[ft-l] Hello! (new lister)

Dear Eric,
There is hunting in Seminole State Forest on Sat and Sun on Jan.
In SSF there is water (all must be treated) near the south entrance,
Blackwater Creek, .1 mile north of Sulfur Run Campsite.
I strongly advise you to carry maps and compass in addition to PDA or GPS.
Most of this trail is well marked, but there are some sections that can be
confusing.  See all recent messages by Rick Evans and Sandy
FTCracker@aol.com about their hikes in these sections.

> Hello,
>     I'm Eric Primack and I'm leaving to hike on the Florida Trail next
week (Jan 16 or 17).  I just graduated from Florida State University with a
degree in theatre, but I'm not an actor - I run sound for live bands mostly.
>     I'll be hiking northbound from the Kissimee River area (near Sebring)
to Juniper Springs campground in the Ocala National Forest.  I'll get to
Farles Prarie Campground in the Ocala Nat'l Forest around Feb. 1st, and
possibly stay there for a week with a spontaneous group of individuals
 members.xoom.com/FL_Family/ ).  Everyone is welcome.
>     Does anybody want to accompany me part/all of the way?
>     Does anyone live near Sebring and could give me a ride to the trail
(I'll get a bus to Sebring)?
>     Also, if someone could somehow provide me with an electronic copy of
the data about the trail, I would greatly appreciate it.  Then I can put it
in my PDA (like a Palm Pilot) and just carry that instead of any maps or
other paper.
>     Any other suggestions will be helpful.  I've emailed with Jim Pace and
Doug McCoy about the Kissimee River area, but north of that I would like to
know, for example, how likely the water supplies will be flowing well.  Oh,
also, I have looked at the hunting website
(http://www.state.fl.us/fwc/hunting/seasons-00-01.html ), and it seems to
say that no hunting is in season.  Is this correct?
