Weekend's sound good. Can you list things you need? Ex: meat dish, vegetarian, etc. Also list of different activities or encourage people to? I'm into hiking, kayaking, beach trips, cook-outs.

This sounds great, will on trip with couple bike rides to do the 1st 2 weekends in march. Heard good things about this island not too far away from Bradenton will have to try sometime hopefully with some good people

Can't commit at this point. We used to paddle over every year in mid-Feb., weather can be nice but more often wasn't. Usually have dolphins within sight of shore. campground was a lot nicer before they chopped down all the trees.

I've also always wanted to do something like this. It would have to be a weekend with possibly a Friday or Monday added on.

It's a very beautiful and historic place. Great snorkeling I've been for a short day trip before. I wouldn't be able to go, but I encourage everyone to visit even if you don't stay overnight.

Hey there, I'm very new to the hiking world. I went on my first hike up Mount Monadnock last weekend. I did White Dot going up and White Cross going down. Since I am very new, I found those trails a little above what I should of done on my first hike. I know problem with the elevation and distance, it was the rocks that troubled me the most. They got slippery and dangerous at times. If you're ever up for a hike, not rock climbing, I would be insterested in meeting for for company. I just don't

I just thought mountain bike due to the ability to go on any trails in the area. But could look at road rides as well if that's what guys would prefer to do. I'm open to anything.
