Less than two months to go, and we are well into our training, trying to strengthen our legs and trim down our waistlines so we'll feel strong and able when we're out on the trail. We're walking at least six miles a day whenever we can, and carrying loaded backpacks. The photo below, from a couple of weeks ago, was made at San Felasco Hammock State Preserve. We are fortunate indeed to have great places to walk, near Gainesville, Cedar Key of course, and the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge.
