Caches around the Wycliffe Bible Translator Center
Sumajhuarmi and I arrived at the Wycliffe Bible Translator Center near Orlando, Florida and settled in for a nice conference. I had already scoped out the caches in the area. Since I was last here two years ago it looks like someone on the staff has discovered geocaching. Fortunate me! The next morning at 6 a.m. I headed out ahead of the sunrise to find a group of caches in the area. The weather was cool and pleasant and the paved walkways are great. I was up early enough that I didn't see any joggers for a while. I made my way north and started with The Legend of Wewahottie Willie (GC2KPAT), a cache along the road. This one proved pretty easy. I'd seen this type of cache before. The sun was starting to come up as I made my way back south. All along the way I was able to find caches. Several were in trees, one an LPC and one a nano magnetic. One cache did stump me and I had to give up for lack of time. I will return tomorrow after reading a few of the cache entries for some helpful hints. My favorite of the day I did after lunch. It was the only regular size cache in the area and I wanted to introduce a friend to geocaching. After lunch at the conference center sumajhuarmi, my friend and I headed across the street to find Every Nation, Tribe and Tongue (GC2K7FH). We were pleased to find a nice ammo can container with a TB ready to go. We signed the log, took the TB and replaced the cache as we found it. This cache was definitely placed by someone working at the Wycliffe Center. We had a great time and recommend these caches to anyone who gets the chance to visit. Stop in and visit the Wycliffe Discovery Center across the street. They have a wonderful educational center which explains the work of Wycliffe Bible Translators as they strive to translate the Bible into most of the known languages of the world. You'll be in impressed!
