Logs from cachers:
Drove up with Netinator and Diggin’UpBones for the Berea Geotour. OMG. WOW. Hiding in plain sight, Fantastic. I thought the other hides were good but this one is GREAT. Definitely a favorite. SL-TFTC — rambetta
Cool!!! We came prepared with a few different “containers”. We’ve done one similar in West Virginia, so we thought we knew what to expect. Well done and lots of fun! — wespen2010
It was great to be caching on this beautiful fall day. Three of us left early this morning for this two-hour drive to start our journey here on the Berea GeoTour. I already had three from the tour on a previous visit, so I was excited to see all the different types of hides. I was not disappointed in any of the cache hides. I think that each cache deserves a Favorite point. I just loved this cache. Very nicely done. — netinator
