It rained steady, but not hard, all morning, as I sloshed my way through Ocala’s pines and firms. In for raingear I was comfortable. But due to poor planning I had forgotten my rain overshoes and my feet were quickly soaked. Special toe socks prevented the dreaded foot blisters. By afternoon, as the sun rose, I was dry once again.
Then I heard the news report that a super storm complete with lightning was about to come through. Bravely, I thought, I retreated after walking 16 good miles along the Florida Historic Trail.
