Cumberland Island, GA
Do you find yourself lacking an awesome plan for spring break?
Do you like islands?
Do you find armadillos amusing?
Do you like backpacking on flat trails?
Do wild horses outside your tent in the morning excite you?
Do you want to see ruins of Great Gatsby’s mansion? (well it’s the Carnegie Mansion…)
Then you should join my spring break trip.

Savannah all day – Hiking and geocaching
Sun 3/16/2014 9:00am Break Camp
Return to Ch’ville
Hiking will be 10-15 miles a day on Cumberland (with I suspect relatively heavy packs), and most of the trails at Skidaway Island (night hiking) and Ft Pulaski (beach hiking and sitting/vball on Tybee Island) and Downtown Savannah (city hiking).
What’s the catch? Gas is expensive and the club doesn’t pay for food anymore. So the cost for the trip will be $100, and I need to get it a week before we head out. Additionally, I only have 8 ferry ticket reservations (the amount I reserved back in December). Priority off the waitlist to drivers with large cars.
