What was your avg daily mileage?
What was the avg temp?
I'm not that knowledgeable about the Everglades, I assumes it brackish to all saltwater? What is the freshwater situation? Are there places to pump or did you have 5 days worth in the hull?
Do you have a solar charger for the camera batteries or did you just bring that many?
Really jealous, looks like an amazing trip.
Thanks! Mileage varied, longest day was over 20 and shortest day was 10, but I'd say 13-15 would be a good average.
Temperature was perfect, high 70s in the day and low to mid 60s at night. We had one "cold front" come through which got it down into the mid-50s one night but it was back in the 70s later that day.
Yes your right, we were in very brackish to saltwater the entire time so we had to pack all of our water with us. We had 6 gallons/person which was just the right amount. There are no places to pump to my knowledge, at least not in the part of the park we were at.
And no I didn't bring any solar chargers, but I did have an extra battery for my sony action cam. I ended up not needing to use them though. Since most of our day just consisted of paddling and not fishing all I really had to do was turn the cameras on for a minute or two a few times throughout the day so I had some footage from the entire trip. If I had been hard-core fishing the entire week that may have been a different story, but all the cameras have good battery life.
