Geocaching is about zeroing in on the coordinates, even if the direction leads you into the heart of a swamp. Watch “Swamp Caching” for a trek into the wilds of the Florida Everglades. It’s a caching adventure like no other. Adventurers encounter rare flowers, wild coffee, exotic birds, and even alligators (at a safe distance).

There’s a geocache in there somewhere

Florida geocacher, Lorriebird, takes an expedition into the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park to search for her difficulty 2, terrain 3 geocache, K2. The cache was placed with permission from Florida State Park officials. The geocache was designed to offer an environmental experience to those unfamiliar with swamps.

    I solo’d this cache last March, 2012. It’s amazing to hike back in an area that is ‘original’ Florida. When you’re alone, you sometimes get that creepy feeling you are being watched.
