    Default Geocaching in Boston????

    Have any of you Geocached in Boston? We might be taking my Girl Scouts on a day trip to boston via train.

    Wouldn't that be a cool cache event trip kind of thing? A whole bunch of us load up on the Downeast...ah to go caching in Boston. Hmmm......
    I said WHAT!!! You just took me the wrong way......

    I have always thought it would be cool to take the train to Boston and go caching. Keep us posted.

    Maybe if there is enough interest we can do this some time. Sounds cool to me.

    I checked into Boston caches a few years back while my son was there for surgery. I was surprised how few caches were in the city at that time. I did get one at the boston common, which is now archived. There probably are more now, and there were some on the outskirts then, but I expected a bunch I could have walked to.

    Just went on gc.com and found a bookmark list called Boston Visitor's Guide by g-o-cashers. It was designed for "out of town visitors". There are also links to 2 more lists. So there is a start.

    A very timely thread since I'm going to Boston in June for a National Fire Protection Association Conference and Expo and of course I figured I'd grab at least one or two caches while there . . . I do have to admit however that reading one cache with a warning to not grab the rat trap already makes me appreciate the caches we have here in Maine.

    With the recent incident there I would think that caching wouldn't be the smartest thing to be doing.

    Just avoid the blinking cartoon characters giving folks the fingers and you should be all set, right?

    Personally, I'm not sure which is scarier . . . folks not thinking about seeking permission to put up the electronics . . . or folks not noticing the electronics even though they were in place for several weeks . . . makes one wonder . . . what if?

    And how about the idea that this was done in 9 other cities in the US and not noticed at all!
