Agnew Historic Cemetery

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

Yes, I would like to have a closer look at the cemetery. Thanks for the lunchtime amusement.

The Longest Walkway

By: bullit Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

I tried this one for some lunchtime amusement. It took me a while, and I provided some entertainment for some folks moving in. One asked me if I was using my electronic gadget to measure something on the oranges across the field. Thanks!

Outdoor Warning

By: bullit Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Well, I haven't seen anything quite like this before. Nice hide!

Mar 30, 2005

Halt!

By: stbk Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I stopped by one other lunchtime, and the high volume of muggles and employees on break hindered my search. Today, I picked a likely spot and went for it. Thanks!

Just Another Hide

By: Rocket Girl and DuckeyLee Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I tooke a lunchtime break and worked this into my route. Thanks!

BADGES #1

By: BADGES Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I've been by here a couple times before and nothing clicked. Today I came with new eyes and it was the first thing I saw. I don't think I've ever seen one exactly like this. Thanks!

Mar 25, 2005

Stan Troedson Field

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

No games in progress this morning. Just the grounds keepers. Thanks!

Dam Cachers

By: The Petoskey Stones Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I found the cache around 2 pm or so, and didn't take the geocoin. The cache was relatively easy to see once I found it, but it took me at least 10 minutes to find it.

Along the De Anza Trail 9 - Los Altos Hills

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

As I was signing the cache, a dog flushed out a big jack rabbit, and chased him across the road, right between two cars. Fortunately, I think everyone was OK, even the rabbit.

Along the De Anza Trail 8 - Los Altos

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

I made an early stop here this morning. Busy intersection!

Benny Bear

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I sure didn't spot any sign near the sculpture with the artist's name. No problems finding the cache. Thanks!

SWAT coated ham

By: Team Shadow Cat Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

No one seems to have mentioned that the coordinates are swapped between this one and Mao's Thawed Cat. This cache (description, hints) go with the more southerly coodinates. Thanks!

Mao's thawed cat

By: Team Shadow Cat Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

No one seems to have mentioned that the coordinates are swapped between this one and SWAT coated ham. This cache (description, hints) go with the more northerly coodinates. Thanks!

Animal Trails

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

My GPSr also was pointing to the wrong side of the path, but found the cache quickly with the hint. Thanks!

Swimming Hole

By: Sharkz Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

The fishermen were clear around to this side today, and fisherman and kayakers out on the water. Found the cache without much problem. Thanks!

Rocky Road

By: Sharkz Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

The fishermen were out in force today. There was hardly a place to park along the road. Doesn't anybody work on Friday anymore? Nice cammo!

Olympic Wannabes

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

This was my first stop this morning. Great sculpture!

Let's go LEGO #1

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

I stopped by here so I would have the coordinates of Lego #2 to plan my next trek through Rancho San Antonio. It took me forever to solve the puzzle. My feet started growing roots. Thanks!

Mar 24, 2005

Comic Relief aka The Big Cheese

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

I stopped by at lunchtime today, made a quick grab and didn't have much trouble with muggles. Thanks!

Geobeads #6 - Pick Up Stix

By: zapboy with help from workerofwood Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I had some trouble with this one, looking for it between rain showers earlier this week. I went out at lunchtime today, the sun was out, and the hunt was more fruitful. Thanks for the series!

Mar 21, 2005

Hetch Hetchy Trail - Hippity Hoppity

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

12:45 pm I came out for a lunchtime stroll. I didn't know there was a new trail here. Thanks!

Hetch Hetchy Trail - Purple Wisteria

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

12:55 pm I got a little help on this one by spotting stbk and friend a hundred yards or so up the trail putting the cache back. I enjoyed meeting the evil genius behind some of the caches I found last weekend.

Too Weird, Man

By: Carl LaFong Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

I wanted to add the webcam icon to my collection, so I got Mrs. Bytemobile to man the controls while I came out for a lunchtime shopping trip. Thanks!

Mar 19, 2005

Rancho San Antonio Secret View

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

I came down from the Windmill site, and had no problems. This was my first hike through this area. Thanks!

Bored Of Caching?

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

I decided to forgo a hike this morning because of the rain, so I did a little driving around. This was the first stop. Nice job on this one!

Saratoga Creek Overlook #1

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

The creek was really flowing today. Found it this morning in a light rain. Thanks!

Picnic on the Corner

By: stbk Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Too much water on the tables and benches to sit down this morning, but signed standing up. Thanks!

SC-17 - Gulliver plays here - LC * 2

By: nostrada (adopted by shadow101) Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Stopped by on a rainy day caching run. Thanks!

SC-16 - Mission Corral Site - LC

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

This was my first visit here. The rain gave me a little break while I found the cache. Thanks!

