Tower Of Power

By: Shores Scout, originally by NavySparksandtheM Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

3:13 pm - Tower Of Poop may be a more appropriate name for this cache. Nasty! Found it quickly and got out of there quickly to avoid getting bombed. Thanks.

Little Bridge

By: nlrw Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

9:34 am - It's not often that you get to walk this close to a major highway. Yes, a nice little walk along the highway to start my day. It took me a while to find the cache but finally did. Thanks.

Igor

By: NavySparksandtheMrs Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

11:04 am - I wandered into to this one from Grace's 9th birthday. This was the one I had originally targeted, but I ended up doing this one first. It's surprising to find a "new" park in this area that I've been to many times before.
I managed to find the right trail over and found the cache easily. Took nothing, left a lot of sweat. I took the Elevator Trail down and I was thankful that was the direction I was going on it. Thanks!

Ashen Cache

By: Rogue Ramblers Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

2:34 pm - Apparently I can solve Rogue Ramblers' puzzles, but not find the caches.
The puzzle was interesting and took some time for me to get, but eventually it all made sense.

Today, with my verified coordinates, I searched for 20 minutes or so, got pretty grubby and ran out of ideas. Didn't see anything that really made sense with the hint either. Egads.

Update: The cache w
as missing and Rogue Ramblers has allowed me to log a find since I described where the cache should have been. Thanks!

Beacon, Light My Way

By: Shores Scout, originally by fishdude and zizi Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

3:22 pm - Well, I got the right beacon this time. I still felt pretty weird searching here and I was hoping I'd find it quickly. Finally did and headed off. Thanks.

Circle of Technology

By: vaccine Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

12:29 pm - Somehow I expected the cache to be in the circle, but my GPSr led me to a different spot and I found it easily. I took a B
&
W Jazz for trading. Thanks!

Hastings Tot Lot

By: NavySparksandtheMrs Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

10:25 am - Not one of my smoothest caching experiences. I was heading to Igor and saw this one was less than 300 ft from parking. I started to go straight to it and was in 100 feet or so when it started to get really steep and brushy. Exhausted already, I carefully made my way down, got some water from the car and hiked in.
Hey, there's a nice trail here! I walked up and found the cache easily. I guess you have to come from the top to see the tot lot, which was part of my confusion. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Gazebo

By: Shores Scout, originally by fishdude Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

3:16 pm - That was a quick one in a nice spot. Thanks.

Laurelwood Canyon

By: mjp303 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

11:33 am - I was heading for Sugarloaf, and I happened to pick just the righ trailhead for this one. Just as I arrived at the cache, a guy with two dogs came down the hill and stopped there to put them back on leashes while I patiently sipped water. Nice big cache! TNLNSL. Thanks.

Don't Fence Me Out

By: Rocket Girl and DuckeyLee Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

4:22 pm - Looks like I had a near-collision with Marky, 20 minutes later. Oh well. Thanks for the cache.

Somewhere in Los Altos

By: catomcat Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

5:18 pm - I was in the neighborhood, so I thought I would give this one another try. I searched for a while and made another failed lifeline attempt.
While carefully studying a redwood, I noticed that something on the ground that was likely dropped by a cacher. That led me to look in another area more carefully and I found it. Phew. I see the containers are changing.

Killarny Farms Oak

By: CKayaks Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

4:45 pm - I'm not used to seeing CKayaks caches all alone and not up some crazy hill. [:D]
The toughest part of this one was to look casual while I waited for traffic to pass so I could replace the thing. Took a clear Echo token. Thanks.

Pizza Power

By: Bodster & Vaccine Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

1:55 pm - Mmmm, that pizza smelled good. I walked over to stage one and found the coordinates. Stage 2 turned out to be right near where I parked. Looked around for a bit and found it a little bit off my coordinates, but the title helped. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Walk on by

By: vaccine Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

12:00 pm - I wasn't thinking I was going to do this one, but you sold me when you said I could relog Sugarloaf. It was a high price to pay for sure though.
I was thankful that I almost did walk on by this spot while on my way up. That was definitely enough exercise for the day. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Safe Diligence

By: vaccine Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

2:10 pm - Last time there was way too many people here to search, so I left. I timed my visit much later today and there was no one outside an hour before closing time. I thought I knew where the cache was last time, but it wasn't there. I did more wandering and digging and finally came up with it. Phew! I'll have to come here for breakfast sometime. Thanks.

Ask Your Kids

By: UncleTom Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

1:08 pm - I solved the easy puzzle a few weeks back.
I parked and found the cache and was signing when I felt someone watching me. I turned around and there was a guy sitting in a minivan staring at me. I'm guessing he had been watching me the whole time. The jig was up I guessed, so I just put it back with my body blocking his direct view. He watch
ed me walk away. I didn't stick around to see what he did after that. Thanks for the cache.

Somewhere with No Strings Attached

By: catomcat Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

5:07 pm - I was digging my way around here when I barely noticed this little bugger. I'm not sure why this spot is special, but I found it.

101 TFTs - Three of a kind

By: winini Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

4:30 pm - Once again I found the cache, but I don't yet have the three. I've got an extra B
&
W Jazz, clear Echo and yellow Echo. Anybody want to trade for a black Echo?

Somewhere in Los Altos Hills

By: budd-rdc Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

6:10 pm - Thank you, this was like therapy for me. Now let us never discuss of this again.

