Forest Minions: From all the Forest Minions:

We would like to thank you so much for spending the weekend with us in the middle of the woods. Though sheer willpower and a lot of luck we were able to avoid chiggers, ticks, and alien abduction.......well.......mostly!

This event is made great by all of you! Everyone who attends to share stories of the days adventures, chomp down on some yummy grub, mingle at camp with old friends along with making new ones, offering up extra jeep seats, catching an eerie flick, and campfire stories with melty s'mores and burnt popcorn.

Some of us are skipping this years hibernation and already starting on plans for next year. Florida's first ever MEGA geocaching event is going to be celebrating its 15th year in 2019. We are a bit smaller in size now, but our heart is bigger then ever. Next years event will be October 17th through October 20th, 2019. Thanks to each and every one of you for your continued support and we look forward to playing in the woods with you again next year!
