In Texas, United States
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Orange Texas is an interesting city with lots of history and sights to see. The areas that this paddle series take you too are ones that most people never get to experience.
As you might suspect, these caches require some form of waterborne transportation. The caches were placed while in the kayak and as such, are tailored more to that form than others. There were many logs, stumps, and lots of shallow water to negotiate so kayak or canoe would probably be best to use.
If you have looked at the map, you'll see that this first installment of caches involves around 2 miles of paddling one way. There is parking at each end which can be an advantage. These are listed on ABPAGS #1's cache page. I paddled down from the more northerly parking coordinates and then back without any problems when i placed these. Most of the caches themselves are paddle and grabs, meaning you can just pull up to and get them from the comfort of your boat. However, there are a couple or three that do require exiting of your rig to get to. You'll be finding that all the caches, except fo the Bonus, are soda tubie in size and have no writing utensils. You'll need to bring your own to sign the logs.
Speaking of Bonus Cache, two of the soda tubes have information needed to find it. Not saying which two so you'll need to keep an eye out for this information which is located on two of the logscrolls. You'll find more info for the Bonus Cache on it's cache page.
As with all similar areas, be on the watch for many varieties of wildlife. This is a birder's paradise with no telling how many species a person might encounter. It's also well suited for other critters and plant life that you might want to avoid. Gaters, snakes, spiders, wasp nests, and poison ivy are just a few. All are interesting but you do want to watch where you put your hands and feet.
That's about it except to reiterate that these caches will take some effort to get to and are placed out in the wild. Be prepared with the essentials such as life jacket, water, a snack maybe, skeeter spray, sun protection, phone, and camera.
We hope you enjoy,,, Goodluck!
