Another Item Crossed off our Geocaching Bucket List (5 of 5) and other stuff...

Nana and I took a geocaching trip in early April traveling
around Virginia with hopes of completing several items
on our Geocaching Bucket List.

By the end of our trip, we had completed
five, yes FIVE, of those items.
And  Yes!, we had all sorts of fun
doing them.

1)  Buffalo Mountain Geocaches
2) Blocks 72 & 64  of the Virginia Deforme
3) Visit Old City Cemetery in Lynchburg
4) Find the Virginia Delorme Challenge Geocache
5) Find the Geocaches for both the Virginia Independent City
and the Virginia County Challenges

This is the last story of our April trip - item #5!

#5 - Find the Geocaches for both the Virginia
Independent City and the Virginia
County Challenges

It was over a year ago when Nana & I completed the requirements for both
the Virginia Independent City Challenge Cache (GC244VZ) and the Virginia County Challenge Cache (GC244RF).  We submitted our caches to the CO and received
both corrected coordinates.  The only thing left to do was go find the cache.
We passed by (within a few miles) both caches several times throughout that
year and a half - but were in time crunch situations each time.  

After we finished up in Lynchburg, we slowly made our way down to
Lawrenceville, VA.  We had visited this park before which was when we first
learned of the two challenges.

We were surprised to find out both caches were a very short distance from
the parking area which allowed us to spend about half the time we had allotted
to make both finds and return to the SNAP!!!-mobile.

The last item (for this trip) was marked off our Geocaching Bucket List!!!
