On The Trail

Touring the Mid-Atlantic Region: Washington, D.C.

July 8, 2016 // 0 Comments

We drove down to D.C. the afternoon after visiting the National Aquarium in the morning, and began the longest visit of the trip.  Because Sue and I have been here a few times, we wanted to make sure we saw some different monuments. This is the home of virtual geocaches!

Our family decided to take a road trip this summer. Sue and I visited places we hadn’t been in a while, and we took the kids to have all new experiences! First stop: Baltimore!

Cape Cod Geocaching Run

As part of our quest to find geocaches in all 351 Massachusetts towns and cities, we needed to visit the Cape. I had been looking forward to this family trip for a couple weeks. Sue and I both planned to find our 1000th cache.

Lake Pawtuckaway

To plan this trip, I had to find a lake with a good number of caches. After much searching, it seemed Lake Pawtuckaway up in Nottingham, NH fit the bill. Although it was two hours away, there were about 30 caches in the area, many of which had high terrain ratings.

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.

Ugly Cache Adventure – Part 2

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.

Ugly Cache Adventure – Part 1

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.
