Night into Night Post
I traveled about 26 miles today.
Our overnight plane ride got us to Ft. Lauderdale with no trouble and no sleep. Once we found the Avis counter, we got our car with no trouble. Driving down the Keys was an interesting experience. I couldn't help but try to spy out potential camping spots - a very rare item with water and shrubs much more prevalent than firm land. We swapped our car for a crazy pink taxi at the Key West airport and enjoyed a short, expensive ride to the "southernmost" point of the US. It's pretty amazing how many"southernmost" places there are, from inns to furniture stores. Our hike finally began at the same time as the warm rain. We hiked from key to key until the sun dropped, and then kept going. Our legs were totally exhausted and sore, and I got two bonus blisters. Summerland Key was our destination for the night. I found a couch surfing host who has welcomed us into his home. This is my first couch surfing experience and I'd recommend checking out out. We've been up since yesterday morning so it's time to sign off and hope this night heals the pains for tomorrow's adventure.
