Over the Memorial Day weekend, Hubby and I found the 16 caches that had been made public up to that point. Because they were spread throughout the county, we did certain areas on certain days.
Then, last week, more were released, and we found enough to get our coin.
I have to say, this was probably one of the most fun projects we have undertaken as a couple. We went to each cache site together, though in a couple of instances Hubby retrieved the cache alone (I had to avoid poison ivy).
The weather was simply stunning each day we went out, and I got some fantastic pictures, not only of the cache sites, but things we saw along the way.
On our first cache, we even picked up a travelling companion- a very friendly caterpillar.
Since we started working on the trail, my love for geocaching has really taken off, and I have done a lot of caches myself while Hubby is at work. But in terms of every cache on the trail, we did it together. I could have done the last ones alone, but I really wanted this to be something we earn together.
Now I wonder what my next caching goal should be? One from every county in PA? One beginning with each letter of the alphabet? By the time the summer ends, I would love to have found 100 caches. We are at about 58 right now, so I think we can make that goal.
I am really thankful to the Armstrong County Tourist Bureau for sponsoring this. I loved revisiting some of my favorite places in the county, and finding a few new favorites as well.
