After more than one failed attempt - mainly due to the ever-changing weather of the Hampton Roads area - a small group of S.L.O.G.G.E.R.S. finally managed to pull off our first adventure.
What are S.L.O.G.G.E.R.S.???? Well, through several different iterations of the acronym - we finally settled on Sexy Looking Older Geocachers Going Everywhere Relatively Slowly. Or, in other words, mature geocachers who can't move as fast as the young ones!!!
We all met up at First Landing State Park about 10AM, visited the Trail Center to check on the condition of the trails, and then headed out to see if we could locate some of the geocachers in the area.
Somewhere in the middle of our day we came upon a tree, slightly off one of the trails. Mysteriously, it appeared as someone had been doing quite a lot of work on a small out-of-the-way hideaway. A cabin in the woods? One of the ladies in the group had a small "Peanuts" figurine of Lucy, so we stopped for a few and let Lucy explore. I was told later, that even though she enjoyed the small cabin, she elected not to stay.
|Someone has been doing some remodeling!
|Lucy liked it!!!
A little over 3 miles later, after almost 3 hours, we finally made our way back to our vehicles. After resting for a few we made our way to a local eating establishment, laughed about our day, and then decided we must do this again!!!
I will try to put together another group outing in February. Hopefully we can find a weekend where the temps are not too cold. It was also suggested, that we try something in Newport News Park!!!
Stay tuned for further details
|We all had a great time!
Stay Safe & Keep Caching!!!
