Regarding the Cache

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

I passed this by and hiked back over the bridge. No problems finding. Thanks!

Start of something fun

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

Good coordinates. After hiking to the spot, I noticed something out of place, and quickly spotted the cache. Thanks!

Gravity Overcomes Friction

By: ACEMIB Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

I accidentally skipped this one on the way up to Seat of Stone, but I caught my mistake and grabbed it on the way back. Thanks!

Seat of Stone

By: Nemglan Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Micro

I have noticed this one ever since it was hidden a few years ago. I haven't been able to plan a hike that included it until today. I decided that some new squashyo caches along the road and at the bottom of the trail was a good enough excuse for hiking up to this point. It was a nice afternoon for hiking, but the trail was a little steep. Tha nks!

Anyone need a taxi?

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

This is certainly a unique cache. I have never run across anything quite like it. Thanks!

Support wildlife, throw a party.

By: Squashyo Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

I zipped on past this one and after I came back, I had my nose on the GPSr while my son quickly made the find. Thanks!

LG Creek Delight

By: Sharples Family Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

I dismounted my bike and quickly made the find. I left the cache a little less exposed than when I found it. Thanks!

Acquedotto

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

The last time I was here, there was little or no water and no cache. Both items were remedied today. My son quickly made the find on the unique cache. Thanks!

Bee Alert

By: Rosy3 Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

It took a few minutes, but we found the cache. I was out for a bike ride with son and daughter-in-law (jogging). This was the last one and fairly close to where we parked. Thanks!

Slippery When Wet 2.0

By: workerofwood Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

My son and daughter-in-law were petting the friendly white cat while I made the find and signed. The camo make it look like this one has been out here quite a long time. Thanks!

Tiny Bugs

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

My new daughter-in-law quickly made the find as I was checking the wrong side of the tree. Thanks!

Nov 23, 2009

Duck Pond

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

Well today I had much better luck. Greenbee17 and I rode out this morning to retrieve the nearby Venona clue, and we stopped by here for a second look. The pond was quite a bit lower than the last time I was here. The cache was a relatively quick find. Thanks!

Oat Hill Mine Road Trailhead

By: Team Dromomania Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I didn't know there was a trailhead here. It was a beautiful day for hiking, and the many vehicles at the trailhead suggested that it was being taken advantage of. Wirebndr had his foot in a cast, so he wasn't up for a long hike. Thanks!

Smile 1992

By: MartianRabbit Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

We gave up and headed for the nearby virtual, but I glimpsed something on the way back and quickly made the find. Thanks!

Calistoga Natural

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

Thanks for the good hints. Without a hint a sculpture cache can be a real needle in a haystack. Wirebnder got under and made the find. Thanks!

Warren's Family Tree

By: The HotwheelsGang Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

We had a nice visit at the grist mill, and an informative lecture and demo by the docent. We stopped for a quick find on the way out. Thanks!

Back of the Train!!

By: geobobb16 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Finally, our first find of the morning, but we almost gave up. The hints were very good, but it turns out there were two of everything, and we were looking at the wrong one for most of the time.

Thumb Fun

By: PassingWind Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

We took a quick tour of the winery grounds and noted the necessary info at the point of interest. Thanks!

Nov 20, 2009

Rock Of Ages

By: A Team Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Ours was the second closest RV to the cache. I couldn't resist going for a walk late this afternoon and made a quick find. Thanks!

Nov 14, 2009

Duck Duck Google

By: wildbun Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

I had time for one more cache before heading home for lunch. This took longer than expected, but I finally found it. Thanks!

Wickedly Retired

By: Runnerinwoods Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I parked on a nearby sidestreet and hiked on over. No problems finding the cache. Thanks!

Juan Rode Here

By: Gitonyerhorse Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I was riding my bike around and didn't realize that the Hammond-Snyder Loop was no bikes. I found a nearby access point, though and got the cache after a short search. Thanks!

The New Bridge In Town

By: GoGoJo Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I rode my bike over the bridge a couple times to count things, then I entered the coordinates wrong. I finally got things straightened out after riding a half mile out of my way. Thanks!

Northern Passage From Middlefield

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

I hiked to the nearby school before reading the cache description. I was 38 feet away, so I read the cache description and hiked back to Middlefield. I was right about where the cache resided but had a hard time finding it. Thanks!

Roxy's Got Back

By: deeznutz ® Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I was killing a little time before my oldest son's wedding this afternoon. No problems on a Saturday morning. Thanks!

Cliff Hanger

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

I was dressed pretty nicely, but I wanted to see what made this cache interesting. I hiked over from the suggested parking and had a look. It was fairly easy to grab, so I went for it. Thanks!

Seven Hundred M/O

By: kd6dun and Jack Daniels Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I didn't have far to walk for this one, but it it definitely not a park and grab. I was killing a little time this morning be for my son's wedding. Thanks!

Gate to Nowhere

By: Mr Smeee Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I dropped Mrs. Bytemobile off at my son's condo to help the girls get ready for the wedding. I killed an hour and a half geocaching. This was the first, just a few hundred feet from my son's front door. Thanks!

Nov 6, 2009

Flor-Abunda

By: campyc Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

Mrs. Bytemobile and I toured the visitor center first, then wandered around for the cache. We headed down the sidewalk next to the road, but discovered we couldn't get there from here. I found an easy path to the cache for an easy find. Thanks!

Outlet M & M's

By: Heath and Dee; Adopted by gsmX2 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

This was an easy find after I directed Mrs. Bytemobile on where to park according to the GPSr. Thanks!

Nov 5, 2009

Brisas Or Bust

By: Big Eagle Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

No problem finding this one, though it was out of sight. I don't think I would bring my bike here. Thanks!

Boney View Tool Cache

By: BKMV Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

There was just a ziploc bag with the cache contents pretty much intact. I wonder how this will survive the rains this winter. Thanks!

Gimme an I...!

By: Let's Fly Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I was down for my son's wedding and headed out for a little hike and caching expedition this morning. Thanks!

I Believe In Magic

By: agouracharger Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

I spotted the trailhead on a previous trip. This morning, I headed out early and hiked up the mountain. Thanks!

Nov 2, 2009

Blue Tennis

By: SpinningCompass Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

This was probably my closest unfound non-puzzle cache. I was out and about today, and made a quick stop for this one. Thanks!

Nov 1, 2009

Bring me a Shrubbery!

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

This was an easy find. The shrubbery was pretty beaten down, so I just sat down and grabbed the container. Thanks!

Amuse-bouche @ the bend

By: baldmonk Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

I headed out mid-afternoon to kill a little time and retrieve a few caches. The parking lots were full, so I parked in the subdivision closest to the park. Thanks!

Inspiration Bench

By: MotorBug Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

I don't think I have been on this particular trail before. I certainly don't remember this bench. Today it was my rest spot and turn-around point for my little caching expedition. Thanks!
