Raccoon Strait

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

4:48 pm - We took the CORRECT path up to this one from Pt. Stuart, even though we had to walk our bikes for some of the steep parts. This trail was fun on a bike though. I searched for quite a while until I realized I had walked right by it. TNLN. Thanks!

hole in one

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

2:15 pm - I can note this one as my first drive by on a bike. I didn't even have to get off. I've also never seen this container used before. I'll have to start saving them. Thanks.

wacky rocks

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

1:33 pm - Found this one pretty quickly after pretending to admire the view for some passing muggles. They apparently thought it was a good idea too and stopped their bikes a little ahead of us. Thanks!

keep your guard up

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

11:05 am - I wandered around for a while until I found it where it made the most sense. Four caches in 15 minutes - that's some serious cache density for an uninhabited island! Thanks.

love shack

By: cooperphoto Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

10:51 am - This was the first of our 34 caches on the island today. And to think we already did 20 here a while back! This was pretty quick, which was good thing since we had many more to do. Thanks!

three wise men

By: cooperphoto Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

11:16 am - Almost DNF'd this one. I looked for a while until I figured out the interesting hiding technique. I found it mostly through clumsiness. Thanks anyway!

Troop 333; Angels in White

By: h_mtreasurecache Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Not chosen

11:30 am - It's good that this one was well-covered because it has negative camo! Found it quickly in this quiet area of the park. Thanks.

don't miss the boat

By: cooperphoto Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

5:03 pm - Yes, yes, yes, my wife is already reminding me every few seconds that we don't want to miss the last ferry. We've got 17 minutes left and there's only a few caches left. What's the rush? OK, even I was getting a bit nervous. I found the cache quickly once I got to the right side of the road. That seemed to happen a lot today. Thanks!

Yes, Fire Works

By: BKip Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

12:33 pm - Wow, impressive work on this one. Found it right away since it was in the obvious spot. TNLN. Thanks!

just give me a sign!

By: cooperphoto Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

12:50 pm - There were a lot of people hanging around this trail intersection, so we did a lot of waiting before we searched. I looked on the wrong side of the trail, then Anne pointed me to the right side (which was on my left. Wha?) Nice camo. Thanks!

Nights of the Roundtable

By: ingmccleary Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Small

12:41 pm - FTF? I'm not sure. When we looked at the log, someone else had signed in earlier in the day. They were camping above and stumbled across it. Since they're not geocachers, I don't know if that counts as a FTF or not. [:D] Anyway, interesting spot and we TNLN. Thanks!

Seaside View

By: Eagle Shadow Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

1:50 pm - The island sure was crowded today. Just as we arrived here a large group of young Indians started hanging around near the cache and taking pictures. They even asked me to take one. I did, hoping they would go away soon. Eventually I spotted in while they were still there and was able to grab it while they were still in the vicinity. TNLN. Thanks!

Picnic Photo Opp

By: TeamAlamo Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

3:27 pm - This was mean, mean and evil. After finding some suspicious spots empty of caches, I called the owner to ask if I was OK to replace it. He gave me an additional hint and I found it. Mean, mean, mean!

its the water

By: cooperphoto Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

4:20 pm - No muggles here, but lots of nosy deer around. Once I saw the spot, it all made sense. Thanks!

Stuffed Bike Cache

By: momagna Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

4:58 pm - Reading the story, the name now makes sense, though I hope you picked up the bike as not to pollute the island. Found the cache with the hint and headed determinedly towards our date with the ferry in 20 minutes. Thanks.

aDORAble

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

1:02 pm - My search for this one was pretty pathetic. I looked all over the place until Anne arrived and said she saw it. I looked up and there it was - right above my head. I'll use the visor of my bike helmet as an excuse, despite the lack of any camo on this container. TNLN. Thanks!

TA@10K #0001: Bishops Gambit (AKA: Gun Jumper)

By: cooperphoto Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Small

12:10 pm - As I was heading down to this one, I thought for sure I would find a better and saner way back up. Nope. The cache was easily found once I was in the right spot though and I noted the info for this series, though I'd be surprised if I ever make it to all 11. TNLN. Thanks for the exercise!

Start or End Here

By: momagna with kdcool919 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

5:06 pm - We choose: End Here. We still had a few minutes before the ferry left and I found this one lickety split. No time to trade, so TNLN. Thanks!

Crack Me Up

By: momagna with kdcool919 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

12:25 pm - I worked on this one alone for a while, then Anne yelled the description at me from 200 feet away. That helped and I found it soon after without any need for endangering my life further today. Thanks for the cache.

Point Campbell

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

11:00 am - Nice view for #3 on the day. Quick find, TNLN. Thanks!

lunch stump

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

2:29 pm - This was the first cache of our second mini-hike of the day, taking a break from our bikes. Quick find. TNLN. Thanks!

what do you got?

