My Adventure Story
From December 25 to December 30, 2011, a small but hearty contingent from Boy Scout Troop 11 in Brandon, FL spent three days canoeing approximately 33 miles on the Peace River from Zolfo Springs to Arcadia. We then spent the next two days doing a loop hike at Myakka River State Park, covering approximately 17 miles. Total distance covered: 50 miles. The weather was perfect, except for a little rain when a cold front came through on the second day. We had a great time. Beautiful scenery, good trail food, great company, and some great exercise. Everybody stayed healthy and safe, except for a few blisters and sore muscles.
