    I love the outdoors especially camping and hiking. I mostly hike and camp in Florida. My outdoors partner is my 8 year old son. He has done some 3 mile hikes so far and really enjoys camping. I'm not a hardcore bushcrafter myself, but I do use some of the skills. I would like to broaden my skill set. I mainly use military surplus gear for hiking. I have started to get into nature photography. I plan on going out of state for some camping and hiking trips in the near future.

    Welcome from the central Florida area. I live not far from the FL trail as it makes its way through the Ocala National Forest and hike the area often. Feel free to PM me if you want to hike the trail on a weekend sometime.
