Ep. 530: Thru-Hiking the Florida Trail (With a Skateboard) - Alex Fogt


Need something wild to do in the winter? You can hike (and skateboard some of) the entire 1,300 miles of endless pine forests, sandy beaches, and gator-infested swamps of the Florida Trail. An adventure that doesn't see very many participants compared to some of the other big trails in the US. 

Today we talk to Alex Fogt who took it on last winter and says it's up there with anything else he's ever done! It's a unique experience, to say the least, and will show you the real Florida far from Disney World and condo-covered beaches.
