Day 17 | Florida Trail 0 miles zero day 1/16/18
Had a great day checking out Orlando with a buddy from college, he now has a job for Florida State parks and I’m glad he was able to find something he loves and enjoys for a career, with the state parks in Florida he has 175 options to work in the state and that’s incredible!!
We went to a great place for lunch (zazas) it’s a local Cuban restaurant in Florida, and I ate the entire sandwich except the fries. Just couldn’t do it, hiker hunger is definitely there but not that much yet!
Checked out a few local parks and I finally saw some turtles, if you don’t know turtles are my favorite and I was super excited to them!!
Two more days of no hiking and I’m kinda glad / sad haha, being on trail is fun but family time is too!
Hope everyone on trail is staying warm it’s getting down to 30 degrees here in Florida again. Back home though it’s snowing and 9 degrees, thinking about this weather makes Florida nothing. It’s funny being in Florida wearing shorts and a t-shirt and everyone is staring at me like are you not cold!! Nope this is regular to me being from Chattanooga and Johnson City.