Jetty

By: Sierra Hikers Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

3:35 pm - I have a strange and creepy story to tell with this cache.
I parked nearby and wandered up to the cache. Just as I was about to start searching, this real estate agent or something pulls up and drops a sign 30 feet away for a house for sale. Then he just kinda hangs out in his car for a while. I wait. He gets in his car, starts driving, but then just park
s his car on the other side of the street. I wait. Then he comes out and walks very close to me, pretends to look out at the water and checks me out as he walks back to his car. By now I'm lounging on the bench, thinking I'm in for a long wait. He goes back to his car, then comes back out and sits o
n another bench. At this point I lose patience and decided to come back later. I head for my car and drive out towards my next closest cache, Tower of Power.

As I'm heading out on Marine Parkway, I notice the guy's right behind me and he's talking his cell phone. I change lanes, he changes lanes.
I'm getting annoye
d and creeped out, thinking about if I should call the cops. Instead I hope that he is just happening to go the same way as me.
As I pull into the parking lot for Tower of Power, he's still behind me and parks right next to me. I start to walk away towards the cache, but then turn around.

"Can I help you??"
"When did you get your car?"
"Why?"
"I sold a car like that once to a guy."
"Well, that's not my car, I bought mine
new, 6 years ago."
"Is it a ch???"
"What?"
"Is it a ch???"
(I just say no.)
"Well I sold a car like that to a guy and he cheated me. I'm not saying it was your car."
"Sorry, I bought mine new."

Then I just walked away towards the cache, but past it since I didn't want him to see where I was going.
I peeked back and saw him move his car within the lot, and then just sit there. Finally he left. I came back for the cache, then did a few more, but I wanted to get this cache so I drove back over. I had decided that if I saw him again I would immediately turn around and leave. Thankfully he wasn't
there and I found the cache quickly and got out of there.

What I don't get is that I got to the coordinates first and I don't think he saw me drive in, so why did he get suspicious of me and then ask about my car? I dunno, but remimd me never to buy real estate in Foster City. Thanks.

Cherry, Cherry pie. ohooo oohh oohhhh

By: bodster Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

12:48 pm - I don't know what my problem was last time - this one was easy as pie today! Thanks.

The Fiber Channel

By: Rogue Ramblers Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

1:34 pm - This one was just a matter of tracking down the right info and writing some code. Once I got it all right, the numbers popped right out.
I had less luck with the cache though. I spent a half-hour searching and came up with nothing. No hints? Hmpph.

Update: The cache was missing and Rogue Ramblers has allowed me to log a find since I described where the cache should have been. Thanks!

Grace's 9th Birthday

By: mlrsolutions Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

10:44 am - This was a cool trail. I was up on the other side at first, but found a way down and up to this trail. I had no problem finding the cache, though it's too bad it's less than 500 ft from the rambler; it would make for a perfect "Rogue Rambler" cache! TNLNSL. Thanks.

LAH Pathways: Where's Fran?

By: budd-rdc Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

8:47 pm - My autorouter was sending me on some crazy trip to get to the posted coords for this one, so I ignored it and tried another way. I got lucky and found the trailhead. There was someone occupying the parking spot, so I parked a bit away and walked in. Thanks to you AND Fran!

LAH Pathways: Deer Creek

By: budd-rdc Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

5:47 pm - Alright, finally an abode in LAH that I can afford! How much is it? A bit of a fix-er-upper, isn't it? Built-in cache too - I'll take it!

Sugarloaf

By: karcass, punkgeek (Adopted by vaccine) Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

11:47 am - I don't really remember the last time I was here. Either it's because I've found 1500 caches or so since then or my mind has blocked out the painful memories of this hill. I think I came in a different way last time. The hill was steep but short and I found the cache OK with the coordinates for Walk on By. Thanks for the views!

Aug 27, 2005

LOOKY -LOO ""--- > ""--- >

By: bobs94jeep Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I came back today with MotorBug for backup. He had found it before it moved, so he wasn't able to find it either. I finally checked one spot noticed it. The hint is useless and should be changed or removed. Thanks.

Tony Look

By: WalruZ Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

MotorBug and I decided to take a short hike after DNFing Anchor. At least this looked a lot shorter from the dam. Up and up we went until we arrived here. It was a guaranteed find since MotorBug had already found this one. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Somewhere in Los Altos

By: catomcat Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

5:20 pm - I spent 20 minutes or so looking for this one and failed to connect to a lifeline. My Dad IMed me and reminded me that the baseball game was on. That sounded like a lot more fun and it was.

Pfeiffer Trout Farm

By: 47russ47 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

Neat history. MotorBug and I huffed our way from the dam and only found the cache after some deliberate searching. I'm not sure the hint is true, especially for someone like me. We considered continuing on and taking the road back, but decided the hill was still faster. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Great Wall of Sanborn

By: workerofwood Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

There was some discussion of this cache on the way back, but the consensus was that it was missing. ProTech apparently didn't hear that and went after the cache, finding it easily. He called up to us and we went back down and up again to do the paperwork. TNLNSL. Thanks!

