San Antonio’s a Hotbed (Literally!) of Geocaching

Paul’s daughter was visiting a friend in San Antonio this weekend,so Dana decided to come along and make a caching weekend of it.  We picked up 61 new caches and logged 14 DNFs in a little over two days,which wasn’t bad considering the sweltering summer heat.  We cached in the middle of the day,beginning from about noon and going until the sun went down around 7:30 or 8 p.m.  Many of our caches were in series hidden by Jerry Czerwinski (JMCz),a veteran who has two long strings of hides along local bike routes,including one monster series of more than 70 caches.

It’s interesting to follow caches left by a single owner because you get a sense of the person’s preferences over time.  JMCz mixes some truly evil placements with a lot of straightforward stuff.  Very little of what he hides can be called a park &grab,but many require no more than a couple of minutes of searching.  Then,just when you build up a veneer of confidence,he hits you with an absolute killer.  He’s also got a knack for creative containers and decoys. Thanks,JMCz,for making our weekend so interesting (and a little frustrating!).

Our favorite spot was the Liberty Bar (below),a restaurant to the north of town that was damaged in a flood many years ago and now leans precariously to one side.  Despite its tenuous appearance,the building has been judged structurally sound and shored up with many fixes and improvements over the years.  Better hurry to get a look at this one;the Liberty Bar is moving to a new location downtown early next year and it’s not clear who will take over this building.
