    Monroe Station, Florida, destroyed by Fire:

    I have written on my Blog and on here about this place....been a few years since I visited the wayside called "Monroe Station" along US 41{Tamiami Trial} in the Everglades....it was a great Jeep Wrangler drive along Loop Road, and I had planned on taking the TW down there and riding....I still will, but it won't be the same without the long since abandoned "Monroe Station" Rest and Fuel Stop to use as a waypoint:

    Let us know when your coming down. Maybe I can break away and join you for a swamp romp.
