Pofe: Greetings from Geocaching.com

I have been looking at caches in the area that have been temporarily disabled for a while now and it looks like your cache has been under the weather for some time. While I feel that Geocaching.com should hold the location for you and block other cachers from entering the area around this cache for a reasonable amount of time I don’t think we can do so any longer. Therefore, I have archived this cache. If you haven’t done so already, please pick up any remaining cache bits as soon as possible.

When repairs to this cache are completed and it is time to have it reposted, it will be no problem. Just drop me a note and let me know the GC waypoint number of the cache or better yet, the URL of the cache page. You will still be able to access your cache page just as before by going to your “My Cache Page” and clicking the link of your cache.

I will be more than happy to take a look at your cache again to see if it is still is within the guidelines of the Geocaching.com website for cache placement and posting.

I want to thank you for the time that you have taken to contribute to geocaching in the past and am looking forward to seeing your cache up and running in the future.

Thanks,

Geocache Description:

This is a micro cache at the Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park that is well worth the visit.

Even though I've heard a lot about this Fort, I'd never actually been there until recently. I enjoyed exploring it so much that I thought I'd introduce a few others to the spot as well. Add a touch of reality to your Revolutionary War history lesson with a visit to the Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park, site of the 1781 massacre led by the traitorous Benedict Arnold. There's a great website with detailed information about the battles waged here (visit link)

It's also a fun place for kids to explore. They'll have fun looking at the ditch ("dry moat") and the tunnel-like passageway ("sally port") as well as the many other small detours. And the view of New London is remarkable.

Make sure to stop and look at the buildings along the way...especially the one made of brick(N 41 21.205/W 072 04.864). Did you know that these existed? I didn't!

The micro contains only a log book - PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN PENCIL OR PEN!

This is a great one to find in tandem with Cadea's "Ernie's Treasure" cache!

Note: In icy weather, some of the stones are quite slippery so please be careful.
