Nice Walk On The Enola Low Grade Trail

Very Nice Walk Northwest River Trail At Chickies
We wanted to check out one of our cache hides so we went for a walk on on the trail it’s hidden off of. It was a great winter day for a nice walk.
Grabbed A Couple Of Geocaches In York County Today
Molly never has off on holidays but this time she did. We thought we’d go geocaching at Rocky Ridge Park in York County. We didn’t anticipate it being so busy.
Geocaching At An Old Favorite Place And Avenged An Old DNF
We don’t get the chance to get out hiking and geocaching as much as we used to or would like to but today we did. We enjoyed a nice short hike at Governor Dick and found several caches including one we had a 6 year old DNF on.
Every so often there are places that aren’t natural but turn into really nice places to visit or hike. Lake Grubb in Lancaster count is one of those spots.
WOD Then A Short Hike And A Few Caches
Today I did the run version of Monday’s WOD. I did pretty well with the running and I hate running. Later we got out for a nice short little hike and a few caches.
My Thoughts Garmin 66s
For my birthday this year I was given a Garmin 66s. I really like it. It takes the good from the Garmin 62s I had but has a better GPS chip or at least it seems to.
Saw Spotted Lantern Flies
We went to do a few geocaches today, and it turned out to be a strange day. We saw strange insects and upon our googling we found out that they were spotted lantern flies.
Mad Cow Geocaching?
The other day, the stars aligned so that we’d be able to get outside on a nice day and find a few geocaches. It was a nice walk on the Lancaster Junction Trail, and we saw some farm animals in the fields that border the trail.
Wanting To Return To Wind Cave Near Pequea
Recently I have been thinking that I’d like to return to wind cave in Pequea. That was so cool to explore the cave and see what’s changed.
I upgraded from my old Garmin 62s to the 64s. I really do like it. Signal wise, it’s not quite as good as the old trusty 60csx, but there are other features that make up for that.
Conoy White Cliffs
I found some pictures of from when we went out to Conoy White Cliffs near Maytown. I Figured I would upload them.
Rattling Run Trail Hike at Stony Valley
I came across pictures from our geocaching hike on the Rattling Run Trail at Stoney Valley. That was a great hike and awesome day on the mountain.
Remembering Thousand Steps Trail Hike
I came across some old pictures from when we did the thousand steps cache. That was a great little hike, and we hit the mountain on the perfect day to enjoy the fall foliage.
Bedford PA Coffee Pot
The Bedford Pa coffee pot was a really neat place to see. There was even a cache there.
Quecreek Mine Rescue Virtual Cache
I came across some pictures while preparing to upgrade my computer and found some from neat things we saw while geocaching. We were at the Quecreek Mine Rescue site for a virtual cache when we did a road trip and that was interesting.
DNF On The Cache But We Saw Some Pretty Spring Flowers
We got over to Chickies Rock Park for a geocache today. Sadly, the cache was a DNF for us, but we did get to see some pretty spring flowers in bloom.
Cached On A New To Us Trail Today
We got to play in the woods for my girlfriend’s day off.
Quick Cache And Woolly Bear Along The Way
We decided to go over to Cove Park for a quick cache. We saw a woolly bear caterpillar on the trail. It got me thinking how my grandparents used to think that their colors predicted the winter.
Raiders Of The Lost Cache
We finally got out to find Raiders Of The Lost Cache. It’s a highly acclaimed local cache in an area we’ve been to many times. Today we finally got back out there. The cache was worth it.
With us not really getting much geocaching in recently I haven’t paid much attention to GPSrs. I just came across the Garmin 62s and that really looks like it could be a good upgrade from the 60csx.
Delorme PN-40 Is Nice But Not For Me
I really liked the Delorme PN-40 but it wasn’t for me. Mine had a really short battery life which I returned. The next one didn’t work. A bit disappointed in that but I hope they can make them better. It could be competitive with Garmin, especially with the included maps.
Garmin Support Is Great
Garmin’s customer support is great. My 60csx was two years old and well out of the warranty. For some reason It wouldn’t acquire satellites out of nowhere. I tried some fixes I googled then called Garmin and tried some things they had me do with no luck. They sent me a replacement which didn’t ower on but then they sent me a good one.
Caching In The Coal Region
Last Saturday we were geocaching in the coal region of PA. I’ve always liked the area since I grew up going to the mountains near hazleton.
I just saw the Garmin Colorado GPS is being released. It sounds like it may have improved. I’d love to play with one in person. It looks interesting and has paperless caching features.
We attended a geocaching event over the weekend. It brought us to Strawberry Hill Nature center. That was a new place to us and great area to explore.

We went to the Hazleton area geocaching. We got some Senapes’s Pitza and I had fond memories of going to the nearby area as a kid.

We went geocaching in southeastern Lancaster County. That’s a really nice place to take in the scenery and there are some nice caches down there too!
Conestoga Trail - Suzies Hole
Last Saturday we went geocaching along the Conestoga trail near Pequea. It was my first time seeing Suzies hole, and it was a great view.
We enjoy geocaching events and always having a great time going to York for their Fourth Thursday ones.
My Thoughts Garmin 60csx
I know that it’s not new but I needed to post my thoughts on the Garmin 60csx. It’s the best GPS out there for geocaching. It just works.
Geocaching In The News
I saw a pretty good article about geocaching in the news.
We took part in the CITO at the adopt a highway in York County again today. It’s sad how much trash winds up on roadsides.
Yesterday we did a short hike and some geocaching at Governor Dick Near Mount Gretna.
We recently went geocaching in a new place to us called Kelly’s run. It’s one of the gorges along the Susquehanna river in southern Lancaster County.
