With Shawn and we are prepping our resupplys, stops, and everything we need to get ready before we head out, we have a 12 hour drive ahead of us!! We are driving through the night to get there in the morning!
I’m excited/overwhelmed about starting my thru hike, it’s going to be an epic adventure full of sunrises and sunsets, and everything in between.
The drive to Miami wasnt too bad we stopped twice the whole way and we made it within the 12 hour time we wanted to make. We got on the trail about 11 o clock or so and took our southern terminus pictures and started walking!
Day 4 | Florida Trail 0 miles (zero) 1/3/18
Up at 7 am with my body screaming don’t move!
We all decidied that we should take a zero to relax our feet, I’ve got blisters on the bottoms of my feet and they sting every time I step down.
Glad to be zeroing so I can recover my feet. I’m also pretty sure the lone peak 3.5 are a half size small, my toes are touching up in the toe box and I’m so mad about it, pretty swollen too from the swamps haha this sucks, i’m gonna have to get new ones already. I’ve never had this problem with my feet and it hurts! Just gotta get new shoes and I’ll be better.
Today is rainy and foggy with 30 degrees for the night. The sunshine state has proven us wrong. I’m hoping for beautiful weather tomorrow so please go away cold front!!
It’s not going away we have a ice storm on the way, it hit northern Florida already and did a bunch of damage woot woot! Wow ice storms in Florida who knew!
