Last Wednesday evening I was twiddling my thumbs waiting at the Palo Alto train station with 20 minutes to kill. After about 15 minutes, I turned on my GPSr to see if there were any caches nearby. This cache popped up and I saw the parking lot directly across the tracks.

This week I went right for this cache when I realized I had some time to spare. I approached from the wrong direction and couldn't enter the garage from Alma, so I ended up parking in the Caltrain lot.

It took me a while to find the haikus and I was still confused until I saw them on all the levels. I got some of the answers, but others I wasn't so sure about. I tried some coordinates, but didn't find the cache. I went and looked at the haikus again, but still couldn't figure out some of the answers, so I decied to try the brute force method. I searched for a long time before I encountered an object that made sense with the hint. Inspecting throughly I finally found the cache.

Thanks for pointing this one out. Now I know where to park next time I'm caching in downtown PA! Posted by jeff at October 15, 2003 07:04 PM