Duveneck Windmill Site

By: atc Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

It looked like the rain might be done for the afternoon, so I set out on a loop through Rancho. This was my first stop, and collected only a few stray raindrops on the way. Took WOWs wand of revelation.

Cache into Caches

By: garyhenry and The Petoskey Stones Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

Found parking nearby for this and the Red Bridge. Thanks!

The Village Cart

By: stbk Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I have acquired a dislike of searching large rusty metal objects for magnetic micros, particularly with little or nothing in the way of a hint. I gave up and sat in my car reading past logs, then came out and got it after one last try. Thanks for the cache!

Nig on park 2

By: kg6mov Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

My route this morning took me pretty close to this one, so I could resist stopping to have a look. Thanks!

Kenny's Tootsies Are Dry!

By: CKayaks Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

My tootsies were dry too, which is amazing since I have been wearing the same shoes and socks this whole rainy day. I met Zap Boy and friends along the trail on the way home from this cache.

AHA Tom Cat Weds

By: Team Shadow Cat Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I wished I had read the full cache description before looking. I was in the walkway, and couldn't find anything. I finally went out and found the cache. Thanks!

A Tom Cat Washed

By: Team Shadow Cat Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

I was pretty well washed this morning by the rain. I found this one without the hint. Thanks!

A Red Bridge Near A Blue Pheasant

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

This is the type of cache that I normally look for ten minutes, then give up and cross it off my list. I thought the cammo was more than necessary and the hint not too helpful, but I accidentally found it anyway. Thanks for the hunt!

Lou's diamond in the rough

By: Team Shadow Cat Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

Not much happening on the field this rainy Saturday morning. Thanks for the cache!

Somewhere Along the Northwest Passage

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

Stopped by in the rain this morning, and found it without too much grief. Thanks!

Above a Challenge

By: darrenk13 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

This might be more aptly named Below a View now, and that's the way I came. The rain mostly held off this afternoon while I completed my hike though Rancho. Thanks!

SC-6 - Mary Gomez, once again

By: nostrada (adopted by Bughound) Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I made a Santa Clara tour in the rain this morning, and stopped by here for a quick grab. Thanks!

Terrain Challenge 2

By: popeye2 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Micro

I wasn't really in the mood for hunting a micro, but I rested a bit, had a sip of water, then followed the cacher trail to make the find. Thanks!

Valley's End

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

Alert is my middle name, but I guess the rattlesnakes were holed up today and the ticks and mountain lions didn't catch me. Thanks for the cache.

Mar 18, 2005

Tanks for the Memories

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

I planned my route home tonight to grab a couple caches, and this was one. Thanks!

ANNP

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

My GPSr wasn't very close, but my first guess about the cache location proved correct. Thanks!

Get Smart

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

This is quite a busy operation, even at noon on a weekday. Thanks for the fun!

Mar 16, 2005

Gotta Love It

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

I think geocaching must have something to do with the "novelty gene". Geocaching is a way to have something non-routine happen every day. For my wife, rearranging the furniture and shopping seem to satisfy the craving. Thanks for a non-routine lunch hour.

Kosher bacon soldier

By: Team Shadow Cat Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

Grabbed the bacon on my lunch break today. Thanks!

Zeno's Paradox

By: Chris & Janet Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

The printout for this cache has been kicking around in my car so long it has started to fade. I have stopped by here two or three times before, once after the cache was relocated. Today I was in the area and decided to have another look. I did a systematic search and was eventually rewarded. I was surprised to find the log completely dry, which is not usually the case for this type of container. Thanks!

Mar 15, 2005

Sunnyvale Skate Park 2

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

I came out at lunchtime today, and the skatepark was quite busy. Found it quickly, but the log is definitely full.

Mar 14, 2005

GeoBeads #5 ? Teal Tressel

By: zapboy with help from workerofwood Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

This is a very nice series for me because they are close to work and at least sometimes involve a short hike along a paved path. I picked this one up at lunchtime without turning on the GPSr. I just had a look with Terraserver Viewer before leaving. Thanks!

Mar 13, 2005

What happened to the road?

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

I feel a little funny logging this one since I replaced it, but what the heck, I have been here a couple times, and Marky confirmed that I had the right spot.

Mar 12, 2005

Buggy Trail

By: Kealia Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

We were camped at Seacliff, and I got brother-in-law Wirebndr to head out for a few caches this afternoon. Good thing Wirebndr was along because he found the cache right after I looked at its hiding place and didn't see anything. Thanks!

Soquel Sepulturas

By: capnjack46 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I stopped by with Wirebndr, and we knew exactly where to look from the hint. It took us a while because I was looking for a much trickier hide, and Wirebndr finally came up with it. Thanks!