By: cooperphoto Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Micro

1:18 pm - As we passed a trailhead, we took our first opportunity of the day to get off our bikes and take a short hike. It was also a great time to consume those PB
&
Js that had now been thoroughly smooshed in our backpack. With muggles in all directions my search was difficult and the camo was good so it took a while. TNLN. Thanks!

peace pipe

By: cooperphoto Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

3:34 pm - Quick find and thankfully so as I was getting exhausted after 4 hours of caching. Signed log. Find nearest cache location. Find cache. Repeat x 33. Thanks!

Battery not included

By: KDcool919 Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

4:09 pm - We lugged our bikes up the wrong trail for this one, only to find a very sensible road at the top. Oh well. The battery was interesting. While I contemplated the various meanings of the hint, Anne pointed to a logical spot that I hadn't seen before and there it was. Nice hide. TNLN. Thanks!

Support Your Troops

By: rtm gang Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

4:53 pm - I'm not sure if I read too much into the title or it was intentional, but I found this one pretty quick. Unfortunately I realized when I went to sign the log that I was missing my favorite pen and my GPS lanyard that it was attached to. [:(] Now I need to track down new ones. TNLN. Thanks for the cache.

Battery with a view

By: KDcool919 & Momagna Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

3:53 pm - We looked around without reading anything for a while and obviously didn't find it. Anne did manage to drop her new sunglasses in the narrow gap between two sections of concrete though. I manged to fish them out with a stick, but there was poison oak down there so I didn't let her wear them for the rest of the day.
Once we read what we had to do, I got to the right spot and poked around, getting pretty dirty in the process. In lieu of a flashlight, I turned up the brightness on my cell phone and spotted it without a problem. Thanks for the interesting hide!

Bowling and Dollars

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

11:26 am - I headed down the hill the hard way for this one. Finally spotted it under the trees. TNLN. Thanks!

Pimiento

By: WRITE SHOP ROBERT Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

5:12 pm - After doing the sister cache to this one, it was very quick. The other one is much easier since there's far less people hanging around. Found the cache and headed for ferry. Thanks!

Rock Crusher

By: momagna Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

3:38 pm - This place looked pretty intimidating for finding a cache. Many, many places to look. I was thankful for the reasonable placement and lack of camo. Thanks for the interesting spot!

Mount Caroline Livermore

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

2:52 pm - I wish I had read who placed this cache - it would have made the hunt a lot shorter. There were four people hanging around the cache area when we arrived, so we weren't sure that we would be able to grab it. We "took in the view" from several angles before I spotted it and signed the log with only a bush inbetween us. TNLN. Thanks!

Post Exchange

By: bthomas Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

11:49 am - We had to do a lot of waiting out of the muggles here. Once there was finally a clearing I found it hanging out where I didn't expect it at first. Thanks!

Stuart Overlook(a.k.a. "Angel Island Central")

By: WRITE SHOP ROBERT Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

11:54 am - We appreciated the forced stop after biking up that hill. When I was here a few years ago, I claimed the Nike Missle site right across the road as a locationless. That was quite a find since there aren't a lot of them around. Found the cache OK then sat down for a snack for continuing on to what seemed like the infinite caches on this island. Thanks!

Pt Stuart - Angel Island

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

4:38 pm - This was my biggest navigational snafu of the day. We went down when we should have gone up. The penalty was having to drag our bikes up a short but steep hill to the road. It was a nice ride after that and it didn't take too long to find the cache and enjoy the view at the same time. TNLN. Thanks!

Olive

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

10:57 am - As I arrived, two cachers were pondering a bush on the side of the road. I helped GeorgiaPNUT and Pot_O_Mus poke around a bit, then headed for the other side of the road. Suddenly the title made sense and we started looking in earnest until GeorgiaPNUT came up with it. I offered my tiny lanyard pen (which I lost later in the day, *sob*) so we could all sign in. I expected to run into them again later on the trail, but we never did as we were
on bikes and they were walking. Thanks for the cache.

Somewhere in Cupertino?

By: catomcat Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

2 pm - Got a hint since my last visit. Found it. Thanks.

Sep 17, 2006

Wally World

By: Team Stamos TKD Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

2:07 pm - I had to wait out a truck ready to make a delivery at first. Dropped digitalfish #4677 and took digialfish #4678. Thanks.

Oak Commons

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

1:09 pm - Nice construction on this one. We checked a few places before I found it. Thanks!

POP #8

By: WeBeDnD Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

10:59 am - I got a bit of a hint on this one to finish it up, but most of it made sense. A bit more reasonable than some others in the series. [;)] Thanks!

Parade of Floats

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

5:09 pm - These were neat. I took the hint a little too lterally and searched the wrong spot. It was an easy grab today. I've never seen City Hall before either, and it's quite nice. Thanks!

Heart on Target

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

1:53 pm - Nice cache, except for the the cigarette inside. I'm not sure why someone would leave one of those in something a kid is likely to find. Removed that. Thanks.

Secret Cemetery

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

1:20 pm - Got lucky and parked within about 3 feet! It fit in well though. Thanks.

