LVGC Breakfast, 5/5 geocache, Take A Walk

On Saturday, I went to the LVGC Breakfast geocaching event at Borderline Restaurant in Bethlehem, PA. I ordered the breakfast special, which sounded like a simple thing but came on two plates! Probably a good thing it was filling though, because the group spent most of the day on a 4-mile hike on the towpath. It was fun. The group did two series of geocaches that were all in a row on the towpath. Then we relocated to another section of the towpath, closer to Easton, for more geocaches. After that, the group broke up but CaptainMath and I went off to do a few more geocaches, since both of us are from outside of the Lehigh Valley area and don't often get a chance to tackle the challenging caches there.

Since I returned from Lehigh Valley late on Saturday and woke up late on Sunday, I decided not to go too far from home. There was the new "Take A Walk" series of caches in East Goshen but 9 geocaches were not enough to fill the day, so I did some before and after those. Excalibur II is a 5/5 rated geocache in Talley Day Park, Wilmington. It's in the same spot as the former Excalibur geocache. A 5/5 rating is the highest level for difficulty and terrain, although I don't think it is as hard as the cache owner intended. As designed, one would have to climb a tree to get a tool to extract the cache. However, I had an idea what was required, so I brought my own retrieval tool (the 3-foot grabber) and that worked very well. I also met a nice horse near "By The Fence - Another Woodlawn Ammo Box".
