Tube It!

Why is it that only one AAA in the Bay Area (Walnut Creek) is open on Saturdays? Who has time between 8:30 and 5:30 to get their fill of maps? Well, the AAA served one good purpose - there was plenty of free parking in their lot just across the street from this cache. And we got to snicker as several people walked up to the door only to realize it was closed.

Anyway, this cache followed the typical arc of emotions - anticipation, curiosity, frustration, destitude then finally eureka and exhileration! There were lots of people around, so we made like we were waiting for someone several times, then darted in and out of the ivy to play with that strange tube.

When I put it back, I accidentally put it in backwards and realized that others would have a hard time getting it out. Luckily we were able to fix it and we were on our way.
