Breakfast and a Cache, ELGT (Lancaster LVIII)

On Saturday morning, I headed out to the Mays Landing Diner for "Breakfast and a Cache". I had to wake up earlier than usual to get to this geocaching breakfast event because it's over an hour from home. I had eggs benedict. We also had elephant ears. (which Frampus was demonstrating proper use of in that photo :) ) Originally, I figured I was just going to the breakfast event and then I'd look for geocaches in the area, but they had a surprise waiting. 28 geocaches in the "BAC" series were set to publish at breakfast time. After breakfast, we all headed out to the dirt roads to tackle those. With more than 20 people and kids searching at the same time, most of those caches didn't take much time to find. It was a lot of fun. To save time, we signed the log as "Team BAC", which stood for "Breakfast and a Cache" but at times got referred to as "Bad-Ass Cachers" and "Blood Alcohol Content". After the BAC series, we also tackled the "Nature Stroll" and "ND" series together, although the group got smaller and smaller as folks needed to leave. For the last few caches, I cherry-picked the ones that I could go for in the dark and found those on the way to dinner.

On Sunday, I went to the west side of Lancaster County to do the "LOST on the ELGT" cache series. These were all along the Enola Low Grade Trail from the Turkey Hill area to the hydroelectric dam on the Susquehanna River. There were a variety of different cache types, including puzzles, multi-stage, and a letterbox hybrid. There was even an earthcache, for which I had to research the answers when I got home. (Yes, there is homework in geocaching too. :) ) There was a broad range of difficulty and terrain levels too. Because I spent too much time on the harder caches, I only got two-thirds of the way down the trail before it got too late and I had to turn around. Even so, it was already a six-mile hike, which I figured was enough for one day.
