against a dark plastic object. A tiny tube with an official geocaching label peeks out from behind tree leaves. It’s hooked onto a twig-sized branch with a zip-tie. We remove it and unwind the log. The list of previous cachers extends back more than 2.5 years, first signed on May 12, 2015. We add our names, re-hide the cache and hurr y back to the car, ready for our next find: postadventure pizza. While savoring a garlic knot, I browse the geocaching map around the Lower Shore. What I see intrigues me, and I know what my next geocaching adventure will be. Near Sharptown, a geocacher has hidden a series of mystery caches, which together form a boat when viewed on the map. If my fellow geocacher made the effort to perfectly place this 35+ cache series, then I’m surely going to try my best to complete it. Challenge accepted.