ANX: The Angle of Eternity

By: workerofwood Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

Whoah that was cool. I was both a help and hinderance to this quest. First I helped by showing up late and then finding the first stage but noticing something that the others didn't. Stage 2 was genius. On stage 3 I miscounted and combined with Nagzul's miscount we had wrong coordinates but a working checksum. Uggh. We came back after a trip up the hill and took a remedial lesson in counting.
Our new coordinates made a lot more sense. We quickly caught up the first group. We found the tools easily, but had a lot of trouble figuring out what to do with them. I endangered myself by following a false geotrail, but ProTech came up to rescue me.

Since the other group was stuck trying to f
ind the cache, they took some pity on us and helped us a bit. I should have realized that we hadn't used the UV light yet.

After aligning the planets, I pretty much wandered around aimlessly until MotorBug found it. I was thankful because I'm fighting off a cold and I was exhausted. TNLNSL. Thank
s for the really creative cache!

Raoul Heywood

By: Spyder Woman Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

3:08 pm - This was a very tough puzzles. There were a few references I didn't get and there's a few more I still don't get, like the title.
I got some reasonable coordinates with a lot of help. I came by to search but didn't find anything and felt suspicous searching here. I went for another cache and in the meantime my lifeline called back. I returned and found it relatively quickly. It was face up; I probably moved it in my previous
search. Oh well. Thanks.

Nighttime Sky

By: momagna Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

4:57 pm - Sometimes I think geocaching is about visiting the same places over and over again. Yup, I've done a cache here before. Nice view. Thanks!

King of the Hill

By: kablooey Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

4:12 pm - It's good to be king, but u-turns are no fun up here. I had to do a few of them and every time I thought I was going to get creamed by someone barrelling down the hill. Once I finally got myself in the right place I found the cache easily. Took a golf ball and left one of Kablooey's smashed pennies.

can-hank-erous

By: halhal Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

3:54 pm - Nice spot, not so nice smell! Quick find. Thanks.

LOOKY -LOO ""--- > ""--- >

By: bobs94jeep Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

1:16 pm - Coordinates all over the place, poison oak, stickers, flies, signs that say danger and the feeling that I shouldn't be there didn't make this a pleasant experience. I gave up after checking all the obvious places and spending 20 minutes here.

Milkshake Mound

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

5:59 pm - From the shortened name in my GPSr, I thought this one was called Milkshake Mountain. Some mountain! Well I reached the summit and found the cache OK. TNLNSL. Thanks for the hike!

Wicked Cousins

By: 2blucats Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

1:55 pm - I have no idea what's going on with this puzzle. I mapped out all the relationships in a geneology program and got some numbers, but they were all wrong except for one. [:(]
Luckily some friends are better at this than me and they helped me finish it up.

The grapes on the way to the cache sure were tempting. I decided that any that were sticking out of the fence were fair game. I had one and it was yummy.

I found the cache OK and TNLNSL. Thanks.

Alien Escape Pod

By: ProTechCC Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

2:51 pm - Quick find. God those last two logs are funny! Thanks!

Corvus Corax

By: Cat & Bird Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

3:30 pm - Well, I saw some on the way over here. I wasn't sure if that was a good omen or not. I tried one approach and couldn't find away in. The second approach made a lot more sense. The camo was quite tough and only with some help and persistence did I find it. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Don't Drink and Ride

By: Sharkz Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

1:23 pm - Quick stop here today. I found it quickly and sat down to remove all the burrs I acquired at LOOKY LOO. Thanks.

Hillside Destruction

By: Sharkz Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

12:57 pm - I'm usually no good at these kinds of hides, but I walked right up to this one. I was thinking about hiking over to Tony Look on the other side of the dam, but decided to do a mostly driving caching day instead. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Main Street Vineyard

By: bykenut Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

6:09 pm - Neat, I sure wouldn't have noticed these. I parked in the wrong lot, but that's life. Quick find. Thanks!

Where's Muriel?

By: santacruztacean Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

2:26 pm - It took me 3 tries to find Muriel. She's very well hidden! I'll make a note of this problem for wherever I'm buried. Thanks!

Parker Ranch Trail (Nazgul Secret Trailhead #4)

By: Team Nazgul Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

1:38 pm - I was coming from Stevens Creek and my GPSr was telling me to go out to De Anza and back. It looked like you could get there via twisty roads though, so I ignored my GPSr, the signs and better judgement. I did come upon two cul-de-sacs connected with a short road that said private, but it worked just find. [:D]
I parked nearby the cache and started my search. Nope, I wouldn't have found this trailhead on my own. It took a few minutes to find the cache too. Thanks!

Cambrian Hideout

By: BearSilber Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

5:29 pm - This was simple enough. Thanks for the multi.

New Wrinkle

By: spyder woman Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

2:43 pm - I tried one approach and failed so I drove around to find another. Talk about a gated community! I drove right by the entrance at first and didn't notice it was open. After that I walked right up to the cache. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Twisted Strands

By: Rocket Girl and DuckeyLee Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

7:50 pm - I tend to leave these caches that are really close to home for after work or when I have an errand to run. Tonight my wife's library books were overdue, so I volunteered to return them. She was suspicious until I told her there was a cache nearby. Quick find. Thanks!

800

By: Thefogheads Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

4:38 pm - Let me skip 800 and congratulate you on 1000+!
I've been staring at this cache for a long time and today I decided it was time. I parked outside the park and walked about a mile roundtrip. Easy find once I got there, TNLNSL. Thanks!

More Geobeads: Leftovers

By: workerofwood (special thanks to Zapboy) Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

5:05 pm - I found this one quickly. In the middle of signing the log, a whole bunch of people rode by, me with the camo and container and nowhere to hide. Oh well. Nicely done, thanks!

