Geo-caching in January

Jan 5, 2011

The winter months in Florida are wonderful to experience outdoors. The weather is perfect, no bugs and with much of the foliage dried up it makes for easy geo-caching! I joined my friends Robin and Sheryl for a morning of caching at Trout Creek Park in Tampa, Florida this week. This is an outstanding location to bike or hike with many trails offered and beautiful views of lakes and the Hillsborough River! We marked 12 caches that we wanted to find and were at the park at 9:30 am to get started.

Geocaching Trout Creek

The first few were along the entrance road so we stopped and started the cars a couple of times. Then we parked at the pay station, checked in and headed to the canoe ramp. We found that area under construction and that was our only DNF (Did Not Find) for the day. Our treasure hunting took us through the forest, up trails, around lakes and even into an area that is under water in the summer. We had perfect weather and even had a breeze kick up in the afternoon. We had found all of our caches by 2 pm and soon were headed back home. It is always fun to spend a day outdoors with friends! Not a Clue Adventures wil be happy to introduce you to the sport of geo-caching! Give us a call to set up your trip! This is a wonderful activity for all ages and great for groups as well as families and individuals. 813-789-0904

About notacluegal

Jeanene was born in Pittsburgh, PA. As a young child her family was very active in the outdoors. Things changed when her parents decided to travel down different paths in life and with that decision so went many of the opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Being lucky to live in the suburbs Jeanene always had a backyard to play in and loved being outdoors. As the years passed she took every opportunity to be outdoors. She bought land in Tennessee and as a single mom moved her young daughter to the mountains. The were many life lessons learned on that mountain. There was no plumbing on the property – or even a house, but that did not stop her. She learned to live off of what was available and built her own cabin from the trees on her property. Those were rough years but the most rewarding. Now Jeanene resides in Tampa, Fl. and works as an office manager full time….but still yeans to be outdoors. Jeanene started “Not a Clue Adventures” to teach everyone she could how wonderful the outdoors are! That camping and fishing and hiking can be done by everyone and at many different levels. Single mom’s no longer have to be afraid to take their sons and daughters outdoors. By working with young couples, single parents and even seniors, she gets to teach others about her love for the outdoors and hopes to open their eyes to new adventures. In 2009, Jeanene completed certification as a Leave No Trace Instructor. She also works closely with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) and the Florida State Parks. Jeanene is also certified in First Aid/Adult CPR.
