  1. This weekend I only have Sunday available, I think I might go again to explore another section inside the Bear Mountain / Seven Lakes Area, I'm sure the Fall colors & better weather, will make it an even better experience.


    I'll try to post more concrete hiking plans tonight in case anyone is interested to pack lunch for an intense hike and expend a day immersed in nature. I'm thinking of an early start but that's subject to change. If anyone is planning something else that involves a beautiful area and a nice hike, I'm all ears.

    Just a few more to keep things going. By the way, I failed the test miserably. While I can't answer yes to all of the questions, I'm pretty sure I qualify for geek status.

  3. Even thou it seems that tomorrow won't be the best of days, I think I'll still be going to the Harriman / Bear Mountain area to hit some caches. My idea is to start in the morning with the Black Rock Mountain Letterbox hybrid and park at N41 13.823 W74 08.399.


    From there my plan is to pack lunch and then do some mayor hiking (9 miles +) while hitting some caches along the way, so most of the day will be spent in the woods.


    Anyone is welcome, just keep in mind that my main goal is to explore the area & enjoy nature while getting a intensive workout, the caching experience will be used as an incentive just to keep me going!


    If someone is interested I'll check this forum before heading out to arrange a meeting place, other ways, just head out and enjoy the hunt, chances are will meet in our way to any of those caches. The best way to track another cacher in the area is to post your next cache heading in the log book as well as the time you were there.


    Happy caching everyone!

    We targeting The Love Shack and Beyond and the other two cache on the mountain, for a cache hunt and hike this weekend. (Sat. 10/25)


    I'm afraid this Saturday is not good for me, but I'm planning to hit some caches up north in the Bear Mountain Area this Sunday (weather providing),so I can check out the trails up there as well as the Fall colors.


    Have a great hunt guys!

  5. I like to use a "Dakine Poacher" Top-loading Pack that was originally designed for snowboarders but it's amazing for Geo-hiking.


    The size is just perfect, not too big, not too small (2000ci) that's why it works great as a backpack/daypack.


    The best feature is the back access zipper, designed to get at the main compartment without having to take off the pack. This Back access also has a mesh organizer pockets perfect for holding a compass ,nutrition bars.. On the sides has quick-draw holsters great for hiking poles.


    The top cover includes a Map pocket with clear window and the belt has a removable hip stash pocket for small valuables.

    It is also camelbak compatible and I use it in combination with a 3 litter hydration system.

    I'd still like to get a group hunt together for the Hudson highlands. I bought a trail map for the area last week. It would have to be a Saturday for me. Probably over the next few weeks. The fall colors should be near peak in Mid Oct, so maybe we can shoot for that.


    What's the status on that GroupHunt, is anything being planned?

  7. I'm not aware of any service like that besides the classic mapquest.


    I like to use Expert GPS for that. I can get the waypoints overlaid over a choice of topographic or aerial maps, But the best part is that I can scan any trail map of an area and then use it in the same manner! Really useful if you like to see what trail is closer to the cache.

  8. I'm also tied to Weekend-Only Geocaches. The only ones I can do after work have to be close one stars, but I like to leave the easy ones for my son.


    So if someone likes to team up for a nice & challenging Weekend Dayhike/GeoCache, I could consider it if is not a virtual or a micro.

  9. I just had a similar experience today, close to the last cache of the day. I saw a couple engaged in an "anatomy" lesson, I quickly realized what was going on, so I treated it like a Bear encounter, I made them aware of my presence and I gave then some time before I closed into the area. I guess they were glad I did not make of an embarrassing situation even more awkward one.