Fremont Older OSP's Front Door

By: stbk Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

1:45 pm - I've hiked from here a few times before so today I was just here for the cache. Quick find, thanks.

Mr. Rich

By: Cat & Bird Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

6:22 pm - I usually check my math on multis but it was getting late and I was feeling tired so I almost didn't bother. Good thing I did as I had two mistakes! I made the short walk over and found the cache. Thanks!

Aug 20, 2005

Riverfalls

By: nielsenc Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

7:32 pm - I'm sure that when this was a dirt lot it was a lot easier to find a parking spot around here - geez! This place is kinda strange. It's like they've built their own little privately-owned town. I found the cache quickly and then grabbed some dinner. Thanks!

Half-way View

By: Tonton-Ca Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

11:18 am - There used to be another cache about 20 feet from here. No parking, so I just had an "emergency" and did my business quickly. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Stumped

By: Rocket Girl and DuckeyLee Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

6:35 pm - As soon as I saw it I knew what it was. Thanks for the cache.

Once a Spur

By: TeamSpider3 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

6:23 pm - Well, that's odd. I wonder if anyone would complain if I took one of these home with me. It doesn't look like they're planning on being used anytime soon. [;)] Thanks!

Nefertiti's Pyramid: Royal Gates

By: GeoWomyn_SF_CA Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

1:19 pm - I was just getting my route straightened out when we came upon another cache. There was only one spot that looked right and sure enough it was there. Once again took some good notes and headed on. Thanks!

Nefertiti's Pyramid: Offerings

By: GeoWomyn_SF_CA Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

1:13 pm - We started off heading in the wrong direction, but made a quick u-turn and walked over to this one. Once when I was here the gate was open and I drove up. There was just a dirt turnaround, but I'm glad I didn't park here as the gate was locked when I came back from my hike.
We took note of the instructions and anxiously headed on for the next one. Thanks!

Nefertiti's Pyramid

By: GeoWomyn_SF_CA Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

2:52 pm - Finally, the apex of the pryamid. Being male, I pretty much ignored all the instructions we had gathered and just put it together the way I thought it went. The we read the instructions and did it the right way.
We were in awe of the power we had constructed and it led us to the cache right away. TNLNSL.

I'm sure glad you put this series together, because I'm way too lazy to do this kind of work for placing caches. Excellent job! We're looking forward to more. Thanks!

Nefertiti's Pyramid: Throne

By: GeoWomyn_SF_CA Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

2:26 pm - You sure took some creative license with this one. I think a true queen would demand a more opulant throne! Found it quickly and headed on.
A little ways up we finally caught up with fizzy. He was heading back down with this brother and dog. At the exact same time, dgreno calls to let me know he's on the trail an hour behind us. A strange convergence of cachers here! It must be the power of the pyramid drawing us together. Thanks!

Nefertiti's Pyramid: Underworld

By: GeoWomyn_SF_CA Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

1:41 pm - It was a nice walk out to here and an easy find. I finally gave up taking notes and took a picture with my Treo. Thanks!

Nefertiti's Pyramid: Shrine

By: GeoWomyn_SF_CA Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

1:29 pm - We weren't quite sure which way to go at the fork, but I manged to choose wisely. Some people were picking blackberries off the bushes nearby when we veered off the trail to find this one. Good thing it was sticking out a bit! The final is starting to look complicated! Thanks.

Nefertiti's Pyramid: Viper

By: GeoWomyn_SF_CA Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

2:18 pm - As we approached we saw a flock of wild turkeys in the dry creek. I looked all around before I found it and then noticed that fizzymagic was here today. Where was he? TNLNSL. Thanks.

Nefertiti's Pyramid: King Tut

By: GeoWomyn_SF_CA Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

2:10 pm - We took a walk around the pond to find this one. Where does all the water come from anyway?
We looked in a bunch of places until I found it. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Duckey

By: Duckey Lee and Rocket Girl Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

7:16 pm - After checking all the spots I thought possible twice and trying not to disturb the wasp nests nearby, I decided to call a lifeline. I didn't think it was possible to put one there, but I guess it is. Thanks.

Undertow

By: Butano Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

10:17 am - This was one of those spots I checked "just in case" and I was surprised to find it. Nicely done. Thanks!

Casey@bat Cache

By: Tonton-Ca Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

10:08 am - It took me a while to spot this one. Glad I finally got it.

UNO JUNIPER

By: Rocket Girl and DuckeyLee Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

6:42 pm - There were some people in the park today, but it didn't take long to find. Thanks!

Lickmill Park

By: nielsenc Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

12:06 pm - When I found this one it brought a smile to my face. It was in the first place I looked and MotorBug was complaining to me that he DNF'd this one. [}:)] Thanks.

Columbian Mammoths of the Guadalupe River Basin

By: bullit Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

5:48 pm - Well I still think this is really cool. I'm not sure if I would have called the authorities if I saw this though - it just looked like an ugly rock to me. There was still a security guy and some volunteers there showing curious people what this was all about. I was just there for the cache. Thanks!

Hot Rod Hangout

By: frivlas and oneangrypuppy Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

11:07 am - I could barely hear myself cache over the loud 50's music coming out the speakers. The hint was helpful. Thanks.

