This is a short, and fast cache hunt in a county
park. It should only take you about 30 minutes.
This cache can be found after an easy 15 minute
walk along a trail. The cache far off of the main trail, but is easy to get to
from the trail. Don’t stomp through the heavy brush to get to the cache. You
can reach it by walking through a palmetto maze by walking only on sandy
areas. Please do not harm the local vegetation.
The cache is in a large tupperware-like container
partially covered at the edge of a sandy clearing.

Finally found a way to get to the cache without having to push through
the bushes. Once you know the way, it's easy but we walked most of the
way around the palmetto maze before we found we went the wrong way. Saw
a deer across the creek, near the parking lot. Took the mini spirograph,
left a golf ball and a twisty straw.

Our 2nd cache of 9/1! In a bit of a hurry, so laced up the running shoes
for this one... we were getting ready to do a hash run so it was kind of
a warmup (www.half-mind.com
- read about hashing and find your local group!), Really easy to get to
and nice trail run. Found the cache with no problem. Took glow in the
dark dog ball for Bosco the Golden Retriever (woof!) and left frog
votive candle holder& hand sanitizer. Thanks for the cache!

Domino with a late log. I too jogged in and went crazy in the area
looking for it then, it was obvious and I felt a little foolish, must
have been the heat. Took Madonna CD, left arm of a smiley, Roadhouse
Grill Coupon, and a Domino. On On! Domino /%/ (Gator Hater)

Pleasant 15 minute walk. My oldest daughter was in charge of the GPS and
found the cache first. This was the first of four caches found today
(took 7 hours for all four!!). Good hiding place.

Don't know why this one was hard.... but it was. I should have read the
hints better and avoided the cross country trek through the palmettos
(ouch). On the plus side, I ran into a friendly tortoise guarding the
cache and a deer nearby. A word of caution, this is very near the ranger
station and you may be observed if you blunder cross country (duh).

Found this cache at about 1:30PM. Saw two people walking in the middle
of the maze as I followed the sand trail on the long way around. As I
was signing the log book the two came out of the maze and introduced
themselves as Lance and Mo. We talked on the way back to the cars and
they gave me a few pointers on geocaching. Hope them find all 8 of the

Our third find of the day at 1:30. Started to get real hot and hungry -
after this one it was time for a break. As we got closer to the cache,
we heard someone else walking around in the 'maze'. Sure enough, another
geocacher was just ahead of us. We debated waiting until they left or
going on ahead and saying hi. We did the latter and met a new geocacher
named Gregg. We swapped some geostories and walked back to the parking
lot together. We took the luggage strap and left the Madonna CD and a
Mo & Lance.

Oh yeah this was a walk in the weeds alright. We walked around in THE
MAZE for a while and DaMama finally found the cache, we took some stuff
and left some stuff, (hey I'm tired). We enjoyed the trek though and
DaMama, WHAT A TROOPER, rain, mud, bugs and still a smile. Another fine
job by the J crew. Thanks again. ...Cache Responsable and may all your
birds be in view... ...Faithwalker and DaMama...
