Parking in Rear

By: gdict Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

This one has been at the top of my "nearest to home" list for a while, so I dropped by on the way to work this morning. I had the place to myself, until the Foothill Disposal truck made its rounds. There was no stash note, so I left a waterproof one. I'm glad I didn't need to decrypt the hint by hand. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

POP #2

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

After my recent DNF, I re-worked the puzzle and came up with the same solution as before. But when I checked my coordinates with the solution, I discovered some misplaced digits. Oops... Anyway, I was in the area again, so I popped by for the quick find. Yes, it's much easier with the right coordinates... TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. Thanks for the "pop" quiz, and TFTC!

Caching in a Parallel Universe

By: dgreno Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

This was my 600th find! w00t! I spend a lot of time in that parallel universe, but while the puzzle was easy for me, I was surprised to learn about something new while solving it. This morning, I was in the area for a dentist appointment, so I dropped by for the quick find on the way back to work. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

Elementary-School Math - Golf Caching Diversions

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

This one was showing up on my "nearest to church" list, so I solved it a couple weeks ago. Once I figured out the theme, the math was easy, but tedious. After crunching out a couple sets by hand, I found a tool to do the rest. This morning I dropped by "on the way" to work. It was a beautiful day for a ride through the baylands! There was no stash note, so I left a waterproof one.

This one is so-o-o much easier when you search at the correct coordinates! Anyway, today was a beautiful morning for a bike ride through the baylands before work. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

POP #2

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

I had "solved" this one some time ago, and was in the area this morning, so I dropped by. I found nothing. I thought the location I found looked like a "pop top" from the air, but now that I'm back at a computer, it doesn't look like WeBeDnD's aerial photo. I'll need to solve this one correctly before I try again...

End of the Road

By: blackfrancis, adopted by Team Nazgul Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

It had been more than a month since I'd gone geocaching, but this was a beautiful sunny morning for a bike ride through the baylands before work! I found this cache quickly, in the first place I looked. There was no stash note, so I left a waterproof one. [url=http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?tracker=TB1BXPM]"Lugoba, Tanzania" Unite for Diabetes Travel Bug[/url] is doing fine, but [url=http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?tracker=TBPCF7]ureca #3 (USA Geocoin)[/url] was nowhere to be found.
