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.

Duck Pond

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

I beat the bushes pretty hard, but couldn't spot anything of interest.

Don't eat dead fish

By: workerofwood Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

I poked around a little in the piles of wet leaves, but couldn't come up with anywhere else to hunt.

Oct 26, 2008

Mr. Troll

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

I felt I gave this one a pretty good effort, but I didn't really come up with a place that I thought was well matched to the hint. The stick forks indicate that this is a popular area for kids to play, so I hope it is still there.

Where the Land Ends

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

As I started the hike out here, I spotted a fisherman at the very end of the land, on a ledge, with a line running way down to the ocean. I poked and peeked, and prodded around, but I wasn't able to spot this one.

Acquedotto

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

I'm pretty sure this is a Was Not There rather than a DNF. I found what looked to be the hiding spot, but no bison tube was there.

The Links

By: Gitonyerhorse Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I've thought about looking for this before, but I figured the hunting would surpass my short attention span. I think I figured out the coordinates OK, but had no luck in the hunting part.

Secret Trailhead: Arastradero

By: British Invasion Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I parked at the main Arastradero lot for a bike ride through the preserve this morning. I had a pretty good look for the cache, but couldn't spot it.

Jan 6, 2008

Somewhere on the Way to the Mall

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

Well, I can see how a catomcat cache could be hidden here, but I sure didn't see anything like what drew the attention of the GeoBrowns.

Different approaches

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

I read the description a couple times, followed the directions, reached in, and couldn't find it. [edit: Based on private communications with javawriter, I did not look in the right spot, so it's probably still there.]

Coyote Waits (Nazgul Secret Trailhead #7)

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

This was evidently too tricky for me. I finally gave up and headed back to the Mendoza Ranch entrance for my bike ride.

Dont Blink

By: Mystery Ink Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 4.0 Container: Regular

The folks manning the checkpoint here for Backcountry Weekend must have thought we were slightly deranged. We checked the bushes along the road pretty thoroughly -- both high and low, and even checked all those we could down slope a bit. No luck.

Nov 19, 2006

Shady Coyotes

By: STP Ron Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I stopped by on a late afternoon bike ride. I spent about 10 or 15 minutes here, then gave it up and rode on.

Legend of the Blue Pearls

By: GeoWomyn_SF_CA Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

My brother, elliottpd, was visiting from Michigan, and he was camped with us for the weekend at Half Moon Bay. I had done this series previously, but decided it would make some good bike rides for us. We did the whole series, and my brother especially enjoyed Fishtrap. He may propagate that idea to the Grand Rapids area. We were unable to find the final cache, however. I found it when it was hidden higher, with "orange" as the hint. I thought it must be close by, but we couldn't spot it.

Ask Mr Whyte

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

The final location received a new coat of paint for Pumpkin Festival weekend. The cache could have been removed in the process. At any rate, we were not able to spot it.

Quest for the Masks: Ga-Wahi

By: Eagle81 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I had a pretty good look for this one. I suppose I could have missed it if it's farther out than where I zeroed, but I gave the whole pier a once-over. It looks like the final my be currently inaccessible due to construction further up the trail.

Bla'gard's Ruse 5 - Lime Rock Cascade

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

Well, I read the hints a couple times, backwards and forwards, and tried to perform them, but was unable to come up with the object of interest. I also sifted through the dried leaves on the trail near the cascade in case it had falled down, but no luck.

Sep 4, 2006

Creek-Trestle-Bridge-Sand Box

By: G A-DayTrippers Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

After picking up some Labor Day picnic supplies at Safeway, I had time for a couple caches, and stopped here first. Another couple showed up to search while I was looking. I left first, and no one had spotted it by then. One of my fingers did manage to find a stinging nettle, though.

Hidden Beach Park and View

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

This is a nice spot that I hadn't visited before. I sure didn't see a cache, though.

Aug 12, 2006

Seacliff State Beach

By: 50sumtin & Pink Static Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

If this hide is anything like the other 50sumtin cache I did today, this one is gone.
