We put the "choppy" in Sopchoppy. For our first time out in the field, the Manateem, (our very approprite team name) lopped and chopped our way through the Apalachicola National Forest just outside of the small town of Sopchoppy, FL. Machetes, a Cane Knife, loppers, basically any blade we could get our gloved hands on were used to tear through the heavily overgrown section of the Florida National Scenic Trail. The weather was nice and we spent one night out in the wilderness that houses some very large swamps. Along with the trail corridor being cut in, we used the Florida Orange trail blaze paint to revamp the visual markers to assits the brave souls who would hike this section of trail.
It was only a four day hitch, but the Manateem quickly became solidified in their shared experiences having a lot of fun and getting some very much need work done.
