We’ve just booked for a 4 night short break in New York City in February.
We’d already checked the caches there and there are not that many and with all the hustle and bustle that is NYC, we don’t expect that many finds. The trip is about more than caching though, so not a problem.
It will be good to tick off two new US States for us though as we fly into Newark, so can get the cab driver to make a “small diversion” on the way to the hotel so we can get New Jersey as well as the New York state caches on Manhattan.
We don’t have any Memory Map maps of the area so had a look on the internet to see if there was an easy way of getting Google Maps into Memory Map and using that. It turns out it’s very easy to do and I had one up and running in minutes, thanks to the excellent tutorial at this link. A quick PQ of the nearby caches and I soon had all the nice geocache icons overlaid in my new map – perfect!
There are quite a few puzzle caches so we’ll be working our way through the ones we are likely to encounter in the meantime.
Can’t wait to go now as we’ve been waiting for the children to be a bit older for a return visit to NYC. Needless to say they are both REALLY excited!
