Hillside Destruction

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

My wife was at a fish-a-thon at the nearby quarry, sponsored by the Cupertino Lions. I was dogsitting, to keep her guide dog out of the pond and away from the fish. This was a quick PNG on the way back down the hill for a few other caches. There was no stash note, so I left a waterproof one.

Rocky Road

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

My wife was at a fish-a-thon at the nearby quarry, sponsored by the Cupertino Lions. I was dogsitting, to keep her guide dog out of the pond and away from the fish. This was my third find. I found it fairly quickly, given the effectiveness of the camouflage, but I remembered the size and description, and there really wasn't much else around to search.

Is this the beginning or the end?

By: Sharkz & bullit Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

My wife was at a fish-a-thon at the nearby quarry, sponsored by the Cupertino Lions. I was dogsitting, to keep her guide dog out of the pond and away from the fish. This was my second find. It was hidden at the first location I searched, but I was focused on other hide techniques. I finally found this one after wandering away to search other locations, and eventually reading the hint.

FORE!!!!!!

By: Sharkz Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

My wife was at a fish-a-thon at the nearby quarry, sponsored by the Cupertino Lions. I was dogsitting, to keep her guide dog out of the pond and away from the fish. This was my fourth find, before heading back up the hill to pick her up. (She caught 4 nice-size trout, BTW.) After walking to the back of the park for this cache, her guide dog and I ran back to the car. I was out of breath, but he was eager for more.

Fennel (was Bamboo)

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

This morning, I was leading the boys in our church's CSB Stockade program on a geocaching hike. This was our second find.

Almost Natural

By: Rocket Girl and DuckeyLee Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I found this one last year. This morning, I was leading the boys in our church's CSB Stockade program on a geocaching hike, and we finished with this nicely camouflaged cache. The log was damp and quite full, and there was no stash note, so I left a waterproof stash note/replacement log.

Shoreline Trailhead

By: MotorBug Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

Last year, I found the previous incarnation of this one (a micro). This morning, I was leading the boys in our church's CSB Stockade program on a geocaching hike, and we started with this trailhead cache while waiting for latecomers.

The Dump

By: Joseph Ruff Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

This morning, I was leading the boys in our church's CSB Stockade program on a geocaching hike. This was our third find. The stash note was in pretty bad shape, so I left a new waterproof one. We snapped a photo as well.

Battles of the Arachnoids

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

A few days ago, I dropped by Stage 1 again. If I had taken more thorough notes when I was here a year ago for [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GCD84F]another multi-cache[/url], then I could have gone straight to Stage 2. With that in mind, I decided to Google the information needed for the Stage 3 coordinates. Fortunately, I decided to drop by Stage 2 anyway ("just for verification"), because the info I Googled was wrong. With the correct coordinates, I set off for Stage 3. I wasn't very surprised when I reached G Z.

Given the proximity of many muggles, I decided to use the hint right away. That redirected me away from a couple incorrect options, but ended up distracting me some because the hide location no longer quite matches the hint. I couldn't figure out how to hide the cache where it would match the hi nt, so I replaced it where I found it.

There was no stash note, so I left a waterproof one. T Scorpion King 2007 sig poker chip, L seashells, [url=http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?tracker=TB11XTJ]Brought to you by t he letter S[/url] TB, and my [url=http://niraD.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

POP #7

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

I figured out this puzzle quickly, in part because I had been planning a very similar puzzle cache of my own. Great minds think alike, right? SMILIE Today, I stopped by for the cache while running errands. There was no stash note, so I left a waterproof one. TN, L my [url=http://niraD.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

Patience

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

I am one of the "users of advanced browser toolage" for whom the 10/16/03 update was written. Fortunately, I had already figured out what I needed to do via another technique, so the update wasn't quite a spoiler. Today, I stopped by for the cache while running errands. I found it in a location that didn't quite match the hint, so I replaced it just a short distance away where it would match the hint. The log sheet was quite full, so I left a waterproof one.

Killjoy's Krypt

By: doctor killjoy Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

This one showed up on my "nearest to home" list, so I dropped by while running errands. Given its location, I'm glad it was a quick find. There was no stash note, so I left a waterproof one.
