Family Lost Geocaching
Update: We’ve updated this story with new first-hand information. Please see the updated story, Family NOT lost geocaching.
Recently a family got lost while Geocaching near Myakka City, Florida. The family realized they could not find their way out of the woods and called 911 to ask for assistance. A Sheriff Department helicopter later located them and a country truck was able to drive in and rescue the seven member family.
This is a good lesson for everyone. GPS is a tool, not a fail-proof wonder gadget. These people are not the first… nor will they be the last people to become lost even though they have a GPS device.
I’m sorry the Mileys family had a bad experience Geocaching. If by chance they happen to come across this article in the next few weeks…. I’m not too far from you and would gladly offer a free GPS lesson to you and we’ll go find that cache! Just contact us.
