Geocache Find #700!

Geocache find #700

If it looks like a lot of geocaching is going on, it's true! It took 85 days to go from 500 to 600, and only 43 days to get to 700. That's because I love the fall, and had the most finds in a calendar month in September (87). The 700 finds milestone came on Thanksgiving Monday, as we all travelled down to the city for dinner at Aunt Joc and Uncle Mark's place (ummmm good).

After a stop at Pine Farms to pick some apples and pick up some wine, we headed for Home on the Moraine - Eaton Hall, a two-stage multi-cache on the Oak Ridges Moraine.

Actually, we stopped at this cache exactly one year ago under the exact same circumstances and came out with a DNF (Did Not Find). But that was because the first stage was missing. Without the coordinates at the first stage, we couldn't carry on to the final.

This time we found the coordinates quite easily when Kritter! knocked over a sign, then pointed to a brass tag on the bottom and said "there it is!" After propping the sign back up, we enjoyed the strange ruins for a while, then carried on along the trail to the final.

I arrived at ground zero first, and by the time the rest of the family caught up I had found the container hidden in the detritus of the forest floor. We all gathered around for the group shot, then hiked our way back out and on to the feast!
