Intro to hiking with my Grandson!



I'm currently trying to work out a trip to introduce, my 13 year old grandson into Hiking / Backpacking. During the upcoming Spring Break I need to plan an exciting trip with just the right mix of distance, with out stressing an inexperienced young man.

It will be on the FLTrail likely 2 days & 2 night at first.

to Sunday, February 5, 2017, 2:00 PM

Gores Landing

13800 NE 98 St., Ft. McCoy, FL

Saturday morning: we will leave camp EARLY (9 am)to the Ocklawaha River. It's nearly a ten mile trip, with light current on a twisty, narrow river with excellent scenery. This requires us to do a shuttle from the put-in at Ray's Wayside Park to the take-out at Gores Landing.

We'll be primitive camping at Gores Landing Park. They have restrooms and non potable water. No reservations need to be done, availability of campsites is on a first come first served basis. Payments are based on the Honor System (there are envelopes at the entrance of the park where you deposit the camping fees), so......please bring cash.

Bring the usual: camping gear, lots of water, snacks, food, at least one bundle of firewood, bug repellent, sunscreen and the spirit of your choice.

I plan on and should need more more than 3-4 mail drops.

Many Items I will purchase locally, I should only have to mail drop items that I custom make like Dehydrated Vegs. and Pemmican.

I worked out carrying up to 7 days of food, around 5 Lbs. High density calories.
