I am working on a plan that will put me on the Florida trail at the half-way point in the Green Swamp of Polk county and up into the Panhandle. It would take me about 8 weeks to walk this trail and do all of the photography and 'squatching that I need to do. Camping out at night isolated scores of miles from civilization would be a golden opportunity that as a Bigfoot researcher I cannot pass up. I plan to start on February 15, 2010. I hope. Tampa Tribune reporter Mike Dewitt said it all when he walked the Florida Trail in 2007, "Florida's soul is on this trail."
