Apr 25, 2004

Stevens Creek Cache

By: camnpete Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

By: The Xeroids Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

Wow, this cache took some work. The views were pretty nice this morning. Thanks.

San Andreas Fault Cache (Stevens Creek Canyon)

By: TeamMule! Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

I never had a reason to drive up this canyon before. Thanks for the trip.

Lost Paradise

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

This is another area I would have missed without geocaching. Thank for the trip. The cache was exposed, so I covered it better. It should still be an easy find.

Apr 23, 2004

Ponder

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Thanks for the cache. I would have overlooked the pond and Nature Center without it.

Girlie Pants' Cache

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

Had a weak GPS signal here, but had no trouble finding the cache. Ran into a little swarm of mosquitos here. TNLNSL.

Bobwire Bobcat

By: DrHugAlot Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

This was a great place to be on a clear, bright morning. TNLNSL.

Coal Creek Open Space Preserve ~ MROSD

By: MROSD (adopted from Jim and Jeanette) Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

This is a very sweet spot to sit and enjoy the view. The weather was clear and sunny. TNLNSL.

Crazy Pete's Money Cache

By: Jim and Jeanette Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

Saw this one coming from about 100' away. Thanks for the cache. TNLNSL.

Farewell CA Cache

By: Punsmann (Adopted by Marky) Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

I headed straight under the nearby structure, then had a look at my GPSr and headed for the cache. The coordinates were right on. TNLNSL.

Born Free

By: Mark and Alex Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Not chosen

Had no trouble with this one. It was the first of the morning for me. Thanks for the cache. TNLNSL.

Eddie the 1st Returns!

By: bgantner afear (adopted by bullit) Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

This spot is only about 0.3 miles from Horseshoe Lake as the crow flies. Unfortunately, this old crow doesn't fly. My GPSr zeroed out about 15 feet away, but it wasn't hard to find.

Christmas in July

By: kablooey Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I was expecting a twist and was not disappointed. I got lucky and found this one fairly quickly.

Apr 22, 2004

Spur of the Moment 2

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

This is the park where I walk my dogs on weekends, so I came by and had a look when it popped up as a new cache in my area.

Apr 20, 2004

Flyway Reststop II

By: Mr. Ranger/Team Shadow Cat Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

This was a very nice break in the middle of a day spent at my desk.

The Dump

By: Joseph Ruff Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

This is a very peaceful spot. I took the last picture on the roll.

Rhino Eels 2

By: Dale (Mengarelliott/2) Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Did not find wasp nest, black widow spiders, or the cache.

Apr 17, 2004

Computer History Anyone?

By: Jim and Jeanette Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Quick grab on a quiet Saturday morning.

PEZtacular view

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

I thought the cover was just fine. It certainly kept me looking for a while. Lots of folks enjoying the view on this showery Saturday.

Northern CA Solar System Model: Planet Jupiter

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

This is my first of the series.

Northern CA Solar System Model: Shoemaker-Levy

By: bthomas (Maintained by kindredlaugh) Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Another stop along my trip through the solar system.

Northern CA Solar System Model: Ganymede

By: bthomas (Maintained by kindredlaugh) Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

Stopped by after a visit to Jupiter.

CalTrain - San Antonio

By: normanb Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

I'm not terribly fond of thrashing through the ivy, but I was in the area and decided to give it a shot.

Sci-Fi & Fantasy Book Cache

By: artadams & belrose (adopted by Streetwalker1) Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

Thanks for the little tour. Lots of people were out and about on this showery Saturday, but no problem finding and examining the cache.

Silicon Valley Slept Here

By: Marty Fouts Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

I had been wanting to stop by the famous garage ever since I heard that it had an historical marker. Thanks for the tour.

Apr 16, 2004

Love

By: The Rat Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

I'm going to have to start attending BADGES dinners. Thanks for the puzzle.

...by any other name...

By: ChrissySkyking + Blaze Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I also came here after finding the new cache in the area, and was glad I did. This is a very nice area with some interesting displays.

Go With The Flow

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

I waited a couple minutes for the rain to abate, then headed out and found it quick. Thanks for the cache!

