You Can Bank On This One

By: rpruitt1948 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Other

The bank was open and busy today, but I was fairly quick. Thanks!

VTA Fruitdale Station

By: cachbefound Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I came off the LG Creek Trail to bike over to this one. Thanks!

I'm Green with Envy

By: rpruitt1948 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

The cache was just visible enough that I was able to spot it quickly. Thanks!

The Rusty Bridge

By: rpruitt1948 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I biked on past here, but stopped, had a look at my GPSr and pedaled on back. This one might have been a lot more difficult. Thanks!

You Can Bank on this One 3

By: rpruitt1948 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Other

It didn't take too long to spot this one. What took the time was signing. Thanks!

VTA Downtown Campbell Station

By: cachbefound Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

This was near my starting point for a bike ride this morning. No problem spotting the cache. Thanks!

Watch out for the cars

By: rpruitt1948 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

This made for a quick stop along the trail. Once I read what size the cache was, I spotted it quickly. Thanks!

Resting at St. Elizabeth Park

By: rpruitt1948 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I rode my bike from the LG Creek Trail since this was a short distance away. The playground was in use, but this was far enough away to not draw attention. Thanks!

Trader Geo's

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

I rode my bike over here after a ride on the LG Creek Trail. No problem finding the cache. Thanks!

Just Did It Again!

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

I had just found a couple of these, so I was in a groove. After looking around a little bit and letting a couple people pass I had a new idea of where to look. Thanks!

Nov 24, 2010

Jack and Jill

By: BrokenZen and Tumbling Cow Pie Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 4.0 Container: Small

I considered the advice given in the hint, then went ahead and tried it with no luck. The coordinates consistently pointed me to the wrong side of the road, so they were of no help.

Baldwin Lookout

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I had some trouble with this one, but finally spotted it. The corners of the lid are going and the cache had a bit of water in it, but the log is still signable.

Beware of Rattlesnakes

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Not chosen

I brought my bike up here, but it was a lot of pushing on bumpy little trails. No problem spotting the cache.

Wilder Trail Mix

By: Euell Gibbons Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Micro

I whipped out my flashlight and looked in the wrong spot, but soon found the right one. Thanks!

Pros ·per·i·ty

By: DarkZen and Beautiful Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

Great views out here this morning. I hiked past three guys working in the field, but it didn't seem to be a problem hiking here. Thanks!

Hey Diddle Diddle

By: DarkDish and EvilSpoon Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

The GPSr seemed a little uncertain here, but I looked around and finally spotted the hiding place. Thanks!

Where the Land Ends

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

There must be two replacement caches, but I could only find one. The signatures on the replacement log were from October, but didn't include the latest finders. I used the hint and found a small cache there.

El Gallo del Cielo

By: Carlos "ZenPie" Saragosa Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Micro

I put my GPSr in its holster, put both hands on the handlebar to operate the brakes and proceeded slowly down the hill. My spill was low speed, but I managed to scrape my forearm a bit. After I stopped and found the cache, I was pretty well recovered. Thanks!

Baldwin Girl Hikes Baldwin Loop

By: Trail Reader Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I ditched my bike and hiked over to this one. The weather was bright and sunny today with no marine layer to obscure the view. Thanks!

On The Escarpment

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

This one is a bit off trail, but the finder is rewarded with a box full of goodies and a great view. Thanks!

Shelob's Stair

By: Sgt Stitches Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Small

I had a DNF on this some time ago. Today, I investigated more carefully and came up with the cache. The air was a little cool this morning, but you could see forever. Thanks!

Mr. Baldwin--Enchanted By Bark

By: Trail Reader Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

The excellent hint made this one a quick stop compared to the last cache I found. Thanks!

enchanted ?

By: hotshoe Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I had just stopped my bike when I spotted this one. No time wasted on the hunt. Thanks!

Whither Will You?

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I at a snack bar while I waited for two groups to pass, then quickly made the find. The cache was floating in a pool of water, but evidently it is not a problem.

Our Pilot

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

I had a look at this in the Google satellite view before heading out, and parked right in front of it. I found it before resorting to my GPSr. I then headed out for a hike at Windy Hill. Thanks!

