Hi, Sorry I haven't posted lately.

But I've been busy. I started an event to encourage the promotion of historical themed geocaches.

Recently, I wrote and published a story about this event that is linked at

I welcome your suggestions and would be pleased to see more OpenCaches with a Presidential Theme because of this event.

The Hay Creek Watershed in Berks County, just to the west of French Creek State Park, offers a number of geocaching opportunities in an unspoiled wilderness setting. The crowned jewel along the the Hay Creek is GC7F81: Stately Tree. The Stately Tree is billed as the toughest short hike in Berks County and I cannot dispute that fact. It is possible to park within a third of a mile from the cache, but I would not recommend that approach.

The story of President's Day Geocaching Massacre of 2009 actually begins in March of 2005. The Bushwackin' Schmo and I were caching along PA-82. We found a number of caches on our way North to the Hay Creek Water Shed. Once there we took one look at the approach to the Stately Tree, we decided that it was time to call it a day.

The following September, I was back in Hay Creek Watershed and made my second run at the tree.

Cool story, we are have another Presidents Day Geocaching Tour this year and everybody is welcome to attend. Opencachers, Terracachers and Noncachers.

We have a Facebook pager and my plan is for this to be bigger and better than last year.

I will present an award to the geocacher who can log the most historical and Presidential themed cachers for the day.
