This is a milestone cache on a Geoversary - #1300 on Nov. 9 - the same date we found our first cache 10 years ago. That required something special. We contacted our cahing friends from Sandland to see what their calendar looked like for today, and it was clear. Then it was time to check out caches in the neighborhood and line up an itinerary.
Grandma is a quilter, so the Granny Square caches caught our eye. She knew what the term meant, but looking at the cache printout provided no clue as to where to find it! We racked our brains for quite awhile, and finally caved in and called the C.O. for guidance. Thank you Pat for getting us pointed in the right direction. Between a pretty good color printout, an LCD monitor, and some deductive reasoning, Gram had some suggested coordinates worked out. But it still took a few visits to GeoChecker before we got the green light. We sure appreciate this being included in puzzle listings.
A bonus was having a good extended lunch with the Sandlanders - lotsa laughs, good caching and fishing stories, and other assorted tales. Then it was off to Granny Square land. A pretty rea to hike in to, and a clever hide to boot. It don't get much better than this!
