We don’t usually post about holidays as we just don’t have the time to sit down and write blog posts that we’d be happy with. This holiday was no exception!
We got a couple of quick caches just after we arrived in Orlando but left the main caching day until the next day as we knew we’d be up early and so decided to work off the jet lag with some caching. After scouring the maps from home we decided the caches along State Road 44 between Eustis and De Land were the ones to head for.
The caches were all quick and easy, with a nice variety of hides and containers to keep the interest up. We ended up the day with 85 finds and finished in good time so we headed off for dinner in a local restaurant.
The rest of the holiday we did not do that much caching and instead opted to cache as we were out and about doing other things. We managed to find at least a few caches every day and really enjoyed some of the sneakier hides.
There is not a lot else I can really add apart from we had a great time and really appreciated the creativity of the local cacher’s. The variety of hides is much wider than we find in California and perhaps even more so than the UK too. We’ve also picked up some great ideas for new caches we can set at home [insert evil a grin here].
As a footnote, a volcano with an un-pronounceable name erupted in Iceland the day before we were due to fly home and cause all UK airspace to be shut for the best part of a week. We were thus delayed coming home to the UK by 5 days, but enjoyed the extra time in Florida as Disney World and Sea World were giving stranded passengers free access to their theme parks. Needless to say we took full advantage of this and had a whale of a time.
We even managed a FTF on a Florida cache during our extended stay.
168 finds for the holiday in the end