The End is near!

By: Pal_Al Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

2:05 pm - Picked up DigitalFish 4677 and returned it to MotorBug who had dropped it here 6 days ago. He was not amused. SMILIE

By 101 without an exit #2

By: woodyrat Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

3:55 pm - MotorBug and I spent a loooong time at this one. The guy at the garden store came over at one point to see if we had found it yet. He asked what kind of container it was and I said I had no idea! While MotorBug was getting a lifeline, I read Nazgul's log and it helped me determine what I was looking for. I put my hand on it with a sigh of relief. Not nice at all!

SJGP: Kerblammo

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

4:58 pm - Quick find on this attempt. Thanks for the cache!

Walk This Way

By: angel827 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

11:56 am - 1st cache of the day with MotorBug. A quick one this one was. Thanks!

Caching in a Parallel Universe

By: dgreno Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

11:00 am - I figured this out alright, but didn't notice the extra bit that would have made the hide a bit easier. Thanks!

Danger Zone

By: Wolf Grrl Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

2:44 pm - Yup, quick one. Thanks.

Christmas Tree Lights II

By: sloigo Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Other

12:36 pm - I was on a roll finding the caches today, but I let MotorBug sign this one after he wandered back from wherever he was looking. [:D] Thanks.

Temple of Doom

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

4:14 pm - Wow, this place really does look like the temple of doom! Interesting multi, thanks for the story.

A Twisted End for a Cache

By: angel827 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

12:13 pm - MotorBug and I had a short walk to this place and I picked up the cache quickly. Thanks.

The BEST Cache ? ?

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

3:01 pm - I was glad MotorBug was with me for this one as I didn't want spend any more time than I needed to poking around amongst the thousands of wasps here. I spotted the cache right away. It was in good shape and I placed it back right where I found it. Thanks.

Auto Isle

By: angel827 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

1:47 pm - Ugggh, this was a painful place to look. I tried to hide between the trucks, but the salesmen were staring at me from all sides. After a while, one of them came over to ask if I had found it yet. Thankfully MotorBug came back, found it, and I didn't even wait around for him to put back. I went and hid in the car.

Did you know?

By: #1 geobears Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

4:20 pm - Hey, this was the same Murphy guy that gave the original name to what is now known as Sunnyvale. MotorBug made the quick find here. Thanks.

SJGP: Turn 4

By: bullit Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

5:01 pm - Hey, why'ja archive all of these? Some of these were pretty good hides! Anyway, thanks!

Uvas Creek Stroll

By: angel827 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

12:22 pm - Well, we should have checked the obvious spot first, but looked in the hard places instead and considered trying to make our way down to the creek. Thanks.

Artsy Craftsy

By: Team Stamos TKD Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

1:56 pm - No need to even turn off the car for this one! Quick sign and return. Thanks.

Heil Kaiser!

By: Nazgul Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

5:17 pm - It's not often that MotorBug helps *me* with a puzzle, but I'll gladly take the returned favor. [}:)] After a long day of caching in the South County we finished up a few downtown. Interesting spot. We were glad to find it before we got too dusty. Thanks!

Egg Roll Square

By: Team Stamos TKD Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

1:28 pm - MotorBug and I debated whether this meant Easter or Chinese. It turned out to be the latter. We wandered a bit, but I found it in not too long. Thanks.

Let ?s Go Surfing

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

4:30 pm - Oh, that's evil. I saw it quickly and breathed in deeply before I grabbed it. Thanks!

Gilroy Volcano III

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

2:57 pm - Oh man, this on was completely covered with ants. Now I'm covered with ants. Closed this one up and ran back as soon as I could. TNLN. Thanks.

Premium Outlets #1

By: Pal_Al Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

3:10 pm - MotorBug was nice enough to hang out here with me while I did this cache he did a few days ago. I made the quick fine and headed off. Thanks.

Saint Louise/Gilroy

By: #1 geobears Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

3:16 pm - Nice craftsmanship on this one. Found it quickly. Thanks.

Saint Louise/Gilroy

By: #1 geobears Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

3:16 pm - Nice craftsmanship on this one. Found it quickly. Thanks.

Yule Log at Christmas Hill Park

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

1:00 pm - Like many others, we tried to get to this one from the wrong side. Once we relocated ourselves, we found the well-camo'd cache, complete with authentic bugs crawling all over it. Yum! TNLN. Thanks.

By 101 without an exit # 3

By: woodyrat Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

3:27 pm - Ha, very cool container. Definitely a first for me. MotorBug had it quickly and we felt the next cache calling. [:D] Thanks!

Renz Park

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

1:15 pm - Neat container. Found it quickly. Thanks!

By the tracks

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

3:59 pm - The caches are coming quickly today. This one was especially quick. Thanks.

By 101 without an exit

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

4:03 pm - I liked the release device on this one. After a quick stop, we were off to the next one. Thanks!

