You might want to read the NovaNikki cache page first, which explains how Ancient Lake is a fraud, and wasn't really placed in Janunary 2001. It was really placed in December 2001, and has an obvious typo in the date placed field. Nothing sinister going on there, just a typo that the cache owner is never going to fix. That doesn't stop people from driving hundreds of miles out of their way to make geo-pilgrimages to it though. :ph34r:

 

 

Hmmm, that kinda sucks, to me it looks like it was place in 10/01 instead of 01/01 but either way it is not correct, Thanks for that info.

 

Well, the date says what the date says, and people drive hundreds of miles out of their way to use it for a January, 2001 Jasmer find, so whatever floats their boat. Most people, I doubt are even aware of the controversy. It's just that the cache owner, for whatever reason, refuses to change his typo. Unless of course you want to believe he hiked out in the woods on a Tuesday in January, and left a cache sitting there for 11 months and one day before joining Geocaching.com, and submitting it. :P

 

In addition to NovaNikki, the REAL oldest active cache in Ohio has a cache page that mentions the fraudulent placed date on Ancient Lake. Which is not only beloved for it's rare January 2001 placed date for Jasmer, but also holds the phony title of oldest active cache in Ohio.

We had one like that around here, until one of the Reviewer/Lackey changed the date to the orginal hide date.

 

Oh boy, that would be brutal if that happened. All the people fawning over their prized January 2001 find, and finding the allegedly "oldest active cache in Ohio". By the way, I'm familiar with this situation since I live about 350 miles away, and own a 2001 mini-Jasmer challenge. The other available January 2001 caches are in Massachusetts about the same distance away in the opposite direction. :P I'm thinking this guy has to be seeing these two caches with write-ups dissing his placement date and obvious typo, and will eventually do the right thing. Hasn't happened yet though.

 

I'm gonna pass but will probably pick up Burlington Creek instead.

I'm late to the party and see a victim cache owner has already been selected, but since you're coming right by it, might I suggest the oldest active cache in Washington, GCD, which I happen to now own. I'd also be happy to meet up with you while you are in the Bellevue/Cascades area; you'll be driving within 5 miles of my house. I could take you to my personal favorite, Turntable.

 

If you change your route across the great state of Washington and take the uber-scenic North Cascades Hwy (aka Hwy 20, much sexier than I-90), might I suggest the "world's most scenic parking lot," Cascade Pass Trailhead, also one of mine.

 

And since you're tripping across Washington, you might want to check out our very cool Washington State Parks Centennial GeoTour - 100 caches in 100 parks for 100 years - which has a geocoin prize for finding 50 and 100 of the caches. Several of them are along your chosen route, including my Iron Horse - Hyak.

 

Which reminds me, your trip route and timing is close to the Groundspeak Block Party and my Going APE mega-event, - are you planning to attend?

 

Okay, my work here is done. :lol:

Thanks for the post, I actually did GCD back in 2011 during the first APE event and just checked and my log is pretty lame but it was a very nice hike with some great views. I was also lucky enough to find the original before it was muggled as well as all the caches leading up to it. GCD is a must do for anyone attending the APE event.

 

As for the 100 parks, I've actually been looking at that trying to plan a route to do 50 in 1 day. As I live in Vancouver I'm sure I'll do them sometime this year. We actually have a cool program you might want to check out about 3 hours from Vancouver called Gold Country. For every 24 caches you find you get a geocoin that looks like a gold bar, very cool. Don't tell my victim but on my next day off I plan on going out and picking up another 40 or so of the caches (I have 9 so far) so I can get 2 of the geocoins as I was pondering what a nice gift would be for him taking me to Beverly and what better than a coin that can not be bought.

As for the block party and APE event, not this year as I usually have to work weekends and I've used up a lot of favours for the trips I already took.

 

I think by the time we get near Seattle we will be pretty spent but I'm only a couple of hours north of you so next time I plan of driving down I'll let you know and if you feel like heading north I'd be happy to drive you around to the cool caches up here, Im doing the Gold Country this Tuesday and if you can make it to Vancouver by 5 am you could get a gold bar or 2 of your own.

Well, it would still show as January 2001 in your stats, and you wouldn't be alone in seeking it out from hundreds (or thousands) of miles away, almost always with no idea there is a controversy. OK, I am done hijacking your thread. Unless someone quotes me. Then I will proceed to rant about Ancient Lake again. :P

Why don't you buy a $3000 car and sell it for $2000 when your trip is done? That might be the cheapest route... That, or sending a car to your starting point by auto transport.

 

I pondered that but that would be quite the hassle especially trying to get insurance, I did find a rental that is costing me $460.00.
