Trip to Ohio

Posted by teamharpo on May 5, 2012 at 11:25 PM

We set out on a road trip to see the family and do some sightseeing in Pennsylvania and Ohio.  We had planned a trip to California but unforeseen circumstances prevented us from going on that trip so instead we switched plans and drove to Ohio on a visit to family.  We make a stop at Hershey to go through the “factory” and learn a lot about the man who started it all.  What an interesting story and the history of the chocolate candies we all know and love here in the United States.  Hershey even started a school for the “orphans” which has grown from under 30 students to well over 1000.  It is a resident school where the students live in a house with adults to maintain a family atmosphere for all the children.  It is really quite extraordinary. 


After this visit we head off to Ohio the next day to pick up daughter and then head up to Lake Erie for a visit to Put-in-Bay on South Bass Island.  We have never been there and it is a new experience for all of us.  We learn some history about the island at the monument located here called the International War Memorial commemorating one of the more significant battles during the War of 1812, the Battle of Lake Erie.


While on our travels we find a few caches along the way and here are the logs for the Geocahes we found:

In Loving Memory of Mary W.

Team Harpo was visiting the family and we stopped here as we headed south to the Dayton area. Before heading out we looked for the few geocaches in the area and then headed down I-75. We had to look like we were trying to find a headstone as the workers in the area were weed wacking. We found it OK and signed the log. Thanks for the cache, cheers!

Life of Armstrong Series #5

Team Harpo is on the way south to the Dayton area. This is our 950th find. We were told of this one by one of the staff, but we already had it on the radar to find since it was so close. We found ground zero and lifted one rock and located the hiding spot. It is well hidden. Thanks for the cache, cheers!

I'm very sneaky

Team Harpo is on the way back from the BBQ and we stopped here to take a look for some more caches. We parked the car, and noticed the gym was not so busy so we could take a look for the cache.

The Annoying Hint Cache

Team Harpo is on the way back from the BBQ and we stopped here to take a look for some more caches. We located ground zero, so we thought and then looked around and re-read the information in the cache. We headed to the real GZ and found it quickly enough in the new spot. Thanks and we agree with the annoying hints and what-not on some of the caches we have found in the past. Thanks for the cache, cheers.
