Geowoodstock, that massive geocaching event cache is going to be within caching distance for most Toronto Area Geocachers next year! The event is being held in Warren, PA – right near Alleghany State Park. This is along the New York / Pennsylvania border and is about a 3 hour drive from Toronto. The event will be held on July 2, 2011 and should make for a great long weekend destination.