The Monarch Cache

By: MonarchSchool Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

This is a nice big cache container, so I decided to leave the California Raisin travel bug. I picked this guy up along Highway 1, north of San Francisco, and he wants to continue traveling south along the coast. Thanks for the cache!

Thurber Hike

By: SC HUNTERS Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

This was a nice little hike and cache. I went with Wirebndr, and we both wondered about the house? barn? huge storage shed? that is visible from the cache site. It seems to be fairly new, but doesn't seem to have windows that we could see, and doesn't have a driveway.

Bluegrass Bob TB cache

By: capnjack46 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I have been here before, but it is an interesting spot, and deserves a cache. No problem finding the cache. Thanks!

Jazz Fan TB cache, reborn!

By: capnjack46 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I overshot the cache location and ended up driving out to the marine lab visitor center, which I had never seen before, but eventually returned and found the cache without much trouble. Thanks!

Saxocache

By: capnjack46 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

There must a been a herd of a hundred surfers off Pleasure Point today. There wasn't much in the way of waves, so they were mostly just waiting. Thanks for the cache!

Fetch! #2

By: ynots4 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

I failed to find the first incarnation of this cache, but had better luck today. It still required a bit of searching, even with the hint. Thanks!

Secret Trailhead #12 - Natural Bridges

By: Marky & Joani & Woof! Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

I was by here once before with Mrs. Bytemobile and couldn't find the cache, but did see the butterflies. Today, I just stopped by for the cache, and found it right away with no problem. Thanks!

Mar 11, 2005

Fremont Older OSP's Front Door

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

I had a little time this morning, which I thought would be easier than a weekend for this one. Left the Purple Foot travel bug.

Not Rainbow Camo

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

The park was quiet this morning. I sat on the bench, let the GPSr settle down, read the logs, then went for the cache. Thanks!

The Ear Infection

By: Sgt Stitches Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

We were headed over to Santa Cruz for the weekend, so I looked for a puzzle or two I could solve, and this one fit the bill nicely. I didn't see the feature mentioned in the hint, but the cache was the first thing it touched anyway. Thanks!

Greyt Berry Creek Falls

By: Kaveh, Team Bench Leader Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

I was initially confused because I zeroed out along the trail well before I saw any falls, but I read the hints, found the falls, and eventually found the cache about 470 feet from the posted coordinates. The cache was not reachable from the trail, and I found it by climbing up where I knew it must be. I moved the cache about 18 inches so that it can be reached, and covered it up a bit. The coodinates I posted are with five satellites, and about 18 foot accuracy.

Waddell Creek Cache

By: Noelle and David Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I had been wanting to do this bike ride for a while, and finally put it together today. The trail had lots of muddy spots, but it was not a bad ride. The hint is by no means a spoiler. You have to be in exactly the right spot to see the cache. I had a look a both sides, and was double checking places I had already looked when I finally found it.

Ca ņada de la Salud

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

I was finishing a bike ride to Berry Falls about 5 pm, and decided to park the bike and hike for one last cache. The fog was rolling in, so the views were gone as I headed out. I found the little trail off the main trail that heads up to the cache, and found a spot where I wished the cache had been -- near a bench on the way up. I searched around the area where I zeroed out, pondered the hint, and searched some more, but no luck.

Mar 10, 2005

No U-turns!

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

I skipped "American Idol" last night to solve this one. Terraserver said that my solution was smack-dab on top of a building, but undaunted, I let my keen powers of observation and deduction [:D] lead me to the cache this morning. Thanks for the fun!

Mar 9, 2005

Hidden Sports Complex

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

This is a bit of a curiousity. Thanks for the cache!

E.L.P.

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

This was a great day to be out and about at lunchtime. Thanks!

POWER Lunch

By: The Petoskey Stones Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Just one couple having lunch here today, and I'm not sure if they were movers and shakers. Thanks for the lunchtime fun!

Mar 7, 2005

GeoBeads #4 ? The Jos Memorial

By: zapboy with help from workerofwood Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

There were hordes of joggers at lunchtime today, but didn't have any trouble collecting a bead and signing. Thanks!

Go Fly A Kite

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

Lots of folks were out and about at lunchtime today, but it didn't take long to spot the cache. Thanks!

GeoBeads #3 ? Down the Chute

By: zapboy with help from workerofwood Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

I picked up beads 3 and 4 at lunchtime today. It was a very nice day to be out and about. Thanks!

Ode To Gilligan

By: stbk Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

The trail was quite busy at lunchtime today, but I had read the logs, and knew right where to look. I signed quickly and was on my way. Thanks!

Discover Water @ L'Avenida

By: MadDad (maintained by bullit) Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

I read the logs and looked at Terraserver, so I pretty much did this one without a GPSr. Nice day to be out and about at lunchtime.

Mar 5, 2005

Penitencia "Dectructocache"

By: Team feline Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

I made an early morning stop on my way into Alum Rock park, found this cache, and got my shoes pretty wet from the grass.