Country Caboose

By: Travieso Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

3:23 pm - What's up with "Uno No Name" Road?? MotorBug has this one wicked fast. Thanks!

Sep 16, 2006

Little Cache of Horrors III

By: Team Nazgul Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

6:31 pm - While I'm driving around caching today, I'm listening to The Two Towers audiobook. I found the creative cache then got back into the car just to hear one part where they keep saying Nazgul over and over again. An omen? Thanks for the cache!

HBJ, the sequel

By: The Storyteller Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

7:17 pm - Well that's an unusual placement for this kind of hide. I managed to spot it though and had to walk a bit from where I parked. Thanks for the fun.

Magellan Be There GPS Adventure 21

By: ltleelim and mjleelim Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

2:45 pm - That's a cool story. Somehow I missed most of that contest.
Speaking of missing things, I really missed the trail on this one. I bushwhacked over and through the bushes to the cache. It was a tough climb. After finding the cache, I thought taking the trail down would be easy. Not so much. I lost the trail and ended up scrambling around until I finally resi
gned myself to heading back down in the opposite direction that I wanted to go. Eventually I made it to the road, so I guess it came out ok. TNLN. Thanks!

Sequoia Sempervirus

By: Changes in Latitudes Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

6:56 pm - I was able to spot the inconsistency right away. That isn't usually the case. Thanks for the cache!

Doerr n't complain about this!

By: Changes in Latitudes Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

6:53 pm - Yeah, the last place was a little too close to private property. I was thankful to have remembered the container. Thanks!

A Highly Repulsive cache

By: Changes in Latitudes Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Other

2:14 pm - On most caches, not reading the description (as I'm likely not to do) makes the cache easier. For this one, I think it helped not to know what was going on. Found the final quickly. Phew! TNLN. Thanks!

Behind 24

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

6:45 pm - I looked around a bit and then noticed something worth investigation. Bingo. Unfortunately the retrievement mechanism broke when I pulled it out. I reattached it, but it's probably not as well secured as it should be. I took out the blue wrist band because I couldn't fit it back in. Thanks.

McAbee Trailhead

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

4:47 pm - I'm done hiking for the day and I'm heading down the trail when I see a bobcat in the wild for the first time crossing the road. Pretty cool.
It was amazing to see all the houses being built near here. The last time I was here it was still the old farm.

Amazingly I spent more time waiting out muggles than looking for the cache. I was happy to get out of there and away from the annoying flies anyway. Thanks the bit of evil.

Conjuction Junction

By: sammydee Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

3:32 pm - I came by here on my loop a bit earlier in the day, but there was a guy talking on a cell phone on the bench. I thought you came out here to get away from technology? (Says the guy with the GPSr and Treo.) It was easy once I didn't have an audience. Thanks!

Go to the Head of the Cache

By: STP Ron Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

2:07 pm - Found this one without much trouble. A good start to a nice hike!

Zone of Serenity

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

3:43 pm - Excellent placement for a bench! I poked around and found the cache. I trashed out the Nutter Butter inside and replaced it with a pair of headphones. Thanks!

UB: Guerilla Warfare - Arms Cache

By: Team Nazgul Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

5:16 pm - I found it! I found it! I definitely wasn't coming back here for a 5th time, so I'm glad I did. I think I've tried find it in each of its 3 incarnations too. The hint was very precise and straightforward once I figured out my compass directions. Phew!

Vote for Senator

By: STP Ron Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

2:26 pm - Well, I went to the old calulated coordinates first and didn't find anything. It might be good to put this right in the calculations. I found it OK in the real spot. Thanks.

WOW! Look what I found.

By: ProTechCC Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Not chosen

3:22 pm - I definitely took the wrong trail to this one. I had to delicately walk down the hillside to the correct trail, trying (but definitely failing) to avoid the poison oak. By the time I got to the cache, I had stickers all over and flies swarming around me. Needless to say, I signed the log and got out of there ASAP! Thanks!

Hey We Did It!

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

3:01 pm - Nice job on the trail. Actually I have one complaint - couldn't you make it less steep? [;)] No? Alright. Thanks anyway!

Above Almaden Valley

By: ProTechCC Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

4:07 pm - This one wasn't bad to get to. I just followed the road on my topo map that no longer existed. Nice views indeed from up here. Thanks!

Communication Lines

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

3:51 pm - I can't believe shadow101 would get within 150 feet of a cache and not go for it. I'd crawl through 150 feet of hot barbed wire if there was a cache that close!
Wow, it's definitely been a while since I've been back to this area of the park - this cache has been here for almost 2 years. TNLN. Thanks!

Agnews Water

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

10:19 am - I was searching around for this one when I noticed something itchy on my legs. They were covered with what looked like fleas. Yikes! I was plucking them off myself for hours afterwards. Glad I got this one before it went bye-bye. Thanks.

Meneely Bell Company

By: bullit Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

10:10 am - I did a short tour of Cisco before I found the correct entrance to this place. It was pretty quiet here today. Thanks.

