Hi, I'm Jim, AKA Dirty Gil, and I will be hiking the Florida Trail this winter. Despite being a native Floridian, and being a Florida Trail Association member on and off for more than 30 years, I have never strung the entire trail up in one trip. This is the year to do just that. I completed the AT in 2013, the PCT in 2016, and look to add many more arrows to my quiver of trails. Follow my personal blog on ewokthetrail.com if you want to see daily posts.