VTA Diridon Station

By: frivlas Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

10:32 am - This was a weird place. First I drove up a street to the cache that wasn't really a street. While I was searching, some VTA workers came by, did some quick work and left. My GPS was all over the place, but I eventually found it. I didn't feel like I should have been hanging out here though.

Stairs to nowhere

By: nielsenc Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

10:50 am - Scenic! Took me a while, but I was happy to finally get out of here.

Mission Corral

By: rc & boys Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

6:03 pm - Back to this park again. There was a guy reading nearby, but he seemed pretty occupied and didn't bother me. I spotted it from the outside, but grabbed it from the inside. Thanks!

G8

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

11:01 am - When I started looking at this one, I was thinking of the OTHER G8. I soon found the other one and got the required info. Quick find this morning though I was expecting it would be on a different type of object. Thanks!

curiously strong roots

By: missnsteve Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

5:59 pm - Ants!! All over the cache! Brushed them off, signed and headed on. Thanks!

Agnew Park

By: nielsenc Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

11:58 am - I was running out of possibilities when I found this one. I remember the other cache that used to be nearby. That was a toughie - I'm surprised it's gone now. Thanks.

Buggy

By: Butano Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

11:32 am - I found the original Bugs, but not this one. Looked pretty thoroughly at ground zero, but I think kids play here.

Small park, regular cache

By: yungman Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

3:35 pm - I was going to grab this one on the way to the event but I missed the turn. MotorBug and I checked out of the event to go after this one. We both complained of how sore we were after our hike in Quicksilver yesterday. The area was well-trampled so we found the cache easily. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Burton Park Revisited

By: Rogue Ramblers Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

11:26 am - It wasn't until I read workerofwood's log that it all made sense and I managed to snatch the cache between passes of the park worker. Thanks.

Relax For Awhile

By: NavySparksandtheMrs Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

11:05 am - Didn't have much time to relax - there's caches to be found out there! Thanks.

Safe Diligence

By: vaccine Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

11:34 am - Too many people around here today including one guy 5 feet away who seemed fascinated with what I was doing. Some other time.

BADGES Picnic #3

By: BADGES Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

12 pm - Finished up some nearby caches and popped into the event. With 8 bucks for the event and parking, it was pricey for an event, but still well worth the money. Had fun and dropped of the Roswell Jr. travel bug with Joani. Thanks!

Spider Den

By: ChrissySkyking + Blaze (adopted by CaliSeaSta Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

Strange that so many people found this one before it was published. SMILIE The name was certainly appropriate. Thanks!

Suburban Park

By: bthomas Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

12:53 pm - I was mid-conversation when I noticed a gaggle of cachers gathering and heading away. I wasn't letting them get away. After freaking out the rangers, we moved on and grabbed this one. Thanks.

Not a Sphere

By: mjp303 Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

10:52 am - This one wasn't too bad once I figured out the hint. I also found a new tool to work these things out.
The cache was in an appropro spot. Thanks!

Around Ten Birds

By: digitalfish Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

10:26 am - I wondered why this one didn't show up in my PQ last week since I was just on the other side of the park. It was disabled, that's why.
I was a bit puzzled at this cache at first when I discounted the first spot I saw. Looked around and then decided to give it a try and found it. Nicely done! Thanks.

Anchors Aweigh

By: crawburr Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

10:39 am - I messed up on this one multiple times, but luckily I have friends who know this kind of stuff. I get it now though.
Funny thing was that last weekend I tried to brute force this one. I saw a spot that seemed to match the title and the hint, so I stalked it out, but couldn't find it. I was way off.

Once at the coordinates, I had trouble finding the cache and started to doubt my sources. But I persisted and foun
d it. I got lucky
on multiple counts for this one. Thanks.

Reservations Required

By: mjp303 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

11:00 am - I started digging in the ivy even though I thought that mjp would know better. The title honed me in and with a different look. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Bellamy's Cache

By: PisoMojado Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

11:14 am - Congrats! I found it in the first place I looked, but the second time I looked there after checking the hint. SMILIE I had to be careful not to drop anything. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Virus Alpha 5

By: Nemglan Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

11:17 am - We had very poor reception here, so MotorBug was on one side of the trail while I was on the other. Thankfully, we found the cache. This virus certainly is spreading... Thanks!

Tie Exchange

By: EverSeeking Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

12:54 pm - We were getting going on this hike and it felt good, so I powered up the trail, releasing a week's worth of stress with it. We were definitely sweating by the time we reached the top.
We sat down in the shade while we sifted through the cache. TNLNSL. I'm going to be sore tomorrow! Thanks.

At A Snails Pace

By: Team LegGoes Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

4:14 pm - I was pretty sure I knew what we were looking for, just not where it was. I called a lifeline and while I was on the call MotorBug found it. Hmm, I think I've seen one of these before. [}:)] Thanks.

Along the De Anza Trail 10 - Camden Oak

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

4:40 pm - Out with MotorBug and picked this one up - literally it was on the ground. We placed in a bit more secure place and then MotorBug treated me to a Jamba Juice. Thanks!

Dam Hicks! (Nazgul Secret Trailhead #2)

By: Team Nazgul Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

10:56 am - I don't feel so bad in not finding it during my quick search last time. Today I noticed something odd right away and then found it with some more investigation. Once I did, I let MotorBug make the discovery himself. Interesting contraption! Thanks.

