Zombie DJ: So....destroying wildlife to see it.

AM I TAKING CRAZY PILLS!?


Oh, stop it. The path is supposed to parallel the Tamiami Trail (U.S. 41) where it runs across the Everglades. If you've ever been there (I've lived near both ends of the affected area), you would know the path is not a bad idea. It would certainly be safer than walking or biking along the shoulder of U.S. 41. As for destroying wildlife... give me a f*cking break. Everything that is done in that area these days takes the wildlife and the ecosystem into consideration. A 14-foot wide path isn't going to be allowed to "destroy wildlife." Why don't you go down there and take a look at it for yourself?

I think it's a great idea. I would love to hike that path when they get it done.

Early on in my Army sponsored visit to Florida, we had a family picnic at Fox Lake Park in Titusville. First clue was the alligator infestation  signs by the water. Then I saw a Dad and his older son paddling a canoe  with two little girls in between them. The alligators were all over! We finished our picnic with a pistol on the table.

Locals clued me in to not be such a nit wit later, but I freaked out a bit because I was thinking of the children  TM.

How about the obvious question, why the fark do you really need a path through a wild preserve? To ride your bike? Leave it alone.

Oh sure, why don't we pave the whole farking Everglades.  We talk wildlife but do little to help them.  We've overrun the  Earth and still insist that Nature conform to our needs.  We pollute everything we touch and continue to do it. farking fracking and all that.  It will come to bite us in the ass, if not us than our children.

MayoSlather: Gators usually aren't aggressive towards humans so it shouldn't be a problem. I've been within a few feet of them many times while kayaking and they really could give a shiat that you're there. I've also walked by them near lakes and they just scurry away when you get close. Typically only if fed do they come up to people looking for food.


Gee, I just can't imagine some idiot tourist wanting to feed the wildlife out there for a Facebook photo op.

drewbob21: Don't they have Panthers in Florida still?  I'd be ok with a few Florida retirees feeding an endangered species.


 Nah, nothing to worry about. They'll be sending in teams ahead of time to shoot all the panthers so the construction crews will be safe.

Gators are just something we Floridians (FloriDuh-uns)live with. Play a round of golf, guess what? There's a gator swimming across the lake. Maybe sunning itself on the bank. I'm not one of those "hold my beer, watch this!" idiots, but it's a damned alligator. It's like being scared to go in the ocean because OMG A shark is gonna eat me!!! How many of you are scared of toasters or airplanes?

I miss Florida. As I sit in North Jersey, chained to my well paying job (well actually my wife's job...I'd ditch mine in a heartbeat), snow falling...I long for a simpler life full od sunshine, beer, and water.

Grampa could hunt anaconda from his hoverround.  He would love that.  Oh wait, it doesn't go 75 miles on a charge?  OOOPS

This path would make a big, ideal basking spot for gators, water moccasins, pythons, etc.  They may even dig under it to incubate their eggs.  Their populations will rise.  Populations of bikers and joggers will decrease.

Nope, don't see any problems.
