Eh, I'm killing this thing. No one is finding it, despite there being a geocaching.com cache on the property, albeit a lamo vacation cache placed by an out of towner. It was an OK virtual, but nothing special. Time to say buh-bye.

Didn't need the GPS for this one, as it was less than a mile from my house. Never payed attention to the monuments that were here either. Some more interesting stuff that I learned about here in my own "backyard". TFTC.

I've been meaning to do this one for some time now, and finally got around to it.
Urkel, Thanks for showing off the RR station, oddly enough, my sister & broter-in law used to live right down the side street from here. E-mail with the answers should be in your mailbox by the time you read this.
