/camping oriented....

My first time out into the backcountry was last August when i flew to Rocky Mountain National Park and went out for 4 days....it was amazing to say the least. Have been going a few times a month locally ever since then. My last trip was a few weeks ago. My girlfreind and i took a canoe 3 hours up the Rock Springs Run near Orlando and camped at a primitive site for 5 days. Was a nice trip....

Different boots will require different amounts of break-in time. Lightweight models may feel perfect right out of the box, while heavier, all-leather models may require weeks to soften up and form to your feet. NOTE:Most hiking boots stretch...
