Prologue

We had tried to find this Geocache once before and failed.  Ted and Tom accompanied me on this DNF. We parked at the recommended coordinates and hiked in the trail to the first spot the GPSr indicated. After a minute of looking around the GPSr indicated a different spot 30 feet away. It went like this for half an hour without any success. But because of this we managed to find several concrete slabs, one hollow foundation, a couple large slabs and some steps.

We found no micro and no ammo can. We could see from the logs that someone else was there as well so it was just us.  We also spent some time fishing in this hollow tree.

We decided to go back when it's warmer.

We loaded up a snack bag and hit the road.  The cache is only a couple miles away so it really wasn't a big deal!

Ted, Tom and I were planning to visit this one earlier but it was very cold outside so we decided to wait. Later, it got sunny and fooled us into thinking it was not cold outside. We parked again and this time went directly to the first stage with no trouble. The coordinates are much better, thanks! Quite a difference from where we were looking last time.

The first time we came here the cache location was not easy to find.  We found the micro this time right away.  The cache owner had updated the coordinates and this time they were right on.

This time, we found the final cache in good condition, actually more obvious for attempts to make it hard to find!
