Georgie: On the Florida Trail

My Dad took us on a practice hike on the Florida Trail for the PCT.  We were going for 100 miles in 6 days.  For the first day our friends, My cousin and my Uncle came. It was very cold! We didn't have enough tents for everyone, so my Dad and I slept under a tarp.

Every day on the trail I have a terrible hour and the third to last day I didn't, because we went fast and ended early! On the second to last day we met a man who's name was Randy.  He offered us a place to stay, but Dad said "No". =(

That same day we did 21.1 miles!  We woke up to the sound of rain and it lasted for 2 hours. When it stopped we got out of our tents saw everything covered in ice, and we were in Florida!

My sister and my brother were hurt so dad called Randy and he picked us up.  That trip I learned that branches freeze and they pop and fall.
