[ft-l] S. Florida Loops

About as close as you get is the Green Swamp in Lakeland where the west loop
heads north. The average thru hike appears to be about 2 months. Winter is
definately better, temp/mosquito/hiking in waterwise. Most leave in
December/January at the end of the wet season after the Big Cypress has had
a chance to get a little drier. We keep thru hikers in the Okeechobee area
if you decide to give it a shot let it know. For further web info check out
Nimblewill Nomad's site he thru hiked twice, and trail journals.com, JoJo
Smiley and B have journals of their thru hike last year.
