What a beautiful Sunday afternoon!

Yesterday we had our first warm day in weeks!
After mapping out our hunting area we were on our way.

The first place we went was just outside Mechanicville, NY.  Upon entering the location we discovered that it was a regular hangout for bums, and or teenagers?

Dan, Jack, and Ciera decided to search off past the clearing. Jillian and myself stayed back because of the gully, didnt want to fall in.

Jillian was wondering around looking and exclaims the best three words in  geocaching "I found it"
Sure enough, there it was sitting between two logs covered in bark.

As we continued on we hit a local playground. We followed the path around the back and began to look for the cache. I checked out the local wildlife and some of the marks.

Jack was the one who discovered this one, much to the dismay of his big sister. We let the kids play for a bit on the slide and then we were off again to the next hunt.

On the next one our little geocaching MVP struck again. Not 30 second after exiting the truck he found it tucked up into a wall.

The next one was in a very interesting and historical area. It was in Stillwater by the Block House.
This one was hands down the most interesting of the day.
Dan was the one who found it, we all gathered around and popped her open only to discover that the cache was infested with big black ants!
my skin still crawls thinking about it.

and here is the finder in front of the Block House

Stay tuned for our next adventure!
