Muggle Junction

By: The North Star Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

People were still streaming by here when I came by just after 4 pm. No problems finding this since it was the second time around for me. Thanks!

Nano Maggie!

By: AlphaRomero.com Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

FTF at about 2 pm or so. I was surprised to see an empty log. I came out to see if my Virus Alpha Six cache needed a new log, and saw that there were some new caches to find. Thanks!

Wildcat Canyon

By: CKayaks (adopted by Leelelee) Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I think reception in this canyon would have be problematical for my old 60cs. No sweat with the Delorme PN-40, and the hint worked out quite nicely too. Thanks!

Somewhere in Rancho San Antonio Park

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

I looked for this once before, many months ago. Today I had my new lucky Delorme PN-40, and I made quick work of this cache. Thanks!

Deer Meadow Odd Couple

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

I headed to Rancho this afternoon just as a few raindrops started to fall. As I approached the area of this cache, the drops started to come faster and I thought I might have to cut short my hike, but the rain soon tapered off. I thought this was a nice puzzle because the secrets are slowly revealed as you approach, and the hints make for an easy find. Thanks!

The Oaks - Reborn

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

Hmm. This seemed familar somehow. I was in Rancho today trying out the park map I calibrated for my Delorme PN-40. No problems finding the trail to the cache. Thanks!

Approach from Above (just a little)

By: AlphaRomero.com (adopted by Leelelee) Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

I thought the coordinates were spot-on. I was using my new Delorme PN-40. I wandered around to the zero point, read the cache description, looked down near my feet, and located the cache. Again, I was surprised to see an empty log sheet. Thanks!

Different approaches

By: javawriter Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I looked for this cache once before, many months ago. Today I had my new Delorme PN-40, and it made the hunting much easier since it zeroed in on the cache site. With my old 60cs, I was wandering around, and picked the wrong man-made structure. Thanks!

Edgar Allan Poe: The Haunted Palace

By: Sierra Hikers Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I would say this cache is very different from the rest of the series in terms of difficulty. It is well off trail, and not hidden by anything that draws your attention. I spent spent quite a bit of time wandering the hillside, and was happy to come up with a find. Thanks!

Cache Challenge 1

By: Passport11 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

This was my first visit to Huddart park, and would say it is pretty high on my list of favorite places to hike. No problems spotting this one. Thanks!

PhotoBox

By: Sierra Hikers Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

I guessed right on the little side trail, and headed straight for the cache. I didn't have any photos to trade, but I looked at a few of the smiling faces. Thanks!

Edgar Allan Poe: The Masque of the Red Death

By: Sierra Hikers Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

No problems guessing where this one might be. Thanks!

Edgar Allan Poe: Imp of the Perverse

By: Sierra Hikers Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

This was my first visit to Huddart park, and really enjoyed the trails, at least when I started out in the late morning. The sunlight filtering down through the redwoods, and the terrain, dropping off from the trail were quite spectacular. I used the hint to spot this one quickly. Thanks!

Smokey Bear's 60th Birthday

By: Sierra Hikers Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

The trail was quite busy today, so I was happy that this one didn't take much searching. Thanks!

Edgar Allan Poe: The Raven (Bonus Cache)

By: Sierra Hikers Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

This was a nice bonus after finding the other caches in the series. It was my last cache of the day, and I trudged on back to the car from here. Thanks for a nice day in Huddart!

Cache Challenge 3

By: Passport11 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

When a cacher is beat after a lot of hiking, and is ready to turn back and head for the car, happiness is an excellent hint. Thanks!

Cache Challenge 2

By: Passport11 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I loaded up my Delorme PN-40 with a nice digitized map of Huddart from VirtualParks.org, and it was quite handy navigating the twisty trails today. I think I registered the map pretty well, but this cache was showing well off the trail, which it is not. No problems spotting this one. Thanks!

Edgar Allan Poe: The Telltale Heart

By: Sierra Hikers Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

This was the second cache of the series for me. It turns out that I could have picked a better order in which to find them. I forgot to note the letter and number for this one until I was about a quarter mile down the trail so I had to turn around. The letter and number were in a logical place, but I didn't notice the first time around. Thanks!

Deer Meadow

By: dr.dolittle & faith Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

No problem spotting this one after my GPSr led me to the right area. This is a nice spot that you would otherwise miss hiking by on the trail. Thanks!

'Wunderful' Manzanita

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

I overshot this one a ways with my new PN-40, but read the description & came back and spotted it fairly quickly. Thanks!

Top of Wunderlich

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

The first thing I found was a cache of a couple large water jugs, hidden cacher style with a bunch of sticks to draw attention to the area. The cache was nearby, well hidden, without anything to draw attention to it. Thanks!

The Crossroads

By: TimberToo Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

I probably wouldn't have found this one without the hint. The cache is tucked away in a spot that is easy to overlook. The cache is in great shape. This was the furthest I came down the hill from Skyline, and headed back up the other trail. Thanks!

Douglas's Elbow

By: TimberToo Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I overshot the elbow and looked around under some much less impressive elbows, then finally came back to the right spot. I left the geocoin in place. Thanks.

The Flame Station

By: Hellolost and Saz Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

My second cache of the new year and second find with my new PN-40. No problems. Thanks!

Magellan Be There GPS Adventure 21

By: ltleelim and mjleelim Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

I found a nice path to the cache, but my boots were starting to get damp from the wet grass. A good sized deer watched me approach the cache site, and surprisingly, he didn't give much ground. I took out my camera and took his picture, as well as four other deer that soon showed up. No problems spotting the cache. Thanks!

A Highly Repulsive cache

By: Changes in Latitudes Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Other

This was my first cache of the new year and the first cache found with my new PN-40. The hint for stage two had me looking in the wrong spots, but I found it after I took a moment and re-focused. Thanks!

Christmas Cache 2008

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

Well, Santa, I was awfully good last year, so I went ahead and bought myself a new PN-40 GPSr. I had a little trouble with this cache, then I looks at the map on the PN-40, and I had circled the cache location with my track. I headed for the center, and spotted the cache. Getting out and hiking for the first time in a while was present enough for me. Thanks!

Off the hairpin

By: Banana Slug Racing Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

I came out for a trial run with my new PN-40, and this was the fourth cache of the morning. Nice temperature for hiking today, although the trails were a little gooey here and there. Thanks!
