Re: Eagle Rock Reservation...

Is Turtle Back Zoo in this park? My wife has been wanting to show the kids the "other" metro NY zoos at some point (we've been to the Bronx and Central Park ones many times, the others being Beardsley in CT, Turtle Back, and the ones in the other boros). Just curious, could be a good incen...

Re: Washington APE Cache archived

That is a shame. And if I remember the description of the Brazil cache right, it's not even as simple as taking a vacation to Rio or Sao Paulo and going into the nearby countryside......I think it was put deep in the jungle and requires an expensive guided tour (I originally said "with a machet...

Re: Facebook

With the conversion of the FB page to their new "Groups" formats you'll probably get lots of emails reminding you of Jeremy's posts there like I do. That may spur some action on there....

Re: Going Coastal's "Earthcache Trail" in Inwood Hill Park

Actually I checked, their other "trail" is in Liberty State Park in Jersey City.

I dug a little further, their mission is to raise awareness of urban coastal areas. They are starting in NYC then expanding to Boston and I guess eventually to other cities.

Going Coastal's "Earthcache Trail" in Inwood Hill Park

I just discovered that the environmental group Going Coastal (http://www.goingcoastal.org) has partnered with Groundspeak to place a "trail" of 10 EARTHCACHES in Inwood Hill Park in extreme northern Manhattan. I remember about 4 years ago in our relatively early days of caching finding a h...

Re: Parking for a weekend near the city?

I second the idea. I don't know if there's parking near the PATH stations in Hoboken, Newark and Jersey City, but if there is and it's not too costly that would be even better.

Re: It's My Park Day

Yes, that's a brand new mall, they're supposed to have a Lord and Taylor and a Dick's Sporting Goods as well. I knew the movie theatre already opened, but someone told me they weren't putting the stores in until the fall. Interesting.....thanks!

Re: The Other Game......

There's also an icon called a "letterbox hybrid" which is a cache with either an adjacent letterbox or one that doubles as both. The only one I know of locally is Larchmont Lark in the same named town in Westchester, though I think the letterbox vanished years ago.

Re: It's My Park Day

I'm curious, do you know where in Yonkers they are opening? There's an REI next to the tutoring place in Eastchester I work at P/T (and they are undergoing an expansion that will double the size of that store) and I noticed they do have the Groundspeak GPS and books on geocaching there. They also ha...

Re: BigBill6

Try contacting Tadpole379. She took over a lot of his caches after he passed on, especially the ones in Rockland County and in the Harriman/Bear Mtn. area (many of the NJ ones were handled by Continental Drifter).

Re: Two Local Hides in PC Magaine

It's a really good article. I've subscribed to PC Magazine for years and was pleasantly surprised to see a geocaching article.

Re: newbie question on hiding a cache - semipublic

Oy... just realized - place opens and closes also - would be situation very similar to a cache at the NY Botanical Garden (I think NYBG cache is still there) - which charges admissions year round. If the only way to get to the cache involves paying admission, the admin will probably say "no&qu...

Re: newbie question on hiding a cache - semipublic

I don't know where you are hiding it, but there is a BEAUTIFUL park in Greenwich, CT that is free from about November to April and very expensive the rest of the year (in fact years ago it was "Greenwich residents only" until a lawsuit forced an "opening") and there are 2 caches ...
