Sounds like a great idea to me.  


Full disclosure: I am from Florida.  I remember.  I remember camping in the forest, which always had to be near a water source to be a viable camping spot, and since Florida is flat, all water sources are still and quiet.  Fill in the blanks.


I see far more potential good here than potential harm.
