Peace Train: Sound of Silence
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Hanging out at Makepeace Lake, talking about geo-woodstock, our thoughts naturally turned to another era. Can't honestly say that I remember it, but I'm told I had a real good time. Funny how the more things change, the more they stay the same. Can't honestly say that I remember 40 some days ago, but I'm told that was fun, too.. The music, though – the music has never been forgotten.
We remember the slogans, too – but their meanings have changed for us.
Let's rap – turn that crap off
Tune in, turn on, drop out – turn in, put your sleep mask on, take a nap
Flower child – flower garden
Joint – where we get arthritis
Far out – a paddle to
Don't trust anyone over 30 – Anyone under 30 is still a kid
Sit-in – type of kayak
Heavy – no longer a size 5
What a trip! - great vacation!
Make love, not war - I have a headache
Anyway, hope you enjoy finding these as much as we enjoyed placing them. Hope you remember them, too. Hope the wonderful music of those times stirs some memories....if you can remember all the words.
Make sure you bring something to sign the logs with. Don't forget to write down a clue when you see one. Please leave clue cards in the caches. All caches, except #45-50 are two wheel drive accessible, but know the limits of your vehicle. You'll want to bring a water vehicle for the last cache!

and the lyrics:
The Sound of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel
Hello darkness, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence.
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
'Neath the halo of a street lamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence.
'Fools' said I, 'You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach you.'
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
In the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning,
In the words that it was forming.
And the sign said, 'The words of the prophets
are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls.'
And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.
