New Virtual

Postby jeffbouldin » Mon Sep 13, 2010 11:32 pm

I just wrote up my first historical virtual cache. It is for the Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville. While writing it up I noticed that it opened on Sept. 17, 1910. So I have set the cache to go active on Sept. 17, 2010. I couldn't find the time of the day the doors opened so I set it for 7am. So the question is, who is going to book a flight to get down here and be FTF? Come on! You know you want to!

Darn! I'll be camping with our troop, otherwise I'd be all over it! If I grabbed all your other OCUS caches, I'd easily break away from the other "elite" finders on here. Hmmm....

On another note - is the cardinal in your avatar pic, supposed to be wearing a hat?

And glasses! My daughter had that pic, sans hat and glasses, as her desktop wallpaper. I kept using Microsoft Paint to draw things on it and replace her wallpaper with my creations (one time it had a jet pack and crash helmet). So to get me back she went on my gc.com account and uploaded this one as my avatar. I kind of liked it so I left it.

I personally like ancient native american sites and places which has an archeological significance. Many others too. I am working up a survey to determine what any
particular people groups interest in history is.

I'm more interested in places that shaped the places we live in today. Railroad history is one of my favorites. It is probably one of the biggest things that has shaped how America developed,

I like just about any thing I was the guy (dork) that stopped to read all those old history road signs :D I have plans on developing a VC next month.

I have three Native American burial mounds listed, one Tribal boundry marker, and one listing in the Cherokee Veterans Park. The last couple of historical virtuals I have listed, one is famous Hatfield - McCoy feudist Randall McCoy's grave site, and another is about the Pound Gap Massacre at what is now knoen as the Killing Rock. Both of my last two are listed here, and we are in the process of bringing back more of my history caches to OCNA. :D

Thank you MPH, we appreciate it. Always nice write-ups too. I will try my darndest to be at the Hatfield-McCoy Mega next year. Heck, you may even see OCNA as a vendor. We'll have to see how being a vendor works out at MidWest Geobash, which there is a very high probability we're going to try out first.

Tough I am unlikely to find any of his caches anytime soon, it is nice to see MPH is back at OCus