Penitencia Covered Bridge View

By: GeoBrowns Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I was pretty sure I knew where this cache was going to be as I walked up, and touched it on my first grab. Thanks!

Rock Junction

By: geobrowns Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

This is a very nice multi and cache. I didn't know much about Alum Rock Park before today and I learned quite a bit of history today. The coordinates I came up with didn't put me right on the cache, but it was easy with the hint. Thanks!

Inspiration Point Hitching Post

By: GeoBrowns (adopted by BuckyD) Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

Unfortunately, I didn't have a horse to hitch here, and haul me back down. The views were not bad today, just a little hazy. Thanks!

Woodland Trail

By: GeoBrowns Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

After hiking up to Eagle Rock, I came over to this side and did a bit more hiking. This is my first visit to Alum Rock, and I am starting to become quite familiar with it. Thanks!

Railway Bridge

By: GeoBrowns Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I almost gave up on this one, then read the last log and remembered another Geobrowns cache that was extremely well crafted and well placed. The coordinates are right on. Thanks!

Horse Chestnut Trail

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

I had never been to Alum Rock park before, and this was my first stop in the park. Thanks!

Alum Rock Bay View

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

I triple checked my numbers before setting out for the second stage. I had planned to make this my last cache of the afternoon, but after being tricked into a longer hike, I made a big loop and got a couple more. Thanks for the workout!

Eagle Rock

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Regular

I was about an inch taller from mud on my shoes by the time I got here. The views were not bad, but a little hazy today. Thanks!

Alum Rock Overlook

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

This one was initially invisible to me. I searched the area around it, then widened my search, then went back to the bench, applied some tecnu, and had a sip of water. I read the last few logs, then went back, and it was the first thing I saw. Thanks for the fun!

Once a bridge

By: Team feline Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

I found the wrong place to rest, then walked around and found the right place. Thanks!

Spring Time

By: WalruZ Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I spied this one from across the creek, then headed back to the bridge. I don't think anyone would cross this creek today except at a bridge. Thanks!

Once Bitten, Twice Shy

By: CDNinCA Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

This was my last stop of the afternoon, after making a big loop hike up and down the hillside. The coordinates didn't get me very close, and I probably would have DNF'd without the hint. Thanks!

F.A.M.E. #1

By: DavidT21 & Fisherwoman Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

The trail was a bit muddy this morning, and got worse as I got closer to Eagle Rock. Not too much problem here. Thanks!

MISSION: Eastside Cache Dispersal

By: Team feline Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

First, I emptied my shirt pocket so I wouldn't dump it contents into the creek, then I made the reach and grab. I didn't take anything to disperse because it is a little too far from home for maintenance. Thanks!

Eagle Rock Trailhead

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

The coordinates are good, but the weeds are tall, and some of them have prickers. What Kablooey said is correct, but it still took me a long time to spot the cache, right about where I thought it would be. Thanks!

Wildlife Center

By: spider3 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Lots of folks out and about on this Saturday morning. Thanks!

Mar 4, 2005

Creekside Park

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

Made a quick dash from my car in the rain at lunchtime. Took a bead and the TPS sig item #147. Thanks!

GeoBeads #1 ? Around the Corner

By: zapboy with help from workerofwood Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

Not too many folks milling about in the rain, but the restaurant tables were packed. I grabbed a string and bead. There are three left. Thanks!

BADGES Power!

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

Seems fine to me. This is definitely a workerofwood classic. I didn't hunt for it in the rain at the BADGES event, but stopped by on my way home from work. Thanks!

Sunday Soccer

The rain stopped just long enough at lunchtime for a short hike down the trail. The cache wasn't the first place I looked, but found it with the hint. Thanks!

Rivermark Park

This area is incredibly busy at lunchtime. I could see where the cache was going to be from the hint, so I made a quick grab. Thanks!

Got Bugs?

By: bullit & mickeychopchop Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

I decided to check this one out at lunchtime. I got rid of most of my bugs a few days ago, so I just came by to see where it was and sign the log. I brought my mud shoes, and didn't have much problem, but the weeds are pretty high around here. Thanks!

Hawaiian Language Lesson #3

I guess this completes my lessons. I stopped by the very appropriate cache location at lunchtime, spotted it immediately, and was the first to sign the new log. Thanks!

Historical Mystery Tour is Going to Take You Away

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

I wheedled a hint at the BADGES event, did some googling, and finally figured out what this one was about. I stopped by on my way home last night, but couldn't see anything. Today I re-read the cache page, left work a little earlier for more daylight, put on my glasses, and saw the cache right away. Nice job on both the puzzle and cache!

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

This is close to work, so I decided to run over at lunchtime, while it was still there. Thanks!
