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 Venus. Hope you're paying attention to the fact that this is an offset cache. Create an azimuth by taking the first two numbers on the Venus marker and multiply by three and a half then minus 180. Project a waypoint 380 feet on you result azimuth. The BIT is located there. This is mainly because the planets Mercury, Venus and Earth are to close together to keep Venus directly on the trail. That is how I decided on the name of this cache.

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 found 18 caches today. 17 of them are mine. I was out on a maintenance run today checking on some of my caches. 11 on the Groundspeak site, 4 on the OCNA site, 2 on the Terracaching site and 1 on the now defunct Garmin Opencaching site (which I removed and will reuse).

This cache is there and in great shape. Come seek it.

This one was about 150 feet from the Garmin site cache that I removed and will reuse.

Finally made it over to log the CO's 3 new solar system Bit Caches. This is a great series that spotlights a little know "attraction" in Glen Burnie.

I had some trouble with the azimuth, but have written to the CO. After visiting the initial coords I came up with, I decided on a more likely location and made the find.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
