Come on a journey to remember and commemorate the dramatic chain of events, people and places that led to the birth of our National Anthem. The story of the Anthem was shaped by events in the Chesapeake region during the War of 1812. From early 1813 until early 1815, the Chesapeake Bay and surrounding shores were the center of fierce struggles between the British and the Americans. From the burning of the White House to the Battle for Baltimore and ‘the rockets red glare,’ it’s all here for the geocaching community to enjoy in the Chesapeake region, an area encompassed by the Chesapeake Bay, coastal Virginia and the District of Columbia.
The Star-Spangled Banner (SSB) geotrail will have over 30 caches within Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. A trackable geocoin will be awarded to the first 400 geocachers, while supplies last, for locating at least 20 SSB caches. Click into the forums to read all the details.
Take part in a statewide treasure hunt!
You could win some fun prizes!

The Maryland Geocaching Society announces the formation of its 2010 Cache Across Maryland committee. This year’s seven committee members are: CoupleoCachers, DudleyGrunt, EagleBlazer, Shady, WVKiwi, Team Yinyang, and WeTheMillers. The committee is responsible for planning and executing every aspect of what has become the Maryland Geocaching Society’s most popular event.
“America in Minature”
The brainchild of Laura & Joe Tinker (Outsid4evr), the ‘Cache Across Maryland’ is a six-week long event that showcases the history and natural beauty of Maryland by placing geocaches all across the state. Each cache contains part of a code, that when put together, will lead finders to the final event, a picnic and celebration.
“I think we had a great session” said DudleyGrunt when asked how the first meeting went. MGS Vice President and committee member Shady said, “We have a terrific group of dedicated members from different areas of the state and varying levels of experience, the 2010 CAM may be the best one yet”. The Cache Across Maryland has been held every year since its inception in 2004. Keep your eyes on the forums, CAM 2010 is coming! Are you ready?
