Pike Never Made It!

3:31 pm - My, it was cold up here. I don't think I've ever been up this high without the comfort of the interior of an airplane! I was bit puzzled to find the plaque missing, but I could see where it was, so I got a shot of that. Thanks!

Green Key

By: Fred Langa Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 5.0 Container: Virtual

2:11 pm - This was one hell of an adventure. We only had a few hours left before our cruise ship left and this looked like a fun cache to do. Our plan was to use our snorkeling equipment to swim out to the island, run over to the cache, swim back, return the rental car and get back on the ship. We put all out stuff in a backpack and triple bagged the camera, GPS and cell phone. Also in the bag were shoes for walking on the island. These were a very good idea as the rocks on the island were sharp!

The swim went ok with flippers and we made it on the island in about 30 minutes. Our electr onics were dry. It then took us another 40 minutes or so to walk across the Key to the cache to get the picture and get back.

When we returned to the beach to put our snorkeling equipment back on, some other people had come over on a boat; they looked at us like we were crazy. Off we went and we w ere back on the island proper in another 35 minutes. We quickly got our stuff together and raced back to dock.

I took a wrong turn and we got stuck in some nasty traffic, making it a bit more stressful for us. When returning the car, we couldn't find one set of flippers. Crap, I left them on the roof of the car back at the beach. There was no time to go back for them, so we finished the paperwork and rushed back to the ship. It seems that a lot of other people were late too, so we made it ok, but it sure was exciting! Thanks for the adventure!

6:21 pm - There was a person inches from the object in question and I think he thought I was staring at him as I walked by and recorded the info needed for the find. It was a beautiful place to watch the sunset though. Thanks!

NE ON THE STRIP

1:49 pm - I had never been over to this part of Vegas before. I should come again when it's dark. I'm pretty sure I found the intended object, even if the coordinates pointed down the block a bit. In other news, we won $10 at the Golden Nugget. Thanks for the cache!
