    Default Nw Trail Coordinator

    Just wanted to take a quick moment to let you know that I'm now the FTA Trail Coordinator for the section from Olustee to Stephen Foster State Park in the Suwanee. I may also soon own the section south of Olustee to Lake Butler.

    I am aware of the issues in the Lake Butler area and the numerous clear cuts and re-routes. I spent this weekend getting current GPS tracks to update the FTA site. I still have some work to do though.

    If you're hiking this section and find problems please let me know. Also please share the good stuff. :-) If you're planning on hiking it I'll do my best to answer any questions.

    There goes the neighborhood.

    The trouble I have with campfires are the folks that carry a bottle in one hand and a Bible in the other.
    You never know which one is talking.

    Got that right. They have no idea what they've done.

    Don't take my typing skills as any indication of my future performance. I'm the "New" coordinator, not the "Nw" coordinator. Stupid tablet keyboard.

    I'm not really a hiker, I just play one on White Blaze.

    Well, you can always check out what our chapter is doing via our Meetup site. I certainly wouldn't mind some help when we start fixing the damage from the clear cuts.

    1. That's a good question. I've never thru-hiked it but let me follow up with someone who has.
    2. I don't carry cheese on the trail but I wouldn't think more than a couple of days in the hotter months. You can always wipe the oils off if it's leeching and it should still be good to eat. While I seem to contemplate it on nearly every hike I have yet to actually take it with me. It weighs too much.

    Hey JaxHiker,
    Thanks for responding and the very
    informative information was great!
    I do however have three more
    questions for you.
    1. Is it true that when a person
    is wearing ruby slippers and they click
    their twice do they really go to Kansas?
    2.How many licks is it to the center
    of a tootsie pop?
    3. Does Bumpjumper really hike nude?

    1. No. It's three times.
    2. Also three.
    3. A name I haven't heard in a while. Not can I answer this question.

    Contrary to what you might think being the trail Coordinator hasn't given me the insight of a Tibetan monk.

    Thanks S_F.

    But there's a app for that!
