First Cache on the Moon

By: Team Turkalina Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Large

Interesting what you find out in the woods. I picked a way that involved minimal bushwhacking. No problem finding it. Thanks!

Mountain Laurel

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I found the cache right away using the coordinates that trowel32 posted. Thanks!

Rockin in Double Trouble

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

This one made for a quick stop. I wonder if anyone has made a detailed trail map of this park. I sure could have used one today to minimize my backtracking. Thanks!

The Thirst Quencher Part 4(the final chapter )

By: friendly finder Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

I avoided the prickers as best I could and homed in on this one pretty quickly. Thanks!

Pheobe's GeoDog Cache

By: Pheobe the Pug Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

Lots of dogs were out on the trail today with their owners. I don't think there were any unhappy dogs. It was a great day to be outdoors. Thanks!

Blueberry Hill

By: Tracy7781 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

It was the wrong season for blueberries. There was some evidence that folks have been back here enjoying themselves. Thanks!

Frog Pond

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

I didn't understand the cache name or the hint, but came across it after a short search. Thanks!

Pretty In Pink (Camo)

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

The woods looks almost the same in all directions when you get back here. It's nice to have a GPSr. Thanks!

Where are we!?

By: Tracy7781 Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 4.5 Container: Micro

Like the CO said, it's in plain sight, but it does have a color that blends well with its surroundings. My GPSr was reading about 20 feet when I found it.

Red With Envy

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

I made this one the last of the day. It was about 1 pm, and I was ready to take it easy and have some lunch. Thanks!

Princess in the Pines

By: Tracy7781 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

My GPSr seemed a little uncertain here, so I had to search a bit up and down the trail, but I finally found the first stage. The first thing I found at the second stage was a ripped pair of boxer shorts, but I eventually backtracked a little and found the cache. Thanks!

Girlie Girl

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

In California, I would have used my hiking stick to scare away any rattlesnakes, but here, I just reached under and pulled out the cache. Thanks!

Get Over Your Fear

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

It's not fear, it is just common sense in not wanting to be scratched or have wet feet. After the stream jump, the find was a piece of cake. Thanks!

Heritage

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I drove up to it in my rental car. It hasn't rained in the last few days and the road was relatively passable. Thanks!

Natural Shelter

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I pulled over to the side of the dirt road and hiked over to grab this one. Thankfully, there was no other traffic on the road this morning.

Park N Grab

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I was heading back to my car, and made a quick find. Thanks!

They're Grrrrrrrreat

By: Tracy7781 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Other

It had warmed up pretty nicely by now and was a great day for hiking. I found this at the first spot I suspected and quickly signed. Thanks!

Cedar Monkey

By: Tracy7781 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Other

The revised coordinates worked well for me. No problems finding the monkey. Thanks!

Down the road a piece

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I hiked down the road a piece for this one. The cache density is what attracted me to this area. When you're from out of state, geocaches can be a good tour guide, or a schizophrenic one. Thanks!

Gimmie A Sign

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

The sign has definitely been there a while. Thanks!

The Nest

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

The crazy nest-looking thing is probably just a odd growth on the tree. Found the cache quickly in its little next. Thanks!

No Bones About It II

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

Interesting idea for a multi. Hiking off trail is nothing like California. Besides being against park rules, you would be met with poison oak everywhere. Thanks!

Field Of Dreams

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I parked at the gate and made the short hike over. The location seemed somewhat familiar from my visit a few years ago, but I haven't logged this one before. Thanks!

Cherry Bomb

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

Good thing this is way out in the woods. It would definitely be the wrong sort of thing to be found by a non-cacher. Thanks!

I went Down to the Crossroads

By: Tracy7781 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

I hiked in from the back gate for this one. No problems spotting it. Thanks!

The roof

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I wonder if the wood all rotted away, leaving mostly shingles. Thanks!

The Gate #2 (Or at least it used to be)

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

It was a bit nippy this morning. My car thermometer read 41 degrees, and I wondered if I would wish for than my sweatshirt. It was sunny, and it warmed right up. Thanks for the waypoint. The log was jammed in, but I worked it out and hopefully will be easier for the next cacher.

Ribbit!!

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Other

Found the little critter. I noticed that another group of cachers preceded me here today. Thanks!

EFBP #9

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

The bike path traffic was light enough to not be a problem when stopping for a cache. Thanks!