The King And Queen Are Sleeping

By: airshadowshow Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

10:55 am - I can confirm that there is parking very close to this cache. I can also confirm that I did not find it. I hiked in the long way, but at least I got on the right side of the creek. I turned right too soon and ended up right next to a homeless camp. I was going to give up and try the other side of the creek another day when I decided to walk a bit further down for the heck of it. There was clear trail and direct shot to the cache. Found it alright once I got there. TNLN. Thanks!

My noontime walking route.... #2

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

9:59 am - What a strange contraption of a container. While I was putting it back, I noticed someone walking across the street that looked a whole lot like a guy I used to work with 10 years ago. Later I emailed him and I was right. Even more bizarre was that I ran into someone else from that company the day before in Palo Alto. I guess this is the place to be. Thanks.

A Rose is a Rose

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

1:29 pm - Huh, I guess I learned a word from the hint. Of course it didn't make any sense when I was there. Found it OK anyway. Thanks!

Bricks

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

10:26 am - The puzzle wasn't too bad and the camo was unique. I've always wondered how to get over here. Thanks!

Hey, Abbott! Where's Marie?

By: DuckeyLee Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

11:44 am - Spent a few dirty minutes looking around and then I saw it clearly. Hint: no need to poke around inside. Thanks.

in the morning shadow of the great mall???? - CITO

By: howeler Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

11:13 am - Searched around for a bit until I unearthed the container. I left some clip on sunglasses that may have been dropped by a cacher. Perhaps they will return to pick them up. Thanks.

Passage to India

By: pdx55 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

1:35 pm - Quick find. Thanks for the view!

Houseboat Hangout

By: WalruZ & Buckydef Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

3:22 pm - We arrived way ahead of gametime today, so we found some free parking far away and did a few caches on the way in. This one was interesting. Boy you sure love those multis! TNLN. Thanks!

A Nice View of SF

By: workerofwood Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 5.0 Container: Not chosen

2:26 pm - It took us a little while to locate the cam. TeamAlamo saw us on the camera before we knew where we had to go. Complaints about the lack of zoom in the picture should be directed to the world's #1 cacher. SMILIE

Heron's Head Park

By: AuntFlora/WalruZ Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

1:47 pm - Apparently the local bikers meet here on Sunday afternoons. The parking lot was full of them when we arrived and we could barely get out when we left. As we drove off there were groups of bikes all converging in the lot. It was loud and crazy, but they were nice.
As for the cache, we had a nice walk out to the cache and almost all the way to the point. TNLN. Thanks!

CalTrain - 22nd. St.

By: normanb Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

2:12 pm - I tried this one a long time ago, but it was dark and scary out so we left quickly. Today it was a bright and sunny day, making the cache easy to find. Thanks.

Jdsinger ?s Fairoaks Park

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

2:37 pm - DNF. Lots of dust and nasty things in there, so we didn't look too long.

Don't Stop Here!

By: CTomGeo Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

2:47 pm - We biked our way up here and watched the cars down below. Found it in short order after a few muggle crossings. Thanks!

East Pond

By: MotorBug Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

12:29 pm - I don't think I've ever seen so many ducks in my life. There were thousands of them out here. Nice day for a bike ride. Found it no problem, TNLN. Thanks!

West Pond

By: MotorBug Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

1:26 pm - While looking for this one I found something else that looked very interesting. Look for it soon in a cache near you! The hint was helpful and we found this one our our tour to claim Baylands Teamwork. Thanks!

They Call This Art? -

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

4:02 pm - I had attempted this one once before but there were too many people around. Today I got lucky and was able to grab it. I remember the cache that used to be here... TNLN. Thanks.

Baylands Teamwork

By: bytemobile Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

1:46 pm - This was a really fun and interesting multi. While we had two people and two bikes and two cell phones, we wanted to do it together so we ended up going around the loop 1.5 times. One of the stages was completely surrounded by spiderwebs and I my legs were complete covered with sticky webs and bug carcasses. We got lucky at one point and found an intermediate by accident. I think it actually just made things more confusing as we then had more waypoints to keep track of.
Near the end we had the longitude, but not the latitude, so we checked a few spots along the way. All we found was a lot of old friskies cans. The final was nice and not too far out of the way. TNLN. Thanks for the fun adventure out there!

Sunnyvale's Trash

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

12:48 pm - It took me a minute to remember the acronym and then I found it quickly. Thanks.

Upper Sheep Camp Trail

By: mjp303 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

5:01 pm - Nice hidden trail up here. I'd like to to follow it further down some day. Thanks!

ITSA #2A

By: JDUDE250 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

2:22 pm - This place was.. ummm... scenic? Pretty quick find though. Thanks.

RWC Dome

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

2 pm - When I arrived, there was a guy working on tearing apart the sidewalk. He was working right next to the cache, so I came back later when he was working in a different area. Heavy! Thanks for the cache.

