Epic Journey East coast and back

Jump to last reply

The trip starts from home in central Oregon. We drive about 6 hours to Winnemucca Nevada.
I have a geocaching friend who will let us park free in a fenced lot in WNN.
We board the Amtrak California Zephyr a little after 7PM. We have a roomette from WNN to Chicago.
We have 4-5 hours in Chicago before we get on the Lake Shore Limited in Business Class seats.
The train arrives in Erie a little after 7AM. I have found a good restaurant not far from the Enterprise car rental so we can have a good breakfast before the car rental opens at 9AM Sat 5/20.
We will attend a geocaching Mega Event in Alegany State park in western NY near Salamanca .
Spend the night in Olean. On Sunday we go to church in Perry where a pastor friend of mine is now living and preaching. From there we go to see friends and family east of Rochester.
Tuesday we head east (probably NYS Thruway) to Albany and then into southern VT to find a geocache.
Next we go through southern NH to find another geocache and then into Southern Maine.
Wednesday we find geocaches in coastal Maine including an EarthCache near a lighthouse.
We then go west of Boston and find a couple of geocaches in Massachusetts. From there we find caches in Rhode Island (Providence). We finish the day in Groton CT. There are a couple of caches near the sub base. Staying in eastern CT Wednesday night and western CT Thursday night.
