[ft-l] Re: Hiking Across Big Cypress

I would be interested in doing this hike.

I was planning on doing the section between I-75 and Lake Ockeechobee
towards the end of January, but unless I can get it together, I may not make
the timeline to get permission to cross the reservation. BTW, once you get
up on the dikes I do not see any designated camping areas. Are you allowed
to just set camp anywhere?
