Note 19 Apr 2008    Hornby Lodge: Frontier Mansion  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

I went to the coordinates posted on this Navicache page and didn't find any cache. It appears to have been changed?? But it was a nice walk and a great view from the other side of the river than I was at earlier in the afternoon.

I found it! 19 Apr 2008    Cole's Cliff  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

I found the first part before I drove across the street to the area of the orienteering event. I came back after finished the orienteering and went sytraight to the cache itself, since I had trouble earlier with the GPS staying along the cliff trail. I found the cache container, but couldn't get it open to sign the log. Thanks for the cache.

Note 07 Mar 2008    Bottoms Up  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

This cache seems to no longer be available. I asked for the mug and was told that they didn't have it, but they remembered something like that a few years ago. I had a nice lunch special anyway..but now wonder where the mug would have taken me if it still existed!

I found it! 01 Apr 2007    Distance Caching 101  ( Difficulty: 4.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

This was a great cache. I started it yesterday, but only found one answer. So I got a bit more focused today in my Internet searches, and finally found all the rest of the answers. It was a bit addictive, trying to find the answers. I really like the final object.

I found it! 30 Mar 2007    It's HUGE!  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

This is a favorite bridge of mine, though I haven't driven by in a while. I'm always amazed by its size. This was one of the few NE PA places I brought my sister and her family to when they visited PA. Thanks for the cache.

I found it! 24 Mar 2007    webcam race 2007 (Hoover-Dam)  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Got it this time! A nice white convertible with the top down!
Got another one with a closer view, a silver convertible with the top down!

I found it! 25 Feb 2007    The Last Templar  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Nice virtual cache. I'm currently reading Foucault's Pendulum, a definite satire.

Note 17 Feb 2007    Halfway There/Middle Fork  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 4.5 )

This cache is being archieved since it was removed by the NPS, since it is in a wilderness area. If you get a chance to raft the Middle Fork of the Salmon River, you should do it!

I couldn 06 Jan 2006    Exo Libris  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Everytime I would walk away to get enough satellites to get the signal, I'd then walk back towards the library and lose it. I never felt like I knew exactly where to go, so I didn't attempt to find the cache itself. Maybe another time....

I found it! 28 Dec 2005    Avondale Anthracite Disaster  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

I've read a lot about this disaster. Thanks for putting this on the web page.

I found it! 21 Oct 2005    pirates booty  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Went with Lodestone to find. Owner wasn't there - sorry to miss you. This was fun. This would be a great Halloween night cache! Thanks for the cache.

I found it! 09 Aug 2005    2002 Winter Olympics  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

I went with BotanicalLady and Beth, but this was a special cache for me because I was one of the AT&T runners carrying the Olympic Torch for one of the weeks as it was carried across the country to Los Angeles for the Summer 1984 Games. Thanks for getting me here while I'm at a meeting in SLC.

I found it! 06 Aug 2005    Little Arch  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1.5 )

This is a great park. I walked the loop and also went to find Geode Cache during the walk. What a great little arch. Thanks for the cache.

I found it! 06 Aug 2005    Geode Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I parked at a public parking place so I could do this cache and Little Arch during a brief visit to the area. Very interesting area for the geocache. TNLN. Thanks for the cache.

I found it! 03 Aug 2005    Not Butch  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 4 )

I found stage 1 yesterday and decided to wait until today to attempt stage 2. Usually I do fine on the approach to a cache, but have problems at the actual location. This cache is different! I kept getting so close (yet so far) and either not liking the approach I was seeing or getting stuck with no approach and having to backtrack. Finally I got to the cache area and easily found the cache. I spend a lot less time getting back to the trail than I did getting to the cache. I did end up being FTF. TNLN. Thanks for the cache and scramble.

I found it! 17 Dec 2004    Broad Lawns and Narrow Minds  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Thought I was the first to find, but I see from prior log that I was first to find a new dry log! Lots of people around at the time I walked up to the area from taking the L while on a train layover for a few hours in Chicago. Played the tourist bit, but I'm not sure I got it back exactly the way it was when I found it. The next cacher may want to take a small magnet to help with the find, or maybe the owner can get it exactly the way it needs to be---sorry. Really nice area, I walked around a few blocks before I needed to head back downtown. Thanks for the cache which got me out here.

Note 16 Dec 2004    Miles Of Mules - LOCATIONLESS CACHE  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I found 5 painted cows in a room in the Harrisburg Train Station. I'm not sure whether they came from Harrisburg originally or not, since I couldn't find any information posted about them. You can see them from inside the station or from outside looking through the windows. Coordinates are:
N 40 degrees 15.721 W 76 degrees 52.695

I found it! 03 Aug 2004    The Happy Hoppy Webcam Cache  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Found this webcam twice with BotanicalLady and Scousebird when we were nearby for a multi-day meeting. The food and the beer were great!

I found it! 08 Jul 2004    Trusty's Out of this World Cache  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

I was pretty sure what this was when I read the cache page, since this is one of my favorite things to see when I drive on this road. I don't know how long it's been there - as long as I've lived in the area (16 years)! More has been added since the last time I drove by. Thanks for making this a cache Trusty!

