We’re continually picking up snippets of information related to the Maryland Municipal League Geocache Trail.

Three new Krispy Kreme donut franchises are opening in Phoenix and to celebrate they are holding a ‘Glazed Treasure Hunt’. Yep, you heard right. Geocaching with Krispy Kreme donuts… ahh… heaven… :) Click here for more.

Geocaching In Fredericksburg, VirginiaSep 18, 2008

Last week I (go_man) had the good fortune to visit Fredericksburg, Virginia. This gave me the chance to get together with a local Geocacher and to get out and do some caching in Virginia!

The Fredericksburg area of Virginia is steeped in history and gives you the opportunity to walk where American Presidents and famous Generals once walked. It was near here that the first president of the United States, George Washington, once roamed as a young boy. It was also near here that the North and South armies of the American Civil War came face to face in battle. This area, which is located about halfway between Washington D.C., which was the capital of the Union, and Richmond, which was the capital of the Confederacy, was the major site of five Civil War battles.

Downtown Fredericksburg still retains that small town feel. You can enjoy a leisurely stroll through it’s tree line streets. As you walk along you are sure to be tempted by the many restaurants and specialty shops.

Prior to visiting Fredericksburg I contacted the Fredericksburg Geocachers asking if there were any local cachers interested in going Geocaching with me. I received quick replies from several of the members and through the course of messaging back and forth with them “smarple” and I worked out our schedules to meet up and go caching on Wednesday night.
