    Hello, I'm in Baldwin County. I've been exploring the Blackwater River State Forest of late. Nice area.

    It's about a 10 hour drive from you. The western far tip of the panhandle.

    Me too. Well, I'm on the east side of the bayou in East Pensacola Heights, but close enough. Grab a beer some time? Maybe hit the 12 ave speak easy? Too cool.

    I'm in south Santa Rosa county. I spend most of my woods time in Blackwater, but know a few spots closer to me on Eglin AFB reservation. Below is a link to getting a reservation pass, if anyone is interested. The Florida Trail goes thru parts of the reservation, there are some neat spots out there for sure.

    I like the Cantonment area, I've had some good times fishing the Escambia River and camping in the Escambia WMA. My oldest sister lived in Cantonment for years til she moved in with my Mom to take care of her. I go to the shooting range up there pretty often, Escambia River Gun Club. Happy for you getting a piece of land up there. It's great having a place of your own to get away. I have a little spot on a small spring fed lake in East Milton (Nichols Lake) but its getting built up around there now and turning into a neighborhood. Was surrounded by timberland and they sold to builders, and so it goes...

    I'm in Pace (outside Pensacola). We do some bushcrafting up by the fisheries at Blackwater. I have three buddies that join me if anyone is ever interested in meeting up.

    I'm from Navarre, but currently in Tuscaloosa for school. Hey, what do y'all think about organizing a meetup this summer? I won't be back home until May, but I'll be itching to get out in the woods as soon as I leave my precious Alabama woodlands.

    Looks like a few more locals! Fantastic. We just did the red rock trail last weekend. Maybe before it gets too hot we could get something together.

    That would be great. I would need enough notice to see if I would be off from work.

    Any place along the trail to camp? It'd be really cool to do an overnighter with y'all!

    Anyone interested in a meetup soon? Maybe an overnighter somewhere along Blackwater? I don't know of any great places, but if anyone does know of a good spot, I think it would be a blast.

    I'm in Okaloosa County over by Rocky Bayou State Park. I try to go out once a month, usually solo since I can't seem to find others interested in getting out in the woods. Ping me, if you want to meet up.

    I can't meet up this weekend...I have a race in central Florida on Saturday. The other weekends I should be free for a meetup, if anyone is up for it. Right now it's about as hot and humid as it gets, so an overnight might suck, but I'd be up for anything just let me know. Maybe an early morning or late evening meetup somewhere just to see who's in the area...whatever. Thoughts?

    Anybody around for an impromptu meetup on Aug 27th or 28th? Probably too hot for an overnighter but a morning or evening meet and greet would be cool. Maybe a burger burn at Rocky Bayou State Park. Bring some cool stuff to show off or trade, someone can teach me how to start a fire with a hand drill :) I'm up for anything. If there's a more convenient location, I'd be cool with that too.
