Didn't find it Kordite couldn't find New Hope (Locked)

Sunday, November 9, 2003Pennsylvania

My brother invited me to help chaparone his Boy Scout troop on a 50-mile bike ride along the Delaware Canal. So, I drove out from Pittsburgh to Tinicum County Park and spent the night in my little tent in sub-freezing temperatures. Under those conditions, I have no problem getting up and riding. Peddeling is much warmer than being huddled in a sleeping bag. But getting a dozen kids to get up and get going, well, that's a different matter.

By the time I got down to New Hope, I had warmed up considerably. I had stripped down to my bike shorts, long sleve shirt and windbreaker. I don't know what the temperature was but it was still pretty cold. I arrived at the bridge and went up top to see if I could find the slice of whatever it was. I couldn't. The kids were riding past, wondering what I was doing and whether they should leave the trail so I abandoned my search to keep them on the right track.

Not finding a virtual is very disappointing. New Hope is a nice little town and maybe when the weather gets nice in the spring I'll come back, ride the canal some more and try for this cache again.

My Brother's Boy Scouts.The day started out at around 25 degrees but quickly warmed up into the more comfortable mid 30's. Enough for me to loose the long pants, sweatshirt and face mask.

infoA virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location. Depending on the cache "hider," a virtual cache could be to answer a question about a location, an interesting spot, a task, etc. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit.

Because of the nature of these geocaches, you must actually visit the location and acquire the coordinates there before you can post. In addition, although many locations are interesting, a virtual cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit.

Virtuals are now considered waymarks on Waymarking.com.
