20 February 2014 Escaping the Cold
Mega events have a way of changing the caching landscape of an area. The changes aren't usually good. Between burned-out local cachers who gave all their free-time for months to prepare for the event and a pile of cheap vacation caches, an area can be a little scared by the experience. We wanted to visit Athens, Ohio before MOGA came through and changed the area. After a stop in Zanesville for some walking and a few finds we were on our way to Blue Rock State Forest and an older cache near the firetower. The nearly 80-year old fire tower is still standing and has open access to the stairs for climbing. It was a thing of beauty. The object of my climbing desire.
