I came over for a "Touch the Twilight" expedition, and was a little early, so I headed up the street for this one. It was dark and rainy, but I had no trouble with this. Thanks!
By: GeoWomyn_SF_CA Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 4.0 Container: Regular
This was my first night cache, and the rain made it more of an adventure. The light rain quit during our quest, and by the time I finished the second tour with shadow101, at 10 pm, we had quite a nice view of the lights below. The muddy, steep slopes were quite treacherous, and hiking boots made a big difference. The first time around, I didn't see where the micro was hidden for the next to the last stage, so shadow101 and I had to search for a bit. I don't think there is a firetack in the area anymore. I took an I Found It card at the final. Thanks for the adventure!

I came over to Shoreline for my lunchtime walk today. The sky was a bit dark, but the ducks didn't seem to mind. Thanks!
By: gumbyandeddy Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small
I stopped by here after a lunchtime walk at Shoreline. The parking lot was full of crazed animals headed for a feeding frenzy. It took me a couple minutes to zero in on the cache. Thanks!

12:00 - STF. The skies were a bit threatening, but the weather was not bad. This was my first hike along this section of trail. Thanks!
By: CKayaks Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro
I came by before 7 am this morning, and the parking lot was pretty well deserted. For Coin Quest, I am going to use this for the resupply requirement. This place has laminators, PDAs, batteries, etc., plus it's across the street from a home improvement store.
By: Jdieas347 and Angel827 Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro
I came by before 7 am this morning. I am planning to use this for my Thirst Quencher cache for Coin Quest. This is one of my favorite beverages. I didn't realize this tasting room was here. I'll have to come back during its open hours.
By: MotorBug Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular
I was alone out here with the ducks and geese this afternoon. There was a pretty good wind and a few raindrops coming down. I will use this find for Coin Quest. Thanks!

I plan to be there with Mrs. B.
By: PisoMojado Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen
I was surprised that there were folks sitting in their cars out here in the wind and light rain this afternoon. I wasn't looking forward to another close examination of this structure, but I stuck with it until I spotted something. I will log this one for Coin Quest.
By: MotorBug Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro
I came out to find Phoenix B-rise for Coin Quest, and stopped for a couple more. Thanks!
By: Mystery Ink Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Not chosen
I spent a while looking, then gave up and headed to the next cache. On my way back, I spent another 30 seconds looking, and was able to spot it with both feet on the trail, but you need good eyesight and good lighting. There are three spots left on the log. The area is showing a little wear and tear from the cachers stepping off the trail to search for this.
By: workerofwood Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular
I came out here this morning to find some of the new caches that have been popping up and fulfull a Coin Quest requirement or two. Great idea! This area certainly provides the perfect camo.
By: frivlas Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small
This area was quite busy as I walked up. One family was enjoying the water flowing here, and a couple walked by and asked if I had found the geocache here yet. Well I just started to look, and was able to say that I found it before they got out of earshot. I hiked back to Pichetti Ranch with the family and told them all about geocaching. I left a coin here to satisfy a Coin Quest requirement -- a 50 colones coin from Costa Rica.
By: MotorBug Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small
The caches keep popping up around here. I came up to clear out the new ones and complete a Coin Quest requirement or two. I didn't zero out real close here, but had no problem spotting the cache.
By: bullit Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
This cache worked out great for Coin Quest. I was headed up here for a hike anyway. I wandered a little, but finally spotted the material mentioned in the hint. Thanks!
By: MotorBug Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular
My GPSr was a little uncertain about the cache location, but the hint led me through a minimal PO path to the cache. Thanks!
By: Snuva & Chepup Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular
I came out here for Coin Quest #2, and this cache qualifies for me under about three different categories. I first headed to "Kaesky Point", 200+ feet from the cache, then stubbornly headed in a clockwise direction, bushwacking here and there to make sure I wasn't missing a shortcut. When I finally got to the cache site, I searched high and low. I was about to give up when I did one final search around the periphery of the area, and found the cache in the grass. The cache container was full of water from the recent rains, and every thing was wet except the log, which was sealed nicely in its baggie. I dried out things as best I could, and took the story books home to see if they are salvagable. I hid the cache in a new spot again -- this time it is on the ground.
