Hello all, My name is Andrew. I'm originally from Pennsylvania but moved to Florida back in 2003. After the last hurricane that devastated our town my family and I decided to move the the area we evacuated to (we haven't even gone back to check on our house yet.). Seeing as I have spent the last 14 years in FL and only wandered the FL wilderness I have no clue of what gear to even carry on a day hike up here in North Carolina. If anyone could help me out in figuring what gear to carry I would greatly appreciate it!
