"All of that area was farmed before the park was around and much of it after the park opened. The northern part of the road and the areas north and south of the research road were farmed up to the 1970's and when abandoned went to Brazilian…"

"Does anyone know the history of that squared out area between the EC campsite and the zig zag? I guess it has some agricultural background but the different sizes of the blocks, and the incomplete roadbeds/ canals sure makes it curious! BTW I…"

"You could definitely ride it with a regular road bike. Last summer I rode down to the Ernest Coe campsite with my road bike. I had to turnaround due to a fading light and not having lights on my bike so I can't say that that applies for certain…"

"Went for a nice ride this afternoon. Scouting for a landing from the Taylor Slough Route. It looks pretty thick & hard to reach down at the curve before the coe campground. A campground approach looks totally out of the question, it's a…"

"I was a member earlier on but got deleted (I think) due to inactivity. I was in a car wreck. Anyway. Is this still the active site or is the new site functional. Went there and it had zero posts in all forums."

"I fish and have found myelf entangled (accidently of course) in fishing line. A knife comes in handy for this and many situations including slicing your own throat should a python attack you. LOL!  Since I am accident prone I don't buy a…"

"I used to carry a lightweight divers knife clipped to my PFD, but eventually realized it was silly. It now lives in the bottom of a deck bag, along with a fillet knife for preparing fish that I don't catch.  I take a folding saw for…"

"Knife question. What sort of knife do you all carry in the kayak, how do you mount it, and what is the eventuality that motivated you to buy/install the knife you carry in your boats?   I bought a kabar style knife, as all I have had in the…"
