ISQ Finds

Recommended Posts

Now that the Spirit Quest has moved to ND and MN we need more hiders up this way. NDSQ #4 should be up and going in a week or so. In few week I'll wonder across the Red and hide a MNSQ or two.

 

I would like to invite the folks in Minnesota to hide SQ caches in their state and to wonder over here to the ND and hide a few. Just drop me a line.

Have to say that we really enjoyed finding #404 yesterday, near Brookville. It was a beautiful place.

WE got two more the other weekend so that puts us at 291 and Alexis 7 more which puts her at 78. Hopefully we will get down this weekend and get a few more so we can join the ranks of those with 300 finds.

I take it that the Minnesota Spirit Quest is SDT approved. Will there be a bookmark list created for them?

By the way, I was in Virginia a week ago, where I have a cemetery geocache. (It's our family plot and maintained by my mother.) I had been considering making it Virginia Spirit Quest, but Virginia isn't exactly a pioneer state. (The part that I was in sort of was, in the Daniel Boone model.)

 

Any thoughts?

Sure it is!

 

My family were pioneers there back in the 1640's. B)

 

My thought is it may not be what would be considered 'pioneer' country, but there is gobs of history there. I think it would be great.

At least I had the foresight to take a few photographs of the cemetery. As I said, it's our family plot on my father's side, going back to my great-great-grandfather. I can probably work a little geneology into the listing. I hope that doesn't sound too self-serving.

Of the many great things ISQ did for Geocaching, one of them is it brought ‘branding’ to Geocaching. If I see “Indiana Spirit Quest” in the title, I know what I’m in for. Love it or not, you know right away what to expect. I’m going to a cemetery or burial area. The cache page has well researched information and photographs that are meaningful for the location. In general the finds are straightforward; the prize is the location and not so much the cache itself. As cache density continues to rise and planning what caches to do takes a little more time, it’s nice to be able to know just from a title of a cache I can add it to my list for the day.

 

Overall my logs on Spirit Quest finds do not truly show my deep appreciation for this series. Some days the stops just flow one into the other, but I really do appreciate all of them and stop at every ISQ I can.

 

Many thanks again to Lead Dog for planting the seed and setting and maintaining the bar of high standards. Thanks to The Shadow for the generous gifts. Thanks to all hiders of Spirit Quest caches.

Does anyone have any favorite ISQ's that you've found or hidden? Perhaps one where you like the cache page story, or liked the view or the hide itself was unique? or whatever? Let us know. Nominate your favorites, and why...

 

The most meaningful for us is ISQ #400:

 

SCOTT'S CACHE

Favorites? Made me have to dig a bit. One of them has to be Indiana Spirit Quest #535: For the Children . The posted coordinates are very close to a family plot of mine and not too far away from my great uncle who was killed in action in WWII.

Another one would have to be the one in the Lagro cemetery. Actually both.

 

Indiana Spirit Quest #395: Double Your Pleasure is just a little ways away from my uncle's grave. He served with the 82nd Airborne in WWII and earned the Bronze Star. He parachuted in during the D-Day invasion.

Then just down the hill in the old part of the cemetery is my big family plot on my dads moms side of the family. Indiana Spirit Quest #23: Drink More Milk. I guess the ISQ's that bring back personal memories are the one's that have the most meaning.

 

I know I must vote for one. So I would vote for #395. I just always loved this cemetery.

LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER COPY CAT SERIES HAS SPRUNG UP! THEY CONTACTED US A SHORT WHILE AGO, THEN NEVER HEARD FROM THEM AGAIN...CHECK IT OUT:

 

COLORADO SPIRIT QUEST

 

Pretty cool!

 

Pretty cool indeed. Been to some of those areas before caching evolved. My question is what are you doing to that tree? ;);)

I just wanted to let everyone know that the Hickory Grove cemetery here in Tippecanoe County was vandalized over the past weekend. I had placed a microcache in this cemetery a few years ago and it became an ISQ. A while back the cache was lost and the posting archived.

 

This cemetary had been restored a few years back and contains a small plot of very old markers. The markers were pushed over and broken. A neighbor has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators. It is my sincere hope that they find and prosecute whoever did this. If any of you have any information, please pass it along to the authorities.

Hickory Grove Cemetery vandalized

 

Updated: July 2, 2008 06:37 PM

 

SHADELAND, Ind. (WLFI)--The Union Township Trustee and Advisory Board met on Wednesday to discuss plans for the restoration of a vandalized cemetery. Several grave markers at Hickory Grove Cemetery, near Shadeland, were destroyed on Monday night. Monuments were pushed off their bases. Tombstones were kicked over and broken into pieces.

 

The historic cemetery has some headstones dating back to the early 1800s. Township Trustee Bob McKee said they have money put aside for cemetery restorations. He said the township hopes to have Hickory Grove repaired in the fall.

 

"The township will then intend eventually, maybe this fall sometime to have this same firm that did it originally, come back put those stones back up the way they were," McKee said.

 

Businessman John Basham owns property adjacent to the cemetery. Basham is offering a 10-thousand dollar reward for an arrest and conviction in the case.

What a shame, I hope they find the punks that did this.

177 + 32 = 209 We finally broke 200. :angry::D

 

We felt that by doing the ISQ’s on this day we would be doing our part in remembering and honoring them.

 

We are also celebrating our 3rd anniversary caching. And we are proud and relieved that our son was honorable discharged this year after spending 4 years in the Navy.
