Can y'all think about planning a ruck near Escambia County during the weekend of 26-27 SEP?  I'll be in Pensacola and I'd love to share some misery with y'all.  I know the panhandle might be a long shot, but beers would be on me for the entire crew, if it happens.

No Key West chapters to allow a NOVA Battle Buddy to join in while I'm here for a week?

@BOOST

There’s a little node forming in Pensacola right now. You could probably convince @DamonSriv to get one rolling

You’d end up rucking into the ocean

One more for the Tampa Bay area here. Hopefully I'll see y'all on the 22nd. Also, there are a few places a little north of Tampa that could work well - Flatwoods Park has a roughly 7-mile paved loop with several additional unpaved trails running throughout. Hillsborough River State Park also has a lot of more natural hiking opportunities ranging from 1-6 miles and with varying levels of difficulty.

There was a decent stretch of sea wall that I was able to run six miles on.  Saw plenty of "Come and Take It" stickers on trucks, so there have got to be some like minded people down there.

We are working on a Panhandle group.  As time gets closer, I think we can arrange a hike on that day.  I Myself will likely be doing my day job in Alaska when it happens, but I hope by then we have a  crew established that can handle the logistics.

Speaking of hikes for the panhandle, im posting one up here in a few for 2 weeks from now.

North Broward here, and I would be down for events in the area. This is my busy season so my schedule is pretty tight, only really off Sunday.

I'm also a poor and have a barely working death trap for transportation, long trips would be an issue until I can give my truck some love.

@leftytheking
I'm in the Ocala area most weekends, but work in Tampa during the week.
I could conceivably make Jax, Orlando or Tampa events.
Thanks, Inimicalone

I am very glad to see Arfcommers taking charge in their AO and making events happen. If you hold an event, people will come!

It might only be 4 people, might be a dozen, but keep the momentum going and attendance WILL grow.

In the Tampa Bay area, we are considering making this a standing monthly event and rotating it back and forth between Pinellas County (Gulf side of the bay with Clearwater and St Pete) and the Tampa side, and picking new hiking locations each time.  That way, no side of this 4 million-people area is left out, and it is convenient for people from Gainesville, Orlando, even Jacksonville to join us at Tampa-side events.

We are seeing a lot of interest in Arfcommers from across the state attending each others events.  Consider starting your events at 0900 or 0930  so out-of-towners are more likely to make a 2-hour trip to join you.  Camaraderie and networking can and should be more than just in your local AO.  Our Largo hike this pst weekend had folks from hours away, including Pasco County, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, and Miami.  Now those guys are starting their own events in their AO.  Good stuff!

I went out today and scouted the Yearling Trail in the Ocala Forest.  I found a route that is 6.1 miles long, beautiful scenery, mostly straw covered hard pack trail, really nice.  This is a big loop, so the idea for this one would be for one of our 6 mile qualifiers for people who have already completed the first steps.

I am going to post a thread with a detailed OPORD and trail conditions report later this afternoon,  but I'm looking at setting this one in Mid-April, either the 11th or the 18th depending on what works best for people.  The 11th is Easter weekend, those with kids might have plans so give me input in that thread as to which weekend will work best.

The Yearling Trail is around 2 hours from Orlando, Tampa, and Jacksonville city centers.  Florida Hikes Link

Date Set for the 18th barring any problems.

The next hike for the Miami chapter of FLBB: FLBB / APC Hike - Markham Park, Broward County - 22 Mar 2020 @ 0900

I'm holding this at Markham to give better access for Broward and Palm Beach, as well as to give our Port Charlotte brethren a shot at it.
