The time is rapidly approaching for me to head north again to resume my AT hike. The date’s been set for the week of Memorial Day and the plans are underway.
This weekend my buddies for the May trip are heading down to do some hiking through the Ocala Natl Forest. I’ve already done most of the section they’re covering but I’m heading down Saturday to meet them at Hopkins Prairie. I’m looking forward to putting the hammock up again. It’ll be the first time since the January hang at Buck Lake.
On Sunday we’ll hike from Hopkins Prairie to Salt Springs. It’ll be a short dayhike for me coming in right at 10 miles but it should be good to get the legs working again. I’m not sure what to expect with this section. I hope it’s less sugar sand and more firm trail. Either way I’m looking forward to it.
