Wekiwa Springs State Park - January 2007


wssp-01-07-017.JPG

As our once-a-week hike in perpetuity, this week Jenny, Don, and I headed to the familiar stomping grounds of Wekiwa Springs State Park, four miles from my house. It was a fine January day, fine company, and fine scenery. Alas, I didn't get a helluva lot of sleep last night, so the usual proliferation of photographs is not forthcoming. There are enough, though, to put you to sleep (and me, too!).

Potts Preserve - January 2007

Friend Jenny and I grabbed the camping gear and headed to Potts Preserve, near Inverness, Florida, for a couple of days of camping, geocaching by sunlight and moonlight, hiking, Jeeping, and nature. It was a great way to ring in the new year.

Old Geocaching Buddies98 viewsAs Joe T and I searched for a Geocache on the Old Beaver Dam Road at Ricketts Glen State Park, we ran into an old friend, Jon, who was coincidentally camping with his family at the park. Jon had been a prominent Geocacher in central Florida before moving to Pennsylvania a couple of years ago. However, he lives perhaps 100 miles from this park. What are the chances of such a random meeting occurring?
