    I'm going to step up here and take on maintaining a few. Just updated my profile info so, ORR, it's there.
    I'm in Harrisburg so Lake Poinsett is a given. My son is in Wynne so I'll take Village Creek as well. I'm there at least once a week anyway. Parkin isn't far off my normal running so I can take that too. My daughter is just minutes from Lake Frierson and Crowley's Ridge so I can take backup for those since I'm there at least once week too. I'll take on Louisiana Purchase, Mississippi River and Delta Heritage Trail. I'm from Helena so I can run by those when I go to or come back from there.
    Ive thoroughly enjoyed every park cache I've found to date and I'd like to be sure to keep them going. I have all the clues saved as personal notes on each cache page. Just need contact info for each location.
    You can't get there from here.
    ...
    Wanna bet?

    Thanks for your willingness to serve! Please email me at oldriverrunner@hotmail.com with your geocaching name (if not mailman72432), your real name, and your email address and I will get you on our volunteer list, either as primary or backup.

    HELP!

    The Louisiana Purchase ParkCache (GC1C7CN) has been disabled since last October because it is missing. I emailed both the volunteer and the backup for this cache just after that, to ask them to do some much needed maintenance on it and I have not received a reply from either. So I have to assume that they are no longer active or willing to serve as volunteers for this cache. So, is there someone out there who would be willing to visit this cache site and replace the ParkCache? (Don't forget the clues! )

    I am just asking for a one-time maintenance job on this one, so don't hold back if you might be willing to do it but don't want to commit to be the volunteer for this one on a continuing basis. However, if you are willing to volunteer to do maintenance on this cache on a continuing basis, I will be happy to put your name on our list of volunteers!

    If anyone can take care of this one, and relatively soon, please let me know by posting a reply here or by emailing me at oldriverrunner@hotmail.com.

    Also,

    The Jenkins' Ferry ParkCache (GC1DTZ8) is also missing and has just been disabled. I have emailed the volunteer for this cache (there is no backup) to ask them to check on the cache and replace it. If I don't hear back from him, is there someone else who can go by there and replace it?

    For those of you who do Facebook, feel free to share these requests for help there. But have them post their replies here on this website, or at least email me and I will post the information here.

    Thanks!

    I want to express my thanks to Jim & Sandy Fryar (Likestocanoe) for stepping up and replacing the Jenkins' Ferry ParkCache last week. THANK YOU! It is folks like those two who make ArkGeo and geocaching in Arkansas so GREAT!

    HELP!

    The Cossatatot River ParkCache (GC1CFBE) has not been found since July 2019 and has apparently gone missing. It has also received a low Health Score warning email from Geocaching HQ. I have emailed both the volunteer and the backup for this cache (Jimmy Cobb and Jerry Turner, respectively) to ask them to do some much needed maintenance on it, but I don't know if they are active geocachers anymore or are willing to address the problem with this geocache. While waiting on a response from them, I am going to assume that they are not active and am taking contingency action. So, is there someone out there who would be willing to visit this cache site and replace the ParkCache? (Don't forget the clues! )

    I am just asking for a one-time maintenance job on this one, so don't hold back if you might be willing to do it but don't want to commit to be the volunteer for this one on a continuing basis.

    If anyone can take care of this one, and relatively soon, please let me know by posting a reply here or by emailing me at oldriverrunner@hotmail.com.

    Also, since I don't do Facebook, if someone would post this request on the ArkGeo FB page, that would be much appreciated. If anyone is willing to step up and help, have them get in touch with me at the email listed previously. Thanks!

    Thanks Pat & Judy! I know it is a long distance for you, so if you do not get there this weekend, let me know. I was considering a trip there next week if no one had responded.