By: 47russ47 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro
This was a piece of luck. This cache is close to home, but I had avoided it because it was in front of someone's house. It just happens to satisfy one of the Coin Quest #2 requirements, so I headed out in the early morning darkness and rain to find it. It turned out to be an easy one to find in the dark, without much prowling.
By: Pedalman Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen
I had seen the cache name several times, and I always wondered what a Cactus Tank was. Now I know. The cache coordinates have a special property that make this find useful for Coin Quest #2.
By: STP Ron Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
I biked on up here and managed to spot the cache just before I was going to pull out the PDA and read about it. If you look around, you can spot cows from lots of caches down here. I'll use this cache for Coin Quest #2. I left Bytemobile turtle #240.
By: STP Ron Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small
The traffic was not so heavy on the trail today. There were a few sprinkles as I was coming by here. No problem spotting the cache. Thanks!
By: sloigo adopted by Seek2FindMe 6/8/2010 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular
I was biking nearby and decided to stop for this one in case I wanted to use it for Coin Quest #2. Thanks!
By: STP Ron Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro
This was a quick stop along the trail. I was biking a short section of the trail to pick up a Coin Quest #2 requirement or two.
By: STP Ron Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
I found this for Coin Quest #2. I wasn't really heading for this cache, but I took the long way around for "Devils' Release", and happened upon this. I zeroed out in the middle of the trail, and picked the wrong side to search first, but found it without too much grief.
By: bykenut Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small
I helped obedience train a couple of our dogs. Our sheltie had a CD (Companion Dog) degree and two legs toward her CDX when we finally gave up on her. My record is not that great on this type of hide, but I had the right angle and spotted this one right off. Thanks!
By: airshadowshow Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular
I found this for Coin Quest #2. I dropped off the Homer Claus travel bug and took Radar Randy.
By: sammydee Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular
I parked nearby and hopped on my bike to grab a couple caches for Coin Quest #2. I stopped for this interesting little spot and dropped the Radar Randy travel bug.
By: STP Ron Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro
This wasn't my primary objective this morning, but I came right by it, so I stopped and found it. Thanks!
By: STP Ron Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small
I rolled up on my bike and figured there were several places to hide a cache. I took a peek at the hint, and spotted the cache right off. This is for Coin Quest #2.
By: STP Ron Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small
I was rolling down the Coyote Creek Trail on my bike, and this was a short distance off trail, so I went for it. I was about to pull out my PDA to read about the cache when I spotted it. Thanks!
By: boulter Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro
I came up to finish the El Sereno caches today, and parked at the top of Montevina Rd. I didn't see much of a parking spot here, but I guess one vehicle could park such that it's not blocking the driveway or the gate. The cache had collected some water, but the log was fine in its baggie. I re-oriented the cache to avoid collecting more water.
By: bullit Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro
The hint and the hide made this a quick grab along the way. Thanks!
By: bullit Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro
The wind was whistling and the clouds were a little ominous, but other than that, it was a nice day for a hike up here. I had done the caches on the other side of El Sereno, so this was just a little clean-up work. I needed the hint for this one, but after reading it, the cache became obvious.
By: MotorBug Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro
I had a couple free hours today, and decided to finish the current El Sereno caches. I parked at the top of Montevina Rd and had a short hike to the caches I hadn't found. I didn't find this cache on the first pass because it was buried in leaves, but I turned it up on the second pass.
By: MotorBug Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
I got brother-in-law Wirebndr (retired orthodontist) to come with me this morning for a hike at El Corta Madera. This was our first stop. I had been here once before when the cache was gone, so I started searching while Wirebndr worked the GPSr. I came up with it fairly quickly and we headed down Skyline to the CM03 trailhead.
By: Chronic Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Regular
Went we got to the area of the cache, I checked my watch and told Wirebndr that we would only spend 10 minutes on this one. I was getting close to noon and we had a long climb out of here. Wirebndr made the find and kept our record perfect for the day. I had walked within a few steps of the cache, but my attention was directed in the wrong direction. No, Motorbug, I didn't drop any new caches back here. I left turtle #236. We got back on the trail just ahead of a big Weekly Walker group, let by Tom Davids.