Deer View

By: ehoover Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

6:23 pm - Well, I didn't see any deer this evening, but I did follow their trails, mostly into people's backyards. I eventually got back onto the trail and followed it right to the cache. TNLN. Thanks!

College View Cache

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

3:56 pm - This was a quiet and friendly neighborhood, perhaps more so before the geocachers found it. SMILIE Thanks.

The D.P.C.

By: Bob Cat Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

1:01 pm - This one was a bit odd, but it was easy once I consulted the logs. Thanks.

in R.P.

By: Bob & Elliecat Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

6:40 pm - The first time I was here, ground zero was occupied by vagrants. I tried to wait them out with a visit into Radio Shack. They were still there.
I came back later and it the place was empty and the cache was still there. Thanks.

Port Of Redwood City Redux

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

12:44 pm - I really wasn't sure about sticking my hand in there, but I did and ended up with a cache. Cool beans. TNLN. Thanks.

Happy Valentine's Day

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

1:37 pm - My GPSr's compass was doing strange things and eventually pointed me exactly in the opposite direction of the cache. I guess it's time to calibrate again. Thanks.

The Easter Bunny's Favorite Cache

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

1:47 pm - Uh oh, got caught. I was preoccupied with the couple in the car parked close by that I completely didn't see the 3 homeless people having a picnic across the stream from the cache. When I looked up, one of them was looking right at me and was very interested in what I was doing. He told his friends what he saw and they started looking at me too.
I was pretty sure the location was compromised, so I took the cache and rehid it a few hundred feet away at the above coordinates. Sorry about that, I didn't want to see a good cache get taken!

Carlos Theater

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

2:33 pm - Getting some consistent coordinates was the hardest part of this one. Thanks for the history.

"belly up"

By: Bob & Elliecat Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

3:00 pm - I'm glad this place was closed when I arrived and that made it a quick grab. Thanks.

Patricia Wharton Park #2

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

3:47 pm - I've seen this type of camo many times, but this one was pretty believable. I checked it "just in case". Nicely done. Thanks for the cache.

This Sucks Too!

By: WeBeDnD Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

Since your caches are obviously so original and interesting I thought my comment would be taken as so absurd that I could only be joking. Or was I? [;)]

"Lick it"

By: Bob & Elliecat Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

3:29 pm - I just couldn't resist. After I found the cache, I had to stop in for a cone. And it was good. Thanks.

"Paper or Plastic ?"

By: Bob & Elliecat Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

4:12 pm - Busy place. Left a small treasure chest I couldn't fit back into another cache. Thanks.

"open 24hrs" or "Smell the Coffee"

By: Bob & Elliecat Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

3:09 pm - Missed it on my first pass, got it on my second. Thanks.

Hillside Maze

By: TimberToo Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

5:39 pm - This is a maze indeed! I headed for this one from the trailhead and ended up on the berry trail. At least I knew which trail NOT to take to get here when I backtracked. TNLN. Thanks!

Upper Middle Trailhead - Belmont OS

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

5:44 pm - I found this one on my way out. Quick one. Thanks!

Berry Trail

By: mjp303 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

5:28 pm - Like some others, I passed over the cache at first. The second time I looked more closely and found it. Tough one. Thanks!

Big Pappa

By: crazywatson Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

6:01 pm - This was a nice cache to end the day's hiking with. The Cachoid TB was cool! TNLN. Thanks.

Upper Water Dog Trailhead

By: PurplePeople Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

5:51 pm - I was planning to hit this one on the way back, but I saw something suspicious on the way down. Hoping it was a puzzle cache, I checked it out and realized it was this cache. Oh well. Thanks for the cache.

Hillcrest Circle Park

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

2:45 pm - The good news is that this cache survived the recent block party held in the park. I remember the previous cache in this park. Thanks!

Hallmark Park

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

5:09 pm - After a month with no finds, I'm pleased to report that the cache is still there. I TNLN and CITO'd a beer can. Thanks!

Y Palm Park

By: leafe65 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

1:28 pm - There were two homeless in the park, but the kids running around were more of a problem. This one seems like it will be hard to stick around for a long time as it's quite obvious to any kid who ends up back here. TNLN. Thanks.

Pizza: NOT on the Menu

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

3:39 pm - I expected the cache to be at a pizza place, not a pancake place. Therefore, how about a strawberry waffle pizza with maple syrup. It actually doesn't sound that bad... Thanks for the cache.

Top Of Ralston

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

4:50 pm - Nice view from up here! Found it quickly and TNLN. Thanks!

Pacific Shores Zoo

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

12:22 pm - Checked a few places and found the nice hide. TNLN. Thanks!

Hidden Canyon Hideaway

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

4:25 pm - I find it amazing that there are mountain lions wandering around in this valley surrounded by houses. Thankfully I didn't run into any today. Found the cache easily. TNLN. Thanks!

