Description   EN   

This was previously a Dead Drop cache, but since it had only been found once in 3 years and most people have (justifiable) hesitation about logging them, I've decided to redo it and even make it available to the wider geocaching community by crosslisting it.


This cache will bring you to Zion Cemetery, founded in 1850.

This is an offset cache, so you will visit the listed coords and get some info to determine the actual location of the container.  The final is in a small, water-thight container.

Formally known as Dorsey Emmanuel United Methodist Zion Cemetery, the gates are open daily from 8 AM - 6 PM. Please be respectful and do not attempt this cache when the gates are closed and please avoid at night even if you happen to find the gates open.

At the posted coordinates, you will find a headstone with a unique family name.  You should know it when you see it, but you are looking for Mary R. and George R. George was, apparently a World War II veteran.

Depending on your eyesight or assistive device you may be able to read the information from your car.

Mary's dates are 19ab - 19cd.  George's are 19ef - 20gh.

Final is located at N 39 11.UVW W 76 45.XYZ.

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.

First cache logged on this site in several years! Like sfcchaz, I got the notification from this listing service the evening before it published on Groundspeak, but I wasn't in a huge hurry to grab FTF because I wanted to save it for a weekend when I had the opportunity to walk to the cemetery. I love it when I can find a cache without having to get in the car. It doesn't happen often any more. I did not realize there were a couple of Munzees in this area as well. I guess that gives me an excuse to return. TFTC!!

1 27 August 2018 sfcchaz Found it

Smile FTF Smile 11:10 AM. I took off a little early for lunch to come seek this one. Once in the parking lot near GZ, it started looking a little familiar. I gathered the required information and made the quick find once I determined the final coordinates. I hid it a little better than I found it.

I had an advantage on the Groundspeak (GS) geocachers as I knew about this one the night before, but I did not seek this one until 3 hours after the GS publication. I wish I knew ozzy1602 was on the way, I would have waited for him.

So guess who was the only person to seek the "Dead Drop" cache that was here previously???  WinkCool 8/30/2015.

 

Here's an excerp from the log: 

Logged my name, date and time in the logbook and took note of the log password. The headstone was classic and a dead drop cache at a cemetery is an excellent use of the pun. Thanks for the fun.
