|alara at Hoop Hole Hide|
After we finished up Hoop Hole Hide we rode a few miles down the road to another park and knocked out Roaring Run Iron Furnace (GC3N0K9) a very nice Earthcache and then made the mistake of doing Iron Ore Cache (GCGB1C). I said "made the mistake of..." because we really weren't planning on another major climb after finishing Hoop Hole. The terrain on this cache was only rated a 2 but in our opinion it should have been a 4!!! Another climb and we really didn't realize how much of a climb it was until we were halfway there! It was a nice hide and we are glad we did it - but WOW!!! - what a climb!!!
The Miles of Smile caches are all simple caches that could generally be described as P&G's (Park and Grabs) - but you have to spend a couple of hours on google before you head out to grab the caches. They are all puzzle caches - but don't dismay - they all are really easy puzzles. Get all your answers - correct your coordinates - an then head out to the closest MOS cache and then proceed to the next closest, then the next closest, etc and etc and etc.
|NOT A CACHE - but interesting!!!|
Believe it our not we wiped out 54 of the 55 MOS caches before being stymied by a security guard at the last one. It was only after we were sitting, waiting our number to buzz as we waited to be seated at a local Outback that we realized the last cache had been moved by the CO. Then another realization was that there were no empty rooms anywhere near Waynesboro due to several big events in town. After finishing our meals and drinks we ended up staying over 30 miles away at the only motel we could find a room for a reasonable fee.
Stay tuned for part 2 of the weekend recap - coming soon!!!
As Always - Stay Safe & Keep Caching!!!
