Semper Fi Traditional Geocache

This cache has been archived.

South Tampa: Well, I stopped by my cache today to rescue the TB Tasty Berry prior to archiving the cache. I found the cache container (Tupperware) gone and the inside (sealed & bagged) contents on the ground nearby. I thought everything was intact. However, it looks like the TB tag and little written note became separated from the Tasty Berry. After I thought about it, I wondered if an inexperienced cacher may have removed the tag and kept Tasty Berry without knowing that it was a TB?

With the owner of the TBs permission I was going to print a copy of the original Tasty Berry picture and still let the bug's tag and note travel with the picture (sort of like a memorial to the original) on its way back north.

Thanks to all who visited the cache also. Semper Fi is now archived.

Geocache Description:

GANDY PARK, SOUTH SIDE OF GANDY ON EAST END OF BRIDGE

This is an easy one-minute walk from the parking area, in a little-known park with a fishing area. This cache is the first one our family has hidden.

The cache is a medium-sized Rubbermaid container with a blue lid.

Please note that if you are approaching from the east, the entrance is the last turn-off before a long bridge. If you miss it, you’ll have about a 5-minute scenic drive before a u-turn to come back.

Clue tells you exactly where it is, so don’t decode unless necessary.

This cache was originally hidden in A.J. Palonis Park on the other side of Gandy next to the Marine Corps Building. Recent security issues caused us to move the cache.
