An interesting view of the confluence of the Itchtucknee and Santa Fe Rivers in Central Florida. The crystal blue waters of the Itchtucknee is on the right.

Just got back from the 2015 Florida Paddler's Rendezvous. Here I am taking a moment at Telford Spring on the Suwannee River.

Help make a difference in Florida's future by donating or resharing this awesome kickstarter project. Only 13 days left in the campaign!
 
Every year I choose a cause to stand behind and this one grabbed my attention. Children are our best hope for protecting the environment for future generations and I think this comic book can help do just that. There are only 13 days left in the campaign, so act quickly. If you can't spare a few dollars, please reshare and lets see if we can help this project get off the ground. Thanks!!

Today I attended the Florida Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) conference in Panama City conducted by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and partner agencies. There was a wealth of information, workshops and discussions. The only thing that didn't set well with me though, was during one question and answer segment, the speaker made the statement that the majority of hikers were middle-aged white males. I had to speak up right then and there...  I'm a woman and I hike. I kayak. I bicycle. I camp. I fish. I also know a lot of women that get out there to do the same activities. I can't believe that this is a hard fact. Any ladies out there want to weigh in?

The video below is the reason I haven't been posting much on the website this summer. I just completed the Coastal course in the Florida Master Naturalist Program. I spent a lot of time doing field work and exploring new and wonderful places that I will be writing articles for soon. Please enjoy this 8 minute video.

I have an emergency beacon and don't feel that it detracts from adventuring. For me, personally, I don't intend to use it unless it's an actually emergency, such as if I break my leg on a remote hiking trail or I'm in a life threatening situation. I still don't hike or kayak beyond my abilities. I still let people know where I'm going and when I intend to be back. I have other survival skills that I can fall back on until I make my way out of the wilderness. PLBs are meant to be used responsibly. I'm thinking that those people that repeatedly "cry wolf" with them should be penalized.

Thanks to +Chris Townsend for posting this one earlier. Good food for thought.

That seems reasonable. I understand his concern but that really seems pretty fair...of course, I don't have any experience doing what you do so my opinion is worth everything you paid for it. ;-)

Here's a before and after of the repairs on Turkey Creek. The culverts that once supported the old Eglin Railroad collapsed and the creek has been cleared and reopened to #kayaking
