DAY 3 - Treasure Hunt and Closing Ceremonies
Saturday was such a silly day, starting with the annual family picture, then horsing around at the show ring for the Treasure Hunt. Signal, the Original Can of Beans and fun in the photo booth. After the closing ceremonies was more bonfires, SnakeyLicks grilled Philly Cheesesteaks, grabbing the last of the fairground caches, and a pretty amazing storm to lull us to sleep.

DAY 4 - Time to go home
Sunday dawned much cooler after the evening's storms. Fabulous that the humidity was at bay - not so fabulous that we had to pack wet camping gear. We won't mention the surfacing of more inexplicable car problems, but, really.... the dang thing is only 2.5 years old! (sigh)
Not to let it ruin our trip, we decided we had to detour to one more special cache. Ever drank water out of an Artesian Aquifer?

You may have heard of an Artesian Well before but never saw one or know how they work. This EarthCache will not only show you one, it will allow you to drink or bathe from one if you wish. When I placed it some local people came to fill containers. They told me that many people have been getting water here since at least 1936 and that the water only stopped flowing twice.
