Take a ride on the trolley

We've been working on this one for quite a long time. We did the first one (Lockheed Martin) almost 7 months ago. As we expanded our caching radius, we've been picking up others until last weekend when I finally picked up Snell and Branham so I had all the information I needed.
We still have one go to (Cottle), but we'll pick that up eventually anyway when we're in the neighborhood.

We drove to all of them (some of them multiple times) except for Moffett Park and Lockheed Martin which we walked to. We still have yet to ride the light rail, but we really should one day. I wish the nearest station wasn't exactly halfway between my house and my office.

It wasn't until recently that I even bothered to look at all the words we've been writing down and try to figure out what they meant. That part was easy though.

With the Red Ryder travelling cache to dispose of, I thought this would be the right night ride the trolley, so to speak. Found close parking (unlike my last time in the area) and found the cache easily - maybe a little too easily. It wasn't really covered and there was evidence of geomuggles around. All the contents were intact though.

It's been a while since I've found a cache with so much quality stuff in it. I took the wire cutters as mine seem to have run away some time ago and left two mini flashlights and a (wrapped) toothbrush in addition to Red Ryder (which isn't red at all). I tried to cover up the cache a bit better, but it's still kind of out there.

Thanks for all the work put into this series. It was fun and felt like quite an accomplishment to finish it.
