Vampire witches who take the form of owls to hunt their prey.  An illiterate career soldier who crawled from the dead only to never tell his tale.  An ancient curse still making itself known in the quiet roads and swamps of Florida.

What are the Stikini and did they spark what is known as the Dade Massacre?

What began as a simple blog post on an obscure Web site sparked a question which may never be answered.  Join the Trippers as they look into the old Seminole witch legend used to explain one of the most important moments in Florida history.  Christopher Balzano and Deanna Mulhern debate the best way to attract one during a legend trip and plan their trip to Central Florida to track one down.
