Today Pat and I went on another of our “geocaching adventures.” I use quotes because the caches we were looking for were not very hard to get to. But it was 100 times more fun traipsing through the woods looking for the caches than just walking down the American Tobacco Trail. In any case, it was a beautiful day for a walk in the woods. We found three caches, a geodetic marker, and knocked down a a dead tree. Not bad for an afternoon!
We found these three caches from Geocache.com:
Here’s a map of their locations with the pictures taken at each of those locations:
At the end of my rope
At this site, the coordinates take you to this ammo box. Pat spotted the ammo box and inside there is a rope that you are supposed to attach to a nearby iron pipe. In theory the log book is hidden somewhere in the arc of the rope, but we never found it.
This one we found thanks to Pat’s sharp eyes. It was a steel cricket with a small metal case attached to it. Thankfully we had remembered to bring pens with us so we can sign the log.
This one was about 0.6 miles off the American Tobacco Trail. But there was a trail through the woods that the corps of engineers had blazed to mark some sort of boundary. So it wasn’t too hard to find but we still had to hike through the woods and underbrush a bit to get to it. I spotted this one first.
We found this geodetic marker on the way to the last cache. I believe the blazed markers were identifying a game hunting area, but not sure.
