It just so happens, I decided to go camping for the first time since being a kid. It also just so happens that I decided to do so alone, by my self. I went to the Everglades, home of Alligators, Crocodiles, poisonous Rattlesnakes and many more, oh and some storks. I started late, meaning, it was getting dark when I got to the parking area. That meant that the 4 mile hike, my first backpacking hike EVER, would be in the pitch black surrounded by invisible creatures. Luckily, during registration, I met a couple other guys, Weber and Fred, who were also late and planning on hiking to the MUCH further Old Ingraham back-country site, which was nearly 12 miles down the path. I was staying in the closer Ernest Coe camp site so I happily invited them to join me there if they didn’t want to hike that far with all of their gear in no light land. They accepted. I wore the Vibram Five Finger KSOs figuring it was a perfect time for my feet to get used to outdoors type activity. Little did I know, my feet were both not ready at all and more ready than ever.
