1:00 PM to Meet at Twin Lake*
Kayaking & Geocaching on Twin Lakes


2 hour trip on Twin Lakes kayaking and geocaching with Sheree and Richard Lincoln of BrassWind Boat Rental in Indian River. We will paddle out to the islands to look for geocaches in the water and along the shore. There are at least 2 listed on We will use the GPS on our phones or any other hand held device to help find the hidden “treasures” on the island.  If you bring your own device you will need a waterproof bag for it. Also you may bring an item to trade.  When you find a Geo Cache there will be items in it for trading, and a log to sign. One of the Geo Caches on Twin Lakes is set up for trading fishing lures only. Could be fun.  Pick one out of your old tackle box or at the sporting goods store.  You should trade for something of equal or lesser value. Beginners welcome.
