Description   EN   

Over the last few years, Howard County has been working to "improve" the appearance of the Route One corridor.  Part of their plan has included adding more sidewalks, but in some areas, it hasn't been practical for them to be continuous, resulting in sidewalks to nowhere.  Of course, now I tend to noticed other places where the sidewalk ends.

This has brought to mind Shel Silverstein’s poem, “Where the Sidewalk Ends”.  Of course, I’ve also thought that this might make for a good series of relatively easy caches. 

This is the fifth in the series.  sfcchaz published #3 and #4.

You can easily park near the end of the sidewalk.

Long before the publication of Shel Siverstein's poem, 20th Century Fox released a movie staring Dana Andres and Gene Tierney with the same name.  The 1950 film-noir / crime story revolved around Det. Sgt. Mark Dixon, who "wanted to be something his old man wasn't: a guy on the right side of the law. But Dixon's vicious nature will get the better of him."

Logging Etiquette: Geocache hiders sometimes go through a great deal of planning to place their caches. As a result, they'd like to hear your feedback on whether you liked or disliked any aspect of the hide, or if you feel that some cache maintenance is required. Single word, acronym, or emoticon logs may be easier when you have a lot of caches to log, but it doesn't tell the hider or other finders anything about your adventure (or lack thereof) in finding the cache. Please keep this in mind when entering your log.

I had the day off today and wanted to clean up some of the new GS caches in the area. I also wanted to get this one while I was out there. Nicely hidden. 

One thing of note that has nothign to do with the cache. It seemed that there was an abandoned SUV near GZ. No tags on it and some damage. I wonder if it was stolen and left there? TFTC

FTF!

 

I saw this publish this morning, but I was at an agility trial with the geo-dog, Princess, down in Millersville, and couldn't leave at the time to go for the cache yet. Luckily, I was still able to get it later this evening. I came home, got all the dog stuff unloaded, and was finally able to bribe the husband to drive me over to the cache (I was tired). Luckily, the hint helped out a lot, since my GPS has been acting wonky lately. It said I still had 40 to 45 feet left, once my geo-senses took over and told me I was at GZ. I'll just blame the solar flares for the recent act ups. 

 

Thanks for the new cache!
