Toms Tips On Keeping an Eye Peeled

By Tom Neale, 1/19/2012

1. Don’t take for granted that police, big brother, fire and rescue, the town council or whomever is watching out for you on the ICW.

2. Much of it is still remote and those areas that aren’t remote often have creatures to which you may be unaccustomed in your home neighborhood.

3. If you’re exploring ashore in a remote wilderness-like area, have with you some sort of legal "weapon," such as, for example, an oar or a strong boathook (although I don’t mean to imply that I know that either of these would discourage an aggressive gator). Use it carefully and responsibly.
