Baseball Dream Team

By: The Ninja Duck Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I'm so sorry. When I replaced the cache, the camouflage broke. I couldn't figure out a good way to re-hide the cache, so I took it and the broken camouflage with me.

Stamp Exchange

By: E.caballus Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

The description page needs to be updated to indicate the correct size and type of container. It is no longer a Small container and it is no longer "a Rubbermaid container, about pint size". And since the cache had migrated some distance before I returned it to a location that matches the description page, it's probably a good idea for the owner to make sure it's hidden where it's supposed to be hidden.

Blink and You'll Miss It

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

I used in the last available space on the log, although I'm sure creative cachers could squeeze in a few more signatures if they had to.

Old Technology

By: OneAngryPuppy Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I was in the area and found the lid of a film canister on the ground. I checked the hiding spot, but it was empty. Sorry. :-(

Speed Ease

By: Rocket Girl and DuckeyLee Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

The container is missing its lid. There is an improvised flap of duct tape for now, but it won't last long.

Mind-Parole

By: workerofwood Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

I finally had the "aha moment" yesterday. I really enjoy puzzles like this, once I figure them out. SMILIE This morning, I reached GZ, looked around, and found a likely hiding spot. However, the location turned out to be incapable of holding a cache. Thinking about it, a decon container probably wouldn't have fit. Anyway, I checked the hint and found the cache shortly thereafter.

Or rather, I found th e remnants of the cache shortly thereafter. [:(] Something chewed up the decon container pretty badly. I looked around, but didn't find any of the cache contents. Sorry.

Shopping by Numbers

By: Sierra Hikers Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I dropped by again this morning before work, armed with a more specific description of the hide location from the owner. It isn't there. Sorry. [:(]

Clapper Rail View

By: mjp303 Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

It looks like the orientation of [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GCMJ3K]Gossmer Cove Lagoon (GCMJ3K)[/url] may have helped it drain. This one uses the same kind of container, and it was full of water. I left a dry log sheet (with a "You found it!" page) in a fresh ziplock bag, but everything needs to be dried out and put in a waterproof container.

Eagle Park

By: DavidT21 & Fisherwoman Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I had noticed the logs saying this cache might be missing, so I dropped by when I was in the area. It wasn't where I had found it, or in any of the related spots where might have been replaced by a careless geocacher. It looks like it's gone. [:(]
