Getting ready for the Myakka Skunk Ape expedtion

This weekend should be wild man. Stacy Brown jr, and his crew, along with 30 researchers from around Florida, and from out of state, will hit Myakka River State Park for a Skunk Ape expedition. This has taken some planning and it may be the first time different groups have agreed to work together, and not let their egos get in the way. Will see if that really happens. I hope so.

I am picking up a researcher from out of State at Tampa International Airport and taking him to the expedition. We should arrive about mid-day. We will investigate the sighting area, then, backpack out to the primitive camping areas for night investigation. I should just leave my stuff up because we will camp out the next night, as well. Will see what happens.

We will also have a town hall meeting just like you see on TV. How cool is that! It seems many people in Myakka have had sightings and they are now willing to come forward and share their stories with researchers. That will be a lot of fun.

This video is Kevin using his thermal camera to test it on me in total darkness. The white tee shirt I have on really shows up well in the darkness. We will be using that extensively this weekend.
