We have moved to a new host, and in the process migrated the entire site to a new platform. If you were registered on our old site, you’ll have to re-register here. Sorry about this, I know it’s a real pain in the rear, and I really tried to avoid it but couldn’t.
The gallery is getting migrated but may take a few days as it’s over 1000 pics!
We hope you’ll like the new format; be patient with us, as I’m sure the overall look and feel will change a few times as we get settled in.
We decide to get back into the swing of things with a short hike this weekend. Upon arriving at Little Manatee River SP we were told that the trails had been closed due to a wild dog issue. The closest park we could think of was Oscar Scherer SP. We had never been there, but I knew that they had several trails, and we figured it was worth a shot.
It turned out that the “trails” were really sand roads through scrub land, and it appeared that whoever created the system made every effort to avoid trees, and anything of remote interest, although the little lake, and two crossings of the stream were nice. Needless to say it was a hot couple of hours, without much to see. It did give me a chance to take my GPS project for it’s first run, and one that I was quite happy with overall.
Steph posted pics in the gallery, and there’s a temporary Google Map with the GPS Track here. Once I get a little time I plan on making a permanent section of the site for hikes that we do, now that we will have more data along the trip.
