I havenít paddled the Glades but my wife and I are headed there this year. Sounds like you will beat us down there by about a month. I do have experience paddling the Ocklawaha, St. Johns, Silver, Santa Fe, Suwannee, Wekiva, Rock Springs, Juniper Springs Alexander springs, Salt springs, Hillsboro, and other central FL rivers and spring runs. I do like the twisty stuff. I live in SC and paddle the coastal marshes and piedmont and low country rivers class 2 at most. I have paddled WW on the Chattooga in a tandem canoe many years ago.
I mostly sea kayak these days, but my wife is a bit intimidated by rough open water so I thought a light weight canoe would be better for some paddling in the glades together. Maybe I can hook up with someone to paddle a bit on the outside or do a couple of over night solos in my kayak.
