Jul 3, 2017 - MUNZEE EVENT

Munzee is a freemium scavenger hunt game where places have to be found in the real world. The game is similar to Geocaching but uses QR code technology, in addition to device GPS location, to prove the find instead of a logbook.

Nov 10, 2011 - Okefenokee NWR Folkston, GA

We have been seeing a lot of wildlife in the refuge. Here are some photos of the animals we have seen. There were a couple of animals we did not get photos of. Renae saw a bear one day and I saw a bobcat. Just a side note, alligators grow approximately one foot per year. The two baby gators are only a foot long so they are this years young.

America - covering approximately 700 square miles of South Georgia and North Florida. The...

Nov 6, 2007 - To Folkston, Georgia

I decided to check out the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, a.k.a. Okefenokee Swamp, so I headed to Folkston, Georgia, one of three gateways to the refuge. Daisy's breakfast at Savannah was $3.089 per gallon, higher than I have paid in quite a while. I'll be staying at the Okefenokee RV Park for the next two nights. It is a Passport America park and it cost me a total of only $22.00 for the two nights. That's less than what I have paid for one night at most of the other RV parks where I've stayed on this trip. It isn't fancy by any...
