Dallas-Fort Worth is home to four of the oldest caches in the world.

  • Tombstone – GC62 – I found this cache two years ago. It’s also notable as a “haunted” cache. The cache is located in a part of UTA which used to be part of a home for wayward girls. Legend has it that you can hear the cries of babies who failed to thrive. (Historic note: up until the early 1900s, 75% of babies didn’t make it to age 5.)
  • Texas Double – GC98 – Located 47 miles from my home, technically this cache isn’t located in the Metroplex. Having lived in the Metroplex for over 20 years, I consider 47 miles close enough.
  • A Walk in the Park – GCA1 – This cache is located in Breckenridge Park in Plano.
  • No Walk in the Park – GCC9 – This cache is located near Lake Grapevine.

About scribedscribbles

Like most people, I hate filling out profile pages. Who am I? Well, I’m a wife, teacher, daughter, and friend. I’m also an intellectual, an introvert, a night owl, and a bookworm. I work with struggling readers and overachievers, ages 11 to 15. I take care of students, a cat, two rabbits, friends, and my husband. I enjoy geocaching, reading, volksmarching, gardening, crocheting for charity, lecturing, science fiction, learning, and teaching. My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I am judgmental, dyslexic, sweet, overweight, graying, short, generous, loving, supportive, and chronically early to meetings. I’m afraid of snakes, putting my head underwater, heights, depths, and failure.