Haunted Toys

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

Came by here after finding a couple other nearby caches. Parked in front of it and found it fairly quickly, with no one nearby to see.

Black Adder

By: The Rat Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Grabbed it at lunchtime. I was afraid it might be archived like some other Rat puzzles.

Apr 10, 2004

View Seeker-Monte Bello

By: Tonton-Ca Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

I had a little trouble with this one. The coordinates were right on, but I didn't look from the right angle. Also, an empty ziploc bag about 10 feet away was diverting my attention. The log is somewhat useable, but still soggy.

Monte Bello

By: Jish (adopted by PurplePeople) Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

This was my first stop today. This is a nice spot and the bench is handy for examining the cache.

Noblest Pomelo

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

Nice out-of-the-way spot for a cache. This was the last of four for me today, hiking in from Page Mill Road. Thanks for the cache.

Dark Overlook

By: PhilippeGPS (maintained by trode) Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

This was my first Black Mountain visit, and I enjoyed the view and seeing all the antennas up close. Thanks for the cache.

Apr 9, 2004

Cover all the Bases

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

Very nice puzzle. My first attempt at the cache was during a Little League game. This morning was much easier.

Apostrophe

By: The Rat Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Still working my way through the Rat caches. Here's my example: Fellowship of the Ring, GC4695, November 2, 2003:

From the deep holds of the cache we liberated the left shoe travel bug in the hopes of mating it with it's counterpart to venture forth anew.

Cat's Hill

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

I was just here a couple weeks ago for the other cache in the park. Decided to come back and finish up. Thanks for the cache.

Magic Squares of Singly Even Orders

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

My third of three Magic Squares today. Thanks for the puzzles.

Magic Squares of Doubly Even Orders

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

I started on this some time ago, got the square messed up and gave up. This one was the hardest for me to solve. The pattern is easy once I saw it.

Magic Squares of Odd Orders

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

Since the Magic Squares puzzles were all so close to home, I decided to get going and solve them. Thanks for the puzzle.

Apr 6, 2004

Commodore Fun

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

Gee, it has been a while since someone logged this. I thought a little cache location hint would have been nice. Thanks for some lunchtime diversion.

Apr 4, 2004

The Other End - Wrights Station

By: Thefogheads Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

This made a nice end to our "Mountain History" trek. Thanks Fogheads.

Mountain History

By: Kealia Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

Spent a nice morning following the steps of the multicache with DougMoi. The history lessons were great and the sights were even better. The cache was chock full of good stuff, and we especially enjoyed reading the info sheets.

Apr 3, 2004

Montalvo Water Company

By: 2marbleheads Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

Saw the Fogheads a couple times this morning and had a nice chat with them. They beat me to this one. This was my last of six this morning in Montalvo.

Pay Attention

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

I paid attention and found it fairly quickly. Thanks for the cache.

The Luuuuv Cache

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

There are a couple of interesting structures currently on display on the lawn nearby -- a sort of wicker house and a sort of sod house. Thanks for the cache.

Montalvo Crossing

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

I sure someone will get spotted sooner or later doing this one because of the number of people through here. TNLNSL.

Montalvo Lookout

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

I used to take my sons up here years ago. Last weekend I saw that there were no geocaches at Montalvo, so I got an ammo box, stocked it up and was going to put it near Lookout Point this morning, but then wham! last night I saw there were six new caches at Montalvo. I personally would not have made this one such a nasty job to retrieve... but thanks for the cache.

Wildcat Creek Shell Cache

By: 2marbleheads Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

Made a quick grab after the trail traffic cleared. TNTLSL.

Clip Joint

By: The Rat Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

Another Rat puzzle bites the dust. This was the hardest one for me so far. The main problem was getting started. Once I had a foothold, it went fairly quickly. The cache was an easy find. Thanks a bunch.

Apr 1, 2004

Hail Caesar

By: The Rat Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

Another Rat puzzle crossed off my list. My GPSr had a little trouble here, but other than that it was an easy find. Thanks for the puzzle and cache.
