12.12.12 Souvenir

Did you earn your unique 12.12.12 Geocaching.com souvenir last week? Many people did by logging an “attended” at two of our geocaching events at PPL Preserves! It was the last time the calendar will align in our lifetime, so it was a great day to get out and celebrate the date! Enthusiastic geocachers of all ages came out for the event at the Susquehanna Energy Information Center. Most of the cachers were experienced and had found anywhere between 400-1000 caches. A few of the newbies were able to pair up with some of the experienced to learn about geocaching, which is what these events are all about! Most of the participants had attended one or more other events that day and a group from New York logged over 400 miles to attend 5 events. A Montour plant retiree and his wife along with the parents of a PPLer that I work with frequently, one of which is a retired PPL troubleman, enjoyed telling stories of their geocaching adventures.

Several of the participants then made their way from the SEIC to Lake Wallenpaupack to log their next event. While you only need to

log one event to get the unique souvenir, many cachers take advantage of these special geocaching event days to log as many as they can. The group from NY made a quick stop here at the lake before heading back north and an environmental club from Wallenpaupack High School stopped by to learn more about geocaching and completed the PPL Preserves Hidden Hydro cache while they were at the Environmental Learning Center. It was a great turnout at both preserves and all of the geocachers really seemed to enjoy themselves. We certainly enjoyed talking with them and learning more about all of their geocaching experiences! Thanks to geocaching.com for supporting these events and providing a special souvenir for participants!
