Isn't it wonderful when you have to use a "side note" to bring a topic back on track? I love this place!

as a side note, I've never submitted an Earthcache, but wow the one at Harper's Ferry and the one at Sidling Hill nearly caused my brain to implode


Sideling Hill EC is dumb..."describe the texture of the layers of rock". Um, hard and scratchy?

So, I'm assuming that trying to make an Earthcache for the big Hedge Apple (Osage Orange) Tree in my yard, would be a no-go...even though it is quite possibly the largest one in WV.

Yep, unless you can describe how the mineral content of the soil helped make the tree a biggun. They are very picky that EC's have to be geological.

getting a earth cache published is easier than you think with 2 of mine getting permission from the DNR was the most difficult part

Yeah, but the hard part is finding significant earthcache sites that are on public land to begin with. I've found numerous worthy earthcaches, but they are on private land and tracking down the landowner is a nightmare. I'm not interested in going to a courthouse and pouring myself into digging through tax maps then contacting heirship landowners, etc.
