    Wow. It doesn't seem like many come to Florida in January except for HangCon. Too bad you didn't stay for that the following week.

    It's nice to see Northerners come down and enjoy the different ecosystems we have down here. Silver Springs is a run I take the vendors to during HangCon. It's a beautiful run. So glad you got to see them monkeys.

    Hidden Pond is my favorite. That's where we hold the No UnderQuilt Hang in July and Summer's Last Gasp Hang in September.

    Glad you got to see more of the FT as well. Did you hike thru the FT North of Hidden Pond near Pat's Island trailhead? If so there is an ancient sinkhole about 15 min from that trailhead. There is a marker in the middle of the FT a couple hundred yards from the TH sending you East to the sinkhole. I love that we can climb down into it.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    Paul you were in some of my old fun places growing up in Florida! I was mostly in the Orlando and Lake County area but taking the canoe, 18 ft. Barrett BTW, to there was always on the list. As a teen, the monkeys were a lot more aggressive than my visit last year. Used to go to Buck Lake on full moon nights and float on a huge, commercial grade, queen size Hebrew National float. You could see right to the bottom and all the fish and gators. I love the Carolina woods but I do wish the waterways were more like my native home. Thank you for the video.
    Hope to see you at Yates, Taz

    Thanks for posting.

    I saw the sign to the sink hole but we didnt go back there. If Id have known you could go down in it wed have definitely checked it out. And I think I consulted some of those No UQ Hang threads to figure out where to park. Since we got there in the dark we hung on the first couple trees we saw which worked. The next morning I walked around I saw some nice sites I figured yall use.
    And Silver Spring was great. Speaking of vendors... the prior time I was there I was going to walk back from Rays Wayside but got a ride from a few folks who finished at the same time - just happened to be Dutch, Adam, Jenny and Fronkey. Not a huge surprise since Hangcon was on but still pretty fun.

    I wish the drive was shorter cause my list of places to go see in Florida after this trips. Sounds pretty great you were so close in Orlando.
    And yea planning on Yates but well see. Also about the time I Ike to take some longer hikes.
