This site is where Stonewall Jackson died.

Notes from the cache log: We were surprised by the number of people visiting the site – It’s kind of out of the way. Very cool though. We’re trying to teach the kids as we visit historic sites. Thanks for setting this cache!

There was a question asked, to prove that we visited. The answer was emailed to the cache owner.

This was an interesting cache to find. It was located in a roadside table structure, meant for travelers to be able to stop for a quick, rest, picnic etc.  It was a tiny micro cache. Just big enough to contain a rolled log to write the date and name on.

This cache was a recent find in a local, popular shopping area. Strong “muggle” presence so carefully placing it back for the next person to find was important. it was found in the base of a parking lot light fixture, under the cover.

Notes from the cache log: Easy Find. Good Condition.

As you can see, there are a lot of Geocaches/Letterboxes to find out there. Many are in nature areas, while others are found in shopping centers and other highly populated areas.   There is a location for everyone.  Hiking is NOT always needed. Some are quite easy to find, with very little walking.

Let me hear about some of the caches you have found.  Remember not to give too much away as we don’t want to spoil the fun for others. 🙂
