Description   EN   

I built this location and spent a great deal of time here.  Jal is very unique city in Southeastern NM.  You really should try to spend a day here. 

Even the City Park has a Lake shaped in the form of the Brand...

They have a huge history including how the name came about.  While here you just must go to the Woolworth Library and go into the Woolworth room.  Ask for Mrs. Norwood whose husband, Brian, created the Sillouette, "The Way Home" north of town, runs the Trust that attends to the Woolworth Trust.  The Story of the Woolworth's is simply amazing and for sure one of the threads that made this country.   The people in Jal are also unique.  You can just tell they want to be your friend, but need you to say hello first... Then it is on!!!  You will enjoy this town... Likely forget you found this cache... But that was my point placing it here....

1 26 March 2016 K13 Found it

I left the office in Midland this afternoon, with one thing in mind....finding this cache.  Before I could get to the thing on my mind, I had to get the oil changed in my truck and get a haircut.  Once those trivial matters were completed, I headed to Jal. (Is Jal pronounced like the first syllable of jalepeno or like the first syllable of jalopy?)

I made the 75+ mile drive from the office without issue, stopping for a few 'dirttalk' caches on the way.

Once I arrived at the location, I quickly made the find.  I grabbed the cool FTF tag, left the sawbuck copy, and signed the log with greetings from Tatum, Texas. Yes, this cache is over 500 miles from my home.

 

Thanks for the tag and for the cache. Smile
