"I overnighted at Taylor Camp (D Loop) a few months back. (Very hot weekend) The site wasn't bad at all, almost no skeeters. Getting around Stage Pond was a issue, very flooded and had to detour off the trail a good ways to get through. Boots…"
"If this helps any the primitive campsite on the D loop is in a pretty low-lying area, I would think the mosquitoes would get bad at dusk.
I started where FR 13 crossed the D loop, north of Tillis Hill, and walked counterclockwise so I would be…"
"sorry. just not my thing. I'll take a river walk any day. I have a cabin in Eureka FL near the green way, and one in Franklin N.C. no old burned fields in either place. although there is alot of poison Ivy, lol

""alot of long leaf pine, scrub oaks and sand, nothing special"
Hey, some of us think Sandhill communities are awesome! LOL, you should check out that area again in October when all the wildflowers are in bloom. Amazing…"

"no agenda Jim, I just wing it.
I'm walking the trail walkers list first wich includes loop A @ citrus tract, then watever else I see will be a plus.
I'm most likely to work most of friday but I'll try to get out as early…"
"I'm intrested in the pump too, I'll have to check into that.
I plan on doing north and south loop of the trail walker list.
looks like camping on the river of north loop, I havnt called about it or anything, can you shed some…"
