Welcome to Long Walker Hikes!
- Chronicle my hiking trips.
- Provide info on hiking trails.
- Gear reviews and updates.
My very first hiking trip was in the swamps of Big Cypress. From then on my love of the outdoors was forged and I was hooked.
I remember my first pack, it was an old external frame pack from JC Penny’s or maybe Sears. I carried canned food, a sterno stove and a Boys Scout mess kit. Boy, those were the days. A lot has changed since then. Now it’s an Ultralight pack, ultralight gear and best of all, no more sore shoulders!
While serving in the Military, I kinda fell out of the outdoors lifestyle. Many years later, I was watching a YouTube video and my interest was peak once more. Since then I haven’t looked back.
I hope that this Blog will help the Beginner as well as the seasoned hiker. My goal, is to provide insight as well knowledge about the outdoors. I also will share info on trails and promote hiking in the great state of Florida.
