My profile at geocaching web site:
I have been placing cards from the game Candyland http://www.hasbro.com/candyland/ into various geocaches scattered about the country. Most cards have been placed in caches in northern New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, northern Virginia, eastern Tennessee, and northern Florida. All cards are heading to the Adirondack region of New York state. If a card is already in the Adirondack region, please move it to another cache also in the Adirondack region. Someday, while geocaching in the Adirondacks, I hope to find one of my cards. When I retrieve a card, I will take it out of circulation. You can track the progress of cards on this site. Depending on how long this takes, there may be a reward for the first card I retrieve. Some cards are from the game I Spy, since I ran out of Candyland cards.
These maps show some of the major roads in the area depicted, particularly roads I have travelled on. Roads are in red, black lines are railroads.
This map shows Dayton, Tennessee on the left center, Chattanooga in the bottom left, and the travels of 3 of my cards, two of which went to the same cache, and two which went backwards! Future maps will only show cards that have made it to the Adirondacks.
This map shows two cards that have arrived in the Adirondacks. Both cards are red, but shown in blue so they stand out. Lake Ontario is the blue oval shape on the upper left, longer red lines are interstates including 81, 88, 87, 78, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
This map shows the movement of most cards as of January 2005 that have moved anywhere in the US. Some cards have gone in the wrong direction! Note that there are two lines coming out of virginia one going north (red) and one going south (purple). Cards started in Tennessee, New Jersey, and Virginia.
These maps were made with my map program, Waypoint based Map Maker.
Here are some of the cards that have been reported. Only cards that arrive in the Adirondacks will have a complete listing. Many more cards have been placed and moved than are listed here.

I have placed about 100 cards so far. Some of the caches I have placed cards in have disappeared, and I'm sure many others have been lost. Only 5 cards have arrived in the Adirondacks as of August 8, 2005. But I'm sure there are still many out there waiting to be found!
