Day 25 | Florida Trail 17 miles 1/24/18
What a day!!
The day was good till 12pm I had 17 miles done and ready for more. But the last bridge coming out off of the trail did not like me. Setup my camera for a walking video, I turn to make sure it’s focused and it’s in the water. Im flipping out dropping my pack and jumped in the water to save it, not thinking as I jump in, my chest piece is wide open and all my gear comes flying out right in the water as well. Day ruined lol, so I get all the stuff out of the water and just keep walking.
I found a pizza place in the Oviedo shopping center and order a large pizza and start calling everyone I can to get out of town. I was mind blown about dropping all my stuff. Mad the whole time, I was ready to quit, ready to just go home.
With time I was able to relax and get my self calmed down and finally get back with my dad and his family to start ordering and getting stuff back together. It could have been much worse, such as a broken leg or arm so I’m thankful it was just a phone and not my well-being.
I now have a new phone but no camera :(. Will be back on trail when I get to Billy Goat Day, see everyone there!!
