BIG AL'S TOP TEN LIST FOR 2011

Big Al's Top Ten Caches for 2011.


Welcome to Thirsty Thursday!!


Grab a cup of coffee, or tea, sit back and read about some very interesting caches that I have found over the last year.


By now, if you have been Geocaching for some time, you probably have some favorite caches that you have found. GC.com has even made it possible to give a Favorite point to those caches that really reach out and make it all worth while.


I must say that I like almost all of the caches I have found up to this point. There have been a few that really did nothing for me other than give me another smiley. But then there are a number of them that are what I have considered to be my favorites. So with out any further yakking from me here are Big Al's top ten cache finds for 2011.




Number 10



This was a fun night cache that my kids and I did. It is along a trail at our local Animal Shelter. 


















Number 9
U.S.S. COLE MEMORIAL


State Of Maryland
The Halfway Boulevard bridge over I-81 is dedicated to the memory of
U.S. Navy Fireman Patrick Howard Roy and U.S. Navy Seaman Craig Bryan Wibberly Killed in service to our country when terrorists attacked the U.S.S. Cole (DDG 67) on October 12, 2000


                                              Number 8
                         WELCOME TO WEST VIRGINIA 




This was one of the caches my son and I found on our drive from Texas to PA when he got out of the USAF in October. This cache container was one of the cleverest I have ever seen. I will not post a picture of it, but I sure want to place one of these sometime in the future.


Number 7


NORTHBOUND REST AND GRAB
This was a fun cache. Here is my log.


Traveling from TX to PA with my son and stopping along the way and picking up caches. This was a nice stop to get out and do a little walking. Two state workers were out watering the yards, but I used more stealth than they have ever seen. This was almost a DNF, but then my Geosenses took over and I found it. Thanks for another cache for my son and me to log. Wish we had time to do the one across the road. Maybe some other day. Thanks for the rest stop. I forgot to add that this was a well placed cache. 




Number 6
CUBA EASY GEOCACHE





This was another cache that is at a rest stop. It is nice to be able to stop and walk around to stretch your legs and to also be able to grab a cache while you're at it. This container was another unique one. It's the first of its kind that I have found.




Number 5
I-10 HERITAGE CENTER AND ARBORETUM


La Maison de Begnaud is located in the city of Scott,La. It is a cultural and tourist center. On the Arboretum property sits an original Cajun home once owned by Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Begnaud after their matrimonial in 1879. This city and the surrounding towns have great Cajun history. Please stop in for tourist information or you might catch a Cajun heritage function going on. You have permission to hunt and go inside and ask MaMa Redell to tell you some of the rich Cajun stories this area treasures.


This was another nice stop in Louisiana. We found the cache and then took some pictures with a local icon. If you get the chance sometime you need to visit this place. 






Number 4
THE SHEPARD’S WAY


This was the first cache we found on our trip back to PA. It is a nice little cemetery located right off of the main highway. 










Number 3
QUID PRO QUO





This cache is located out near the Veteran's Hospital in Wilkes-Barre, PA. It is a nice walk along an old road. It then takes you to an old area in the woods. This is a nice multi-cache if you ever get the chance to visit it. 


The last two were a little difficult to try and see which one was which, but I was finally able to choose.


Number 2
UP ON THE ROCK


                     The Cachecrazy Authors




                     Cache and help from a Gerber


This was a cache that the administrators of Cachecrazy.com got together to find. This was our first meeting as a team, and it was a blast. You'll have to check it out for yourself or you can read our Blog.


Okay, and the number 1 cache for 2011 is:


ISLAND TOUR










This cache find was fun for several reasons. One is that we got to it by boat. Two is that I was able to introduce my nephew to Geocaching and he is now hooked totally. If you did not see my post about the Tour, then you should check it out.


I hope that you have enjoyed reading about my top ten caches for 2011. Last year was a fun year and I expect this year to be even better.


Let's hear about some of your favorite caches. Cache on friend, cache on.

Keep the blogs coming, I'm enjoying them all BigAl and like reading what other geocachers are up to, especially in a different continent to myself. Great post.

I foresee a lot of caching along the eastern seaboard south to Florida during the next year. And also some caching up in the Adirondacks! Looking forward to it!
