If the only reason is for the cache, then find a better spot."

Geodogs Reach 1,000 Caches!

Gwen and Eva recently reached 1,000 caches. They travel with us often, but usually hunt caches with us only when we are in the woods. They spend a lot of their time in the Allegheny National Forest, PA State Game Lands, state parks, and on the furniture.

We started off with three Geodogs in 2005 and the nickname Three-Headed Geodog. When Becky passed the name stuck. Eva and Gwen are getting on in years. Gwen had an ACL tear on the ANF's Tanbark Trail one year ago, and Eva's cancer returns with increasing frequency and severity. We knew it was time to get them to 1,000. They always enjoy a visit to Woodcock Lake and there's a few local cachers who are always placing new caches along the trails. The weather was cold and there was snow, but the streams had opened up and started flowing with a promise of spring.

Hopefully, there's more milestones ahead for our happy trail companions. They are fearless trail dogs and make geocaching better for us.

Celebrating 1,000

The Geodogs have finds in three states (Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York) and are always willing to head for high terrain hides. They've been with us for all of our milestone finds.

Eva looking for the next adventure.