Chemistry: Chapter 11

By: ProTechCC Difficulty: 5.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

3:41 pm - I think I had some serious help with this one, but it was a long time ago. In fact the cache hasn't been visited in 6 months! It looks like it's been through some rain as it was kinda moldy. This was a nice consolation prize after downgrading our ambitions in quicksilver today. Thanks!

Los Capitancillos Ridge

By: ckayaks Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 4.0 Container: Small

12:29 pm - MotorBug tried another ridge before we found this one. Although he had done this one before, he was absolutely no help because he didn't remember it. I managed to find him a new pair of glasses even for the next time he loses his, but he didn't keep them.
He did find the cache for me. That was nice. TNLNSL. Afterwards we debated for a while whether or not we should continue down. MotorBug finally agreed, saying "Why Not? I've done dumber things in my life." Now that's the spirit!

Above the Mine

By: ProTechCC Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

11:50 am - I'm looking at a map on Oct 30 and I notice this cache is still hanging out. Hey, it's another one I forgot to log! I'm pretty sure I remember MotorBug cursing me for making him go up this hill. And I think I took a CITO t-shirt and left some stuff for it. Anyway, thanks!

Alien Rover

By: ProTechCC Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

12:02 pm - We came up over the hill and found the cache easily. I didn't even notice the wasps until I read it in the logs. Motorbug feasted on the cache while I signed the log. SMILIE Thanks!

Leslie's Favorite Trail Cache # 2

By: ProTechCC Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Regular

1:34 pm - Nice trail here. TNLNSL, barely able to stuff the CITO shirt back in. It seemed like a nice short hike to the other cache, so we headed off. Thanks.

Missing: One Horse

By: workerofwood Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

11:28 am - There's lots of old junk outside the cache and lots of new junk inside. Quick find with MotorBug spotting snakes for me. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Leslie's Favorite Trail Cache #1

By: ProTechCC Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

2:07 pm - Oh man, this one was a lot further than it looked. .44 miles straight line, but over a mile of twists and turns and ups and downs to actually get there. We were tired when we found it and dreaded turning right back around and doing it again. But I've wanted to get these caches back here for a while and there never seems to be an easy way to do them. They're done now! TNLNSL. Thanks.

Sit On It

By: Rocket Girl and DuckeyLee Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

8 pm - I was on my way to pick up MotorBug at the airport and stopped by for this cache on the way. There was a couple doing stretches very close by, but I was able to grab the cache OK. Thanks.

I want to be a Hilton

By: pao_flyer Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

9:15 pm - This one popped up very close to MotorBug's house while he was away, so we grabbed it just after he got off the plane. I moved the car so the headlights would be on the area we were searching when I found it. I've seen a couple of these before. Nicely done. Thanks.

Aug 9, 2005

GOT NET?

By: Rocket Girl and DuckeyLee Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

7:20 pm - I parked within 5 feet of this one and immediately saw something strange as I got out of the car. Sure enough that was the cache. Thanks.

GeoBeads #8 - A Little Evil

By: zapboy with help from workerofwood Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

7:06 pm - I searched the wrong area at first, then found someplace closer to the coordinates, though I never got within 30 feet. Well hidden. The bead was cute. Thanks!

Boy, Am I Ever Hungry!

By: NavySparksandtheMrs Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

3:13 pm - Haven't been to one of these in years, but it sounds good. Thanks.

Bridge Over Troubled Water

By: matt & amy Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

3:28 pm - I noticed a couple of those huge birdhouses on the way in. I wonder what they're for?
Lots of muggles going by today so my search was frequently interrupted. Once it was by a guy riding one of those old-style bicycles with the really big wheel in front and a tiny one in back. Strangely, he asked me if I knew what the birdhouse was for.

Anyway found the cache once I read the descri
ption of the container. I'd call this a micro instead of a small. Thanks.

Matadero Creek Canal

By: TimberToo Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

3:02 pm - After spending a week in North Carolina, it felt good to be doing some caching back in the Bay Area where it's not ridiculously hot and humid.
I did OK on the first stage, but the hide technique on the second stage wasn't my favorite. I spent a lot of time getting dirty before spotting it. A hint on the attachment method would solve that. Thanks.

Pacific Shores Point

By: digitalfish Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

5:11 pm - Replaced the cache. The first thing I found was the steak knife that STP Ron found. It looks like some locals were using it to carve their names into the table.
The second thing I found was a tiny rare-earth magnet with some glue on it. Since it was pretty clear that the cache was gone, I trashed out the knife and replaced the cache with a black film can.

I had no idea that this complex was out here. Thanks!

Skylit

By: stbk Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

4:03 pm - I was amazed that I haven't been up this way the 5 months since this cache has been placed. Found it quick enough. Strange building. Thanks.

The Station 2 Cache

By: GeoStriker Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

3:51 pm - When I arrived the park was FULL of people...at the other end from the cache. I wandered over and found the cache quickly. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Fair Oaks Cache

By: GeoStriker Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

3:44 pm - I took some weird streets to this one that had this zigzaggy thing every block or so.
Once I arrived, I thought for sure this place would have kids all over the place. Instead I had it all to myself. Quick find. Thanks.

Square News

By: momagna Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

4:27 pm - Quick one. Thanks.

