Destin local Jerry Ogle is currently underway in his charity hike to raise funds for Destin’s Hosanna House. Ogle and a friend are hiking the Florida Trail from North to South under the trail names T-bone and Sunny D. The latest update from Oct. 5 placed the two hikers just south of Crestview on the Eglin Reservation.

“The rain stopped by the time we started hiking,” Ogle said of the first day out. “It was cool and cloudy, but we had a 30-mile an hour headwind, and we had to walk on the road because of the high surf on one side and flooded dunes on the other. Most of the road was underwater. Even with that, we hiked 11 miles in almost four hours and had a great day. The next two days were about the same…11 miles a day, and by September 30th we were done with the beach.”
