Does someone have a logical route for getting all these caches?


Baytown Bert and the word "logical" in the same post?

Am I the only one that sees the conundrum here?

I pose very often as an expert, but the truth is I am severely deranged.

Back when we did the main series, we followed the western most road to the south, and did the caches from south to north.
That way we ended back at the car. Unfortunately, there are more caches now, so some doubling back will be necessary.

I did a maintenance check today and found two caches that had many dnf's right at GZ. One had not been found since March and it was there and easy to spot. I did archive my field puzzle US treasury due to someone breaking the puzzle. Oh well. All is well as I replaced a few logs and checked on several. It was very dry even though we had a downpour yesterday.


Oh and there are no hunters what so ever. You just have to watch out for horses.

Okay, this post is for all who have never been to W G Jones state forest. This is a wonderful place to geocache that words cannot describe. We rode our mountain bikes and every so often, the sandy road caused us to stop, but it is very doable on bikes, albeit with some effort, especially if the horse hooves have chewed up the road. We saw no snakes, not much thorns, and in comparison to Baytown, almost no poison ivy. Very few mossies also. Here's a photo of my Bride and I at the Iwo Jima Memorial cache:

We did 38 on bicycles including the GC2T4BAPosted Image Presidential Series Mystery Cache which is a serious bushwhack that took us a half hour going in and out. This was a little over half of the caches and took us 5 hours, to give you an idea what to plan for. I know people do it faster, but if you just amble along and enjoy the trip, I think it is more like 8-9 hours, even on bikes, or a two day trip. We found every cache we looked for and there are many very big cache containers, so bring the swag and TB's. This is a state forest, so there are no toilet facilities, so pack accordingly.

I see PR disabled it back in February with the following note: Due to the drought, Jones State Forest has been closed to the public while dead wood is logged and cleared. It is probable that at least some caches will be damaged or destroyed in this process. Once the forest has been reopened to the public, the cache owner will need to physically visit the cache to determine if it is still viable, before enabling the cache. Further details will be emailed directly to the cache owner.

People have been logging the cache as found, but my guess is the owner never replied to any of PR's emails so he archived and locked it. If only he could be so diligent with caches that are actually missing with tons of DNF's!

I just got this reply from Prime Reviewer: "Cache was archived because owner has not followed the park ranger's instructions." So how come it is locked so nothing can be posted? I don't usually see this when I visit an archived cache page.

Yes because the Pres series is awesome but the new additions in what I call the US Govt series is even better.

Ben Franklin - Fireman and Postmaster General

Best container along with Smithsonian.

I'd rather have "World Peace"


This is one of the ones we hid along with my series and it goes well with the theme.

From the TAMU Forest Service website: http://texasforestse...le.aspx?id=1790"Texas State Forests are Game Sanctuaries with no firearms or hunting allowed."


Technically, they can't prohibit holders of concealed handgun permints from carrying a firearm on the premises, unless it is plainly posted pursuant to section 30.06 of the penal code (the "thirty aught six" law). Namely that a sign is posted on the property that states: "Pursuant to Section 30.06, Penal Code (trespass by holder of license to carry a concealed handgun), a person licensed under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code (concealed handgun law), may not enter this property with a concealed handgun";

AND the sign...

(i) includes the language in both English and Spanish;
(ii) appears in contrasting colors with block letters at least one inch in height; and
(iii) is displayed in a conspicuous manner clearly visible to the public.
