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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.]

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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