By: ed777 Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Not chosen
This was the turn-around point for Wirebndr and I we were headed to the CM03 trailhead, and we decided that the way we came would be the quickest way out. I left turtle #238.
By: ed777 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular
About a tenth of a mile before the cache site, I thought we were on the wrong trail or had passed the cache, but I inspected the GPSr track, and finally decided that we were right on track. We found the cache quickly and left turtle #234.
By: geekster & ghoff3 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Regular
Wirebndr and I were passed going up the big hill by a Weekly Walker group, and we got to the Old Growth Redwood along with the stragglers of the group. Tom Davids, the leader of the hike came over to the tree with the stragglers and caught us red-handed with the cache. We explained what we were up to and he congratulated us on our find.
By: geekster Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular
9:56 am - Wirebndr and I had a hard time of it here and did a lot of wandering. I wandered through the area of the cache site a couple times, but failed to find the cache. Finally on the third visit, I walked all the way around and spotted the cache. I left signature turtle #233.
By: mjp303 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular
Wirebndr and I came from the right direction, but didn't have good access to the cache, so we went back and came in from a slightly different direction, saw the sign, and found the cache. Saw Bytemobile turtle #151 here, so I didn't leave another one, and took a Ckayaks smashed something.
By: geekster Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small
10:01 am - Wirebndr was getting a little uneasy as the trail kept heading down in elevation, knowing that we would have a long climb back. We found this one quickly with the hint, and started on downward.
By: ed777 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Micro
After reading the hint, I spotted this one, then let Wirebnder have a look for it. We signed and headed onward and downward.
By: geekster Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Regular
Both Wirebndr and I thought this was one of the most interesting caches we had seen. We took everything out and examined it. We were unable to identify the function of some of the pieces, and wished for some labels. This was sort of a puzzle cache in trying to fit everything back in. I took the travel bug and left turtle #235.
By: Shores Scout, geekster & Eagle81 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small
The hide and hint worked great for us and we spotted the cache right away. Wirebndr and I headed back toward the trailhead from here and ran into the Boulters and Motorbug, who had been trailing us all morning. They inspected me for a backpack in case I had been hauling ammo boxes back here. I think the greater danger is Motorbug, though. We'll see what pops up over the next week.
By: TeamAlamo Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
This seemed like a great cache for St. Patrick's Day. We came over for a weekend of camping at Half Moon Bay. My wife and her sister headed out for Twice As Nice and I hopped on my bike for this cache. By the way, my wife's sister and brother both have birthdays today (they're not twins). I had some problems finding the cache, then read the hint and got on the right track.
By: geekster Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
I came out for a short lunchtime break today, and the weather was not half bad. Thanks!
By: Rocket Girl and DuckeyLee Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small
I have stopped by a couple times before looking for this one. My only excuse is that the hint didn't work out for me because of my long stride, or maybe the cache has migrated.
By: fulmar2 Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro
Over the weekend I solved my problems with reading and following directions, and came up with a solution that worked. I headed out at lunchtime to find the cache, and when I saw it I finally understood Fizzy's log. I'm certainly not as good as Fizzy, but after a while I got a feel for the matter and was able to sign. Thanks!
By: Mary & Dave Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular
I decided to take the opportunity to go caching in the snow this morning. Snow and ice and water was coming down from the trees as I hiked along the trail to the cache. I left signature turtle #226.
By: zapboy Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small
I came up late this afternoon for the new Sage View cache, and stopped by here on the way out. I left turtle #231.
By: ed777 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular
I appreciated the info in the "Up the Down Escalator", and changed my route to this cache. The snow / frozen rain was coming down pretty good and probably affected my GPSr. After wandering around a bit, I read the hint and headed straight for the cache. I left turtle #228.
By: CKayaks Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small
There was a little accumulation of snow here from last night, and more was falling as I came up to the back porch. I had a look under one end of the porch, then read the hint and found the cache fairly quickly.
By: MotorBug Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular
3:55 pm -- FTF. One nice thing about going for FTF on a Motorbug cache is that you're not competing against him. I had a day off today and went on a caching expedition to the snow country (Skyline Blvd) this morning, and was working my way through the honey-do list this afternoon when this cache popped up. I decided that since I could pick up three other caches, it was definitely worth the trip. I left turtle #230.