Frank's Tannery

By: crawburr Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

4:40 pm - I never would have guessed there was a little trail here. The math looked a little complicated, but I went through it quickly. My first cut at the coordinates didn't work out - they put me in the middle of a store. I went on to another cache and came back, taking a different guess at D. A bit of searching and I came up with it. Interesting history, thanks. TNLNSL.

A Cache Wrapped in a Mystery Inside an Enigma

By: fraygirls Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

12:41 pm - After exploring the "cave" for a while I looked around a bit more and found the cache. I used to have one of these myself, but it was taken and I decided I didn't want to encouraging people to suspect every one of these they see. Anyway, this was out of the way enough. Thanks!

Fort Fisher Cache

By: Christen & Patti (Adopted by fraygirls & ltlj Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

12:18 pm - Oh boy, it was hooootttt here today. We just came over the ferry and stopped for a quick cache. I couldn't have found it sooner. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Look out for the Grumpy Old Troll TB Hotel

By: HuckleberryMommy (adopted by Voodoodancer) Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

9:35 am - FTF! I was here on a boat yesterday but today I just had to make the drive over. I would give this another star for difficulty just because there's lots of places to look. I had to get inside to see it. As I was leaving a Dad took his kids over near the cache to "use the facilities". I hope they missed! TNLNSL. Thanks.

Elmer's Pot of Gold

By: HuckleberryMommy (adopted by Voodoodancer) Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

9:21 am - FTF! This cache could be a driveup if you have a 4x4. The big puddles would cause problems for other vehicles right now though. Lots of trash here - I CITO'd some on the way out. The cache was easy to find. TNLNSL. I thought it would have been funny to make it an "urban" micro and put the cache in one of the newspaper boxes dumped nearby. SMILIE Thanks!

Peering from Noah's Ark

By: HuckleberryMommy Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

11:14 am - This was one tough cache! Could you save my ego and add a star to the difficulty? [:D] The first thing I did was look in the "standard" place for this kind of location, but came up empty. Searched around and around while muggles passed , read all the logs and looked some more. I was about to go inside and see if anyone who works here could help me out!
Finally I spotted it in a place I had discounted at first. The only task left was to avoid the muggles who were trying to fix their bloody feet on the bench nearby. TNLNSL.

GO FISH!

By: William & Joyce Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

11:39 am - It was hot out there today doing all that counting. I wasn't sure about my coordinates, especially when I arrived there, so I double-checked them. As I walked towards the zer0 point a man looked at me expentantly from the yard. I asked him if I was in the right place and he said if I had a GPS, I was. Phew, I felt a bit weird here. Found the cache easily and then the landowner went to retrieve a new log book for the cache. I signed the new book and TNLNSL. Thanks!

Butterflies are Free

By: Bookiew Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Virtual

10:29 am - This was a cool park. I liked the Talking Trees though the one I tried wasn't working. I found the plaque and was on my way. Thanks!

Oak Island Park Bench

By: KLifeMom Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

11:27 am - The sprinklers were on, but I just ran though them. It was hot out there today. I found the bench easily and headed on my way. Thanks.

Former Fire Fighter

By: MartyFouts Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

10 am - I drove past this one in Supply, NC today. It doesn't say it's retired, but they have 3 shiny new trucks inside and this one has boards behind its tires, so I think it's been relegated to parade duty.

G Pa's Cove

By: Hike Master Tim Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

3:30 pm - The cache is alive and well. We rented a pontoon boat from Southport and headed to this cache on our way back from Holden Beach. The sand was very soft here. TNLNSL. Thanks for the cool spot!

Treasure Island

By: treasurehunter64 Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 5.0 Container: Regular

1:48 pm - We rented a pontoon boat in Southport today and headed towards this cache. It was a great day to be out.
The sand was hot, but the cache was easy to find. There were lots of people wading in the sandbars, so I guess I could have swam to it. Anyway, TNLNSL. Thanks!

Dock of the bay

By: treasurehunter64 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

11:29 am - My Treo died when I got here, so I was worried that I would need the description. As I approached I realized it wouldn't be necessary - there was a group of cachers with the cache in hand. Thanks for the quick find!

Southport History

By: Wise and Kabal Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

10:52 am - I did half of this multi yesterday, but I had to catch a ferry so iI didn't finish the last two waypoints. I wasn't sure about my coordinates, but I found the marker alright. This is a neat old place. Thanks for the tour.

Near the End

By: Ponder Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

10:07 am - This was an interesting place and I had it all to myself this morning. I found the spot and then somehow got lost trying to get back the car. I was hot out there today! Thanks.

Old Brunswick Town

By: bookiew & Geotigger & bigdaddy757 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

9:57 am - The place didn't open until 10, but I snuck in a little early and wandered around. I enjoyed learning about all the history here. Thanks.

Dead 'Federate Cache

By: zcoach Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

I found this old cemetary in Southport, NC while doing a another cache here. I thought it would be easy to find a confederate soldier in one of these places, but it took me quite a while.
This is the grave of William R. Ferguson of Company A, 37th Virgina Infantry. It's complete with a confederate flag and a VFW stake. The Civil War was a foreign war??

2:43 pm - We almost went for a walk here, but the mosquitoes discovered us so we hightailed it back. Thanks!

BHI Anniversary

By: JeffersonStone, Adopted by fraygirls 2/06 Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

2:00 pm - We were heading to this place anyway, so it was convenient that there was a cache here. It was very hot at the top. Afterwards we rented a golf cart and cruised the island for some fun. Thanks!

