Flying Fish

By: oldbadger Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

The hint was quite helpful for me, but not until I started searching on the right side of the trail. I initially zeroed out on the trail, and I immediately picked the wrong side and spent most of my searching time there, while the GPSr continued to wander. Thanks!

'Cause I eats me spinitch

By: Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Small

I was on my way to TC-Butano today, and stopped here for the view and cache. Yes, I frequently eat spinach -- raw, in my salad. Thanks!

Rest Your Buns

By: ed777 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

I took a counter-clockwise hike around the park today, and this was my first cache. I was grateful for the hint, since I was wandering around, following my GPSr arrow here and there.


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

Yes, the hike is straightforward, but it pretty much kicked my butt today. I am happy to be home and taking it easy. The cache was hidden in quite a nice little spot. I left a CKayaks TFTC geocoin that I picked up last weekend from TC-Calero. Thanks!

Mike Ferguson to the Rescue! Butano Edition

By: Trail Reader Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

Well, I'm glad Mike Ferguson has been found. He probably never realized that he was lost. I took a counter-clockwise hike around the park today, and this was getting toward the home stretch. Thanks!

The 200 Special

By: eagleneb22 (with help from my2002cali) Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I was out on an errand, and decided to find a couple caches along the way. No problems spotting this one from the right viewpoint. Thanks!

At the End of the Rainbow

By: eagleneb22 (with my2002cali and GeekOfAllTrad Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I made about three trips around before adjusting my viewpoint and spotting the cache. The cache was back in its well stuck mode, so it took a little work to get it out. Thanks!

All American

By: eagleneb22 (with my2002cali and GeekOfAllTrad Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

I really stepped in it this time. I normally am not so lucky with this type of hide, but I spotted it in the second or third place I looked. I signed the log, jumped back into my vehicle, then it hit me. The smell. It must have been fresh, or I reactivated it by my stepping in it. I got rid of all of it that I could at the next stop, but it was hard to concentrate on anything else, so I was soon headed home for some serious cleaning.

Golden Eagle Hangout

By: Geokashers Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Micro

I got an early start this morning, and it was still quite overcast & cool at this point. I hadn't gotten out my PDA yet to read cache descriptions and hints, and I maintained that here. Thanks!

Shoot, No Cows!

By: CKayaks Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Micro

This was the first cache of the day that I needed to pull out the PDA for a hint. The cache was concealed nicely by a well-placed board. Thanks!

Pena's Panoramic View

By: Marky & Joani Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

I DNFed this in 2005. No problems spotting this one from a distance. The hiking was nice & cool this morning in Calero. Thanks!


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

It has been a while since I did a TC cache, but I will try to get around to all of them eventually. I didn't prepare ahead of time. I just loaded Calero waypoints into my GPSr and headed out early this morning. As I hiked about 500 feet away from the cache, I was starting to wonder how I would get there, but it all worked out in the end. I took the CKayak's TFTC traveling geocoin and left Bytemobile turtle #440. Thanks!

Javelina Corral

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

It was pleasant weather for hiking in Calero this morning - heavy overcast, then partly cloudy. My GPSr took me to the right spot, and the hide was easy enough to figure out without bringing out my PDA. Thanks!

Virus Bravo Six

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

I headed over here from TC-Calero. The weather was nice for hiking Calero - cool and overcast. No problems spotting the hide. Thanks!

Darn No River Here

By: Mystery Ink Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

This was my second stop this morning. This is the perfect time of year to hike Calero. The overcast was still heavy as I came by here. Thanks!

The Heart Of Calero

By: Geokashers Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Small

I managed to find this one from the waypoint alone. I thought the placement was nice - no trees or bushed to contend with. Thanks!

Javelina Saddle - Lake View

By: CKayaks Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Regular

This is a nice time of year for hiking Calero. The overcast kept me cool all morning. I dropped the Ol' Woody travel bug here. Thanks!

Huff & Puff

By: Karen1327 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

I was the first vehicle in the parking area this morning, and huffed and puffed up here somewhat after 8 am. The weather was still heavy overcast, but there was a promise of sun later. Thanks!

picnic at the pond

By: cooperphoto Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

The cache and note were well tucked away, so I ended up sticking my head in the hole with flashlight before I finally came up with it. Had a nice after-the-rain hike this morning. Thanks!

Room with a View

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

I decided to do a couple little hikes close to home this morning. The creek crossings required some attentiveness since the rocks were wet and the water was flowing well. I think the wet trees contributed to the poor performance of my GPSr, but it got me to the general area, and I spotted the hide without too much trouble. I took the hot rod travel bug and left Bytemobile turtle #437.

Somewhat High Hidey Hole

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

I wasn't really planing this hike this morning, but the road to YSI/Youth Hostel was closed with a ranger's truck and a fire truck in the way, so I headed on up Sanborn Road. My GPSr was more flakey than usual. I think the wet trees reduced the reception. It took quite a while to make up its mind, but it finally got me to the right area, and I spotted the cache without too much trouble. Thanks!

Don't eat dead fish

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

I poked around a little in the piles of wet leaves, but couldn't come up with anywhere else to hunt.

Trolls of Tollgate

By: FenninRo and Dixydust Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

Things were a bit damp this morning, and the creek was running well, but I didn't have too much trouble with this one. Nice spot!
