A cool story. Our church youth group went hiking on the Appalachian Trail this spring and we got to this overlook and started exploring. Someone from below the overlook yelled that they think they found a geocache. A couple of us went down there and look and sure enough it was a geocache. I signed it. When I went back home, I told mom and dad about it and of course my dad, who is addicted to geocaching, had to try and figure out which cache it was. It turned out to be GCGDTX - Black Rock Supply Cache.19. What is your favorite subject in school?
