Despite the game's popularity, the geocaching community is a small one. So when we see a vehicle it seems natural to think we must know them. We were on our way to an afternoon caching between Elk and Clearfield counties when we spotted this rv trailer in front of us at an intersection on Route 62. With its four-color geocaching sticker, we immediately noticed the trailer. The ASPGB sticker also meant we had probably both been to the ASP Geobash together at some time or another. The ANF sticker meant these cachers had possible found one of our ANF hides. Alas, the vehicle turned toward the Kinzua dam and away from our path east. We could only guess the occupants were making their way back from GeoWoodstock in North Carolina. Geocaching can make the world smaller.

We recently had the opportunity to find another library cache. I always enjoy these hides and will go out of my way to find them. This one had a twist which included solving a five panel sudoku retrieve the coordinates for the first stage which led to the final. It was fun and will certainly earn a favorite once we finally log our find.
The containers for library caches are almost always large enough for dropping travel bugs. We left a Dream Big promotional trackable and an unactivated Volunteer trackable for the next finder.

Maybe so if Knightscope has its way. The Silicon valley company has developed a mobile security robot for both indoor and outdoor patrols.
