If you havenít visited Boiling Springs EarthCache (GC5BP1B), September MnGCA Cache of the Month, come and visit it on October 12th and earn an International EarthCache Day 2014 Souvenir from Groundspeak to add to your collection.

As COs of Boiling Springs, we will be at this EarthCache between 3-5pm with a log sheet for people to sign. For those that sign the log, you will not be required to send in answers to be qualified to sign the cache page as "Found" and you will have earned the special International EarthCache Day 2014 Souvenir.

Fun . . . don't know how that day will turn out, but a good reminder to visit this cache that day or when I can!

I was planning on doing this EarthCache this Sunday. I'll try to be there when you're there.

Not sure how I initially became aware of this cache a month or so ago but decided then this was the cache I wanted to do for International EarthCache Day. So nice to see CO's will be there. Can't wait to experience it!

Oh, carp! I headed out the door this morning knowing I was near a milestone, and I knew Boiling Springs wasn't too far outside of my 1000 cache PQ "donut," so I hit it this afternoon. Still, a great visit - been there before looking for traditionals that've been there in the past, but still enjoy visiting. Found out how to make my phone make videos - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zW_0GxSMkn4&feature=share and then just spent about 10 minutes sitting there just enjoying the moment. I grew up just outside of Yellowstone, so this reminds me of the mud pots, but with clear water and without the smell of hellfire and brimstone. Also, don't watch my video or visit the site with a full bladder!

Great turnout. There were 44 signatures on the log and many brought their families. There were probably around 70 people that came out between 3-5pm to see Boiling Springs and there were other that came out earlier in the morning. As COs, we are happy that so many people were able to check it out and hope the interest in this EarthCache continues to spread so more people have a chance to check out this unique environmental phenomenon.

Two of Hearts knew about this before it became an earth cache. One day not long ago we were in the area. He said I got something interesting to show you guys. Butcher and I got are first look at this interesting location. We will have to return to make the earth cache visit. Very aggressive mosquito population there as well.
