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???
