Thank you Marshall!

Post by rsobczak »

Don't know if I have a vote:

But I would like to nominate this airboat captain as a new guardian of the glades.

Thank you too to Tammy, Priscilla, Kim and the venerable Mike Collins (not shown).

But most of all to Marshall.

He not only got us from Point A to B and back.

He took us on the scenic route (literally Points C through Z)!

It was fun and informative and time well spent.

We got soaked, dried off, and talked about life.

Thank you Marshall!!! :salute: :old_glory: :florida:

:thumbleft: :salute:
It was an honor to ba a part of such an Historic event!
Thank you to all parties involved, mostly however, thank you Mike Elf for putting it all together. He is a highly involved activist on OUR behalf. If any of you are able and or willing to be more involved, now is the time.
Mike Elf needs our support.
A unified voice is more important now than ever! Please get up to date on current Everglades happenings and if you aren't able to personally be involved, Mike could use a little financial support for his efforts. He travels a lot on our behalf, often completely at his own expense.
I am not very tech savvy, but we should start a
GoFund Me for Mike. It will be money well spent!

Safe journeys gantlemen. Make the most of our natural resources, teach the kids to love and respect them. It is theirs to know and enjoy, let's keep our rights as long as possible.

I agree OMJ! I've been out in the field on a lot of trips, but that day stands out in my mind above all the rest. I felt like I was witnessing history. Hats off to Mike Elf for orchestrating the day and getting everyone involved. That is a day I will forget none to soon. I am already trying to do my part to follow up to keep rolling what we discussed. :salute:

Guys, I really want to know what this conversation is about and how to help. But no one can view the pics and the conversation is like Greek Mythology to me at the moment.

Please enlighten us all with more explanation on the event, what was discussed and how we can help.
