Description   EN   

This cache can be a stand alone cache or part of the planetary trail that I have created over the years. You will be seeking the marker for the planet Earth.

I had to change this to an offset cache. The location was not surviving the weed eater of the grounds crew. Take the first two numbers on the marker and multiply by two-thirds. The BIT is this number of feet north of the marker just off the trail a couple of feet.

The B&A Trail is a park and is open from dawn to dusk (notice the limited hour attribute). Wink

The B&A Trail is about 14 miles long and paved with asphalt. It parallels MD Route 2 most of its length. There is a connector at the northern end to put you on the BWI Trail which circles BWI Airport. The B&A Trail is a very popular trail for walkers, runners, inline skating and bicycling. I walk/run a portion of it for exercise starting at the Marley Station Mall in Glen Burnie.

Parking is available very near the cache location. Remember to bring a camera or something to write with.

You must physically visit this location to take credit for this cache.

The confimation code is at the bottom of the bit cache itself. It may be easier to take a photo of it. Please do not try to remove it. Thanks!

I changed this cache to an offset due to the previous location not surviving the grounds crew.

I like this series. Decided to hike and geocache today. Started at the end of the trail near Dorsey Road. So far so good.

Rode up today and enjoyed a fairly open trail.  Got GZ and made the find quickly went to read the password and realized I didn't have my glasses- was able to back up enough to read it!  Thanks for placing this one- I'm glad P & R decided to update these cool markers.

I decided to leave a bit early tonight to get to the gym so I could find the last two unfound OCNA caches in this area. This was a peaceful walk before heading down the road. Thanks for the cache!

I came out this morning, to work on NativTxn's "Hiders and Seekers Unlimited" contest.

There was something really familiar about GZ. ;-)

Thanks and Happy Trails!
