I have a government mandated holiday coming up on October 9th and I was thinking of tackling the WNW (Westminster to New Windsor) Geotrail (http://coord.info/GC72J5F) in Carroll County by bike. Does anyone else want to dust off their two-wheelers (or big tricycle if that's your thing) and join me for a day of caching?

Here are the proposed details:

Date: Monday October 9th
Time: 9:30 AM - 3:00 PM
Meeting spot: TBD - need to talk to the CO about parking

Post here if you're interested.

I have a doctor's post-surgical appointment on the 25th of this month. If he clears me, I would love to join you. I went to school at Western Maryland College many decades ago, so it'll be like old home week (with the emphasis on old). My wife bought a new bike for me last Christmas for the express purpose of trail riding in search of Geocaches, but, to date, it hasn't left my closet yet. :roll: 8O

I am also off this day and would be interested in a bike ride through Winchester in PG county.

Is there a place in PG county named Winchester that has a biking geotrail too? :oops:

If so, that's not the trail I'm thinking of. I'm planning on doing the Westminster to New Windsor Trail up in Carroll County. I recently solved all 30+ puzzles and could use some skilled cachers to help me find them and the 4 bonus caches that go along with it.

We are talking about the same trail (look back at your puzzle answers). I have also solved the 33 puzzles and will fudge it to fit in with the skilled cachers :D
It looks like parking would be at the Walmart or Baugher's.

Gah! Sorry! It's too early and the caffeine hasn't kicked in yet. I'll be sure to be plenty caffeinated on the 9th!

Ummm, Baugher's, yumm. They have the best Apple pie anywhere, and their chicken livers are to die for as well.

Now you see that? That's the difference between a government contractor and a government civilian! You call it "government mandated holiday" and I just call it a "government holiday." It's all the sweeter because neither my wife's office nor my daughter's high school gets the day off. It's truly a magic day for me.

I might join in. A bunch of us are spending the weekend at Deep Creek Lake, so it depends on when we get back. Also depends on solving a bunch of puzzles. Also depends on figuring out if my tires have dry-rotted since the last time I got on my bike.

Nomaland and myself biked this WNW trail this pst weekend. We parked one truck near the first two caches (grocery store parking lot) and the other truck near the last cache. You can park within 100 feet of #33 safely. Start at number one and ride back. Wait until the end of the day to hit the bonus caches and I wouldn’t recommend riding to them on a bike. The road is very busy and dangerous in a few places on the shoulder.
