Yes, you did... unless you attach them to something ugly that no one wants to keep.

BTW, if you drop one off on the upcoming trip where we can pick it up, the TB can make it back to the Barn pretty fast! Wink

You don't have to go up in the Arch for the info, just into the museum at the bottom. I can even remember where to get the final info... Twisted Evil


You mustus rememberus who I will be traveling with. The NON-geocaching Mud Duck. So most cache will have to be easy, places of interest, and ** GASP** P&G's. Rolling Eyes

Not sure of your route, but if you take I-57 south of Champaign, IL, you can get the Hippie cache (GC5DE8), which I believe the Hippies will be looking for around that same time. Continuing on south on 57, if you take the split on 64 to Paducah, KY, there is a neat rest stop there that has a cache (GC2YNNW) to look for. We have been there twice, but both BC, so we will be looking for this one on our upcoming trip.

Then there's always the MOGA mega event April 5-7. We'll be there on the 6th only, but scott543, the hippies, the hotdogs, and others have signed up to go, too. I could take you on in the Wizard puzzle challenge there... Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil


If you're into significant geography/history of the Mississippi, in particular, confluences where the major tributaries enter, such as the Wisconsin, here's one that's kinda on the way: Ohio and Mississippi River Confluence EC. Similarly, you can pick one up at the Illinois and Missouri Rivers by St. Louis, and if you're going way south, take an interesting highway to the end in La., where it enters the Gulf.

We visited that spot BC in 1989, and the two rivers were distinctly different in color. Oddly enough, it was the Ohio that was muddy, not the Mississip.

I'm also working on a route to get us to this little bit of Kentucky that is totally surrounded by the river and Tennessee: GC1A4KN We enjoy going to "mappy" places like this... boundaries, where so many states meet, farthest cache N/S/E/W in a state, etc.

What can I say? The flying spaghetti monster has decreed that I shall not be productive today.

By "decreed" I mean he got drunk and crashed into the servers so that I can't work til IT fixes something.

We did that exclave last spring. Interesting countryside, that. The New Madrid Fault ec near there was where the road was not a road anymore and we met another cottonmouth.

If you do that confluence one, you get to see Cairo, too. I'm just fascinated in a strange way about the story of that town after traveling through there.

Great way to remember the good times. Betty and I reloaded the machines for you on Saturday. Good luck!
