Liberty University Family Weekend

It was one of those weekends low on geocaching numbers but high on fun and family time. My wife, granddaughter and I drove from Greensboro, NC up to Lynchburg, Virginia for Family Weekend at Liberty University. Our youngest daughter is a freshman there. We drove up and were able to attend a few classes with her, visit the typical campus sites like the cafeteria, gym, ice skating rink, the indoor pool and so forth. One of the highlights of the visit was the Liberty - Presbyterian football game. We weathered the rain to see most of the game. Liberty won! The other highlight was going up on Liberty Mountain to the Snowflex facility where the girls rented tubes for snow tubing. This complex is the first built in the continental US and it is great. You can snowboard or ski or you can drink coffee from the comfort of the lodge. It is a really nice addition to the campus. Last time I was here I hit the trails around the Snowflex and found two caches. On this trip I only hit one of the "Off your rocker" caches at the Cracker Barrel. Sunday we enjoyed getting to see the folks at the Nuevo Amanecer Baptist Church, a Spanish-speaking church on campus. Lynchburg has its share of caches and is located near the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you like the adventure of the trail and can part with the urban caches a while, the surrounding area has a lot to offer the geocaching addict. Check it out!
