So many caches, So little time, event

I'm hoping that Mrs. niraD and I can attend. If we do, then we'll want to stop by Marianne's on the way back home... :-)

SPS1 (Stolen Puzzles Series #1)

By: jasmerb Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

My first solution didn't make any sense, so I broke down the puzzle a little more and got a solution that looked much better. Tonight I dropped by to find the cache on the way home after work. I found it quickly, since I had been considering exactly the same hide myself. I guess great minds think alike. [:D] TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig tokens, SL. TFTC!

Between A Rock And A Hard Place

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

This one has been at the top of my "nearest to work" list for a while, and this morning, I finally dropped by to search for it before work. I found it quickly, thanks to the excellent coordinates. This is one of those locations where no one pays any attention to you, even when there are lots of people passing by.

PC Cache

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

This one has been at the top of my "nearest to church" list for too long. This morning, I finally dropped by to search for it before work. When I reached GZ, I was pretty sure I knew what to look for, and I was right. Nicely done! I'll keep my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token for this nano-cache moving.

I-5, An Amazing Thing!

By: NR_Teacher Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

My wife and I stopped here on the way home from a week at Lake Siskiyou. After we enjoyed lunch at a shady table, I dropped by to find this cache. I spent too much time searching the wrong place, before looking at the arrow and realizing that the cache 30-40' away. T a few signature items, L a few nice trade items (including a ready-to-hide micro-cache) and my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig tokens, SL. TFTC!

SQUARED AWAY

By: Corgi Clan Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I solved this one quickly last year, since I used the technique myself to stump classmates in grade school. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to search for the cache until now. I spotted the container right away, even though it looks almost natural the way it's hidden. I will keep my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token for this nano-cache moving.

RuStuMPed?

By: Mtnshasta Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

Finding the container was easy: It was right where I had found it last year. And after the frustration of being unable to solve the puzzle last year, this time the "Aha!" moment came quickly. Actually, the "Aha!" moment came so quickly that it felt a lot more like a "Duh!" moment. After logging the cache, I got help jumping our minivan's battery, and then we drove straight to Brook's Complete Auto Repair. Needless to say, our afternoon plans changed. TN, L a few decorative pencils and my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. Thanks for a great "on site" puzzle, and TFTC!

Montague

By: Chinookcapt and Blonde-D Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

The Yreka Western Railroad wasn't running this year, so my wife and I drove to Montague to have lunch at Ms. Lynn's Tea. After lunch, I dropped by to grab this cache. I'll keep my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token for this micro-cache moving. TNLNSL, TFTC!

I hate I-5, So let's travel a different way!

By: Uncle Al from Sacramento Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

This afternoon, our minivan had problems with the charging system. My wife and I left it at Brook's Complete Auto Repair, then walked over to this park. This was a beautiful spot for lunch. Then my wife stayed here and read, while I set off to DNF a nearby cache. [:I] An hour or so later, Brook's called to let us know that our minivan was ready!

Faery Tale

By: MtnMike Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

My wife and I drove and hiked up here from our campsite at Lake Siskiyou. The waterfall was a great spot to enjoy a picnic lunch. T StunNoni sig token 0097, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, a ready-to-hide micro-cache, and a [url=http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?tracker=TB2G3HF]Micro GPS Geocoin[/url] that wants to visit as many caches as possible.

Dunnigan, Again

By: ChrissySkyking + Blaze Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

My wife and I stopped here on our way to Lake Siskiyou, and I decided to grab a cache during our break. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Nicely done. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!
