On the way to Lobitos Lookout

By: mjp303 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Regular

I was indeed on my way to Lobitos Lookout, and somewhat unhappy about heading downhill. This was my first time out this way, and I didn't encounter a whole lot of traffic on the trail, other than a young possum. Thanks!

Purisima Creek, Spur Trail

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

This one is much easier than the nearby decon cache because of the limited possibilities. Thanks!

The Motherlode #3 - Monarchs of the Forest

By: geekster & tavahi Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Not chosen

This one took me longer than it should have if I had been paying attention. My PN-40 put me about 65 feet up the trail from the cache, and I checked out a couple other monarchs before coming back to the right one. Thanks!

Saluting General of Lobitos Creek

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

This is the second time I have been here finding a cache, but the tree is impressive as ever. The coordinates and a little geosense took me straight to the cache. Thanks!

Purisima Creek, PC07

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

I was in a hurry to head back, so I read the hint and made a quick find. This turned out to be my last cache of the day. Thanks!

Lobitos Lookout

By: wstefanc Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Regular

I think this is a terrain challenge that will grow to be more of a challenge over time. The thorny vines tried to grab my feet as I went by. I saw a young possum, passed the Pampas grass sentinels, and finally made it to the cache. Thanks!

The Lost Village of Grabtown

By: PurplePeople Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

We were camped at Half Moon Bay this weekend with family. I headed up here to work off last night's pie and icecream. My PN-40 didn't take right to the cache, but after wandering around a while, I finally came across it. Thanks!

Lunch Break

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

I didn't need the hint for this one, and the coordinates were right on for me. I decided to drop the Pot O' Gold coin here. If I had brought some lunch with me, this wouldn't have been a bad spot, except that it was a bit sunny and warm here. On the way back, about 1 pm, I was definitely thinking more about lunch. Thanks!

Hot Lead Ahead

By: HMB Lipripper Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

Wirebndr found this one while I was contemplating the possibilities. I was out here one before when the lead was flying, but all was quiet this morning. Thanks!

Tanks For The Cache

By: HMB Lipripper Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

My PN-40 took me to exactly the right spot to find this one. I was worried that a metal container might be rusted shut, but this one opens easily. I took the Pot O' Gold traveler and left a travel from Poland, Blue Eyes. I don't have my note with me right now, so I will log the movements later.

Clumpy

By: HMB Lipripper Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

The coordinates got us to exactly the right spot, and we spotted by looking down. I was somewhat exposed, but nothing that anyone would spot walking down the trail. Thanks!

Feeling Nuts

By: HMB Lipripper Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

Wirebndr cupped his hands while I piled on the nuts. When that approach didn't work, we looked elsewhere and found the cache. Thanks!

A Trail To The Past

By: HMB Lipripper Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I looked for the cache while Wirebndr read the display. There was a bit of condensation this morning, so it was a bit hard to read, but he managed. I found the cache about the time he finished reading, we noted the info we needed and headed on down the trail. Thanks!

Gaffing

By: donnie985 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

Mrs. Bytemobile set up on the beach this afternoon, and I wandered on down to look for this cache. I ended up circling back via the trail to get to this one. Thanks!

This Cache Has Been Blown!

By: HMB Lipripper Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

We set up camp at Francis Beach and I hopped on my bike for a ride up the coast. This cache turned out to be relatively easy find, with good coordinates and a good hint. Thanks!
