1 07/08/2012 Grunriese Found it

I was in the area doing one of Pennsylvania's oldest caches, and spotted this Virtual in my GPSr not too far away.  I had always wanted to visit the museum (when it was open), but I had to settle for an outside look.  Everything is overgrown.  It's really a shame.

2632.  FTF!!! And my last cache of a long day.  This was really one of my 3 primary destinations, along with 2 of the Cache Across Maryland hides, but I found caches in 3 startes (MD, DE, PA) and on four listing sites (OCUS, TerraCaching, Navicache, and GC.com).  With this find, my nearest unfound OCUS cache is now In a Pickle by Apex (OU01D6) at 115 miles from home.  Seems silly not to have done it, while up near Philly, but I was running out of time to get somewhere else.

Now, about the Franklin Mint Museaum.  It was bit eery and eerie and felt like an episode of History Channel's "Life After People", as if they simply closed up one day and never came back.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
