Description   EN   

Over the last few years, Howard County has been working to "improve" the appearance of the Route One corridor.  Part of their plan has included adding more sidewalks, but in some areas, it hasn't been practical for them to be continuous, resulting in sidewalks to nowhere.

This has brought to mind Shel Silverstein’s poem, “Where the Sidewalk Ends”.  Of course, I’ve also thought that this might make for a good series of relatively easy caches.  Parking may not always be available immediately near GZ, but that will be part of the challenge.

This is the first in the series.

I do not reccomend parking on Route One, right near GZ, even though there aren't any "No Parking" signs. Wherever you park, be careful out there.

Where the Sidewalk Ends
by Shel Siverstein

There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.

Where the Sidewalk Ends

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.

Sorry for leaving it so long.  Checked on cache and decided to archive it.

2 03 August 2012 cycleangela Didn't find it

I had the day off from work today, so I had some extra time to clear off some of the local OCNA and TC caches. This one eluded me today. I can't say I get along with this type of tree though. Wink I was getting eaten alive by skeeters, so I headed up the road.

The snow was starting, traffic was building, but I decided to give this a try anyway.  Played "Frogger" and ran across Rt. 1.  Got to the end of the sidewalk and searched and searched.

I found lots and lots of thorns.  Or rather they found me, and stuck in my pants, my jacket, etc.  After about 10 minutes of searching I decided to give it a pass and went on to a TC cache.
