This cache has been archived.

FrancisScottKey: Due to the present "stay at home" directive within the State of Maryland, the Maryland Volunteer Reviewers have determined it is prudent to revise our reviewing practices effective March 30, 2020. We regret that we must archive this event during this time.

At this time, we will only be publishing caches in those locations which are consistent with social distancing, such as on a hiking trails, and/or far from residential areas and businesses. We will not be publishing event caches, caches in or near residential areas, caches near businesses, or caches in locations that are officially closed (such as state parks). If we are unsure about a particular cache, we will not publish it. We realize this approach imperfect, but we feel it is both consistent with Governor Hogan's “Stay Home” order and preferable to stopping all cache publication.

We will continue to monitor covid-19 information and communication and will continue to revisit which caches we can publish.

Thank you for understanding,
FrancisScottKey

Extra things to keep in mind:

  • If you pick up a Travel Bug or trackable coin at one of the events, make sure you log it out so it doesn't show up in the events list. If a trackable sits as being listed in the event for a couple of months, the cache owner is the one that gets the e-mail from the TB owner(s).
