3:33 pm - We came in the wrong way to do this one going up, so we did it on the way back. It was easy enough and I found it in good condition. TNLN. Thanks.

What I wouldn't do for a Geocoin - Letterbox

4:35 pm - Quickest letter box ever! As I was orienting myself to the start I found the second stage and the cache. Thanks!

TA@10K #6000: Trail? What Trail?

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

2:59 pm - We definitely went too far up the stream. We got to the point where the stream forked and realized that this would have been in the description. We backtracked and looked for suspicious ferns. I happened to notice something a little strange near one and found the cache. Wow, great camo. TNLN. We didn't see three logs near the cache site, but just using the boulders, it's not hard to find. Thanks!

Embarcadero Bug Depot

By: OneAngryPuppy and Frivlas Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

5:16 pm - There was a group of protestors on the corner regarding the latest scheduled execution. As I waited for the crosswalk, I appeared to join them!
I got the first few clues, but couldn't figure out what the 8 and 10s used to be, so I went for the hint. Nice big cache here. Too bad I forgot my TBs again, so TNLN. Thanks!

Cap'n Jack's Silver Treasure Chest

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

4:11 pm - I must be truly insane. What do I do after a 15 mile deathmarch? Run off, pay 5 bucks and race the sun over 2 miles to grab two more caches. It was a brisk hike over here, but I found the cache quickly. TNLNSL and picked up the pace to get back before they closed. 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!

Summer Beach Stamp

By: Chickasaw of ynots4 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

7:47 am - At first I started looking with just the coordinates and thought this was a bad place for a cache. Once I read the description it made a lot more sense. Cool area. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Walk Like a Duck

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

8:55 am - I took the shortcut to this one over the fence. The way back was a bit tougher. I found it quickly. I don't know how you did this and I don't think I really want to know. Evil stuff. I appreciate your mercy in placing it here. TNLNSL. Thanks.

Stairway to Heaven III

By: Anton Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

1:51 pm - I checked my GPSr as I arrived at my brother in law's apartment after his graduation and saw that I was just about on top of this cache. We took a quick jaunt down a few houses and up the stairs. When I got to the top, I didn't find heaven, but I was seeing stars!
The cache was well hidden and it took a while before Mike finally saw it. I need to get me a stamp! Thanks.
