Our group and C&C for Geocaching! See details for info!

Another GREAT event description by Tony of C&C:

"It's hard to explain to a layman what exactly is geocaching.  It's one part treasure hunt, and one part hiking, and a whole lot of fun.  Everybody seems to be doing it, so why not take advantage of a nice day with an outdoor activity. There should be some great fall foliage by then!

Last year we ran this event, and it was the most talked about event of 2011.  Because of its success, we're going to go back to Breakheart Reservation in Saugus.

We will meet at the visitor's center near the Saugus entrance at 10 a.m.  We'll start our geocaching by 10:15, so if you are late you'll have to find us!

WHAT DO I NEED?

We recommend you dress warm and comfortably, as we will be hiking different types of terrain.  Most of our journey will be on pavement, so don't fret if you just want to take a stroll!  You may also want to bring a pen, some paper for notes, water and some snacks in a backpack.

WHAT IF IT RAINS?

We're not professional hikers, so we will cancel this event if it is raining, or the terrain is really wet and muddy.  We'll send out a notice to all RSVPs by 8 a.m that morning if the weather is questionable.

If you don't have a car and would like to come, include that as a comment in your RSVP and we will do our best to coordinate transportation for everyone.

HOW TO GET THERE

Breakheart is a state reservation maintained by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR). Admission and parking are free, although parking can by difficult if it is a nice day.  We recommend the parking area behind the skating rink.

For directions and more information about the reservation, click here.

From north or south: Take Rte. 1 to Lynn Fells Parkway exit, follow Lynn Fells Parkway a short distance, take a right onto Forest Street. Park entrance is after Kasabuski Rink."

    It was a small crowd from Wakefield Weeknights, but we had a great time! It was a little rocky in the beginning, as we weren't having much luck finding the geocaches, but the weather was good, the company pleasant, and the foliage was beautiful.

    We are still a go for this morning's geocaching event. We still have over 20 people signed up so it is going to be a good time :) It's not too late to sign up!

    We're watching the weather forecast for Saturday -- right now it doesn't look good, but there's a chance it may clear up early. We'll be sending out an email no later than Saturday morning to confirm whether or not we'll be going.
