Hot, Wet, Stinky, Beautiful

An unconventional modern adventure gets written up with an unconventional flourish in the Tampa Bay Times.

The stakes of a 100 day, 1,000 mile trek across Florida are pretty high (including running across I-4 and I-10 – neither of which have any way for wildlife to cross).

The expedition was six years in the making.

In 2006 Ward heard about an ambitious road-construction project proposed to run 125 miles from Lee County to Highlands County — directly through some of Central Florida’s last undeveloped private and public lands, smack in the middle of the state’s most important bear and panther wildlife corridor.
