How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Pingy Head is the first Central Florida (Greater Orlando) traditional/multi cache(it's been both through the years). The cache site is located near the Clay Pit of beautiful Mead Gardens.
UPDATE: The sign that the the original location coordinates was based on has been removed. Until I can update the cache description based on another information sign located in the park, the cache coordinates listed above will take you directly to the cache location. DO NOT USE the following to search for the cache. The information sign concerning the clay pit is no longer there. The coordinates listed for the cache will take you to an information sign about the Clay Pit. To find the actual cache coordinates, you will need to obtain information from this sign. Subtract 53,826 from the total acres of the Lake Monroe Subbasin and enter the result here N28._ _._ _ _ Subtract 71,178 from the total acres of the Lake Jesup subbasin and enter the result here W81._ _._ _ _ These coordinates will lead you a short distance to the actual cache location. The cache is enclosed in an ammo box. Please place the cache back as you found it to prevent muggles from finding it. This was my first cache placement, way back before you could find a cache on every street corner. By the way, I ask Sarina my four year old daughter (she's 19 now) what she wanted to name the cache, and she's the one who came up with '"Pingy Head"-Go figure! Please be mindful that the cache is located in an area that could be considered prime snake habitat (like a lot of areas in Florida). Basic exploration techniques should be exercised. Happy caching!
