May 25, 1977 - 5/25/13

Do you remember where you were on May 25, 1977?  That was the day the world first heard the line featured in the title of today's puzzle cache.  Back in the days before Netflix (heck, this was before VCR's even), about the only way to see movies was on the big screen.  I saw this one in the theater at least ten times the year it came out.  From western New York:

May the 4th be with you! - 5/4/13

For today (also known to some folks as Intergalactic Star Wars Day) I'm featuring a Star Wars themed puzzle from Canada's Ontario province.  This cache was one of a group of caches published as part of a Star Wars themed event, where no one was to start searching before a specified time.  I've never participated in this kind of event, but I think planning your strategy would be fun.  Take a look at:

Back to Essex - 5/1/13

Today's Vermont puzzle is part of a series I came across when I very first started looking at puzzles far and wide to try to broaden my solving skills.  I love the CO's quote, "Caching is just about the puzzles anyway, Right?"  If you haven't tried this short series before, I think you will enjoy it.  Today's puzzle of the day is:
