Thursday evening (3/11)
SB and several other kayakers reached CP3 at Flamingo Thursday evening at about 5:30 pm. All of them decided to wait for morning to start the 37 mile crossing of Florida Bay to the finish line.


The route from CP2 at Chokoloskee was a long and winding road that included two nights of camping scheduled for the Lostmans Five chickee and the Shark River chickee.
