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 second cache in this series.

At the posted coords, you will find a six digit number on telephone pole (ABCDEF). 

The cache is located at N 39 09.BGD W 76 47.CHJ

G = D - F

H = A x B

J = C - A

I do not reccomend parking on US Route One, right near GZ. Even though there aren't any "No Parking" signs, the area just north of the cache is a turn lane. Wherever you park, be careful out there and DO NOT plan on walking across Route One.  You may be able to park in one of the non-reserved spots in the Brentwood Manor community.  If you decide to park there be sure to obey all posted restrictions.

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.

Checked on cache and have decided to archive it.

1 03 August 2012 cycleangela Found 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. It's been almost a year since I initially tried this one, so it felt pretty good to get this one off my DNF list. I double checked my numbers before heading out, and after checking a couple of wrong spots, I finally found it. Thanks for the cache!

Checked on cache this after getting back from camping, today, and all is well and it is securely in place.

2 20 October 2011 cycleangela Didn't find it

Well, I have to admit defeat on this one. I'd stopped by a while back to get the numbers, but didn't have time to do the calcuations to get the final coordinates. I came back today with the corrected coordinates and gave it a good search, but had to make my way back home. I'd already been out to Savage Park to walk with the dog, and find my first terracache, and this was one my way back home. I'll be back!