Teensy Valley View

By: GoGoJo Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

I spent a little while looking for this. The hide is in full view of hikers coming down the trail, so most of the time was spent trying not to look demented or depraved. I spotted the cache after about the third look at the hiding spot. I am not much for the hide and seek portion of the game, so a hint is always welcome. Thanks!

Valley View: Bites & Stings

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

No bites or stings today. I think this is a great time of year to be out here. Thanks!

Evergreen Valley View

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

I skipped this on the way up because of hikers on the trail. On the way back, I had plenty of time by myself. I was surprised by the size of the cache, but maybe I should have read the description better. Thanks!

Behind the Black Hole

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

I headed up Windy Hill by a different route, and came by here on the way back. The cache is full of goodies for kids looking for a treasure in the woods. Thanks!

Even Better Valley View

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

The view was better today at the lower elevations. Up here it was foggy with poor visibility and some moisture in the air and on everything. No problem with the cache. Thanks!

Sweet Springs Trail

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

I am surprised how long this has gone without an online log. I remember a couple signatures after PDFrogs, but they were also in April. Was it 2009? I don't remember checking the year. The cache was in good shape. Thanks!

Bobcat

By: SIR GEEK Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I'm sure the hikers and bikers wondered what I was up to. No problem finding & signing. Thanks!

The Legend of El Wombatadero

By: Dr. Agon Swest, History Perfesser Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

I let the approaching hikers pass as I slowed down a bit. No problem finding this one once I had a little privacy. Thanks!

Tree Fort Trouble

By: SIR GEEK Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

I was expecting this to me a little more trouble than it really was. I picked it up on my way out to Windy Hill. Thanks!

Nov 14, 2010

Open Field

By: SIR GEEK Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

I came out to maintain my own caches, then hiked over to this one. Thanks!

Swamp Monster

By: Jonathan Z Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

The coordinates were about 30 feet off for me, but the hint did the trick. Thanks!

Mr. Troll

By: Skip Fore Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

I have been back here once before a couple years ago, and I remember a lot of searching. Today the hint worked out for me and I came up with the cache. Thanks!

Bushed?

By: Batch218 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I had never been all the way out on this point before. I tend to limit my travels to the spots were there are caches. Thanks!

Big Daddy

By: PurplePeople Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I saw a few of Big Daddy's races on TV years ago in Michigan. I didn't know about his HMB races until reading the cache description. Thanks for the history!

Quarrymen No. 1

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

I got this one on the way down, and had no problem finding it. Thanks!

Sunset Bonus

By: HMB Lipripper Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

I would recommend the sunrise rather than sunset. There were plenty of folks going by, but the bench was very wet from dew. This trail has been upgraded in a major way since I was last here a couple years ago. Finding the cache was the easy part. I had more trouble than usual signing and replacing, but I did finally accomplish the task. Thanks!

BedRock!

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

This was my first trip to Quarry Park. I had no trail map, and I'm not sure one exists. I got to within 440 feet of GZ, then was losing hope as I reached 0.2 miles away. Finally the trail turned and I reached the cache area. The view was great this morning since the fog had just lifted. This was a great spot for a cache. Thanks!

Old Granada

By: donnie985 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I had read the first plaque on a previous cache hunt. The other two were new to me. When I reached the final location, I figured I might have messed up, so I sat down to review my notes. After reading the hint, I thought I might be in the right spot, and eventually found the cache near my feet. Thanks!

Carter Park

By: Mitten1 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I found a cache a couple years ago that was overlooking the park, so I knew it was here. I came by on a bike ride today. Thanks!

The Pilarcitos Creek Multistage Cache

By: donnie985 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I biked over from the Francis Beach campground. I had been on this trail before, but hadn't spent so much time on the signage. Thanks!

Jane's First HMB Hide

By: sealjane Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

I was riding my bike around HMB today and made a stop to find this one. Thanks!

Sea More Beach Access

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

I made this one the last of the afternoon. I was out riding my bike and put in a couple more miles to grab this one. The hint did the trick for me and I quickly spotted the cache. Thanks!

Half Moon Bay Library

By: donnie985 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I found this on Friday and read about the free wi-fi. Saturday I came back to use the wi-fi and log several more caches. Thanks!
