An easy geocaching weekend.

Since we were out of town last weekend, and have two more trips coming up in the next few months, Nana & I decided to slow things down a little last weekend and 1) stay in the area and 2) grab some geocaches in an area we haven't been to in quite a long time.

We didn't put a lot of caches on the list because we knew today would involve quite a lot of hiking between caches.  Once at the park we headed out only to get turned around after a 1/4 mile.  An old trail Papa knew about was no longer available so we turned around and headed "the long way" to the caches.  A little over 2 miles later we happened upon GZ for the first cache.  A few minutes later it had been found and we headed towards the next one.

We continued through the park finding one cache after another on this out-of-the-way trail.

GC14MJR - A Trail That's Not A Trail - Found
GC2F402 - CJS - First landing State Park - Found
GC1EM8G - A Trail That's Not A Trail Part Two - Found
GC4DZNT - Old Seashore - Found

Note: We did not have the Multi-cache "Sushi Bean Memorial Cache" GC20BK2 on our hit list for the day because we had seen a note saying it needed maintenance - BUT - another cacher managed to make the find on it the same day we were out there!

After getting back to the SNAP!!!-mobile we took some time to rehydrate and rest for a few before driving around to the other side of the park and attempting two more caches:

GC5561M - Stump, Stump, SMASH! - another find
GC69M0K - VSP First Landing 80th Anniversary Adventure eluded us.  We looked at GZ (where our GPS put us), we tried at the location a previous finder said it would be, and we also tried where the hint said it would be. We failed in all three places before calling it a day!!!  Would someone out there mind giving us a hint???

All in all, not a bad geocaching day!!!

Till next time!!!

Stay Safe & Keep Caching!!!
