Big Cypress Day Hike Sunday

Posted at — Sep 22, 2016

I’ve mentioned it so I’ll say it again. Sunday I’m going on a day hike in the Florida Everglades. Initially I was going super-ultralight but then it occurred to me, and later confirmed, that I should take a hammock. Given that the ground should be knee deep or higher and any high ground should be saturated given the amount of rain. While the pack is still considered ultralight it’s not as light as it was yesterday.

Everything in the 3’s and C’s is covered. So I’m feeling safe and ready. I also practiced setting up my hammock and it’s ok but not perfect but that might be my bass.
