good read on current conditions in Big Pine Key

https://theboatgalley.com/boot-key-h...eid=b9d6dd2c22


This blogpost by Carolyn Shearlock, who is a boater, is good insight into the current state of affairs in the Marathon area. This was the most hard-hit zone damage-wise.

I especially liked her suggestion that anyone visiting pick up a small bag of garbage---one bag at a time, we'll get it done----and also that she encourages people to come to the Keys, as tourism provides dollars to help rebuild.

Having travelled to the Keys pre-Irma, I can only imagine the devastation that was unleashed. Her points are all good ones.

Check Keys State Park web sites. Irma destroyed alot of the campgrounds. Pennekamp appears to be the only one open to camping. At least I hope so because my reservation for Thanksgiving hasn't been canceled.
#KEYS STRONG!

I take I-75 to US 41 thru the Everglades and Big Cypress NPs. Lots to see and do while traveling down US 41. Get gas in Naples because the next gas stop is in Homestead.
When will you be at Pennekamp? I'm there at Thanksgiving.
