Woke up a bit worse for the wear this morning, the hospitality shown to me last night was too much to turn down and we ended up talking and drinking late into the night.
Walked slowly into the town of Bristol, stopping once at a local gas station with a hot grill for breakfast, continuing on a few more miles and getting a small amount of lunch later in the day.
Whole day was on roads, until the last quarter of a mile. Hot day as well, mid 80's and a hot hot sun.
Camped next to the engorged Chipola River this evening in the Wilderness Management Area withcthe same name. It's a wide, quick moving river whose banks are swollen with water, covering the trail in places.
Should make tomorrow's hiking adventurous.
