The Double Cache of Doubleness

By: GraffnTrix and Dorian Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I dropped by this afternoon to redeem my earlier DNF. When I arrived, willye6 and a couple of his friends had already retrieved the cache. I loaned him a pen so he could sign the log, and then they replaced the cache right where the hint in the first "brother" said it belonged. Some experimentation revealed that the first tool I had tried might have retrieved the cache with some difficulty, that the second tool I had tried wouldn't work at all, and that a third tool (which I hadn't had with me last time) retrieved the cache easily. I left my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token for this nano-cache with willye6. TNLNSL. Thanks for placing this creative multi-cache, and TFTC!

I feel pretty...Oh so pretty

Mrs. niraD and I spent an enjoyable afternoon with two other couples on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Monterey Bay Aquarium. On the way back to the car, we stopped here and I introduced the others to geocaching. It was a beautiful spot to stop on this warm November afternoon. There was no stash note, so I left a weatherproof one. TN, [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

The Double Cache of Doubleness

By: GraffnTrix and Dorian Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

This cache was on my "nearest to church" list and sounded interesting, so I dropped by to find it. I didn't find the first "brother", but I spotted a location where I thought the second "brother" might be hiding. Unfortunately, the tool I had available could not retrieve the second "brother", but using it, I thought I could detect the second "brother" in its hiding place. I returned shortly with a different tool, but when I tried to use it to retrieve the second "brother", I came up empty. I searched for the first "brother" some more, and then decrypted the hint automatically on my mobile device (despite the CO's attempt to thwart automatic decryption). I then foun d the first "brother" quickly and read the the hint inside, which confirmed that I was searching for the second "brother" in the correct location, but indicated a different type of container than I was expecting. Unfortunately, I found no sign of the type of container indicated by the hint inside th e first "brother".

The CO should probably check on the second "brother".
