drum and cofee's first lay

By: morningcofee Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

I was in the area, and decided to give this one a try. It took me a while to expand my search radius enough to find this one. Fortunately, it was easy to spot once I reached the correct location. There was no stash note, so I left a weatherproof one. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig tokens, SL. TFTC!

Odd Nuts #3 Ramac

By: Team Leggoes Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I was in the area, and this cache looked interesting. I couldn't help but wonder what kind of nut I'd find. This is a nice little park, although I couldn't help but wonder how hot the playground equipment was, given the sun and lack of shade. And I've definitely never seen one of those used as a cache container before. I'll keep my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token for this nano-cache moving. TNLNSL, TFTC!

Lurking By the Hetch Hetchy

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

This one has been at the top of my "nearest to home" list for a while, and I finally dropped by to search for it while running errands. I found it in the first place I looked. It's certainly the most elaborate implementation of this particular hide technique that I've found. I'm just glad I read the hint after I'd found the cache. My [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token for this cache wouldn't quite fit, so I'll keep it moving. TNLNSL, TFTC!

Charleston Recovery Cache

By: DragonsWest Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

This was a nice spot to enjoy the summer afternoon. I liked the camouflage: most muggles will ignore it completely, but it was the first thing I checked when I reached GZ. There was no stash note, so I left a weatherproof one. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

Joker

By: musicguy Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

This was a beautiful summer morning to enjoy the garden. I found the cache quickly, once my phone settled down and I identified GZ. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. Then I spent some time on one of the nearby benches just enjoying the garden. Thanks for bringing me here, and TFTC!

It Takes A Village

By: thelins Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I was running errands today, and this cache showed up on my "nearest to Trader Joe's" list. I enjoyed taking a break in this pleasant little park, which I had to myself. I spotted the cache quickly. The log was a bit damp, so I let it dry in the sun. There was no stash note, so I left a weatherproof one. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. Thanks for bringing me back to this park, and TFTC!

The cache I can't think of a good name for

By: WannaGoCaching Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

This one showed up at the top of my "nearest to home" list, so I dropped by this evening to search for it. I had the place to myself, and spotted it quickly. I did a little CITO before I left. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

Paced Hunter

By: The Petoskey Stones Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

Mrs. niraD and I happened to be in the area this morning, and she graciously allowed me to stop for a cache. This one looked like it would be quick, and like it was in a nice location, so I chose it. It was indeed quick and in a nice location. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

Scout It Out

By: Little"D" Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

This cache was on my "nearest to church" list, so I dropped by. There were more than a dozen mini-muggles nearby, having a great time launching their homemade water rockets. So I waited. This is an interesting memorial. It's clearly seen better days, but it remains as a tribute to Mr. Sheridan and the investment he made in the lives of others.

Eventually, all the mini-muggles had had had 2 turns launching their homemade water rockets, and it was snack time. They all disappeared i nside and I began my search. It turned out that the first thing I checked was the cache, but I didn't check "thoroughly" enough. Eventually, I had checked everywhere else, and checked the cache one more time. I hope this camouflage doesn't lead to the real thing being damaged by overeager geocachers . TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

The Pizza Casa

By: geovan03 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I managed to find parking very nearby, which was surprising at the beginning of the dinner rush. I read several past logs before leaving my car, given the location. As I looked around, one thing stood out, and sure enough, it was the camouflaged cache. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

I visited Alameda to grab a few quads for the [url=http://coord.info/GCYNR9]BAQC[/url]. This was the first, at a very pleasant spot to enjoy the summer morning on the beach. I did a bit of CITO while searching for and replacing the cache. Discovered [url=http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?tracker=TBGBQD]Red Anstruther Trawler TB[/url].

I visited Alameda to grab a few quads for the [url=http://coord.info/GCYNR9]BAQC[/url]. This was the second, at a very pleasant spot to enjoy the summer afternoon on the beach. The log was almost full, so I left a weatherproof log and stash note. T a polymer clay token, L foreign coins and my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

Just Like Mother Used to Manufacture

By: DragonsWest Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

When I ride along this frontage road, I usually take the bike lane rather than the trail because the bike lane has smoother pavement and fewer "obstacles" (aka pedestrians). But not all the "bicyclists" along this trail were traveling at high speed today... [;)] TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. Thanks for the excuse to walk along the baylands this beautiful afternoon, and TFTC!

TBAS #10 of 15

By: seanatron Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

This was on my "nearest to home" list, so I dropped by this evening to find it. It was indeed a quick find. I've recorded the sentence, and eventually I hope to solve the bonus mystery/puzzle cache. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

Super "Ball"

By: Little"D" Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

This cache was near the top of my "nearest to church" list, so I decided to drop by to search for it this morning. Wow... you weren't kidding about this place being busy on weekday mornings. Fortunately, I didn't have to wait long for the miniature muggles and their parents to clear out, and then I found the cache quickly. I definitely like this hide location better than that of the last cache I found in this cul-de-sac. TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig token, SL. TFTC!

The Walking Schoolbus

By: virtualdavid Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I was in the area this evening, and this cache was on the list of nearby caches so I decided to drop by and search for it. I spotted the hiding spot quickly, thanks to the excellent coordinates. Wow... Stanford's Escondido Village sure has changed a lot since the last time I was here! TN, L my [url=http://nirad.sigitem.com/]trackable[/url] sig tokens, SL. TFTC!
