Some Quick Finds

Posted by teamharpo on January 4, 2015 at 10:55 PM Comments comments (2)

Yes, you guessed it. After seeing another post on the Facebook page we decided to go look for the first cache on the list. We ran into 2 other cachers while we were retrieving the first one as well. It was nice bumping into them right at the same time we were looking for it. We chatted for a bit and traded a few stories and then we moved on to look for a few more.


 

Here are the logs for the caches we found today:

Sunken Meadow and Kings Park Psych

Posted by teamharpo on January 3, 2015 at 10:50 PM Comments comments (2)

We saw another post of the Facebok page and put this geocache on the radar to find today. It brought us out to a park with some more geocaches and the neighboring property, the former Kings Park Psych Center so we walked around while the weather was still cooperating. We did get a little wet due to the snow showers, but all was good and successful.


Here are the logs for the geocaches we found today:

Our trip for Shopping

Posted by teamharpo on November 24, 2012 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (1)

We have a favorite camping store in New Jersey and it is only open during the week and on Saturday. So whenever we get a chance and we need to do some shopping, we head out to go here. We wrapped up the shopping by looking for a few geocaches around the neighborhood.


 

Here are the logs for the caches we found:


 

Button Bin

Team Harpo was in New Jersey today doing a little Camping shopping. We did not bring our GPS but used the phone app to look for a few before heading back to NY.

 

We found this relatively quickly and we signed the look and took nothing and left nothing. Thanks for the cache, cheers.

Utah, Yellowstone, and Colorado

Posted by teamharpo on September 22, 2012 at 10:50 PM Comments comments (2)

This is our big trip. We are celebrating 20 years married and we planned this trip to Yellowstone as well as visiting a few family members along the way in Salt Lake City and Cheyenne, Wyoming. We started the trip in Salt Lake City, Utah and spent a few days there and then we travelled up through Idaho, a piece of Montana and into Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. We had a great time spending 3 nights in the park and we saw 2 grizzly bears, a few wolves, coyotes, bison and numerous birds. We then went to the Grand Tetons and stayed in Jackson Hole. We then made the long journey across Wyoming to Cheyenne where we stayed the night. The next day we stopped in Denver Colorado before flying back to New York. It was a great trip that we will remember for a long time.


 

We found geocaches in 5 different states on this trip and we will not forget these as well.


 

Here are the logs of the finds:

If you build it they will come!

This is Team Harpo's first visit to Utah and this is the first Geocache that we have found in this state.

 

After going over to Antelope Island and checking out the Great Salt Lake, we ate dinner and looked for this cache. We found this cache easily enough but the log is full and we just checked to see if we could sign it. We put it back in its hiding spot and went back to our lodging.

 

Thanks for the cache, cheers.

Oquirrh Park Invasion by Reed Mapper&TellFamily 1

Team Harpo is visiting Utah and on the way to the Copper Mine we noticed the sign for the Olympic Oval. On the return trip back to Ogden, we made a detour to check out the oval. Lucky for us there is a cache here for us to find and log. We located ground zero and although it was off slightly we looked around to the most likely hiding spot. We located the cache and signed the log (which is completely full now) and then we put it back. This is the 2nd cache we have located while staying here in Utah.

 

On to Idaho tomorrow, cheers!

The cache apparently met its demise via the lawnmower :( ......... We will post a maintenance note for the owner advising that they need to put a new container out! Nice area though - we couldn't get there from here so had to go that way LOL....... TeamHarpo
