Glory Farm. We've been here several times before, always enjoying the friendship of the hosts and donating a bit of time for house restoration projects. In fact, my first project (six years ago) at Glory Farm was window related.
A huge thanks to Ellen and Pat for sharing their farm with us. It feels like home.

NAFTA Trade Route Challenge. It requires that you be able to chain a series of counties together to reach from the Mexican border to the Canadian border. We're missing just one county to make it work - that's right, we need a cache in Washoe County, Nevada (Reno's county) to complete that challenge. (It's the orange one in the map).
grizzly bear is created from 100 challenge caches but there are some that we'll likely never meet the requirements. Ahead of the bear is another geoart called Run Cacher Run, created from 45 puzzle caches.
last time, I don't expect to be as prolific with blog posts, but hope we'll get one posted at least once or twice a week. We've got air in the tires, groceries in the fridge, and water in the tanks. I guess that means we're ready to go.
* An EarthCache provides an earth science lesson through a visit to a unique geological feature.
** A Virtual Cache involves gathering information at the site instead of finding a hidden container.
*** A Challenge Cache requires seekers to find an associated physical cache, and to find an additional set of geocaches as defined by the challenge owner. Challenge caches encourage geocachers to set and achieve fun goals.

I've created a monkey puzzle that will have a steel ball with the necessary combination etched on it.
The last step is to build the camouflage around this container so that muggles will see it, but not realize what it actually is. I'll finish up the rest of this one when I get home from our summer wandering. Just like a matryoshka doll, the seekers will have to navigate through multiple layers to get to their goal.
