The Skunk Ape Research Headquarters, deep in the Florida Everglades, was not the kind of place that we could possibly drive on by, we had to go inside and investigate. What we discovered was the ultimate source for all things Skunk Ape, the Florida cousin in the Bigfoot/ Sasquatch/
After gathering knowledge from the Headquarters, we set out across several hundred yards of mushy grassland to one of the ladder stands that the headquarters has erected. Climbing up to the platform allowed us a much better view of the surrounding area. We scanned the horizon with our binoculars, but once again we saw no sign of a Skunk Ape. We were treated to one of the most spectacular sunsets we’d ever seen, so we felt our first evening’s efforts were not in vain.
The next day we discussed other possible sighting sites and strategies headed out to an area across the highway a mile or two into the glades. Since the trip would cover several miles total we decided to head out on our bicycles, at least as far as we could. After a few miles the trail became too muddy for our bikes and we continued on foot.