I found it! 26 Jun 2004    The Stack  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 4.5 )

Wow!! What an overgrown climb to the cache! This is the most overgrown hike to a cache I've ever done! It took me a LONG time to find the cache, since my GPS signals were erratic. When I finally found the cache my GPS said it was 25' away (with 41' accuracy). My GPS kept taking me NE of where the cache actually is. Don't think I'll do this one again for "fun" - too many ferns and pricker bushes and logged areas! But thanks for putting it there anyway.

I couldn 06 Jun 2004    backpack  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

This cache is no longer here. There has been construction in the area and I checked and no cache anymore.

I found it! 30 May 2004    Hills Creek Park Cache I  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

Nice to meet other cachers, Michey cacher and daughter, just coming from the cache! What are the odds of that in a remote park! I've always liked this park which has very nice cabins. Mosquitos around so I quicked signed log. TNLN. Thanks for the cache.

I found it! 29 May 2004    MARKET STREET MICRO  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Nice micro - faked looking at map of Corning while checking out places. Really nice street. We ate lunch and had the local brew. Thanks for the cache.

I found it! 29 May 2004    Erwin Hollow Overlook  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 3 )

Last cache I did today on geocaching trip to the Corning area. This one was the most difficult physically - up hill - and after lunch. And the mosquitos were guarding the cache, I quickly logged and got out of there! I left some foreign coin, but I don't remember which country. Thanks for a hike in a nice area.

I found it! 28 May 2004    Great Trojan Crypto Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 2 )

This cache was so much fun and I got to see so much of Troy. I was here for 2 days for a workshop, so I started getting some of the locations the first morning. After a couple I was pretty sure I knew the keyword, but the locations I had visited were so interesting, I decided to try to visit all of them so I could see more of Troy. I got most of the rest that evening and decrypted the clue. The next morning before the workshop I went to find the cache (and I did find the rest of the locations that afternoon before I left Troy). I took a I Love NY pin and left a Yuengling bottle opener. Thanks soooo much for this cache.

I found it! 28 May 2004    Uncle Sam Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

I found this the afternoon after my workshop was over on a visit to Troy. I didn't know about this IP until I got into Troy a couple of evenings before, so I bought a postcard to put into the cache in keeping with the theme. Thanks for getting me into such an interesting area. I did get out the back gates, but there was a chain across that gate within the next half hour or so after I left.

I found it! 28 May 2004    Hockey Legs  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2 )

I did this one as my last one in the Troy area before I left to do more geocaching west and then go home. I did do some driving since I needed to get to Corning. I almost gave up on the 2nd stage since my GPS was bouncing around a lot, but I kept looking at likely hiding spots farther and farther until I found it. Thanks so much for all the hints! Didn't have any hockey stuff, so TNLN. Thanks for all your caches in Troy.

I found it! 17 May 2004    Pennsylvania History Markers  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1.5 )

N 40 57.952 W 76 49.604
This Pennsylvania Historic Marker is for the still standing, but not used Sodom Schoolhouse. It was a 1 room schoolhouse used from 1839-1915 and is a hexagonal structure made of limestone from the area. It's on highway 45 east of Lewisburg and there is a small parking area next to the structure.

I found it! 13 May 2004    Miles Of Mules - LOCATIONLESS CACHE  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I really enjoyed these mules when they were on display in Wilkes-Barre and Scranton and NE PA before they were auctioned off. At least one of them is still in Wilkes-Barre in front of the Osterhout Free Library at 71 S. Franklin St. This mule's name is "Working Mule" with paintings on it by Joan Schooley of mules working in the coal mines - very appropriate to NE PA. GPS coordinates are N 41 14.746 W 75 53.052.

I found it! 04 May 2004    Whitehall Parkway  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

I was in Allentown for a meeting and decided to take a different way home which would take me past this cache. The container is the first ammo can I've ever found that was wet inside! I tried to clean out some of the wet gunk (and food) with leaves, but couldn't get it all out. Needs some TLC. TNLN. Thanks for the walk around an interesting area - I took some extra time to explore after I found the cache.

I found it! 17 Apr 2004    Trash & Trout in PA 2004  ( Difficulty: 4    Terrain: 2 )

What a great event! We picked up SOOOO much trash in the park. I can't believe what people throw away - especially in the campground area where there are so many trash cans! And the offer of the group campsite for us was great. It was a fun evening - s'mores, and kids who love fires! Thanks PSUPaul and IMLost for doing all the organization work on this and getting us the gloves and trash bags and donuts and drinks and hot dogs, etc.

I found it! 16 Apr 2004    Natures Way and Then Some  ( Difficulty: 3.5    Terrain: 2 )

I wasn't the one who actually found the cache - that honor goes to one of TrustyLizard's kids! In fact I was one of a pretty good size group that got talked into doing this as a night cache. We were all camping the night before the Trash & Trout in PA event and got to this one just before midnight. All the kids in the group were leading the way and we bushwacked the entire way! And of course none of the kids were carrying the GPS units, so it was interesting. Thanks for placing this so I'd get my second night cache (and the first was on trails!). Took nothing, left an Alaska magnet.

