Nov 1, 2019 - First Day On The Road

After a two day delay on getting on the road, I made it to Santos, Florida, a very nice park that has a lot of trails for you mountain bikes and foot walking also. I did a few geocache's on the trails and a few munzee's. I spent only one night in this campground, would have spent more. After checking out the weather I would have about four or five days a good weather in Indiana before it turns bad , like in the teens. So I got to change my trip to fit the weather !!!!

We wanted to test drive the new truck, pulling the trailer. The new truck is a six but has more horse power then the V-8 in the 2005 F-150. It pulled great and we got better gas mileage.

This park has dirt bike trails and the Florida walking trail, also it has a free style bike ramps form tricks and a track . We arrived before the rains came in that night and...

Feb 14, 2016 - YEARLING TRAIL

I had plan to go to Santos , Florida for trail walking and some geocaching on the Florida State Trail for a few days before going over to Palatka to a bluegrass festival.

Jul 4, 2014 - Walking The Trails At Santos

We were camping at this park a few years ago , had a great time walking the trails and of course geocaching on the walking trails. We had to go back to one cache that was in a cave in the side of the limestone hillside where the people ride free style their bikes over jump ramps. We spent a good hour just watching the people do back flips and front flips from the ramps and even got to see a man jump his bike from about thirty feet off of a ramp on the ridge of the hill top to the landing area below. Some people wondered if I was nuts for...

WHAT'S NEW IN 2014

Jul 3, 2014 - OFF TO SANTOS

We go the river in Cape Coral for a swim about every day during the hot afternoon in the summer time. So why would we want to go up north? To see some trees and to get some cool weather!!! For the last few years we have been camping in the state of Florida for our fall and spring trips to Geocaching events and fun camping. So at the last minute after geocaching in April at Lake Manatee State Park for a small geocaching event, we wanted to go to a Geocaching event in Ohio and maybe visit my home town of Connersville, Indiana. So why not !!!...

Nov 22, 2013 - Trails For WALKING , TRAILS FOR HORSES AND TRAILS FOR DIRTBIKES

We are camping at Santos Campground which is next to the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway trail. This trail was built on the old cross florida barge canal that was to have barges that would cross florida from Palatka to the gulf of mexico. But with trucking and railroads they did not need a canal anymore. This land was given to the state to be used as a walking trail across florida. They have horse trails , walking trails and bike trails that crosses the state of florida. As you drive up I-75 south of Ocala , Florida you shall...
