Re: [GPSstash] Bomb Scare In Residential Neighborhood


Most amazing place I've found a cache was the Unity location in Rockford
Illinois. There were two caches at the site. The park was a collaboration
for the furthering of world peace, and I spent 2 hours walking around and
taking photos. Sadly, I realized after I left Rockford, that there was no
flash card in the camera.

Scariest place I've searched for a cache was at the base of a former
drawbridge high above a river. The end of the actual roadway is now an
enclosed "square" with benches and fences. The bridge footings are on a
bank which is an almost sheer dropoff.. My sister and I spent quite some
time trying to find hand and foot holds to climb around the bridge. We
couldn't find the cache, and still cannot imagine any nook or cranny we
missed. (oh did I mention I don't like heights!!)


Where and when is the next Geowoodstock? Any plans for one in the southeast
(Alabama, GA, SC, FL?)

Currently I've just passed 500 caches, highest was a 4/4. I've cached in AL
AR, Fl, GA, IL, IA, IN, PA, WI, SD, MD, MI, MO, TN. I also have a
benchmark from Mt Wilson, CA. I need two more letters for the Alabama
Alphabet Challenge (cache names), and I think 4 for the placed by alphabet
challenge. (I have a few more to find for the Florida challenges. )

Well,
We could start a couple threads on positive things such as milestones,
amazing places we have found while caching or one of my favorite topics
Geowoodstock IX. (Yep, on the committee for that)

Does anything positive about Geocaching get posted on this group? All I ever
see
is bomb scares.
