Weekend Recap Oct 13 & 14 (Part 2)

As I stated in Part 1, we had finished the Miles of Smiles series except for one cache.  As also stated, we had to travel southwestward almost 20 miles to find a place to stay because of all the activities in Waynesboro over the weekend.  We got on the road about 7:30 and headed back to Waynesboro and made our way to the last stop of the Miles of Smiles.  Now that we had the corrected coordinates from where the CO had moved the cache it was a quick and easy find.  This gave us a big smilie face on our geocaching map of the area.

Now to start messing up that smilie face.  There were just over 30 caches on the list and even more loaded into the GPS units.

We managed to go from cache to cache with few if any problems but did end up the day with 2 DNFs on the day.
One of the few pieces of trash we found!

After spending the day geocaching around the Waynesboro area we all came up with the same thought.  There was hardly any trash in the town.  We don't know if they held a city-wide cleanup prior to the weekend as they were having 3 major events in town.  But we had to look hard to find trash, even behind the stores.  What a real clean town.  Our second thought was - everyone is really nice here in this town.  Even the local LEO was really really nice when he pulled up to check out what we were doing.

There is quite a bit of history in Waynesboro and between the picturesque views and the really nice people - this is a definite place to come for a weekend geocaching trip!!!

Among our favorite caches on Sunday were:
OCAC-2: "Tinkling Springs" - (GC1JQ9C) - very nice location and winner of a favorite point
Sign of Life (aka Watch our for Falling Mustard) - (GC38W1K) - amusing location
Mount Olympus - (GC3JRGZ) - a nice puzzle and an amusing location
Chit....Chat....Cache - (GC3E4ZQ) - an amusing cache

Winner of the "Coveted" Nana & Papa Cache of the day Award was:
Rebel Line - (GC2AG3N) - a place with history and a very beautiful house

Overall - we would rate this very high on our Geocaching Trip List - Nana says it is her 2nd best Geocaching Trip ever - the scenery, the history, the very clean town and the very friendly people make this a town we will go back and visit.

We ended the weekend with 59 caches on Saturday and 31 on Sunday.  We climbed one mountain, one really big and steep hill, finished an entire geocaching series (Miles of Smiles) and by the time we got home - we were very very sore - but it was all worth it!!!
Nana's rocks - quite a haul!!!

As Always - Stay Safe & Keep Caching!!!

SNAP!!! - Suffolk Nana & Papa
