Found it in about 5 minutes or so. Fairly quiet here today with a few raindrops falling.

Nov 15, 2003

Eagle Park

By: DavidT21 & Fisherwoman Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Too many people around on my lunchtime visit, so I came back today and was able to search.

Wind in the Willows

Lots of folks coming and going today.

Nov 13, 2003

Shockley Semiconductor

Nov 12, 2003

The Cuesta Quest

By: A and Joseph Ruff (Adopted by MotorBug) Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

Good coordinates, easy find. Thanks for taking me there.

Nov 10, 2003

Bell Air

By: WeBeDnD Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

On my first try, I gave up on the final location. Then I solved one of WeBeDnD's other caches, Snail Mail, and all became clear.

Snail Mail

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

I parked next to it, but it took me a few minutes since this was the first of this type I had seen.

Nov 8, 2003

The Little Easy

By: MotorBug Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

No rain right now, but the log is a bit damp.

Nov 4, 2003

Encinal Park

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

Got it on my second visit, after pondering the clue. Clever!

Nov 2, 2003

Steven's Creek Button Exchange

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

My GPSr didn't get me very close, but found it with the hint. This cache provided me the incentive to bike the length of the trail.

Find the S in Stevens Creek

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

This one took me two tries, even with the hint. The first time, I thought for sure the cache was gone.

To Be Continued

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

I give. I'm going to wait for someone else to find it before I try again.

Nov 1, 2003

Seek Side

By: Kreebelle & Kids Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

Soccer game today, but the hiding place offers some privacy.

Catch a Rainbow

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

My GPSr took me for a little walk around the park, but with the hint, I found it without too much trouble.

Oct 30, 2003

Another Walk in the Park

By: forman (adopted by budd-rdc) Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

I sat down at Stonehenge and pondered for a couple minutes, then it came to me.

Oct 27, 2003

$80 Million Later...

By: Equinox 2002 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

[Got it on my way home from work.] With a green box in green ivy, you have to look closely.

Ardent Computer Corporation

By: boren Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

Got this one on a noontime walk from work.

Oct 26, 2003

Met Creep yet?

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

I had to come back a second time with the clue.

Prove It! Golden Dragon test

By: ~Ninja~ Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

Took me a while, but I finally found it.

A PARKLAND VISIT

By: garyhenry Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Grabbed it fairly quickly. This was my first visit to this park.

Coin Currency Exchange

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

I'm also surprised this one hasn't disappeared from its exposed location.

The Prospector

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

Looks like I'm following mharrigan today. Found it quickly.

The People Zone

By: garyhenry Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Made a fairly quick grab after a minor problem with my GPSr.

Oct 25, 2003

Hanging Around

By: Gymnast8 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Other

Found it fairly quickly, after wasting a half hour on Midnight Memorial, just down the hill. Nice spot!

Midnight Memorial

By: Jim and Cecilia Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

Spent about a half hour rooting around under the bushes along the trail, but came up with nothing.

Oct 24, 2003

Dead Poets' Society

By: ~Ninja~ Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

Easy find, but there was only an empty film canister with no cap.

West Side Story

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

This was a longer tour than my initial expectations. Took a while to find the cache. I believe Waypoint #4 has been made obsolete by park renovations, but the value is easy to guess.

Just around the corner

By: ~Ninja~ Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

My very first find. The contents were very surprising.
