Wilder Overlook and Benchmark

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

Just as I was examining the benchmark, three cyclists pulled up to the picnic table for a break and some pictures. I waited them out, then paced the distance to the cache. Thanks!

Will We Ever Know The Answer?

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

Neat little plaque! I made this my turn-around point and headed back down the switchbacks after finding the cache. Thanks!

Princess in the Pines

By: Tracy7781 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

My GPSr seemed a little uncertain here, so I had to search a bit up and down the trail, but I finally found the first stage. The first thing I found at the second stage was a ripped pair of boxer shorts, but I eventually backtracked a little and found the cache. Thanks!

No Bones About It II

By: Arrow One Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

Interesting idea for a multi. Hiking off trail is nothing like California. Besides being against park rules, you would be met with poison oak everywhere. Thanks!

Guarding Lake Mayer

By: TipTopTommy & Goody adopted by Nurse 1 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

I was expecting to see a plaque somewhere about the statue, then I read the hint and continued on. The weather was quite nice today in the shade. Thanks!

Where's the Fire?

By: Nurse 1 Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

Another innovative hid by the CO. I drove downtown to have my first look at Savannah and took a hike around a few squares. Thanks!

PLL - 34 Years of Faithful Service

By: Gunguy & TheoryofBen Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

My career is 37 years so far. Hope to last a few more years. Thanks!

Coyote Valley and Anderson Lake View Tour

By: Geokashers Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Micro

The structure was indeed a curiosity. I would have come over to look at it, even without the cache incentive. Thanks for the tour!

Chapman's Swifts

By: Rose Red and Dancing Penguin Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Other

Rain started coming down while I read the signs and computed, so I probably looked pretty silly out there. The o-ring seems to be doing the job on the cache. Thanks!

The Hunt @ Witch's Castle Returns

By: Hopalong & HobbleAlong Cachedy Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

This was a nice hiking multi with a cool structure to visit along the way. The creek was roaring and it was a bit muddy today. I was dressed for the weather and enjoyed the hike. Thanks!

Tower Music-Go-Round II

By: Hopalong & HobbleAlong Cachedy Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I happened upon the plaques with the needed information by accident rather than planning, but I eventually found all the data, sat down and did some computing, and found the final without much problem. There were some low clouds that hampered visibility, but other than that it was a good day up here. Thanks!

Council Crest Cache

By: Brad, Chad, Joel and Paula Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I like to go the extra mile for a really old cache, and I went it for this one. I learned out of necessity how to setup my Garmin to project waypoints using magnetic rather than true north (it makes a big difference at 185 meters!). I hiked up and down the hill a couple times, but finally got everything right. Thanks!

Mar 13, 2011

U.N.C.L.E. Med

By: LiefPhotos Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Other

It took less than five minutes to reach the final, but signing and reassembling took a while. Thanks!

Urban Wildlife

By: Trivial Pursuits Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

I am staying with Mrs. Bytemobile at The Nines for a conference, and some of the points of interest are right across the street. We visited the Portland Art Museum yesterday and picked up a few more points of interest along the way. I found the last couple points this morning and the cache. Thanks for a nice downtown tour!

We Love you Bro, Memorial Cache

By: Robert-Nunes Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

With a trip out to the pier, I figured out the coordinates of the final -- a couple hundred feet from where my trailer was parked. It was happy hour, though, and I decided to wait until the first thing Saturday morning. Thanks!

Burn Notice

By: lumens Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

The first stage was the most challenging for me, but I hung around and eventually came up with it. Good work! I was on my bike, so I knocked off the remaining stages while I got a little exercise. 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!

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!

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!

Walk the Plank

By: jdevor Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Small

I was out doing maintenance on one of my own caches, and decided to ride the new section of the Bay Trail and find this cache. The hint for the final is excellent advice in most situations. Thanks!
