I was fortunate to get out of town over the Easter holiday.  I went to Philly to visit with some friends.  While I was there, my nephew and I went out a-caching and discovered 7 geocaches on late sunny afternoon (which followed a day of heavy rain), including one cache that required we wade through a dark storm tunnel under a major roadway.  That was cool!  Spooky, but cool.

 

As I waded through the dark tunnel, I tried to use my phone's video camera to light the way.  Of course, my phone decided it was time for a siesta and left me in darkness.  I had to decide, push on against my better judgement or to be safe and to keep my nephew safe

 

As a father of two and school teacher, I often make the responsible decision...whatever that means.  But as an uncle, judgement plays no part.  When I'm the uncle, consequences are nonexistent.  So I slowly and carefully made my through to the middle of the tunnel and discovered the cache.

 

Pretty exhilarating find and worth fighting the fear to achieve.  I encourage all of you gangstaz out there to push through.  You'll find it's worth it.

Hello Geocachers!  The weather is warming up.  I spent some time in Washington DC to look at cherry blossoms and get in some first of spring geocaching.  I was able to grab a couple on the ride as well.

 

I would really love to organize a CITO (Cache In Trash Out) event soon.  Perhaps over Memorial Day weekend.  Any suggestions for good locations would be welcomed.  Perhaps at the top of Mt. Beacon.  There are several caches up there, and it is a place worthy of keeping clean :-)

 

I would also like to create and plant a cache of our own.  APOK, still have an ammo can?

 

Let's get caching!

Hi! So I've been off caching my everlovin' brains out! I went to Stowe, VT earlier this month and really caught the GC bug. I would really like to start to organizing excursions with other cachers and begin to practice CITO (Cache In Trash Out). I would like to think about undertaking an expedition say on September 4 or 5. Perhaps we could explore in and around the Newburgh area.

Working on a couple options for my name:

MC ca$h
Geo-Z
GrandMaster Cache
Cachemaster Flex


And well need some sort of a clan name, a la wu-tang.

If I ever rap about packing a gat, or being strapped, I'm talking about my GPS, not a handgun.

Glad I'm attracting interest. 2 rulez I have informed: 1) your hip hop name should have a little geo-cache, if you'll pardon the pun. This to rule number 2, which is a less rule and more of a guideline. 2) this group is decicated to exposing new people to the active hobby geocaching. Please refer to geocaching.com for info and take your first steps into the exciting world of espionage and treasure hunting!

Finally, share your experiences with the rest of us gangstaz and leave questions or thougts and ideas for the gang.

Good luck!
