"Has anyone been out in the Loop Road part of Big Cypress? How high is the water north of Loop Road? I have decided to try my luck in the area of the old southern terminus of the trail. Any info on trail conditions would be great."

"I didn't think about the stove. I made one from a small piece of sheet metal that folds down flat for storage. It uses small twigs for fuel. I used it to make pizza on our Big Cypress through hike. I will try and find some pics of it."

Hey man.  Sommer has said you spend lots of time in the everglades.  Do you have any experience with Little Sable Creek?

   There is a book titled "Death in the Everglades, The Murder of Guy Bradley" which I highly recommend. The author takes what could be a one page story and makes quite a tale of it. The reason I recommend it to you is because of the chapter on Cuthbert finding the rookery that now bears his name which in and of itself is quite a story. Warning though, he was a plumer and he found it so he could decimate it.
