"Excerpts From ErikaJean.com" Arizona's Oldest Cache

Another awesome post from the series "Excerpts from ErikaJean.com" Arizona's Oldest Cache, enjoy!

Yesterday I met up with fellow Geocaching Blogger GeoNarcissa. I was our fist time meeting and we got along great. It's always nice to meet internet friends in "real life." ;-)


I woke up bright and early and made my way north to Phoenix to pick her up. Besides a break for brunch at her friends house and dinner at Chili's, we cached all day! We had 17 finds and only one DNF. It turns out the DNF was determined missing by the cache owner the same day.


80/365


The highlight of the day was definitely Arizona's oldest cache. The hike was roughly 1.5 miles and with a handful of caches along the way, it took us about 3 hours round trip.


We spent some time looking at the cache owner's note and the logs.

I love that this is nearly 10 years old and still out in the desert. I also got a kick out of him calling it his "GPS Stash."


The first few logs interesting too... The game has changed a lot since 2000. Some of the items left would be frowned upon now and you don't see any of the TFTC SL TNLN type lingo. They signed with there real names too. I guess the nicknames hadn't caught on yet.



This is definitely a cache I'll remember doing! I'm so glad we decided to make our way out there! You must grab this one if you are in AZ!


What's the oldest cache you've found?

That log book is awesome!

My oldest found cache is "Route 23 Art Gallery," a virtual cache in New Jersey, which was published in 2002.

Thanks for sharing!
