Indistinct Road to Somewhere

By: runnerinwoods Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Micro

I left my bike at the top of the hill, and hiked on down here. I had a look around before reading about the cache, and actually had my hand on the cache camo. After I read about what I was looking for, I made another pass around the area, and finally came up with it. Thanks!

Secret Ottlet Communications

By: Team Ottlet Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

I'm tend to be a bike pusher (uphill) as well as a bike rider (downhill, wheeee!), and it was a long uphill push from the creek. I spotted an unofficial communication stenciled on a leg of the tower, and thought the cache might be nearby, but that proved not to be the case. I pulled out the PDA, did a little reading, and wandered over and spotted the cache. Thanks!

Looking Down From a Dark Place

By: runnerinwoods Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

I was looking up in the trees for something that appeared to be looking down at me. That was the wrong idea since down is a relative sort of thing. I finally wandered around a bit and spotted the creative hide. Thanks!

Ermine's Mushroom Cache

By: Team Ottlet Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

I had a look for the cache before reading the description and totally missed it. This was going to be my turn-around point for this morning, but I still had plenty of morning left. I had a couple of unfound caches on top of Black Mountain, so I re-planned my route and made a loop, to Black Mountain, down Indian Creek Trail to Canyon Trail, and back to Page Mill Rd. I took the Hula Bum traveling geocoin and left Bytemobile turtle #407. Thanks!

Not a Page Mill Road Cache

By: Team Ottlet Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

I parked along Page Mill about 8:15 am, got on my bike, and headed for the Adobe Creek Trail. Things were totally fogged in this morning at home, but the sun was shining bright up here. This was the first cache of the morning. Thanks!

My Side of the Mountain

By: alpharomero.com Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

This cache wasn't in the route I originally planned for this morning, but it turned out that I had plenty of time, and I was on my bike, so I pedaled and pushed on over here. I looked for the cache before reading about it, then read the hint and it took a few more minutes of searching to find it. The camo worked well. Thanks!

Adobe Creek Trail View

By: budd-rdc Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

This was also my first time on this trail. I have been planning to come out here for a couple years now, and the new TeamOttlet caches got me to overcome my inertia. I had a look around for the cache before reading the description or hint, but there were just too many good hiding places here. I got a little surprise when I put back the cache and a mouse ran over the back of my hand. I left Bytemobile turtle #406. Thanks!

Otter ?s Mischief Cache

By: Team Ottlet Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

There was plenty of water flowing in the creek this morning. I parked my bike quite close to the cache site, but didn't read the description or hint right away. I followed my GPSr around for a few minutes, and it had lots of opinions on where the cache might be -- anywhere from 50 to 300 feet from the trail. I finally pulled out the PDA, read about the cache and spotted it quickly. Thanks!

Meet & Greet Groundspeak & Garmin in the Bay Area

By: Signal the Frog Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

I got to use a Colorado for a while, which was my mission for the day. I didn't pull out the credit card, though.
