    clyde butcher's swamop walks

    iwas wondering if anybody here on apug had ever attended one of clyde butcher's swamp walks, and if they are worth the trip.i'm afraid ,i couldn't do them with my handicap of needing a crutch for walking.
    Regards

    I've conversed with Clyde a time or two but never had the fortune of a meet and greet, let alone a swamp walk. But he is a great guy to talk with.

    Keep it light.

    Clyde is a great guy and very interesting to talk to. I've been to two of his Labor Day parties at his home near Everglades City; but never ventured on one of his swamp walks while there (been too fearful). Did observe and they do come back quite muddy/soaked up to their necks. Clyde no longer leads them but rather an experienced guide does. There is a 12' gator in his backyard pond. A few years back the curator of Kanapaha Botanical Gardens near Gainesville had his arm tore off by a gator while wading in one of their water lily ponds. They can stay submerged for 5 minutes or more while you're walking/wading into their habitat. I prefer the shoreline with snake boots for my photography ;-)
