Cave Exploring and Geocaching with Mahlon and Jenny

This is exciting! MW is leading the way into the Search for treasures (of all kinds), mystery, and adventure, AND now expanding! Although we are still figuring things out, Mahlon and I have just posted our first YouTube videos.

We love to explore a lot of different things and places together, so we thought we would start sharing some of these adventures with you all through YouTube.   We often let ‘treasure hunting’ take us to new places, so the videos will involve these explorations!  Plus, sometimes, just from home, we’ll talk about the various treasure hunts we’ve gone or work on (which are many!) and the clues or ideas leading us to those places.

We’re just getting started, but having lots of fun.  Please join us and subscribe to the MW channel as there is much more to come.

The first video is about a cave we went to find and explore.  On our way back from the cave, we met up with a hiker who was searching for Jack O’Lantern mushrooms. You have to hear what is so special about them!  So cool! It was a great part of the trip.  That seems to be what always happen when you get out and about.  You meet different people and learn such interesting things.  It’s part of the treasure found!

The other video is about Geocaching.  Like ‘treasure hunting’, Mahlon and I use geocaching to discover neat places.  That was the case with this place in the video.  If it wasn’t for a hidden geocache there, we wouldn’t have ever visited the location.  I wrote about it before, but decided to create a video on it too.

Hope you enjoy and will join us on our YouTube discoveries!

Going to first find and then explore a Cave and Meet the Mushroom Man 🙂

Find a Geocache with us!

    🙂 I think we are a wonderful treasure hunting community too – enjoying and sharing the chase and other great treasures together…

    Great video debut, Jenny and Mahlon. Thank-you. When I was exploring caves with friends (e.g., Greencastle, PA to under MD border), we’d secure flashlights to our wrists and take backups. How far back did the cave go? To the 150 – 200 foot “charlie”?

    Looking forward to your next video.

    PS – poison ivy at 2:33 on the left?

    • Jenny Kile says:

      Thanks astree….. We had headband lights, but didn’t use them (I suppose I should have). It did only go back to ‘Charlie’, although there was a bit of a dropoff close to there….

      How cool you explored caves! You will have to tell us about it sometime…

      PS- good eyes on spotting the poison ivy…. we didn’t take notice .

    Hi Jenny and Mahlon. Enjoyed watching your videos. Wish you had brought back one of those mushrooms to demonstrate for us. That was interesting. I like to geochache also so I look forward to your adventures.

    • Jenny Kile says:

      Thanks Ramona, geocaches are great and quick little adventures to experience, aren’t they…..

      I plan on demonstrating those mushrooms next year. When we got back we searched for them behind our house– found some but they were too old. Where the cave/mushroom man was- was a bit more south than where we live and it seemed past season for them here. But next year- definitely. I want to test them out!

      Glad you are joining us!

    Looks like fun, Jenny!

    You and Mahlon look like secret agents with those shades on.

    And the mushroom man is interesting. Something tells me he put all the “good” mushrooms in the bottom of his bag. LOL!

    Mushroom is an enjoyable activity. We don’t do much of it here in the desert in Utah…but they are found up in the forests. Hunting mushrooms is a very popular pastime in Russia. LOTS of dark forests there.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • JC1117 says:

      I mean…mushroom HUNTING is an enjoyable activity.

      I don’t want you to think I was inferring something else after my previous comment. lol.

    • Jenny Kile says:

      My brother got us into mushroom hunting and I love to go out and see what we can find. In a way it’s like a treasure hunt to find certain kinds when in season…….

      It was neat to run into and talk to that guy….. part of the adventures….

    Hello Jenny. I enjoyed the videos. Seeing the old headstones are amazing. I enjoy going to the old cemeteries in Blackhawk and looking at dates of the 1800’s+. Some of the markers are fabulous! They look like trees with scrolls and animals on them. Sad to see those of babies and young children.

    • Strawshadow says:

      It looked like Jenny and Mahlon have fun just being together. I wasn’t able to pull up the second video but a comment from pdenver above brought back a sad memory. A few years ago in northern Colorado I came across an old cemetery which was filled with nothing but young children. They were all from a few months old into the teens, dozens of old headstones. A harsh reminder of the hardships and sacrifices early pioneers had to endure.

    • Jenny Kile says:

      I agree pdenver. Old cemeteries help remind us to enjoy and be truly grateful for what we have.

      @strawshadow- yes, Mahlon and I are the best of friends and love just being together and doing whatever comes along…