Pine Tunnel

By: Park Ranger Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I happened to head straight for this one, and found it before I had a chance to read the hint. Thanks!

Woolly Bear Blast Furnace

By: stinkersmellcat Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

I was hiking the Edgar Felix Bike Path, and decided to hike over to the Village. I believe I was here a few years ago. The blast furnace looked familiar. Thanks!

B is for Musclemusher

By: jo.b & bernsa Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

This was the furthest extent of my hike today. I decided it was time to turn around and not go for "C". Thanks!

EFBP #5

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I found a rectangular hunk of concrete at GZ in the ivy and thought I had found the cache, but a little investigation and searching brought me to the cache. Thanks!

EFBT -2

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I was delayed here by a work phone call, then a GPSr that took me to the wrong side of the trail. I finally found the container with the missing cap. Thanks!

EFBP #8

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

A path with this many caches is bound to draw some attention. It drew mine, and I'm from California. Thanks!

"HIKERS AND BIKERS "

By: bumperpants Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

This definitely was different from the host of other caches along here. It took a couple minutes, but eventually I happened on to it. Thanks!

Another brick in the wall

By: briangnj Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I looked for this on the way up the trail, then tried again on the way back. I had some success about 70 feet from GZ, 140 feet from my first try. Thanks!

EFBT -1

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

My GPSr was leading me to the wrong side of the trail, but the hint put me back on track. Thanks!

EFBP #7

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I missed this one on the way up the trail, but found it on the opposite side of the trail on my way back. Thanks!

EFBP #4

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I took a picture of the neat looking farm with the big house. I wonder what a place like this would cost? Thanks!

EFBP #3

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Good coordinates for this one. I found it before I had a chance to read the hint. Thanks!

EFBT-3

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Found this one after a short search on the wrong side of the trail again. Thanks!

EFBP #10

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

The caches so far were pretty routine. I like routine, though. I would rather be hiking than searching. Thanks!

EFBT-4

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I missed this on way up the trail, and found it pretty quickly on the opposite side of the trail on my way back. Thanks!

A is for Ericles

By: jo.b & bernsa Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I wandered around here, then headed on to "B". On my way back, I looked again, and went straight to it. It was a wonder that I missed it before. Thanks!

EFBP #12

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I am on a business trip from CA, but I was taking the day off. This a great hiking day, and quite a nice trail, although rather straight. Thanks!

EFBP #6

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I skipped a couple before this one. Rather, I looked for a little while and decided to move on and look for them on the way back. I wanted to make it to Allair and I wouldn't at this rate. No bottom on the cache. Maybe someone didn't rotate it properly. Thanks!

" ALLENWOOD STATION ! "

By: bumperpants Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Other

I skipped this one on my way up the trail because of trail traffic. On my way back, I bought a sandwich at the Allenwood General Store. I started eating at a nearby bench and wandered around and found the cache with plenty of sandwich left. Thanks!

EFBP #1

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Right after I signed the log, SSBN 654 came up the path from the opposite direction, so I just handed him the cache. He was also out getting his exercise today. Thanks!

Old Man River

By: Tracy7781 Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I was hiking the Edgar Felix Bike Path, and saw four caches in a line. I hiked through the Village to have a look. It soon became obvious that the caches were not along a single trail. I hiked out through the bog and grabbed this one. Thanks!

Rock and Roll

By: briangnj Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I looked around a bit, examined the nearby benchmark and the cache became obvious. Thanks!

EFBP #13

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I didn't get started until about 10 am because of trouble with my Garmin 62s. It refused to show any geocaches, even though I had loaded a PQ and looked at it yesterday. I used Garmin's WebUpdater and updated to the latest version, and all the caches came back. I started my hike toward Allair about here. Thanks!

EFBP #11

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I took a picture along here to e-mail back to Mrs. Bytemobile. The fall colors were pretty nice. Thanks!

Fungus Among Us

By: Creaky Cachers Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

This one was a bit of a bushwhack. The cache was well hidden by leaves, but luckily I happened upon it after a search. Thanks!

Driving Range

By: The Grounds Keeper Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

SSBN 654 just came from here and said that I would like it. It took a couple minutes for me to home in on it, but it turned out to be quite unique. Thanks!

EFBP #2

By: jo.b Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

It looks like a good day to be golfing as well as caching. My sons are both golfers, but I never took it up seriously. Thanks!