I found it! 15 Apr 2004    Compass Course 101  ( Difficulty: 4    Terrain: 2 )

It was quite nice to be able to get a thumbs up on this one. I was at the park 6 times getting this one done! After not finding part 1 after 2 visits, I decided to see who else hadn't gotten it and saw my webcam partner (he gets to save my pic when I go traveling and find a webcam!), Mike Burnside, was also frustrated. So we teamed up. I really don't think I could have done this one without Mike and without some more hints from IMLost. Part 1 was very ingeneous and very frustrating for me. Part 2 was less frustrating, but still caused me some problems. At least I didn't have trouble with Part 3 and with figuring out what to do to find the cache. I also used an orienteering map of the park - which helped me to find the cache. Thanks (I think!) for the cache. I took a bicycle chain keychain for a bicycling friend, and left a toy kalaidoscope.

I found it! 09 Mar 2004    Observatory Quest  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

The York Observatory in York, England was built by the Yorkshire Philosophical Society following the inaugural meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in 1831. It has an earlier rotating roof designed by John Smeaton who also designed the Eddystone Lighthouse. The observatory housed what was for many years the largest refracting telescope in the world designed and built by Thomas Cook of York, whose firm also built the Greenwich transit instrument. It was restored and refitted to mark the British Association's 150th anniversary meeting in York in 1981 and was officially opened by its President, HRH the Duke of Kent. A plaque on the building gives the lat and log as 53 degrees 57 min 40 sec N and 1 degree 5 min 12 sec W. My GPS showed N 58 57.686 W 1 5.282.

I couldn 29 Feb 2004    Compass Course 101  ( Difficulty: 4    Terrain: 2 )

Add me to the "didn't find part 1" group! After reading some of the logs, I figured this was going to be a multi-day cache in addition to a multi-stage cache! Email on the way begging for a hint! I think I passed a geocaching family when I was on the way out - a vehicle looked like some sort of geo sticker on it as I drove off.

I found it! 29 Feb 2004    Old Iron  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

I knew where the location was since I've volunteered for the trail ever since it was started. I even checked it out for a possible cache site, but got too busy to do one there - so thanks for doing such a nice cache. I'm gaining more experience with micros so this one actually wasn't hard for me. I had wanted a good walk this morning, so I did the entire 2.2 mile trail from Carverton Rd to Perry St and then back 2.2 miles again.

I found it! 13 Jul 2003    Mullen's View  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3.5 )

What a great set of views on the way up! I must confess that I didn't do the suggested climb. I bypassed some of it. There was enough to do from the 1st cache to the final cache location. There were campers and vehicles in the reservoir area when I walked in there in the morning. As I kept taking breaks climbing, I was saying to myself that I was looking at the views, which kept getting better and better, and picking some of the low bush blueberries. When I got to the top I realized that I would have liked to stay there all day, but I had to get back to a committment that afternoon. The view is so wonderful and the place so peaceful. Thanks so much for putting a cache there (I said that after the climb!). I found an easier way back down. I forget what I took, but I left an Alaskan salmon magnet and a new pen. I also took out a plastic grocery bag of recyclables.

I found it! 07 May 2003    Willya Lookit the Caboose on THAT One!  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

I've never seen a caboose like that one before! Nice site. I drove down from Atsion and through the town of Hammonton and saw all the nice houses.

I found it! 11 Nov 2002    Whispering Pines  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

Found it and it was a quick one since I wanted to get out of the park before the gates closed at sunset - darn this non-daylight savings time! In fact I ran down the hill and was the next to last car out of the park. The bushes just before you get into the pines are a great place for seeing birds in the Spring. I took a different set of trails (some of them older and unmarked) to get to the cache area more quickly. It was nice to meet Team Geo-Remdation at the cars! I've figured out how to meet geocachers now, go to new caches! I took a hand warmer and left a folded up trash bag and an Alaska pin. Thanks for another cache in the park.

I found it! 11 Oct 2002    ANDREA'S CHARM  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I checked with Rocky to be sure I had a "find" since the cache is gone and this is now a virtual cache.
It was a rainy day and I had business in Halstead, so Lodestone and I decided to drive up to Binghamton to eat at Cracker Barrel (he told me the TV weather that morning showed no rain in Binghamton!)
This is the only cache I've ever walked to with an umbrella! It was a pretty walk though we both lost the GPS signal and had to pace the last .1 mi to the cache site. Thanks for the hike in the glen!

I found it! 04 Aug 2002    backpack  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

I was in Boise for a meeting for a few days and decided to find caches I could walk to.
I looked a bit before I figured out how to find the cache. Nice urban cache!
Took nothing, left a Danish krone.

I found it! 21 May 2002    JQ007-Ricketts Glen  ( Difficulty: 4    Terrain: 4 )

Wow! Now I know what a 4/4 geocache means! Good rating. Hawken and I went to Stage 1 and 2 after doing the Mountain Spring Lake Siding cache. We weren't too sure we were going to do Stage 3 today, but finally decided to do it. We got to the cache around 7:30 PM. Cache is in good shape (as are Stage 1 and 2). I took the lock and left a ceramic chess piece and a good mystery book.
