View With A Bridge

4:30 pm - When leaving from the parking area, we decided to go around the "loop" clockwise. It wasn't until we got here that we realized it wasn't a loop at all and we had a long walk back around ahead of us. Oh well, it was good to be outside. Thanks!

Three Towers

4:16 pm - This place is a lot further away than it looks from parking! We had an nice walk though. Thanks for the cache!

Marsh Catwalk

3:54 pm - We've always wanted to explore some of these, but they always seem to be off-limits. The walk down this long catwalk was fun. The cache was a bit of a challenge too! Thanks!

Ask Mr Whyte

3:49 pm - Solved the puzzle last night and got some coordinates that looked reasonable and matched the checksum. When we got there they didn't look right. We did see a much more likely spot a ways away though, so we stopped there later. Did a thorough search but found nothing. The place did get a major paint job recently, so perhaps it was removed then? I hope to try again another day.

Ocean View Park

3:28 pm - Super-quick one for me. Back to the pumpkin festival traffic!

The End Of The Trail

3:02 pm - This was a nice walk up here even while dodging flying golf balls. We almost gave up on searching for the cache, but found it in a break between golfers. The coordinates were very good. TNLN. Thanks!

A Railroad Ran Through It

2:24 pm - We looked for this one on our way down to the beach and came up empty. On the walk down I had the chance to read up on the old logs and think about it some more.

On the way back I looked for several minutes before I found the tiny container. I guess it just wasn't what I was looking for. Thanks!

Cowell Ranch Beach

1:58 pm - Searched the only place it could be here that matched the hint and found no sign of it. Time I check up on it I think.

Whimsical Wonders (HMB)

1:35 pm - When we arrived, we found the cache occupied. We waited in the car for a bit and wondered what was taking them so long. We read the description and then understood. When they finished, I walked over and asked them how it came out. It was the Carmirezs' first cache and I told them it was a good one.

We drew a tomato man with peas for arms and legs and a pumpkin hat. Too many crafty things at the pumpkin festival I guess. TNLN. Thanks for the repeat visit to this relocated cache!

Now that was a disturbing email subject line:

"WeBeDnD temporarily disabled Boulter (Disabled)"

Ouch! Who you calling disabled?

Restown Cache

2:54 pm - I had some lunch with the Pawtuxent Gang before my flight home and I had one requirement - find one cache in VA so I could add it to the list of states I've cached in. We stopped in Reston Town Center and I wasn't surprised to find a cache 500 feet away! We took the stairs up and searched the wrong level at first. Really interesting container. TNLN. Thanks!

1:14 pm - We've done a few caches around here near this beautiful lighthouse. Thanks for the return visit.

So We Will Remember Them

12:26 pm - This place gives me chills. I don't think I've been here since I was a kid. Reading these logs is incredible. Thank you.
Posted by jeff at 12:26 PM

Well I declare....

12:17 pm - I found the required info quickly after circumnavigating the pool. As I was leaving I saw some other cachers reading the desciption. I decided not to disturb them and instead continued on to other caches. Thanks!

Tiny Dinos

12:12 pm - This was my favorite cache of the day. I had never explored this area before. Good camo. TNLN. Thanks!

Last stop for a weary traveler

12:07 am - There are two of these and I found the southern one first. I don't think this memorial was here last time I visited DC. Thanks for the stop.

Out of the Swamp

11:55 am - Hey, that's pretty interesting. It sure would have been interesting to live here back then. Thanks.

Mt. Hope Cemetery

11:22 am - While MotorBug tried to brute force this one, I found the actual coordinates. Cheaters never win! TNLN. Thanks!

a Wood Chuck's Paradise

5:19 pm - I had to take a picture of myself with my phone but it came out ok. Thanks for the stop.

Expanse of Freedom

5:05 pm - I had a nice walk out to here during a break in my conference. It's certainly hard to keep track of all the parks around here. Thanks.

General of the Armies

5:04 pm - It's refreshing to be in a place with so much history. Thanks for the tour stop.
Posted by jeff at 05:04 PM

Look west old man

2:33 pm - I can't say I remember this guy, but he must have done something great to get a statue erected for him. Thanks!

Mile Zero

2:22 pm - Lots of tourists here taking pictures ; it was tough to squeeze in to read the inscription. Cool marker, thanks!

Phoenix Arisen

9:26 am - I had a meeting in Berkeley this morning, so on the way I went here to pick up my lanyard pen that I dropped on Angel Island. 1Rocky very kindly picked it up and put it here for me. Thanks a bunch. Very informative display as well. Thanks!

The Rite Stuff

2:18 pm - I had to evade blonde muggles on either side of me, but found the cache ok. TNLN. Thanks.
Posted by jeff at 02:18 PM


2:08 pm - DNF. I would have had to reach under a couple of people to grab it so I decided to leave it for another time.
Posted by jeff at 02:08 PM

C is for cookie, and that's good enough for me.

2:00 pm - Quick find here even though it wasn't where I expected it to be. Thanks!
Posted by jeff at 02:00 PM

Ivy League

1:51 pm - DNF. Thought I understood the hint, but we couldn't find it anywhere near there. I did discover a previously unknown hiding spot though.
Posted by jeff at 01:51 PM

Water Garden

1:40 pm - This was Ellie's first cache! I've walked by here dozens of times, so it was strange to suddenly find a cache at this busy spot. Hope it lasts!

With Cooperation Comes Opportunity

1:29 pm - Got lucky and found it in the first place I looked/felt. Hitsman had never seen one this small before. Thanks.
