’twas up here for a Wherigo and a letterbox for a challenge I am working on. Pulled in and confused myself. Had an old cache loaded that apparently is archived. Once I figured that out, I saw this was the closer letterbox than the other.

Walked over and found this without incident. All is in good order with this one. I stamped in and added the cache’s stamp to my personal logbook.

Thank you for placing this for me to find today; I appreciate it.

My first geocache

Still having absolutely no idea what my plan was when I decided to leave Trenton, I decided to seek one more geocache. I saw the letterbox on the map and decided to seek it. The side road is closed off, which made the approach a bit awkward. No worries, I acted like a local. 🙂

Upon getting to the site, I was hesitant to approach. So, I went to the window and asked if they knew anything about the geocache. No one working tonight did, but they permitted me to enter (no need to go through the fence if you walk around from the other side as I was instructed. Despite them not knowing about the geocache, they must not go back there as it is quite evident and visible if you walk back there.

The lid was loosely attached. Because of that, the logbook and the swag are damp. Even so, I was able to stamp in okay. There was no stamp in the container to stamp into my book.

Thank you for one more today; I appreciate it.

Oklahoma, Day 3
sightseeing tourist hunting day

After a busy couple days hunting geoart, we shifted gears today and took on OKC and played tourist.

The tree is impressive here. Very nice. Found the needed information without trouble and in our travels we drifted over to the final. I had heard this could be difficult to find. It did take a minute, but not oo long. I did not see a stamp in the container.

Thank you for highlighting this wonderful area; I appreciate it.

Things are going well. Still cold, but the sun was out today. Took a drive. Had a couple choices, In the end, I decided to come here. Wasn’t exactly certain where I was going until I hit Rt. 40, then I remembered the other geocache that had been here. What was the name of that one? Anyhow, pulled in and once I remembered it was a letterbox, found it right off.

Logged and stamped in from the vehicle so it was a bit more comfortable.

Always appreciate finding letterboxes; thank you for hiding this for to me to find today.

CNJC Cache to Eagle Series: Trustworthy

By the time I returned to the vehicle from the Wherigo at Rutgers, it was raining pretty steadily. During the time I drove from there to Rutgers Gardens, the rain turned to a pretty heavy downfall.

Rutgers Gardens is quite pretty. And there were plenty of folks there when I arrived. I parked in the back lot and walked forward. Someone was tending to the garden when I arrived. By the time I left, not only had the gardener left, but pretty much everyone else had too. It was wet out!

Found the letterbox without incident. It was dry and I rather liked the shelter of logging in there. The logbook is full. I found a spot on a page that I was able to stamp in with my stamp. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get a good impression with the stamp in the letterbox. The ink pad is dried out. The R stamp is stuck to the ink pad and looking to be in rather rough shape. Because the eagle has been inked in blue so much, I was unwilling to use my red ink pad. I was only able to get a very faint impression on it in blue.

I enjoy letterboxes and the location of this one was spectacular. Thank you, I appreciate it.

The time to become blind is not in the middle of a downpour. Yet, that is when I did. Sheesh!

Drove over here from Trenton. I was pretty certain I knew what I was looking for and where it would be. Nope. Then I began to wander. Nope. All I can say is I was drenched!

Back to the vehicle I went to regroup. I began reading logs. Fairly far down I got information that seemed to confirm what I was looking for. Back out I went to swim. Found it imediately. I just flat out did not see it the first time. I was there. Sigh.

I brought the geocache back to the vehicle to log. That permitted me to stamp in in a dry environment. The log is not in great shape. I signed it as it is far too small to stamp in with my stamp. I stamped in on a separate sheet of paper and left it in the geocache. In addition, one of the latches on the container has broken off.

Thank you for placing this and for me to correct my vision problems; I appreciate it.

After my last errand, I had another place to be, but I had time before I arrived. Somehow, I meandered over here.

What a lovely September afternoon! Plenty of folks out today, but the area I was in was sparsely populated. I found the geocache without issue.

The geocache is a bit weathered. The logbook has been wet. I was able to stamp in, but everything has had watered on it. I dumped the water that was in the bag. The ink pad was like an ocean. 😉

Always enjoy finding letterboxes. Thank you; I appreciate it.

What a wonderful day!

Began at #1 and finished at #60. It was at #31 that the new letterbox hybrids began. I joined up with the CITO Crew at this point to join in the fun. Walked Rocky (the mountain bike) for the next four-plus miles through good conversation, re-connecting with geocachers, meeting new cachers, putting faces to names I see in the logs, laughs, and hail. Loved this day from beginning to end.

This was a fun find. Lots of people scouring the largest geopile I have ever seen! What a great way to end the trail. I cannot thank you enough for all the fun today. I had a blast!

Thank you so very much for all the work that went in setting this up; I very much appreciate it.

What a wonderful day!

Began at #1 and finished at #60. It was at #31 that the new letterbox hybrids began. I joined up with the CITO Crew at this point to join in the fun. I was lagging behind just a bit as I got my bearings on the new coordinates. Walked Rocky (the mountain bike) for the next four-plus miles through good conversation, re-connecting with geocachers, meeting new cachers, putting faces to names I see in the logs, laughs, and hail. Loved this day from beginning to end.

Thank you so very much for all the work that went in setting this up; I very much appreciate it.
