"When you go to hide a cache, think of the reason you are bringing people to that spot.
If the only reason is for the cache, then find a better spot."

9 June 2007 #3000 Dance Hall Hill

We expected a bit more from #3000 since it was a terrain three cache, but it was in Oil Creek State Park. It was a perfect day. We all had a good time including the dogs being silly around the cache site. The history of the area was interesting. It is always surprising to see traces of past lives that have come and gone. Not much beyond the old pole supports remained of this old dance hall.

2 June 2007 Spring Cache Fever (Medina Metroparks)

We traveled to the park with Geauga Garmin and teamed up with Cold One for the event. We weren't certain he would ever be the same and we had a new team name, Team Nature Nutz. Near the end of the Medina event, we met up with Lep and made our plans to meet Chris K for an afternoon of caching fun at Portage Lakes.

There were lots of laughs and lots of finds.

12 May 2007 #2900 Nightmare in the Woods

We actually went hunting back-to-back milestones with a friend. This time Goat Haunt joined us for a day of Medina caching. We wanted to find this legendary tough cache as our milestone. At a cache earlier in the day, we had also run into Geo Caver. We stopped to chat for a bit a mentioned that this cache was on our list for the day. As we pulled in the parking area for this cache, we saw Geo Caver's geomobile immediately. Got a tough cache to find for a milestone? No problem, just bring along Geo Caver. He found the tough stages of this multi in almost no time.

24 April 2007 Benchmark #100 Fairport Harbor Lighthouse

It was cold; really cold. We stopped to spend the late afternoon walking the beach. Since I had the gps with benchmarks, we looked for a few of those on the way. This one was #100. It's not a part of the game that many enjoy, but we have a good time finding these.

19 April 2007 #2800 Wildlife Woods Load

This was a different milestone for us since we had the pleasure of a friend joining us. GeaugaGarmin joined us for a pleasant walk through Hudson Woods. This was our second visit to this quiet park near the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. We had fun snagging this multi and spending the evening with our friend.

29 March 2007 #2700 She Said Yes

I had taken the day off work to finish preparations for our spring event in The Cleveland Metroparks. Ali and I spent most of the day in South Chagrin checking coordinates and dropping off containers. After we were finished, we decided to find a few local caches. Our last stop of the evening and the home to this nice cache was Aurora's Sunny Lake Park. The cache was placed to celebrate the engagement of a local caching team. It was a pleasant walk with a great sunset.

6 March 2007 #2600 timber!!!

timber!!! is located in Wildwood State Park. It is the far eastern park of a group of six Ohio State Parks along the Lake Erie shore in greater Cleveland. There is a nice walking trail that starts at this park and winds along the shore joining two of the other nearby state parks in this series.

This milestone was found on one of those cold March evenings when my brain is really itching to see spring. The days are longer, but not really long enough to drive anywhere after work and be outdoors. This park scratched the itch. We got to see a few interesting ducks, have a nice walk and find two nice hides by phil and nichole including this milestone.
