1 13 July 2011 DudleyGrunt Found it

2816.  This was my final stop heading from home to summer camp to meet our troop for the rest of the week.  I was mostly looking at stopping at some OCUS, TC and NC caches along the way.  This was the 3rd closest unfound OCUS cache to home, so was glad to be albe to log it.

Nice little park and I had fun finding the answers and increasing my Pickle IQ.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
