Geocache Description:

BE WARNED: Poison Ivy abounds! I found a way to the hiding spot that avoided all of it (I hope), but you could easily find yourself surrounded. I've also gotten a tick or two in this spot.

The site is a well-hidden cemetery. It was founded by the Bean family, but a good number of Hammonds (of which I am descendant) are buried here as well. There are some beautiful memorials here, so be sure to take time to look around. A Revolutionary War veteran is buried here.

Getting to the cemetery: At the crossroads, note the gravel lane to the southwest. There should be a small sign that says, "Bean Cemetery."

The container is hidden on the edge of the cemetery. It is a small ammo box. Original contents included:

  • A log book
  • A micro-cassette recorder for audio logs
  • First Aid kit
  • Sunbeam electronic bug repeller (let me know if it works)
  • A Poncho
  • Some 32 mb RAM chips (good chips, just very particular about what kind of computer the go in)
  • Some CD's
  • Spider-man antenna topper
  • McDonald's Toys
  • My signature item - lighthouse pins
  • some other stuff

Thanks for taking time to visit what I consider to be a very special site. cool hit counter
