SURVIVING THE WILDS – One of the purposes of writing Book # 1 is to bring awareness to the importance of having survival kits when you venture out into the wild to go hiking or camping even if the trails are marked. I recommend the book “Surviving the Wilds of Florida” for Florida parks. There are solar-powered cellphone chargers for sale on Amazon.

DON’T LET EXOTIC PETS LOOSE – This is one of the other purposes for Book #1. Exotic and invasive animals and plants can wreak havoc on indigenous animals and plants. This is not a problem isolated to the Everglades.
BOAT TOURS AND ACTIVITIES TO DO IN THE EVERGLADES – Airboat tours by the Everglades city go through mangrove tunnels while the ones west of the city tend to go through slough and tall sawgrass. I will post more on FB regarding the tours. They are trying to ban commercial airboats so I hope you get a chance to visit one soon.
