"Years back... don't ask me how many... they closed the West Lake access also. At that time some enterprising fellows opened a hole in the mangroves along the road to continue to access the lake. It might have been at that second culvert too,…"

"Not down, but I did peek up from West Lake and it looked pretty bad. That last 100 yards across the embankment was always the worst 'cuz that is where the larger trees are. Up above that, in the maze might be possible but that last stretch will…"

New River camp?

Has anyone paddled up the New River (east of Chokoloskee) since Irma?I have enjoyed camping on the mound during the coldest parts of winter, but I don't want to paddle over and find the creek is still impassable.See More

"I think it will be awhile before it will be safe to assume creeks are completely open, even after a good report. I know that around Flamingo, some areas look like there has been about an 80% die off of the mangroves due to Irma. The trees are now…"

Hi Gary,

You can email me at robert.v.sobczak@gmail.com

Not sure if you're a novel reader, but you might enjoy the new book that I co-wrote:

The Legend of Campfire Charlie:

Celebrating the 100th Birthday of America's National Parks

By Robert V. Sobczak and Rudi Heinrich.

I think you might enjoy - it's funny - and fast paced - and right up your alley.

It's available in Kindle format, but if you go to amazon you can download it on any mobile device (i.e. ipad, phone, laptop).  Here's the link: https://www.amazon.com/Legend-Campfire-Charlie-Celebrating-Birthday-ebook/dp/B01ED79KP6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1465674791&sr=8-1&keywords=the+legend+of+campfire+charlie
