    Here here. If in a remote area of the Glades I want a real compass. I don't want to be wading around in the dark in that situation. Easy enough to miss a blaze or two in flooded areas last time I was there which admittedly was 15 yrs ago..

    I'm sure the Collier County Sheriffs Department is well aware of where the FT is through Big Cypress. A heli covers that segment in probably less than 10 mins. Looks like the hikers were out in the open making rescue easier.

    I would very much like to hear the type of hiking the hikers are most familiar.
