ASP Geobash at Allegany State Park in New York, You should plan to visit. If you've been there before, it's always a great place to say hello to friends. It's our favorite event. The park is wonderful, and there are caches for everyone. We hope to see you there. Bridal Falls

No one logged finds on our caches near this painted rock we spotted in the ANF so the person who dropped the rock was most likely not a cacher, but the chosen colors made it appropriate at the start of a trail filled with our hides. The orange and yellows are flipped, but it still shows appropriate feelings for geocaching. I miss the colorful, old logo.

It seems like Geocaching's limited-time souvenir hunt is working. I've seen new logs from cachers I had assumed left the game. Hopefully they will remember how much fun geocaching is and keep hunting caches. Kudos to the Geocaching HQ team for what appears to be a winner. Is it me or does anyone else think the points for the last two souvenirs are a little strange? I was surprised to realize the last two souvenirs require 500 points instead of 400 for Pluto and 500 for the Official Space Explorer.

The Allegheny Geo Trail is now ten years old. WOW! It was the first big geotrail I published as a reviewer. The trail came to life with the dedication of cachers kcepenn. The trail spans ten counties in northwestern Pennsylvania (Warren, Crawford, Venango, Forest, McKean, Clarion, Potter, Elk, Jefferson, and Cameron).

It has been a while since I posted my test to see if plastic ammo cans from Harbor Freight were water tight. They weren't. I read an on-line review suggesting the cans could be made water tight with a bead of silicone. I beaded the cans, but didn't have time to test them in the weather. Over the holidays, I had some time away from the office and a chance to plant the two altered ammo cans outdoors. Unfortunately, the snowier weather created a nice snow pile to bury these.
