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.

Next headline:

Bottles of free water laced with Rohypnol at the halfway mark of Tamiami Trail cause tragedy for some, full bellies for others.

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

I just want to stand on the trail, waiting for a bicyclist to come near so I can push them into a group of alligators.

The path, which would be 12 to 14 feet wide, would be available to cyclists, bird watchers, pedestrians, people in wheelchairs - but no motor vehicles. Also available to alligators, Burmese pythons, and maybe even a Florida panther.

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.

How long would it take a 20 foot gator to be conditioned to attack anything in spandex, jogging or cycling?  Set up webcams with color commentary, "...and the gator has just latched on to slim jim and the twins so I don't think contestant number 7 is going anywhere other than down Mr. Toothy's throat."

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.
