Pocahontas County Nature’s Mountain Playground Geocache Chal

Postby deizelsmommy on Sat Apr 28, 2012 3:28 pm

Just wondering if anyone else is looking into this challenge?

http://www.pocahontascountywv.com/geocaching.aspx

The 12 caches should be posted but I am unable to find them. It said they would be posted the last week of April.
Anyone have any luck locating them?

Funny. We were talking about this at lunch/early dinner today.

Wonder if they are having issues with the reviewer due to the (seeming) commercial nature of the caches. Although they don't sound much different that many other types - ExploreWV included - that encourage tourism.

p.s. they really should use spell check.

Colecops and I are going tonight if anyone wants to be slick for work tomorrow. :lol:
I called the Vistors Bureau and they emailed the coords to me. They are waiting for the publisher to publish them.

We'll be trying this weekend then, weather permitting. And surely you won't be night caching.....

Bump, why yes we will on some of them. When I spoke with the lady, she said there were only 4 that were not very quick and easy. The most any require is a mile hike on the rails for trails. We are saving those 4 till last. :)

I'm guessing you've not been in Pocahontas County at night.....

No, I have not been to Poca County at night. We have changed our plans and are leaving Fairmont at 7am.

Just curious, why not cache in Poca Co. at night?

Ahhh. Caching Pocahontas County at night ... nothing quite like it.

I hope you're not planing to claim FTF before the caches are published. :lol:

I just checked on geocaching. All of them have been published and some of them were published on the 28th. I'll just be happy to be out and about caching again. :grin: Best of Luck to all of you who cache. I'm just hoping I don't bring the rain.

That's a nice looking coin. Am I correct in my original speculation that this is not a trackable geocoin?

Just noticed - no is it no trackable. I kinda wish I had known that before I made the trip twice!

I would not get an FTF before it is published. That is horrible.
Not sure how the guy got the FTFs on every one!! That is all I will say.
