  1. Travis McGee, John Muir, and me, still in Cedar Key 2

    On second thought jumping over the back fence might not be the best idea. It would put me in the Gulf of Mexico and I'd have to swim to the Canal bridge just to head out the same way John Muir came in. I am giving second thoughts to my route too. Two thoughts keep revolving around in my mind. First, walking north for a southerner is a bit counter intuitive. I'd rather be headed home and looking at the map it's down hill all the way. Secondly, I want to miss the madness I perceive at Springer ...

  2. Travis McGee, John Muir, and me, still in Cedar Key

    The often mentioned quote from John Muir "throw a loaf of bread and a pound of tea in an old sack and hop over the back fence" resonates here in Cedar Key.

  5. Second Prep Hike

    Went back out to the UWF Trails on Thursday and did 12.72 miles in 4 hours. Total prep miles: 22.99. Ditched the Salomans and wore my Brooks Pureflows instead. Much better comfort wise, and my feet didn't hurt afterwards.

    Using my IPhone again, this time I turned on the airplane mode, still ran the Endomondo app and went from 97% charged to 71% charged. Plan to buy and carry a portable charger.