By: Tripp888 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small
I was sort of surprised when I found this one because I thought I must be on the wrong trail. My GPSr was reading 270 ft. I think my GPSr was a bit off today because of the snow falling and all the moisture on the trees. I probably would never have found this without the obvious landmark and generous hints. I left signature turtle #229.
By: ed777 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular
My GPSr was way off on my first pass, so I read the hint and that didn't get me any closer. The water and snow in the trees, and the little pellets of frozen rain coming down probably didn't help the GPS accuracy. After a while it changed its mind, and I got close enough to guess a likely hiding spot. I left signature turtle #227.
By: ed777 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
I came up for a little snow caching this morning. The log was a bit damp, but I managed to sign OK. A slightly bigger cache with a baggie for the log would probably work here.
By: budd-rdc Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro
I gave this a shot without reading the hint. I didn't want to go poking around everywhere, though, since there was some accumulated snow here from last night, and some more falling. I knew the coordinates would be good so I guessed a likely spot, and stepped off the trail and grabbed the cache.
By: zapboy Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small
I liked this one because is a clever hide and it didn't cause me too much grief. In fact, I found it by the coordinates alone. I took a quick look around, and was about to pull out my PDA to start reading when I spotted something suspicious. Thanks!
By: CKayaks Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Micro
I guess the snow coming down was better than rain. I gave this a shot without reading the description, then read the description, but not the hint, and was able to spot the cache fairly quickly. There was some great swag in the cache, but I decided to leave it for future cachers.
By: MotorBug Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular
I came up for Sage View late this afternoon, and picked this up on my way out. I left turtle #232.
By: GeoBrowns (adopted by Gitonyerhorse) Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
Finally found this one after getting some help from the owner. I came very close on my last visit, and checked out some similar hiding places, but missed this one. The log was much easier to deal with than some others of this type.
By: popeye2 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
I stopped by at lunchtime and quickly located the cache. Pretty easy terrain for a popeye2 cache. I stopped by the old location a couple weeks ago and had no luck.
By: bullit Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
I didn't have my PDA -- all I had was the coordinates, which made this a little more interesting. I was initially thinking bison tube, but stumbled upon the cache after a short search.
By: pao_flyer Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular
The second stage was the toughest for me. You aren't going to spot it with a quick glance in that direction, and the previous hider did a fine job.
By: mharrigan Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro
Just a few drops of rain were starting to fall as I headed for the cache this afternoon. The playground was empty, so it was an easy find. Thanks!
By: The Petoskey Stones Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small
Topnotch craftsmanship on this. It was in great working order. Thanks!
By: big checker Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
I worked this one into a sequence of errands I was running this afternoon. Found it without too much pain. Thanks!
By: pao_flyers Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
Solid workmanship, and a fine hide. I consider myself lucky to have spotted this one without too much effort.
By: GeoBrowns Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro
I had plenty of uninterrupted search time this afternoon and couldn't spot it. I wouldn't take that as any indication as to whether it is still there, though.
By: bullit Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen
I tried to find this one without the hint and missed it, but then read the cache description and hint and made a quick grab. I found a little space to add my signature on the log. I would have brought a new log if I had read the cache page ahead of time.
By: AF911 and fried-neurons Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
I did a little hike along the river today, and decided to give this one a try. My experience was different than Motorbug's I read his log and the hint, so I had a pretty good idea of where to look. The color of the cache fastener helped too, and I found it after a short search. Thanks!
By: bullit Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen
I had an errand this afternoon that took me near downtown, so I added a little hike along the Guadalupe. The log is a bit worn and getting full.
By: bullit Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro
I managed to find this one from just the coordinates. There was a little turtle in the cache, so I left one of my signature turtles to keep him company.
By: AF911 and Fried-Neurons Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small
I was doing a little hike along the river this afternoon, and popped out to grab this one. I tried to find it with just the coordinates, but had to read the description and hint to make the grab. Thanks!
By: bullit Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen
I thought this was a nice puzzle. The solution didn't pop out for me until I had worked with the numbers for a while. I took advantage of the nice weather at lunchtime and made a quick run for this one. Thanks!
