We will be spending two nights by ourselves in the Primitive Group Camping Site at Buck Lake in the Ocala Forest.

Saturday, we will take a 7 mile day hike to Alexander Springs, where we will enjoy swimming and snorkeling in the Springs, and field games, and a Troop lunch.   We'll drive back to Buck Lake in the early evening in time for Dinner.   Sunday, we'll head home on the early side.
