One Puzzling Day

We had put off our trip up to New Hampshire twice. Hayden was sick the first weekend, and on the second weekend it was over 90 degrees and there were passing thunderstorms.

The day finally arrived. A group of geocachers who had solved the puzzle portion met up at 8AM on the morning of June 3 to find the physical 5/5 (hardest difficulty/terrain rating) cache in our area. I wanted it to be my 100th find.

It’s hard to believe, but I’ve found just about all of my caches with a Geomate, Jr. GPS. Perrin got it for his birthday a few years back. It’s meant to be a kid’s GPS, or at least a beginner’s. You turn it on, and it finds the 20 closest caches, that are rated 4/4 or lower.

So, I’ve begun an effort to get 17% of my finds to be puzzle caches in order to claim ache GC1NBVB, titled “17”. I’m at 3.7% now, so clearly I have some work to do. The good news is that I’ve only found 81 caches total so far, so it’s not insurmountable like it would be if I was at 3% and had found 1000 caches already.

I’ve begun work on my first ever 5/5 cache – the most difficult level of cache. It’s probably the closest one to me at that level. It starts with a multi-level puzzle and then leads you on a course up the Nashua River (or so I’ve read) to find at least 5 sites along the way.
