infosponge: This cache is almost a year old, which is pretty darn ancient by my standards. I'll let someone else take a stab at placing and running a travel bug portal. There may even be a better location for out-of-towners to find than this little park.

Thanks to all who've visited and helped all the travelers on their way!

I'll visit the portal soon and pick up any bugs that get dropped off in the meantime.

Geocache Description:

A Travel-Bug-0nly cache near the Tampa International Airport.

NOTE: NEW COORDINATES POSTED 6/24/2003

This cache is located in Skyway Park, very close to TPA, so it should be a convenient place to swap travel bugs for people who are traveling in and out of the Tampa / St. Petersburg area.

The terrain is easy and the walk is just far enough to be out of sight of the parking lot and athletic fields.

Please do not take or leave anything except Travel Bugs!

Please do not take ALL the travel bugs. :) It's OK to take more than one if you can genuinely help them along, but try to let everyone have a chance to participate.

It's OK to just stop by and pick up a bug without leaving one, if you can help it on it's journey.

When you leave a travel bug, write it's goal in the log book so that people can decide which bug to take.

Very important: Please re-hide the cache well, so that it is not plundered!! There are plenty of dead palm fronds around to use as camoflage if you need them.

This is also a nice spot to watch the airplanes taking off or landing on the N/S runways!
