A nice walk down the tracks. The view from the top is beautiful. Listen for the peepers near the pond.


Piece of the Puzzle #4, “Schunemunk South View”
The first cache in this series is the weird NJ cache located on the Island on Beaver Dam Lake Piece of the Puzzle #1

The second one is at Lasser park Piece of the Puzzle #2


The third is at Maple Drive Piece of the Puzzle #3

This is a series because you have to find all five caches in order to ‘win’ the prize. I keep finding these cleared areas near the house and am enjoying all the exploring I get to do. This is a subtle beauty and the hike is not too long or difficult. Follow this link to read about the Schunemunks.


Parking entrance at n41 26.138, w074 06.216 park at the top in the lot. After parking you can enter the field at either n41 26.254, w074 06.102 or near n41 26.420, w074 06.154

The initial contents are a pencil and log book. Incense and stone to burn it on , Misc. First Aid supplies, an AC/DC voltage checker, This book is “the Tao of Pooh”. Also in this cache is a set of 6 cabinet hinges.

The rules:

In each cache is a ‘passphrase’. copy it exactly as it is printed on the card in the log book.
Email me the list of all five ‘passphrases’ and the winner will receive the coordinates to find the Locking Baldwin Brass lever handle set.
extra credit can be earned by photographing yourself with a 15 lb bag of garbage you’ve collected on the trails. (remember, cache in trash out?). You can earn One ‘passphrase credit per bag of garbage collected. Feel free to Collect all the trash you can but I have to set a Two credit maximum.
This isn’t a regulated game of chance so I will award the ‘prize’ the person or team I decide has met the requirements. All decisions are final.
Persons perceived to be whining, sniveling, complaining or otherwise being a nuisance will be disqualified at my discretion.
Enjoy! Kernbob

Orange/Putnam cache dash! Second stop of the morning. Extremely easy navigation as I just followed the tracks and then the edge of the field. The trick, of course, was to figure out where to cross the barbed wire fence. By the way, isn't that a sign we're not supposed to go in there? I used the second set of coordinates and there was indeed a place where the fence was squished down really low and there was a path going across. Got to the area and found yet another private property sign. Hope we're not breaking too many laws this morning. Wasn't too hard to find the cache though. All I had to do was look at this obvious spot... no, this obvious spot... ok, this one's got to be it. Swapped out a Where's George (http://www.wheresgeorge.com) dollar bill. Thanks.
