Lou Seale

By: Mr Prez 24 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I like this park. This was a quick UPS delivery on the way to work this morning. There are obvious signs of a failed attachment mechanism, but the cache was well hidden in a more mundane manner. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

Boulwhere?

By: SpikeCage Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

This was a fun multi, in a nice little park that I'd never been to before. I had trouble with some of the answers, but fortunately they were ones (b & f) for which the value was pretty obvious once I started figuring out the coordinates. The container was interesting, but it doesn't seem very durable or waterproof.

International Monetary Exchange

By: chasam & jayaway Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

Given the location of this one, I decrypted the hint immediately. Unfortunately, I thoroughly misinterpretted it, so it didn't help at all. Fortunately, I found the cache quickly anyway. My wife insists on keeping all our non-US currency, so I didn't exchange any here. T [url=http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?tracker=TB1HZDV]Chasam's Hawai`i Micro Geocoin[/url] to get it started on its journey, L my [url=http://niraD.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL.

Kidnap

By: The Rat Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

This one was at the top of my "nearest to home" list, so I had to take it on. (It would have taken a [b]long[/b] time for [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GCH9GG]the original cache[/url] based on this story to appear on that list...) I've been near Stages 1 and 2 a lot these past two weeks for orientation classes with my new employer, but the answer still surprised me when I actually stood there and looked for the specified information. Today I was near Stages 3 and 4, so I dropped by for the info I needed, and then decided to drive several miles to get the final. TN, L my [url=http://niraD.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. Next up on my "nearest to home" list: [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC10PR8] Fort Boyard[/url]! Thanks for the history lesson, and TFTC!

Hoover's Playground

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

Okay, so I'm officially an "old fart" now: I remember finding a now-archived cache that used to be in this park before this one. The camouflage on this one is excellent. I found it quickly only because I happened to touch upon its location right away, thanks largely to the excellent coordinates.

Thanks for an excellent spot to enjoy this beautiful morning, and TFTC!

Almost Eden

Where have all the flowers gone?

By: WalruZ Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I dropped by on my way home tonight. There was no stash note, so I left a waterproof one. TN, L [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]my trackable sig token[/url], SL. Thanks for the bit of history, and TFTC!

Above Troubled Waters

This was a quick find before work this morning, but I've seen this hide style before. TN, L my [url=http://niraD.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

Little Shop of Horrors IV

By: workerofwood Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

That was fun. I got to see some of the madness coming soon to a cache near you [:D], and I got to examine one of the [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GCK1CC]ANX[/url] clue tokens. I didn't spot the clue, but I did get to examine the token. I had thought about bringing what I needed to make another container like the one in [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GCNB05]Almost Eden[/url], but I barely had time to drop by for an hour while preparing for that evening's [url=http://www.therallyeclub.org/what.htm]gimmick car rallye[/url] (I was the rallyemaster.) I will keep my [url=http://niraD.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token for this event cache moving, but I won't move it very far. Thanks for an excellent event!

Lost in the Woods

By: Mystery Ink (adopted by Workerofwood) Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

How could I not grab this one while hear for [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC12R97]LSOH4[/url]? I managed to provide some entertainment for another cacher, who watched me almost touch the cache while examining something else. TN, [url=http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?tracker=TB11M3C]L Brought to you by the letter Y[/url] TB and my [url=http://niraD.sigitem.com/]trackable[/ url] sig tokens for this cache and for LSOH4, SL.
