    But here's the thing, as it's getting toward dusk, that's when the mosquito starts becoming a problem, and there is nothing, and I mean nothing that will drive you out of your mind sooner than not being able to get away from a cloud of those.

    But with a little preparation and some experience not only will you find the Everglades a beautiful place to explore but a national treasure to be appreciated.
    Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate and did I mention you must hydrate

    @Doc...Valley is this super kayak,my friend just bought an AVOCET... loves it. I'm more of the SOT kayaker (Ocean Kayak) but sit in side's are very popular down in the 10,000 Islands area.

    @docterusa... one more thing about the Everglades, and this may sound funny but it can get kind of grim, the raccoons are experts at stealing your water as in chewing through anything plastic and drinking it. I usually either hang it or put it inside my kayak.

    Sun biz,

    I have been looking for this particular Valley for a LONG time. The OK's are great Glades boats for sure. I keep one in the boathouse here on Cockroach Bay. I have had about 12 kayaks since I was 10 or so and would you know what one of my favorites for the backcountry is? The Walden Passage! They are not made any longer, but it is a hard chined boat with a skeg.

    To our fellow tribe,

    This is all GREAT ADVICE on the Everglades. Take it all very seriously. If possible go with someone at least your first few times. Things have a way of looking the same after traveling miles. If you do not have some one to guide you, ease your way into it. Take a mile in paddle or hike and camp and out the next day. It is definitely a different world. When I was a kid we could wade waist deep through a swamp or take a bath in one of the natural limestone "ponds" and have someone on shore keep a lookout for large gators. The gators generally naturally stay away from you in places with no human contact. I would probably warn AGAINST this sort of thing these days with the pythons and anacondas roaming under water. Just be careful and use common sense.

    If anyone is interested, when I heal up from my spinal surgery, I plan to go down to kill some pythons. We could get together and hang as well.

    Cheers,
    Doc
