Cache Adventures : Marathon Road Trip

Basically, if I have time to kill, I'm grabbing a geocache. But I had other motives in mind as I grabbed a few caches on my road trip. I had a travel bug from Ohio that was interested in "all things alien" (hello, Rocket City USA, aka Huntsville, Alabama!) and also...for every state in which anyone grabs a cache, they receive a digital souvenir. It's just a little picture and some info about the state, but I'm into them. I was able to grab caches in Kentucky, definitely planned geocaching into my Huntsville visit, grabbed a quick one in Florida (where I dropped off travel bugs picked up in Alabama), and grabbed a quick cache just over the Georgia border. I wanted to grab caches in SC, NC, and VA, but I was just too tired by then. Still, it was fun to add four states to my places I've cached!!!


The cache is in the photo, can you see it?


A guard rail cache with meaning : the cache creator's brother is the name on the sign.


My first cache in Alabama was in a Confederate grave yard, of course!


Some friends at a Huntsville cache


A super cool cemetery cache.


Lowe Mill had two caches.


My sore ass limped to this night cache in Florida and dropped off a few travel bugs.


The Georgia cache was just a quick one at a truck stop, which makes me wonder how many caches are at truck stops.

    1. Vicarious road tripping is the best! ...Second to actual road tripping, of course.
