I'm putting together this thread so we can get an organized plan going for this evenot. I've gotten a good amount of people in the other thread that have expressed interest in attending so I was we could use this thread to concentrate ideas, get a headcount, answer questions, etc.

It's going to be held in Cary State Forest 7465 Pavilion Rd, Bryceville, FL 32009 on February 16, 2020 at 9AM.

I figure we can all do the 3 mile provisional hike and afterwards we can do an additional 3 miles for anyone who would like to stay on.
STANDARDS

There’s a loop that’s a little less than 2 miles that we can use for the provisional rate and lots of trails throughout that we can use to complete the remaining miles for the 6 mile hike. The trails range from hard packed dirt road to medium dirt to soft sand in a couple spots.

Remember, we can't legally carry long guns so we need to add 10 pounds of dry weight to our packs. I'll bring a scale so we can double check our weights before heading off. If you just want to come out and enjoy time outdoors with like minded people without carrying a pack or hiking distances according to standards you are welcome and encouraged to attend anyway.

Update: We’ll be hiking in the Cary tract. From highway 301 look for Pavillion Road which will have a sign for the main entrace to the park. Follow Pavilion into the park and eventually you’ll come to some camping spots and a parking area and a kiosk that has a giant map of the park and a drop box where you pay the $2 entrance fee. This is where we’ll meet up.

Taking the names from the other thread, here's who I believe to be going.
DominicO
BoostKING
mgwantob
BrowardMason
RINO_Hunter
Spartacus2002
Spartacus2002 Jr

If you plan on going and want to be added to the list or can't make it and want to be taken off comment in this thread or message me.

If they allow camping there, I might head up the night before, camp, then join you.

Ok, let me know. I’m bringing a non member but if it’s just the two of us and @boostKING we may have to reschedule because we’d be below the 2 non related witness requirement.

Looks like I'll be bass fishing unfortunately. Got reports they are starting to bed in my favorite spots and the weather/tide is favorable

Current weather update shows a high of 73 for the day and a chance if rain at 40% starting around noon. Winds at 5 to 10mph in the morning. Expect high humidity.

Fishing is the only thing I like and I’ll still be there.

No problem. Feel better soon. I wish I could make yours on the 22nd but I've got a Spartan Race the next day here in Jacksonville. I'll give you a heads up for the next one.

I just saw this tonight. This is my failure and I apologize. I will check the hometown section more often if I don't make it out tomorrow.

Sorry you missed it. I promise I will contact you directly next time we have one scheduled.
Link Posted: 2/17/2020 8:37:35 PM EST
4 of us met up for this hike. What a great group of people! I had a blast meeting up with like minded people and being part of something. If you are on the fence about going to one of these you need to just go, trust me. If it’s not with us Northeast Florida guys then meet up with your local group.

I’ve got a vague idea of doing another hike in March on the Baldwin Rail Trail. I will create another thread when this idea is more concrete. I’ll see you there.
Link Posted: 2/17/2020 8:42:12 PM EST
Excellent, we look forward to making the next one up your way.

I'll be there for the second one. I had the flu/bronchitis when you did the first one, but I look forward to meeting you all when the next one is scheduled. I drove out to Largo today and got my provisional as well as an additional 3 miles towards the next rating, everyone was awesome. I am glad Floridians are coming together for this.

I'll be there for the next one (schedule willing). Either pick a location where people can camp the night before, or pick a 0930 start time so we can drive from 3 hours away with relative ease.
