I went on my first actual geo cache hunt yesterday. This one was called TreeHouse and it was the closest geo cache to my home and coordinates. I am a noob to cache hunting and thought I would have to get one under my belt sooner than later, but this one left me empty handed. I ended up walking through one of the oldest cemetaries in the State of Washington though and I plan to make another visit today. This Cemetery in Dixie, Washington has alot of history resting there, Some fantastic people who founded the area were burried there and it is a peaceful place overlooking the valley. It truely is a neat historic area. I spent an hour walking around the outer perimeter, affraid really to walk across grave sites. Finally I had to come home and retrieve the clue from the cache's web page at geocach.com. I didn't want to have to use a clue, but I did it, I now am equiped to find the first cache in my new quests. Today the step-grand kids are coming to stay overnight. I am going to take the kids up there today and have them help me search ,now that I have a few ideas where to look. I saw some places where a good picture or two can be taken.I hope i can find the cache and leave a cool bracelet for some lucky person that is cache questing, to find. Hopefull later today I will have some new pictures to share. Wish me luck!

Hello PoppaDave I am looking forward to hearing if you found the cache and to seeing any photographs that you may post from your adventure. That cememtery sounds interesting. What is the oldest grave there?

The Kershaws and Actors I believe are the oldest.There was a young fellow from the south who whistled Dixie and is know to do so,thus giving the town its name. My wife Dixie, uses WHistling Dixie as a garden name for her bussiness. My second search today, with all the kids and my son turned up empty handed, but we did find a geocache at Rooks park and I plan to show what we found in a new article. =)

Which lost horde of gold are you seeking? I am toying with the idea of writing a novel about the alleged lost horde of confederate gold following the civil war. I dare say that would be my only chance of making any moola from that horde.

I too am writing a book about the lost gold of Dorsey Baker. There are two lost stashes here in Walla Walla, one is a cavalry gold story, the other is a bank/train robbery of Dorsey Bakers gold. I have over 1000+ hrs of research on the Dorsey Baker stash, and have confirmed it happened through his diaries, so, there's 250 lbs of gold missing thatis burried/stashed somewhere near here. They captured the bandits, but not the gold, and hanged them.It was never found. I love treasure hunting, its in my blood.

I only dream of finding a historic find that makes me famous. I am currently looking for a long lost horde of gold, but my work on that case is sort of suspended a while, it is an expensive search for that so far.
