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. Mead Gardens is a hidden gem in Winter Park. Come find Central Florida's oldest geocache and spend a little time exploring the beauty of this park!

Happy hunting! Please remember to recover Pingy Head the way you found it. Since Pingy Head is a larger cache, it is more prone to being muggled. 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. This was my first cache placement, way back before you could find a cache on every street corner. I asked Sarina (my four year old daughter -she's 19 now) what she wanted to name the cache. First thing she came up with was "Pingy Head"-Go figure! Happy caching! Ger and Sarina
