We started our 12th year of geocaching at Hatch Run in Pennsylvania. Phineas the Geobeagle started the new year by slipping his leash at Hatch Run and sending us on a multi-mile chase through the woods and across icy cold streams. shores of Lake Erie. Mound City. It had been years since we last visited. This time there are geocaches there. :) Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. It was a super way to top the trip. South Mountain as the Super Moon rose for the evening.
We found this one somewhere in Ohio. The cache is a locked box.

Everyone who caches has found a container with a small opening and a huge log inside which doesn't want to come out of the container. A cacher owner in SW Ohio has found a solution to retrieving the log without making a mess. The cache owner takes a section of a wide drinking straw like the ones provided for frozen sodas. The cache hider cut a section as long as the width of the log roll and sliced the straw along the length.

There's plenty of time to shop and limited time to hunt caches. We spent the day after the holidays in the Allegheny National Forest walking the trails and finding caches. The days are shorter, but the caches are still plenitful.

We really enjoy finding caches which have been sitting unfound for six months or more. In the current urban micro and power trail game geocaching has become, caches in the woods can sit for months without finders. Lonely cache challenges encouraging cachers to leave the norm and find lightly found caches are one of the challenge cache types that died when the new, stringent challenge rules were released.
