Yo-ho-ho! The Captain has invited you to dine at his table this evening, lads. That means you'll be a-cookin' it for the master. So look lively! Git below decks o' this here good ship,Queen Anne's Revenge
, and busy yerselves in the galley. Be sure to boil up plenty of good salt beef for this grand repast. Unless, of course, YOU would rather be the dinner. Yar! And break out a fresh keg o' rum, lads! Grrr...
Notes to Landlubbers:

1. This was intended to be a quiet stroll on a nature trail, and technically, it is. However, the trail is overgrown, and lost entirely in some places. You'll find some of it, no doubt, and see clues to how it once appeared as you make your way through, like a few park signs and the boardwalks over Ley Creek. Be prepared to bushwhack: wear boots, longsleeves, long pants, and a hat. Depending on the season, you may need insect repellent. See the photos below so you know what to expect. The woods here are really delightful, so this adventure is definitely worth the effort that's required.

2. The cache contents follow a ship's galley theme. Please bring two items for the cache: a recipe on a 3x5 index card, and a kitchen item to exchange with the cache. The cache started out with utensils commonly found in a kitchen drawer - all are new! Do not put food or seasonings in the cache box!

3. In your log report, please include your favorite geocaching recipe, perhaps the same recipe you put in the cache box, or perhaps not. With your help, we'll have a dead man's chest full of Pirate, er, geocacher recipes in no time!

Found parts of the trail and then the cache. The creek is dry. The area around the cache is loaded with mosquitos. Took nothing, left nothing.

Now for the real recipe - it's our version of Moosewood Restaurant's Chili

Sautee - one clove garlic (or more), onions (as many as you like)in olive oil (just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. While this is sauteeing - heat 2 cans tomoato soup with tomato juice added to equal 4 cups - in micowave. When juice and soup is boiling, add 2 cups bulgar wheat. Let it sit covered. The bulgar will absorb the liquid. Add to the sautee - red chopped sweet peppers. When veggies are the texture you prefer, add at least 1 package of chili mix (more depending on your preference). Add in black beans (2 cans), two cans stewed or diced tomatos, one package of frozen corn, the bulgar, some red wine. Heat and then serve. You can also add celery and other veggies to the veggie mix.

AS logged else where...
My job brought me to the Syr. area today and being the good cacher that I am I made time to find a cache. This was not just any cache it had the potential of being my 100th find so it had to have a couple things going for it. First it needed to be not very popular so there would not be the tell tale trail leading to it and secondly it needed a decent rating. There are a few fine caches in the area that fill the bill but Blackbeard’s Galley won out. It was a nice bushy walk to the cache and I found it without incident I placed the following recipe inside, logged in and left picking up some trash on my way out.

Rum Runner (Wheelygood Version) ½ gallon

Rum 14 oz.
Blackberry Brandy 3.5 tablespoons
Crème de Banana 3.5 tablespoons
OJ 28 oz.
Grenadine 7 tablespoons
Ice 24 +/- oz.
Blend til slushy and garnish w/ a slice of lemon