Secret Shoreline

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

12:32 pm - I don't know what was going on here today, but the place was packed! I could barely find a parking spot. Nice camo on this one. Thanks!

Sep 3, 2006

A Test

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

This one flummoxed me a bit and I even made up another cache based on a solution that didn't quite fit. MotorBug and I made the grab. Thanks!

...with a twist

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

7:19 pm - Even if the neighbors are in on this, I wasn't comfortable searching with two people painting a fence right next to the cache. Another time.

E.B.S.B #2 Cache Cloning

By: CrazyOn2Wheels Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

12:39 pm - This area has been turned into a public toilet unfortunately. We carefully avoided the nastiness and searched carefully. After a few minutes I spotted it and slapped my forehead for missing such a cache. We had a good laugh when we opened it. Thankfully MotorBug was quick to find the log. Thanks!

Hard and Brown

By: Rocket Girl Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

7:33 pm - I tried a few different hard and brown things before I found it. I removed the treasure chest because it made the container even harder to get out. Thanks.

De Anza Bonanza

By: Team Ottlet Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

6:57 pm - I seem to remember a cache at the air raid siren here at one point. This one turned out to be pretty easy for me. TNLN. Thanks!

Happy Birthday JoeSpaz #37

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

1:45 pm - It's funny to see the legend of JoeSpaz live beyond his caching lifetime. I managed to grab it right away. Thanks!

Just Hangin' Around

By: Fremont Claassens Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

1:12 pm - We were looking for something evil, then I was surprised to find it easily visible. Thanks.

GeoFusion Leaves

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

7:45 pm - An alarm was going off outside the building next door, so I questioned whether or not I should be snooping around in the bushes. It didn't take long for me to find it though. TNLN. Thanks.

Long Distance

By: Fremont Claassens Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

1:04 pm - It's great to find a nice and easy puzzle cache every once in a while. MotorBug saw the appropriate location right away. 50 cents now? Geez, what ever happened to a dime? Thanks!

This Sucks Too!

By: WeBeDnD Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

6:23 pm - Well, there's something to be said for the consistency in your caches.

Coffee Anyone #3

By: Rocket Girl Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

7:45 pm - Last one on a long day of caching. Thanks for the cache close to home.

Seven Hills Speedway, Union City

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

3:35 pm - As we were gathering the info for this, some people came up to us and asked us if we were here to "fix the park." Sadly, no, but it is a pretty cool park. No problem finding the final either. TNLN. Thanks!

Happy 50th Birthday, Fremont!

By: BuckyD, Chipino, Fremont Claassens & WalruZ Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

4:22 pm - That's quite a tour. Thanks for the history lesson! TNLN.

In Stitches

By: WalruZ, BuckyDef & Geo Baby Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

4:11 pm - MotorBug told me there was a bit of a controversy about this one. Glad to see it's still there. Thanks.

Blanston's Stinker

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

12:53 pm - On Oct 23, 2005, MotorBug posted this in his log for this cache: "I love finding the ones that Boulter has a DNF on. Okay, I'll probably get some grief about this!"
Oh yes you will MotorBug. Your penance is coming back with me and helping me find it. Today the bushes were a bit thinner and it was a pretty quick find. Thanks.

Centerville Depot Solo

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

1:58 pm - Lots of options for cameras here and lots of options for capturing my image. I settled on grabbing it from my Treo. Cool webcam!

Bert the Turtle

By: L-grl Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

7:07 pm - The sun was low and blinding today, making people drive very slowly. Thankfully that didn't affect my ability to find the cache. The barking dog was annoying though. TNLN. Thanks.

Lilie & Lois's

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

4:36 pm - First to solve, 16th to find, a year and a few months later. MotorBug helped me find this even though he had forgotten where he found it. Glad to finally get this one done! Thanks for the interesting puzzle.

Alameda Creek #1

By: Blanston12 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

3:56 pm - MotorBug grabbed a Slurpee while I went over to grab this one. Nice hide. Thanks.

Scooct

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

12:20 pm - MotorBug and me approached the cache location and as luck would have it, two families were loading their cars. To kill some time, we went inside and grabbed some lunch. I love their churros. As we ate I grabbed the cache and signed the log. Nice container. When I tried to clean trash out of the cache, MotorBug accused me of throwing out "DirtBag's sig item." Funny guy. TNLN. Thanks!

We Bad!

By: JimmiGee Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

12:29 pm - This was an interesting hide. I never had to take my watch off in order to grab a cache. It's still barely accessible while the construction is going on. Thanks.

Bart: Union City Station

By: Blanston12 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

3:15 pm - MotorBug was nice enough to make a return trip to this one so I could make the quick grab. A quick one it was. Thanks!

Sep 2, 2006

Wine Cache

By: Jdieas347 and Angel827 Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

6:26 pm - Now that's a funny place for a winery. Where do they grow all the grapes? Anyway, interesting spot, found the the cache OK. Thanks!

