Greetings everyone, how is your fall going? I recently drove my mom out to Northeastern PA so she could meet up with my aunt and grandmother for a weekend trip to the New York area. On my way back home I did some geocaches along Interstate 80 West with Whomping Werewolf (TB7KMME). First up was J.O.E 80 – #224 in PA (GC3TAB0). It’s a quick cache and dash located at Exit 224 of I-80. Be sure to look high and low as it is camouflaged. Next was Westbound Distraction (GC2KGFK). It’s a quick cache and dash at a rest stop. It’s also a good place to stretch your legs.
Welcome to the Pennsylvania WILDS (I-80 Rest Area)(GCK5AV) is located at the first rest stop after entering the PA WILDS. The PA WILDS is a largely rural and forested area of north central PA. It’s known for a number of state parks and forests and other natural sightseeing opportunities. It’s a nice short walk in the woods and over a small creek to get to the cache. I managed to make it across without getting wet on the way in but was not so nimble on the walk out. Area can get a little muddy so I would suggest wearing boots.
Next I did See The Lite (GC40N6Q). It’s a cache located at the Weis Markets off of Buckaroo Lane and took a couple minutes to find. Finished up the day with Silence In The Library (GC6RD7R). I dropped off Whomping Werewolf so it could continue its journey to visit the lower 48 States. Thanks for reading and keep on caching.
