Another excellent history reminder. I enjoyed reading it on the emulator, before hand; then again on the trail. What a clever way to allow cachers to better enjoy the hike, knowing the technology wasn't going to screw them up.

This was the 1st of two WheriGos we did today.

The cartridge ran on my Oregon 450 without a hitch; and the completion code was in the save file:))

This was the first Wherigo we did on our own (the other one was with a huge group - very enjoyable too). It was great - worked perfectly with ky.m.guy leading the way. Really enjoyed the area as well as the history lesson that went along with the cache.

Sweet. An enjoyable day to do the cartridge.
The history was something I didn't know, but, glad to learn.
