Adding some Counties in North Carolina

It has been almost 2 years since Nana & I found the Virginia Counties Challenge Cache.

That particular Challenge Cache required a cacher to find at least one cache
in every county of Virginia - I think it is time to try another state!!!

The question was - Maryland or North Carolina???

Either one would require some travelling.
As far as Maryland goes, we already have 8 of 24 counties found.
As far as North Carolina goes, 56 of 100 counties found.

We travel through North Carolina all the time!

We decided, at least for now, to make a short trip to try to
knock out at least a few counties in North Carolina!!! 

BEFORE our quick trip!

It was never intended to be a long trip!
But I wanted to 1) test out my sore knee and
2) see if I could get out of my geocaching slump!!!

Day 1

The trip south was great but we were amazed at how
high the water was in the rivers and lakes!!!

GC5N6Z6 - 83 NC CWGT Engagement of Windsor
although a little muddy from the high water, Nana & I made the find quickly

GC2MRGR - Aurora's Christmas Welcome
this one had us going for a minute or two but Nana spotted it!

The list I made up had 4 geocaches on it for Pamlico County.
Not sure what our problem was but we logged a DNF on 3 different caches
and then posted a note for the fourth!!!  I thought we were going to come
up blank in this county but remembered some guardrail caches in the County.
Luckily for us we were able to locate one of them to color in the county!!!

GC2PEGH - Kershaw Road E.G.G. Series # 1

GC1ADKD - Waiting for the Ferry