SC Fire - Agnew Station

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

2:04 pm - This one moved a bit since my last DNF. I was having trouble with it and then it just appeared in a most unexpected place. If it works, then why not? Thanks.

Beneath Me

By: workerofwood Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

6:18 pm - Not only did I find this one on my first pass, but while still moving as a family of muggles were right behind me. I signed the log in a safer place then put it back on my way back to the car. Thanks for the interesting spot!

Got Bugs? II

By: bullit & mickeychopchop Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

3:15 pm - As I approached ground zero for this one, I noticed a guy near where my GPSr was pointing me. As I got closer, I noticed he was doing one of the worst imitations of "a guy talking on a cell phone and casually looking around on the ground" I've seen. I called his bluff and reintroduced myself to CTomGeo. [:D] He did all the hard work for me and then we chatted on the way back to our cars, parked right next to each other. TNLN. Thanks!

Guadalupe River Wave Berms

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

4:19 pm - I parked in a place that I shouldn't have which made me nervous. After walking further than I had to, I wandered around without a clear signal. Then I saw a Jeep driving down the pathway in my direction. I quickly headed across the path and up the hill out of the way. As the Jeep passed, the Ranger inside got on his bullhorn and told me to stay on the paths. Alright, fine. When he was gone I went back down the path to the cache, found it, and got out of there. Thanks for the excitement.

Serious Attachments

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

4:38 pm - I found it without incident between muggle crossings. The magnet was in good shape. Thanks for the cache and racing education.

Northern CA Solar System Model: Luna

By: shadow101 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

6:42 pm - I got lucky on this one and saw something shiny within seconds of starting to look. As I signed the log, all I could think of was "it's only a flesh wound!" Thanks for the fun.

Cheechoo Cache

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

2:31 pm - I parked in one spot, realized I couldn't get there from here, then drove around to find a better spot. Found the cache with no issues. TNLN. Thanks!

Numbers Don't Matter

By: Rocket Girl Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

3:33 pm - Finding the cache wasn't too hard. Opening it took a while. I finally figured out the mechanism and got inside. Thanks for the original container!

No Swings?

By: Team_Unicycle Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

6:03 pm - I remember this park from the last cache that was here. Thankfully it was empty today. Nice paint job on this though I worry about things getting wet. TNLN. Thanks!

Taz's Teaser

By: redkat Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

2:44 pm - After a short walk I arrived at the cache location and started poking around. In checking one of the standard hides I felt something. Ah ha! I began pulling out "the cache" and felt something strange - a sharp pinch on my finger. Then another. What I had found was actually a wasp nest. Run away! Run away!! Thankfully the wasps did not follow and my stings were not bad. Reading the hint, I found it quickly after. TNLN. Thanks for the less in where not to stick my fingers.

SJGP: Klag

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

5:31 pm - I was here just a few weeks ago for the Survival Research Labs show. It took me quite a while to find this. Eventually it just took looking at the right angle. Thanks!

Confluence Park

By: bullit Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

4:56 pm - I parked way far away for this one, so I had a bit of a walk. Once there I found it OK. They did a really nice job on this area. Thanks.

Lonely Bench

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

7:32 pm - Wow, that hillside was slippery. If that fence wasn't there, I surely would have ended up in the water. Found the cache OK and then called it a day. Thanks for the capper.

Coffee Anyone #2

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

2:17 pm - Wow, nice hide. I didn't know where a cache could be hidden here, but this spot fit nicely. Thanks!

SiRF-Cache

By: Peter@SiRF Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

3:47 pm - Cool, I didn't know these guys were local. I was looking carefully for it and then I was shocked at how big it was once I saw it. Cool stuff inside, but read the booklets and TNLN. Thanks!

Akebelons NEC Steps

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

3:00 pm - I'm sure glad you have permission to put this cache here. I felt pretty strange here. Thankfully it was a quick find. TNLN. Thanks!

Roast Beeef

By: Team_Unicycle Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

5:54 pm - With the title in my mind, I somehow convinced myself that this place smelled like roast beef. Mmmmmm. Perhaps I was just hungry. Anyway, found it without trouble and TNLN. Thanks for the nice thoughts of juicy meat.

HOLY

By: WeBeDnD Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

1:45 pm - I went to find some caches today and couldn't find my GPS. I thought my wife had it so I improvised with the Bluetooth GPS, my Treo, and CacheNav. I'll blame my poor parking for the cache on the fact that I didn't have any maps on my Treo. After a little walk I found the cache in a place that looked just right for the puzzle. The container was quite ornate. Thanks!

The Circle of Life (La Vida Es Un Circo)

By: AF911 and Fried-Neurons Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

5:08 pm - This was some unexpected art. Did someone flunk their anatomy class? Easy find though, so thanks!

High Water

By: bullit Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

5:42 pm - The last time I DNF'd this cache was almost exactly a year ago. I remember the downtown streets being closed for the same Tapestry Festival. Thankfully, the cache was there one year later and it was a quick one. TNLN. Thanks!
