This cache has been archived.

fatfuzz: I've come to the realization that it is time to archive these caches. My original intent was to place a series of winter friendly caches for people to be able to enjoy around christmas. Hopefully by bringing along a non cacher and introduce them to caching. And I think that for winter caches they worked well. However, once the snow melted away, the river had other ideas. I have made several trips to these caches this spring and summer and each time at least some of the cache sites were under water.

Today I tried again and after I had replaced the first cache I realized that once again I couldn't get to some of the sites and that my intention for this series wasn't going to be realized even if I replaced all of the caches. Because even replacing them would not give a new cacher a pleasant experience with the way that the area currently is.

So I will be archiving these caches. Perhaps someone else will have another idea for caches in the area, but at least for what I had in mind for this series, I'm afraid that it no longer works. I'm sorry for those of you who wanted to complete the series and will no longer be able to. But I think that it is for the best.

Happy and safe caching.

Geocache Description:

The Seventh Day of Christmas.

This is the seventh of a series of 12 winter friendly, beginner caches.  Most of the caches have tradeable swag but you will need to bring a pen or pencil to sign the log for each cache.


Pope Sylvester I (Feast of)

The feast of Saint Sylvester. In Scotland this day is known as Hogmanay. In Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovakia, Switzerland and Slovenia, New Years Eve is still referred to as Silvester.

Pope Sylvester I (died 31 December 335), whose name is also spelled "Silvester", was the head of the Catholic Church from 31 January 314 to his death in 335. He succeeded Pope Miltiades. He filled the See of Rome at an important era in the history of the Catholic Church, yet very little is known of him. The accounts of his papacy preserved in the Liber Pontificalis (7th or 8th century) contain little more than a record of the gifts said to have been conferred on the Church by Constantine I, but it does say that he was the son of a Roman named Rufinus.
Hogmanay (Scots: [ˌhʌɡməˈneː], HUG-mə-NAY, Scottish English: [ˌhɔɡməˈneː] HOG-mə-NAY) is the Scots word for the last day of the year and is synonymous with the celebration of the New Year (Gregorian calendar) in the Scottish manner. However, it is normally only the start of a celebration that lasts through the night until the morning of New Year's Day (1 January) or, in some cases, 2 January—a Scottish Bank Holiday.
