Yuba Drive Trail Head

By: GoGoJo Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I dropped by to find this one, and then rode my bike along the Stevens Creek Trail to get to work. Once I stopped looking for the kind of hide that I "knew" would be here, I found it quickly, since I've found several others just like this one. But I spent quite a bit of time looking for something else entirely.

Duck Duck Google

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

After returning from a company picnic in Santa Cruz, I walked over to grab this one. I had the place to myself, and found it quickly, exactly where I thought it might be (but was unable to search) when I was here before. It's so easy to take for granted the beautiful places just outside my office window. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig tokens, SL. TFTC!

A Hard One

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

I was in Santa Cruz for a company picnic, and spent the afternoon finding the caches for a few of 50sumtin's puzzles. I actually solved them all a year ago, in preparation for last year's company picnic. This was the first of four. I recognized the theme of the puzzle immediately, so I was able to solve it quickly. Knowing the theme of the puzzle, I found the cache quickly too, although I did walk past it initially. I'm not used to the way a real GPSr lets you overshoot GZ. TNLNSL.

Where's the * & %$#@! cache?

By: that * & %$#@! 50sumtin Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

I was in Santa Cruz for a company picnic, and spent the afternoon finding the caches for a few of 50sumtin's puzzles. I actually solved them all a year ago, in preparation for last year's company picnic. This was the second of four. I recognized the theme of this one immediately, and solved it in seconds. Finding the cache took much, much longer, however. After far too long, I finally contracted my search radius and returned to GZ, trusted the terrain rating of the cache, and found the well-hidden container in one of the firs t places I had searched: obviously, I had not searched it thoroughly enough.

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I was in Santa Cruz for a company picnic, and spent the afternoon finding the caches for a few of 50sumtin's puzzles. I actually solved them all a year ago, in preparation for last year's company picnic. This was the third of four. It took a bit of research to figure out the theme for this puzzle. I enjoy learning about new things like that. I found the cache quickly, given my recent experience with a very similar hide. TNLNSL.

50SUMTIN's Nonogram Puzzle

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I was in Santa Cruz for a company picnic, and spent the afternoon finding the caches for a few of 50sumtin's puzzles. I actually solved them all a year ago, in preparation for last year's company picnic. This was the last of four. This was the first nonogram I solved, although before finding the cache for this one, I solved and found another one that's closer to home. It's an interesting type of puzzle, although I'm sure they're easier to solve when you know the solution will contain coordinates. I found the cache quickly, given my recent experience with similar hides. TNLNSL. I'll keep my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token for this nano-cache moving.

Duck Duck Google

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

I can see the cache site from my office, so I figured it was time for me to drop by. I saw a rabbit (or maybe it was a hare), but no ducks or geese. I'm pretty sure I know where the cache is, but I wasn't able to check there since a muggle had settled nearby and he didn't look like he'd be leaving anytime soon. I'll be back.

I rode along the Permanente Creek Trail after work, and then came over here for the quick find at a nice location. TN, L foreign coins and my [url=http://niraD.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!
