An easy find at one of our favorite Central Park historical landmarks.
Our first hide!
The Blockhouse is the only remaining fort (of 5) that protected NYC during the War of 1812.
Cache contains a logbook only.
This geocache has an accompanying podcast that will give some historical background. The podcast will NOT help you find the cache, but is simply provided as a fun "extra". To load the podcast to your .mp3 player go to:
This is my buddy's website (NOT mine!) who is cool enough to loan me the apace until I get my own website up-and-running. Please don't send comments to him, regarding this podcast.
Please be sure to replace the cache and wedge-it into place, as this cache keeps disappearing.