Kinnakeet Way Lookout

By: KLifeMom and Family Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

3:34 pm - This was a cool spot we definitely wouldn't have found if there wasn't a cache here. We drove our golf cart all around the island and had a great time. Thanks!

Cape Fear and Frying Pan Shoals

By: KLifeMom and family Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

2:55 pm - We stopped here to check out the beach - very nice! The houses nearby were amazing as well. Thanks for the visit.

Cape Fear Light Station

By: JeffersonStone Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

2:45 pm - We stopped for a few minutes to check out the buildings and read the history. Lots of cool stuff on this island. Thanks.

The Foreign Exchange

By: fraygirls Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

5:29 pm - I did find one of the letterboxes first. Kept iterating and finally found it. I got an unexpected 2TF. I left the Mark The Cat TB and took nothing. Thanks!

Cameron Art Mico Cache

By: Scout 226 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

4:57 pm - I think the museum just closed as there were people leaving and looking at me strangely for coming in here at this time. I wandered in and found the cache quickly. These hides and containers are starting to look familiar! Thanks.

Halyburton Handicache

By: Scout 226 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

4:26 pm - I was busy getting lost doing the multi, but managed to find this one easily. Thanks for the walk on this hot day.

When Luck Enters, Give Him A Seat!

By: Team Bramblescratch Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

3:27 pm - Apparently I just missed a heck of a lot of rain because everything was dripping wet. I tried a few spots before I found the cache. Nicely-themed contents. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Time to Get Ill Micro

By: Team Bramblescratch Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

5:56 pm - I liked the themed hint on this one and the log was creatively shaped for the container. It was a bit damp though. Found it quickly and ran back to my car before it got ticketed. Thanks!

Celestial Dollars Micro #1

By: Team Bramblescratch Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

6:06 pm - I see why the cache was placed here. I found the cache quickly, but I think it will need a better attachment method to stay for a while. Thanks.

Greenfield Lake Micro Cache

By: kayaker229 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

3:44 pm - It was raining a bit, but it felt good on this hot day. Searched a few places before I found it. Yeah, the log was pretty wet. I passed by a very tame duck on the way back to my car; he didn't move as I passed within feet of him. TFTC.

Anne McCrary Storm Water Micro

By: kayaker229 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

6:29 pm - I heard about this once on NPR. Cool tech.
The cache was tough to find. I think a regular cache would work fine here. Thanks.

Halyburton Park Cache

By: Scout 226 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

4:45 pm - Swanky new park! I was almost certain that I would DNF this one because I must have done something wrong for waypoint 3. After trying to brute force the coords, I found the intended point on my way back to the car. Luckily the cache itself was much easier to find. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Halyburton MICRO

By: kayaker229 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

4:18 pm - I found this one while doing the multi here. I've been looking for this kind of camo since I arrived here for vacation. Thanks.

Many Gallons of Prop Wash

By: Number 6 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

7:06 pm - I had some trouble finding the plaque and thought it may have been removed because the prop was fenced off. Cool ship. Thanks!

John D.elightful Cache

By: kendeenc and Family Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

3:07 pm - Well I parked in the wrong lot so I had a bit of a walk over to the cache site. I had to wander a bit until I found it. Nice hide. I took an antenna ball and left a hot wheels car. Thanks!

Hugh Macrae Nature Trail

By: Scott & Katie Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

5:16 pm - I had to do a couple of uturns to get here, but finally found my way in. It was a quick walk though I think I went the wrong way.
The cache was all wet except for the logbook. TNLNSL. Thanks.

ACL RR

By: pkpaul Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

6:55 pm - I parked between two guys who were sitting in their cars. One guy was flipping through issues of Trains magazine, so I guess he was really into this stuff. Thanks for the virtual.

SEAHAWK CACHE

By: Claus K and Chris R Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

5:45 pm - My GPSr was all wacky here; luckily it was an easy hide with a very helpful hint. TNLNSL. Thanks!

12:50 pm - I had a fun time driving around here and finding the spot. Quick find. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Calabash #1

By: Geo13 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

2:53 pm - I was about to start searching for this one when a guy in an old jalopy pulled up then slowly walked to the house across the street. He knocked on the door, no one answered, so he slowly walked back and left.
After that I found the cache in a few minutes. Thanks for the cache!

125 Sasspan Dr.

By: Wyatt777 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

12:38 pm - I felt a little weird searching here, but if it's cool with the owner, then it's fine with me. Nice cache, TNLNSL. Thanks.

Sunset Beach Cache

By: Perryboy and Jerrymander Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

2:09 pm - I found the sign on this hot day, then headed over to the cache. I had a pretty good idea about where it was hidden, but couldn't quite spot it. I almost gave up but then got it from a different angle. TNLNSL. Thanks.

1:30 pm - Cool place. I just had to take a picture of it. I wandered in quickly and then headed off for more GPS fun. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Vereen Memorial Garden Cache

By: Digndirt and Scuba Girl Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

3:37 pm - Nice tour of the park! The first stage was tough since I wasn't sure what I was looking for. The next two stages were nice walks on this hot day.
At the last stage I ran into Team AlphaOmega. Sorry if I didn't take time to chat - I was gone way longer than what my family expected! I found the cache quickly and TNLNSL. On the way out I chatted with the locals who must have been surprised at all the cachers coming and going today.

Thanks for
my first SC cache!
