In the Shade

By: componenx Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Other

DNF. This was our second trip here. The first time it was too crowded. We decided to go at dusk and see if things were calmer. Well, the previously mentioned shady characters were there and soon after the cops arrived and made them dissappear. After some more looking, we decided to call it a night. We'll probably try again some other day.

Steven's Creek Button Exchange

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

2nd try on this one, but finally found it. My Treo saved us again as we were able to look up the hint. We walked right by it several times. Lots of caches in this area! Took an Apple pin (not really a button) and left a Ben and Jerry's pin (not a button either!). Lots of people around, but managed to dive in and grab this without attracting too much attention.

[Found all 3 points and the cache, but didn't partake in any dumpster diving. Took a mini koosh ball and left a popper. Hadn't been this far up ]the Stevens Creek trail [before.]

Used the clue to find the sign, but there was no log book that we could find. Maybe it fell out?

The Oaks

By: KurtS (adopted by budd-rdc) Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

A nice park to explore on a nice day. Had no problems finding the cache after a good hike. Great views!
I'm glad I don't have to maintain this one!

Left a NH key chain and took a Seattle Mariners Jack-in-the-box head.

Sly Dog's--Big Lady

By: marwagsalot Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Almost gave up on this one after getting several strange looks from people visiting the big lady. Our GPS kept giving strange readings - moving 60 feet away and then back when standing still. Maybe she didn't want us to find it. Happenned to be in the right place and saw that cache. Forgot to bring a pen, but we were there!
