Heads up! Planned Flamingo to Chokoloskee Trip, Jan 11-Jan 17, 2010
Polecat and I (and maybe Quirkster) are planning a 7-day trip along the Gulf coast of the Everglades from Flamingo to Chokoloskee. If you don't know, this is along the southwestern tip of mainland Florida. The tentative schedule will be
Jan 11, 2010 Monday Flamingo to Middle Cape Sable (15 mi) or Northwest Cape (19 mi)
Jan 12 Tuesday Mid Cape/NW Cape to Highland Beach (23/19 mi)
Jan 13 Wed Fishing day/relaxing--fish Broad River or Lostman's River. If you don't fish, relax and enjoy Highland Beach. HB is a terrific place to spend some time. Because of tide considerations we must leave tomorrow. We will have a fish fry tonight.
Jan 14 Thursday Hi-Land to Hog Key (7 mi) Catch fish along the way. Fish sandwiches for dinner.
Jan 15 Friday Hog Key to Pavilion Key (13 mi)
Jan 16 Saturday Relax, fish Pavilion. Pavilion is justifiably referred to as the "Gem of the Everglades." Pavilion is a guaranteed “fish fry night.”
Jan 17 Sunday Pavilion to Chokoloskee landing (9 mi)
Several trip reports in this area have been posted on another thread--although the recent format change has messed up some of the reports, you can still get an idea of the environment. The link to Polecat and my AI trip in 2008 is http://www.hobiecat.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=7276&start=30
Scroll down until you see the title, “Flamingo to Chokoloskee Trip, Feb 25-Mar 2, 2008.”
If only 2-3 AI owners do this trip, I can arrange the logistics. If there are more, we will have to be creative to shuttle people/cars around.
