BTMNE meets in Greenfield
BTMNE of Western MA met today, 12/13/15, in Greenfield. We played around a bit outside before checking in. We also watched the movie Freedom Writers. It provoked a great conversation about a number of topics, including race and violence. We could have talked for a lot longer than we had time for!
Hadley (South Deerfield) & Greenfield go Geocaching
Hi. On 11/15/15, our groups met together at the new Hadley meeting place in South Deerfield. We circled up and checked in. From there we set off on foot (with a couple canine companions) to search out three local geocaches (items hidden in the woods that we tracked down by GPS). After we found those, we mounted up (OK, got in the cars) and headed afield to search out a more difficult cache. We trekked uphill in Sunderland to find a the cache called "Into the Earth's Crust," which was located in a very cool cave. Lot's of fun!
