Geocache Description:

For Joe the Mailman’s 1,000th geocache find, I found a Geo-Post Office to be the only really appropriate type of cache to hide for him. Congratulations on your 1000th find, Joe!

This is a Geo-Post Office! It is used to swap notes, cards and postcards between geocachers!

Here is how it works: Caches are placed to hold postcards. Each postcard will have a short message and a forwarding address on it. The address will contain the person's name that you are trying to send the postcard to, their home city, and a destination cache. The idea is to move postcards between Geo-Post Offices until they reach their destination. When you move a postcard or message from one place to another, let the person who it's being sent to know where you moved it to, because they might be near enough to go and pick it up. If you move a postcard from one Geo-Post Office to another, please move it closer to the city or cache!

How do you get started? Easy! Just write your note or postcard and drop it in the Geo-Post Office! If there are any notes or postcards in the cache when you arrive, feel free to forward them on to another Geo-Post Office nearer to their location if you can. If not, don't worry, just leave them for the next cacher. If you wish, add a note or post card for another geocacher please feel free to do so then send me a note and I will add them to the list of those with mail waiting.

The cache is a .50 cal. ammo box. Although there are a few swag items in the cache at the onset, please do not add swag as the intent is for postcards and trading trackable items only. Please re-hide the cache as well as or better than you found it.

Trails are open dawn to dusk. The area is a WETLAND. Trails are not well maintained but are marked with red ribbons. The difficulty level on this cache could go up in certain seasons. Bug spray is a MUST in season. There is quite a presence of poison ivy here so tread mindfully. Parking for 2-3 cars is available at the end of Summerset Ct. or the dead-end of Moyer Road. If you use the Summerset Ct. entrance, please stay as far to the right of the pine trees to keep off private property. Walk in the uncut grass to the bridge.

The following people have mail waiting:

Team Pattipedia
Mattracker
Guinea gal
Fishing Gal

Some of these postcards I have found in another geo-post office, GC2A3BT - The Jewett Geo-Post Office, and relocated them here to get them closer to a location for the intended geocacher.

Congratulations to Joe the Mailman on FTF and his 1,000th find!
