Welcome to Florence's 80th Birthday Bash Cache

Coordinates were updated on 4 Jun 11 because the original container turned up missing after recent storms in the area. New location requires less bushwhacking and should be more secure

New Coordinates: N 39° 41.607 W 083° 59.536

This cache was placed in honor of our mother’s 80th Birthday Bash held in Hot Springs, Arkansas, on May 28, 2010. It was a festive event in which all of Florence’s family and friends from coast to coast were there to celebrate this milestone in her life. We originally wanted to place the cache in Entergy Park in Hot Springs, but couldn’t maintain it from Beavercreek, OH. Entergy Park was once a village for the employees of Carpenter Dam. Florence’s husband and our dad, Rex, worked at Carpenter Dam for over 34 years. Our family lived in the village during our childhood years. During the past decade the village was converted into a lovely park where several geocaches are hidden. We searched for a suitable location closer to home and finally discovered this wonderful vista between Beavercreek and Xenia. We hope you enjoy your visit to this peaceful location.

Regrettably, Florence died on Sunday, June 27, 2010 at her residence. She was born on May 28, 1930 in Malvern, AR. We hope this cache will help her memory to live on through the years that follow.

You’re searching for a small plastic water-tight container large enough for a log book and a few tradables. A small ink pen is in the container.

We're giving this one a terrain rating of 2 because of the steep hill you must climb to reach GZ.

Sorry to hear of Florence's passing a month or so after her 80th Birthday. I came to Xenia as an OC Admin to find some of our OC's, although I see this one is cross-listed on After a grueling uphill hike (By Ohio standards), I found the woods surprisingly open, which they didn't appear to be from the start point. Made my way to the cache area, and found it in about the 3rd place I looked. Signed in, and did not trade. When I got out of the woods, I was awarded with an amazing view (again, by Ohio standards), but had left the phone in the car, so I didn't get any pictures. I was already running late, and was looking at a 404 mile trip home (this cemetery was in fact my last caching stop before heading home). Thanks for the cache, and RIP Florence!

Oh, changing my DNF to a find, that was the other cache in the cemetery.

I love the view from the top of Valley View Cool!!

Although I'd been here before for the GC, I love coming back to this location if only for the view.  I have several family members buried in this cemetery so I always enjoy a stroll around the grounds.  

Cache was in fine shape.  

OC find #2 for me.

Although the find wasn't too difficult, the GPSr had me going to and fro for a few minutes before things settled finally down and I was where I needed to be to make the grab. This is the third time here for me----once just as I found out that the container was missing from the previous spot, once when I came here and found that I hadn't brought the updated coordinates, and today---thankfully with a smiley.

We have traveled through Malvern many times and will remember Florence next time we pass through there. The view at the top is quite spectacular---thanks for the cache and for bringing me here!

Updated coordinates on 28 Jan 11.  Moved the cache a little further into the woods to shield it from muggles.  We had received a few comments indicating it was in plain view as cachers were were approaching it.
