Dahling, I Love You But Give Me Fifth Avenue!

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

5:40 pm - I was amazed that I was able to do all 4 caches downtown here in 45 min. It helped that the 2nd stage was right near where I parked! TNLN. Thanks.

As Seen from the Sky! II

By: jimbexleyspeed and mjp303 Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

2:57 pm - This was a fun but tough one! We wandered around for quite a while until my Mom finally found it just as we were about to give up. TNLN. Thanks for putting a new cache here!

twice

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

3:53 pm - I spent way too long on this one. I couldn't figure out if I was supposed to multiply or prepend the numbers. Finally got it though, thanks.

The Praying Monk

By: Team Toga Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

1:28 pm - I never did see the monk and the cache took a while to find, but I eventually got it. The coordinates were very good among these large towers of rock. Thanks!

Pinardville Beavercut

By: Grampa Cardigan Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 4.0 Container: Regular

1:47 pm - That was an interesting walk down to the cache, but probably not worth a full 4 stars. Maybe with some snow on the ground it would be tougher. We did not know about the rail trail here. Thanks!

The Monk's Treasure

By: Grampa Cardigan Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

2:54 pm - We did quite a bit of driving around the campus for this one, trying not to go the wrong way down the one-way roads. We went the wrong way on the trail and ended up bushwhacking a bit. Then we looked hard in the rocks to find it barely hidden close by in a more more obvious spot. TNLN. Thanks!

PINARDVILLE MULTI

By: Kayak Kouple Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

1:21 pm - We had fun seeing these spots in Pinardville. Besides the grocery stores and the bowling alley, I haven't spent much time here. Found it OK too. TNLN. Thanks!

Dark Satanic Mills

By: angevine (proudly adopted by muchado) Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

10:40 am - The owner let us know what mistake we made and it was an easy find not too far away from where we were looking. We enjoyed the tour and the history. Thanks!

Black Brook Cache

By: Omnipower321 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

1:12 pm - We had a nice walk around this pond that we had never been to before. We couldn't find the second waypoint, but read the logs and figured we could find the 3rd easily and we did. The last one was easily found. On the way back we ran into some other caches who managed to dig out the 2nd waypoint. We stopped by on the way back to see where it was. TNLN. Thanks for the walk!

Cullerot Park

By: nhviper Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

12:22 pm - This cache is a block away from my parents' house, so it was first on our list for the day. We had a lot of trouble with the first waypoint not knowing what we were looking for. Finally my Mom spotted the coordinates. In the end each one of us found a different stage. TNLN. Thanks!

General Stark

By: W42.COM Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

2:52 pm - Boy, this one really made you work! We found all the waypoints except we messed up one of the counts at one stage, but the coordinate were so far off that we realized our mistake quickly. We had never been down here, so it was fun to explore this area, even next to the "Architecturally Secure" facility. TNLN. Thanks!

Dark Satanic Mills

By: angevine (proudly adopted by muchado) Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

7:26 pm - We had fun driving between all the waypoints here, but in the end came up empty. We hope to give it another try soon!

Mt. Hope Cemetery

By: crawburr Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

11:22 am - While MotorBug tried to brute force this one, I found the actual coordinates. Cheaters never win! TNLN. 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 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!

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.

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!
