I had been talking to Casey for a few years about taking a winter vacation in Key West. I had visited there during a road trip with some buds after getting out of the Army in the late 1970s. Back then, driving down the keys was an amazing experience. Back then, Key West was a seedy, raucous, and outrageously expensive place (especially given I was …
... point. Once aboard the airboat, we took off and it was the most amazing experience ever, zooming along over the water & even over the sawgrass! Oz, our driver, took us to a bushy area and started to whistle...I'm thinking, "is he calling the alligators?" :) But as it turns out, Oz is calling some birds that he has known since they were babies.

This was a great place to stay after an Everglades paddling trip that departed from the Everglades Area Tours location within easy walking distance.
